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).

More Information About Voice Lessons

In order to maintain and develop singing ability, it is important to take care of the voice. To sing in a strong, full-sounding vocal tone through the whole range of the voice requires maintaining good vocal fold closure. Damaging or irritating the vocal folds can reduce their ability to close or compress and lead to problems. Mucus caused by allergies or illness can irritate the folds, as can sugary foods, smoking, alcohol and dehydration. Water, rest and avoiding problem substances or foods are the best ways to maintain vocal health. It is also important to warm up before singing.
When you want to sing better but don-™t have hours of extra time each week, you need in-home voice lessons. They-™re convenient and practical. A trained and professional Musika instructor comes to your home and uses your keyboard or piano to teach you how to sing better. Your instructor can help you choose a song that fits your voice or supervise your efforts to learn voice control. Don-™t let your busy schedule and to-do list keep you from improving your singing ability. Sign up for in-home voice lessons, and become the singer you want to be.
Students will learn and develop good, safe and effective vocal technique during their vocal lessons. The best way to build a strong, powerful voice is to learn the techniques and practice the exercises covered in lessons. The essence of good vocal technique is centred around being able to successfully bridge from the chest voice to the head voice, with no vocal breaks or noticeable change in tonality. To do this successfully requires strength, timing and coordination of the intrinsic muscles of the larynx, the ability to maintain good vocal fold closure and to tilt the thyroid cartilage. To do these things successfully students will also learn how to support their singing with breath management, as it is important that the air pressure above and below the vocal folds is balanced. During lessons, students will be taught the exercises in order to successfully master these skills. They will also learn about performance, stylistic and interpretive techniques and how to apply them to singing songs.
Voice lessons for adults will focus on adult-level technical exercises and repertoire choices. Lessons can be taught on various styles, and are tailor made to suit your style and skill level. If you are singing for the first time in your life, taking lessons as an adult is a great way to improve your musical skills.
Voice students are suggested to start lessons at age 12 or older. This is due to the vocal development of the student and the transition of the voice from childhood to adulthood. Beginning to study voice too young, can sometimes lead to decreased vocal production later on if the student is not receiving the proper training. We also encourage students who are younger than age 12 to study another instrument like piano, which will teach them basic music fundamentals, and help them if they decide to pursue voice at a later time.
