Testimonials from students:

I have taught many students over the years. Here are a few of their testimonials…

“My daughter has progressed beautifully”

“Nicolette has been teaching my daughter the violin for five years, both in school and at her home. My daughter has progressed beautifully and is preparing for her Grade 4 exam.

I have seen my daughter’s confidence flourish, thanks to Nicolette’s calm and controlled nature. She is always on hand to give advice and helped us to purchase our daughter’s 3/4 violin. Nicolette always gives clear instructions for practice at home and ensures that this is understood.”

“Highly recommended”

“I am very pleased with my 6 year old daughter’s progress. Importantly, she remains genuinely interested in learning and still finds the piano fun – which is a testament to Nicolette’s teaching methods and manner.

Nicolette is calm, considered, firm but always kind. She mixes up playing pieces with bits of fun theory and even writing mini tunes – all of which I’m sure has helped my daughter not only learn the notes but also begin to appreciate musical ‘building blocks’.”

“Great teacher with tremendous attention to detail”

“I started as an adult beginner with Nicolette two years ago. She is a great teacher with a tremendous attention to detail who always challenges me to improve in every aspect of my playing.

I take lessons at her house, which has a lovely music room; she can also play the piano which is really useful when supporting the accompaniment of graded pieces. Since I started learning with her, I’ve passed my Grade 1 exam (distinction), Grade 2 exam (merit), Grade 3 exam (distinction) and am about to take my Grade 4. A huge part of my development is Nicolette’s superb guidance and support.

Overall, it’s been a great experience learning with Nicolette and I can highly recommend her!”
