Miss Nicki
  • I began playing piano at six. I have a passion for music and continued playing to play in the GMTA State Piano competition. After completing my degree at the University of Pennsylvania, I continued to play and teach. I have 20 years of teaching experience and love working with children. I use the Faber method (  for my beginning students. I enjoy working with children who are beginning to learn piano. My students range from age 4 to adults. 

  • I teach to share my passion of music. My students develop their ear, sight-reading, and comprehension. I work to create well-rounded students, sharpening their theory and expanding their musical skills. All of my students receive free access to the Piano Maestro app. I live in Santa Barbara.
