About Nikki

Are you wanting to start lessons and don’t know how to find the right teacher?

Are your current lessons just not the right fit for you?

Do you feel unmotivated to practice?

(I have been there!)

Do you want to achieve more, perform more consistently and achieve your goals?

Do you already sing in a choir or play with an ensemble and want to improve your skills?

Did you take music lessons in school and would love to return to it or maybe it is something you always wanted to do but never had the opportunity?

I am Nikki and I teach people like you who want to achieve their goals and turn your musical dreams into reality.

It probably doesn’t shock you, that I’d love you to love music as much as I do.

Like most people, my journey hasn’t always been easy, I was painfully shy as a young child and struggled with confidence. My parents found it difficult with no real musical knowledge to find a teacher that was the right fit for me, a person who could indeed bring the best out of me and give me the confidence and skills to achieve my goals.

I know and understand that the right lessons, with the right teacher, can open the door to a whole range of musical experiences, hours of fun and a lifetime of fulfillment.

My Story

Music has been the biggest part of my life for over 40 years. From playing the recorder at primary school to today, the joy it brings is immeasurable.

Despite my parents’ lack of musical background, music filled our home. Listening to artists like Shaft, Isaac Hayes, Earth Wind and Fire, and Dr Hook shaped my musical upbringing.

Primary school introduced me to music and having the opportunity to play the recorder and tuned percussion and to take part in the school orchestra, and choir.

My secondary school, known for its musical tradition, immersed me in singing, choirs and musicals and this is where I started individual music lessons initially in singing and recorder, then switching to the flute at the age of 14.

My singing teacher encouraged me to participate in my first music festival at the age of 11 and although I didn’t win, being on stage felt both scary and satisfying. Over the next few years I won many competitions and took all of my ABRSM exams and a Diploma in Music Performance too.

Choosing to pursue music as a career was an easy decision and I was fortunate to have the opportunity to continue to study flute, singing and piano.

From my second year at university I began my teaching journey.

Teaching became my true passion. I wake up each day excited for long teaching sessions at school, university, or home. Witnessing my students’ progress and enjoyment brings me immense satisfaction. I still perform reggularly, but teaching is absolutely my calling.
