Flute Teacher

Personalised flute lessons with Nikki Warrington, an experienced and established teacher.

I have been teaching the flute and singing privately for over 25 years and as well as a very busy private practice, my current posts are at Bootham School, York, Mount St. Mary’s College and Huddersfield Grammar School.

I have also held posts at Rosemeade School and the Blackburn School of Music.

I am proud that my students have a 100% pass rate in the ABRSM music exams with over 82% achieving merits and distinctions.

My pupils have had great success both locally and nationally in competitons. I have had students win the Kirklees Young Musician of the Year competiton and awarded prizes at the Adams Flute Factor in the Netherlands, as well as being prize winners at the prestigious Galway Flute Festival in Weggis, Switzerland.

Students past and present have performed with Kirklees Youth Orchestra, Yorkshire Youth Orchestra, Yorkshire Young Sinfonia, The Halle Youth Orchestra, The Young Sinfonia, The National Children’s Orchestra,  The National Children’s Wind Sinfonia, The National Children’s Wind Orchestra, The National Children’s Chamber Orchestra, The National Youth Wind Ensemble, The National Youth Chamber Orchestra and The National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain.

It has been an absolute joy to have several of my students go on to study music at degree level gaining places in the countries leading Universities and Music Colleges and have been awarded scholaships.

Nikki is the founder and Musical Director of The Mistral Trio and Les Six Flute Ensemble both prize winning ensembles that have been winners in National competitions.

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!”

Nikki has been teaching my son singing lessons for the past 2 and a half years and I can honestly say that she has been fantastic in every way!

Her teaching skills are incredible. She has a way of explaining things which just seems to click. My son’s voice has improved so much and many people have commented on the change. He has learned how to control his voice and extend his range in a way that would not have been possible without Nikki’s coaching. He has also gained in confidence and is really motivated to push his voice to it’s limits and learn new styles and techniques.

Nikki has a lovely manner and style of teaching. She works my son hard in a really fun way with a lot of laughter thrown in.

She is really encouraging and motivating and I can’t recommend her highly enough!
