“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.”
“Nikki has been teaching my daughter for four and a half years. She has taught her flute, singing and music theory. I give Nikki my highest recommendation. Not only is she highly qualified, highly knowledgeable about music and has an impressive CV as an instrumentalist, Nikki is an exceptional teacher. I think she strikes the right balance between nurturing and challenging. No doubt children need to be motivated, but equally, if not more important for the development is constructive feedback and criticism. Thanks to Nikki, though flute is the third instrument my daughter picked up, she achieved Grade 8 with distinction within just over 3 years of study. This really is testimony to Nikki’s teaching quality”
“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!”
I am very pleased to give this testimonial for Nikki Warrington as my singing coach.
I started playing guitar three years ago and singing only six months ago. In the past six months Nikki has not only helped me discover my vocal range and made me believe in my singing ability, she has enhanced my all around ability as a musician and a singer/songwriter.
Today I still have lots to learn, but Nikki has shown me that with effort I can achieve my musical dreams.
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!
