My name is Nicole Alexandra and I am a recording artist and private music teacher in voice, piano, and violin - both acoustic and electric, along with songwriting, ear training, improvisational skills, and music theory. I have many group workshops each semester as well.
In 2012, I received my BA from Berklee College of Music in Boston with a Songwriting Degree. I am in an original soul band getting ready to release my new self-titled EP this September 17th, 2015!
My private lesson rates are $30/half hour, $45/45 minutes, and $60/hour. I recommend a full hour for adults and older children, plus advanced or more serious younger students.
I offer private lessons in the following locations:
* Home studio in Brighton, MA
* In-home lessons
I am a certified instructor in the body-based Somatic Voicework, the LoVetri Method. I have had extensive training in classical music and contemporary styles such as pop, rock, R&B, soul, musical theater and jazz/blues.
I work with children and adults of all ages and levels. In addition to focusing on technique, I work with students on improving their stage performance and original artistry. I provide many performance opportunities each semester including my biannual studio student showcases.
Also lesson gift certificates are available!
