"My life has revolved around music & performing for as long as I can remember"
At school, Nicole was awarded a music scholarship and studied piano, recorder, singing, french horn and trombone. She was a member of the Suffolk Youth Orchestra and regularly performed throughout East Anglia as one third of the St Felix Recorder Consort and nationwide with the Chapel Choir.
Her love of singing and theatre was cemented when, age 14, she was cast in the Britten-Pears Foundation’s production of Noye’s Fludde in Aldeburgh.
"Having performance opportunities as a child gave me the confidence to follow my dreams"
Nicole went on to study singing with the renowned soprano, Rae Woodland, in Snape and then accepted a coveted place at the Royal College of Music in London. At the RCM she studied singing with Elizabeth Robson and piano with Peter Element, was awarded the Giulia Grisi Prize for Singing, the RCM Italian Prize and graduated with a Bachelor of Music honours degree.
Nicole’s professional life has seen her perform at home and abroad and has included opera, oratorio, musical theatre and jazz as well as in films, television, theatre and radio as an actor and voice artist.
"For me, there are no boundaries in music: explore, experience and enjoy!"
As a vocal coach, Nicole works internationally with professional singers across all genres, actors, dancers and aspiring young performers. She also has a special interest in the rehabilitation of tired and damaged voices.
As a piano teacher, Nicole specialises in beginners of all ages and aims to provide a solid foundation for a lifetime of music making and musical appreciation.
"Not every child has a natural talent for music. But every child deserves the chance to learn, to experiment and to discover what place music will have in their lives"
