Nicole G

Instruments:

Welcome! Thank you for visiting my page!  I'm Nicole, a professional opera singer and passionate, dedicated voice teacher who loves to help students find their true voices and develop fine artistry in all types of musical genres. Originally from New York City. I grew up in Hillsborough, New Jersey, and graduated from Ithaca College with a Bachelor of Music Degree in Vocal Performance. I recently completed a professional certificate program - the Artist Diploma in Early Music (Baroque Opera and Chamber Music) - at Cornish College of the Arts here in Seattle, WA.  I have been lucky to perform across the US, in Italy and in Germany. Recent hilights include my Seattle debuts performing as Venus in John Blow’s "Venus and Adonis" with Cornish Opera Theater and in concert through Seattle Early Music Guild. I will be joining the cast of Amherst Early Music Festival's opera production of Purcell's The Fairy Queen in July 2013. I've had the amazing opportunity to perform in ensemble behind Kristin Chenoweth at the MET Opera, and in choral ensembles in New York at Alice Tully Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Symphony Space, Carnegie Hall, with the NYC Ballet at the NY State Theater, and behind Brian Stokes Mitchell for a recent Actor's Equity Gala. As a Baroque specialist, I am member of Early Music America, and as a published lyricist, I am a member of ASCAP (the American Society for Composers, Authors, and Publishers).

Instruments:

I am an enthusiastic and motivated instructor who loves teaching music and working with kids!  After receiving my Bachelor of Music at Washington State University, I began my professional singing career as a production singer on cruise ships, traveling all over the world to exotic ports of call in Asia, Africa, and Europe. Some of the companies I worked for included Norwegian Cruise Lines and Celebrity Cruises. I love musical theatre and have performed at Village Theatre, Tacoma Musical Playhouse, Harlequin Productions, and Florida Studio Theatre. I am a regular music director for Village Theatre's KIDStage program and teach groups of kids ages 5-18. Melissa has been a professional piano accompanist since she was 15 years old. She has taught piano for many years and has musical directed for several educational programs, including Tacoma Musical Playhouse, Studio East, Kidstage, and Broadway Bound. She has been teaching ages 5 to 65 for over 15 years now.

Music is my life, and I love to share my passion with others! I graduated from Berklee College of Music in 1997, majoring in Music Production and Engineering and Voice. I have been producing music for 20 years, and I have been teaching voice and piano off and on for 18 years. I am a singer songwriter, and I play with my band every other week.

More Information About Piano Lessons

We recommend that students get either a full size piano, or an 88-key, weighted hammer action keyboard for their lessons and practice. A real acoustic piano will provide the most satisfying learning experience, however, due to the costs and size of the instrument, a keyboard is often the more convenient option. Weighted keys will respond most like those of an acoustic piano, and keyboards have the added bonus of being portable and compatible with headphones. The most popular brands of keyboard or digital piano are Yamaha, Casio, Korg and Roland.
Music lessons in your home offer a convenient option to learning music! Most of our students request in home lessons for this reason. As long as you have a piano or keyboard in your home, then you should be all set to start your lessons! Children who have never played an instrument before may feel more comfortable studying in their own home, as it may be less intimidating than going somewhere else. In home lessons decrease the time and gas money spent traveling to a different location.
Students at different levels of their piano playing will require different aspects of piano playing to be covered during their lessons. Beginners will start out learning the basics, intermediates will be applying the foundations to more complex compositions and advanced players will want to hone a few specific skills or styles. The basic things that beginner students will learn are things such as; learning the notes of the piano, posture and playing technique, scales and chords. At this level, students will learn simple scales and chords, such as major and minor chords, and start to put some of the basic techniques into practice via simple songs. Intermediate players will work on more exotic chords and playing such as diminished chords, 7th chords and applying these things to more challenging compositions. Advanced players can improve sight reading, improvisational abilities or work on genre specific techniques, such as Jazz or Blues. Throughout, students can develop their musical ear, reading and theory.
For adults who are looking to learn to play the piano, we recommend that they do so with some clear goals in mind. Maybe you want to learn to play some of your favourite songs, pass an exam or write your own music? Whatever the aim, our experienced teachers can help unlock the skills necessary to make those goals a reality. It can take time to develop the techniques and co-ordination required to play the piano to a competent level. However, playing the piano is a great stress reliever, keeps you mentally active and can help with your hearing and fine-motor skills.
Learning to play the piano as a child is a fun, rewarding and vastly beneficial to their overall development. Children can develop their motor-skills, dexterity and coordination through technical piano playing - learning scales, chords and correct fingering. Young students can also develop their concentration, listening skills and ability to master complex thought processes through theory, repertoire and student-teacher feedback. Learning to play the piano can also be character building, such as instilling a hard-working attitude, developing self-discipline and confidence through practice, taking exams, enter competitions or performing recitals.
