Bio

I have a bachelors and masters degree in voice performance and a masters degree in vocal pedagogy. I have been a professional opera singer for over 10 years. I teach all genres of music and base my teaching on a healthy vocal technique.

About Heart of Singing

Nicole’s approach to vocal training and the art of singing is based on the Bel Canto Technique or the “beautiful singing” technique. She will help you develop great singing line, help you release all singing tension, coach you to help you find your artistic voice, and help you find your natural, relaxed, and best voice.

She enjoys teaching beginners, as well as helping professional singers perfect their technique. She believe in a positive approach to teaching and in full body awareness.

Nicole enjoys teaching a wide variety of musical styles. Her students are opera, music theater, jazz, and commercial singers.

Nicole also teaches beginning and intermediate piano lessons for all ages.
