    I’ve been with Nicole for at least 5 years now and I have grown tremendously with her. I was looking for a singing teacher after my previous teacher passed away. I remember being really nervous for my first lesson but Nicole made me feel really comfortable. She noticed my talent but also found ways that I could improve. Since then, I’ve been having lessons every week with her and watching her company grow. She started to add other opportunities for her students like musical theater programs and ukulele lessons. I started doing musical theater with her and I got to meet her other students and I gained a best friend from that. In my private lessons, both Nicole and Russell help my vocal technique and because of that my vocal abilities have blossomed. Nicole and Russell also have seasonal recitals that help students become more familiar with performing in front of an audience. (I personally find that really helpful because I get nervous to sing in front of people sometimes) Nicole and Russell are both amazing teachers and have so much to offer!
