How you found your tuition and experience with Nikki …

“Nikki Warrington is one of the most inspirational teachers I have ever had. She is not only and incredible flautist, but an amazing teacher who helps you to develop all aspects of your musical life. She does this by supporting you in one-to-one lessons and helping you gain the qualifications you want or need, but also by giving you heaps of performance opportunities and encouraging ensemble participation. Nikki also prepares you for life, by providing you with advice and skills which are transferable and relevant to any career. Without Nikki I definitely wouldn’t be the musician, or person, I am today.”

“My son first began having lessons with Nikki when he started at Bootham School in Year 9. He had never had singing lessons before so this was a big deal for a teenage boy! He quickly realised that he had met someone who not only believed in his dream of studying Music Theatre, but who provided him with the training and vision for that study. He has subsequently gained a place at both CAPA College, Wakefield and onto his dream drama school Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts in London where he is currently studying a degree in Musical Theatre. It was Nikki’s training and determination, alongside her ability to nurture a teenage boy’s dream that gave him the confidence and wherewithal to get where he has so far. Thank you, Nikki. What a difference you have made!”
