I was Nikki's Horn teacher at the RSAMD for two years and have no hesitation in recommending her both as a player and a brass teacher.

I tried to learn by using the Internet where you can have as many lessons as you like and they cost nothing. That, I discovered is what they're worth. I started looking for a real music teacher and made contact with Nicola. She is simply excellent and even if she was much further away I wouldn't go anywhere else.

My lessons with Nikki have significantly improved my technique on the French Horn and I have learned to play many varied pieces which are entertaining and enjoyable. Nikki's friendly teaching style has given me more confidence with performing and her brass expertise has broadened my ability and brought more fun to practicing. Thank you for all the enjoyable music lessons.

Nicola is an enthusiastic, supportive and knowledgeable teacher who has really helped me to play the piano with greater confidence. I really look forward to my weekly lessons, as she encourages me to challenge myself whilst also making sure we have fun. I wish I'd found her sooner!

I started lessons with Nikki as a complete beginner and I can't believe that I am now studying for my Grade 6. Playing a musical instrument is great fun and I enjoy my lessons with Nikki.

Learning the piano is what got me interested in music and I now play the violin as well.

Nikki is a great piano teacher, she is always so supportive and encouraging and also very friendly. She even makes the tricky things seem fun.

Nikki is an excellent music teacher. Her patience makes the learning experience enjoyable. My son passed first and second grade in piano with very high marks which shows Nikki's dedication to teaching music. She is a great music teacher and a nice and friendly person.
