“Whenever I see Nikki, she always puts a gigantic smile on my face. She gives me such confidence in singing and has allowed me to see that I can do anything if I put my mind to it.
Nikki has such an incredible and encouraging way of teaching, which always leaves me feeling proud and bubbling with excitement.
Since my first lesson with Nikki, I have seen an overwhelming improvement in my vocal technique, confidence, and story-telling skills, there is never a dull moment in Nikki’s lessons when I am not learning. She really brings the best out of me and I am so grateful for her wonderful teaching. I am constantly inspired by Nikki and I absolutely love my singing lessons with her!”

Over my 4 years of being taught by Nikki I went in as a very timid dancer who had never sung before and now after Nikki's tireless patience with me and giving me all the tools to find my voice I have gained confidence and passion for singing.
My weekly lessons are filled with joy, challenges and care. Nikki has such a phenomenal way of teaching and explaining things to make sense for the individual. Even now transferring to zoom her energy and skills set shine through the camera and Nikki has guided me to reach notes and explore songs that I never thought was possible.
Nikki’s vocal lessons are everything you could ask for and more. She always takes extreme care to ensure that you understand what is needed to help you develop. From altering the way you talk about yourself, to a plethora of exercises to even asking how much water you’ve had to drink, Nikki finds ways to elevate your voice in methods you wouldn’t think to be true. She also takes extreme care in understanding you and ensuring she connects with you on a deeper level.
Nikki’s singing lessons haven’t only helped me sing, but they’ve also helped me in life, teaching me that it’s okay to be myself and it’s okay to be vulnerable. Whether you’re an aspiring actor, musician or someone who just wants to sing, Nikki will give you the best training and advice to help you find your sound and find yourself.
“Nikki has patiently taught our son how to sing with his new ‘broken’ voice. As a result of the one-to-one lessons the confidence he had lost in his vocal ability has been completely restored and he is happy to perform again. We highly recommend Nikki.”
