Singing Teacher

Specialist 1-2-1 Singing lessons with Nikki Warrington based in Huddersfield. A highly experienced and established teacher.

I have been teaching singing for over 25 years and have vast experience of teaching all different styles of music, as well as teaching students of all ages and abilities. As welll as a very busy private practice, my current singing posts are at Bootham School, York and Huddersfield Grammar School.

I am immensely proud that my students have 100% pass rate in exam results and 82% of these have achieved passes with merits and distinctions.

My students have had great success in music competitions and have won many awards this year, including the Adjudicator’s Prize in the Youth section of the Great North Big Band Jazz Festival as well as the Best Soloist Prize in the Open competition. Please take a look at the latest exam and competition results here.

I have had several students gain places in Yorkshire Youth Choir and the National Children’s Choir of Great Britain, the National Youth Choir, National Youth Theatre and The National Youth Music Theatre.

I am thrilled that I have had several students who have gone on to attend specialist music colleges and theatre schools to further their training and study for a degree at CAPA, ArtsEd, Mountview, Birmingham School of Acting, LIPA, London Studio Centre, SLP, ACM and BIMM (London & Manchester)

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!
