About Nicole


Bio

I am a singer/songwriter/composer. I have a background in all musical genres and I especially love to write and perform contemporary, pop, rock, R&B, and theater. But I'm open to teaching whatever you're interested in learning! My focus here started with Jazz vocal students, but I have been fortunate enough to have students who all want to share and better their songwriting skills!

I am a singer/songwriter/composer. I have a background in all musical genres and I especially love to write and perform contemporary, pop, rock, R&B, and theater. But I'm open to teaching whatever you're interested in learning! My focus here started with Jazz vocal students, but I have been fortunate enough to have students who all want to share and better their songwriting skills!

Jazz is America's very first musical art form and it has not only inspired many genres globally but it has influenced many popular genres we listen to today. I recommend studying jazz to any student who is interested in immersing themselves into understanding the knowledge and beauty that goes into creating music, or any student who wants to one day become a professional musician. Nothing could prepare you better for the future music world than having grasped the jazz idiom. I learned my immense amount of knowledge while studying Studio Music and Jazz Vocal Performance at the University of Miami.

From my time there I have developed an even greater passion for music than I had before I went to college (whether I'm singing or writing the music and/or lyrics or a song). More so, I have gained a passion for making music with others (collaboratively and as a director). Now that I have finished school I think it would be truly rewarding to have the opportunity to show others what I know and potentially inspire them to further pursue a long lasting career in the world of music.

Composition (Music)

Composition (Music)

I am a composer myself. I have written charts for big bands, jazz vocal ensembles and for myself as a vocalist with a rhythm section. When writing lyrical tunes I always try to create a sense of musical prosody so the music matches whatever message I'm trying to invoke in my lyrics.

General Music,

General Music

I have been studying music for 17 years now. Music is my passion and I have gained so much of knowledge whether it pertains to theory, composition, lyric writing, solo performing or group performing. I have the tools needed to teach anyone the basics of music.

Songwriting,

Songwriting

I am a songwriter myself. I have written many songs of my own and have showcased them during performances I have had. During college I took several classes on songwriting which enhanced my abilities to create a good lyric. With the advanced lyric writing classes I have had, I learned many methods of how to begin writing a lyric, editing a lyric, and even tricks to get passed writers block.
Voice (Music),

Voice (Music)

I have a singing background in Jazz, Theater, Opera, and R&B, and contemporary music so I am prepared to teach whichever is requested. I have also learned a lot from the voice lessons I've had over the years (such as proper breathing techniques, and air support) so I have many ways to help a young singer develop a more mature singing voice.
