Perfect! Nicola is a fantastic teacher. I had no singing or music education but but he was patient to go over the basics, sharing a lot of educational materials. His approach to teaching is gentle and always encouraging. I would wholeheartedly recommend him.
Few lessons with Aron, and already I can see a big change in his voice.
A bit of practice will give us great results.
It’s always a pleasure when I have a class with you!
Really excellent....interesting, informative, engaging and confidence boosting
Great teacher, friendly and easy to get on with. Is good at modern techniques, which is great given how many classical singers they are compared to more contemporary singers. (I'm a rock singer personally).
Nicola is clearly passionate about unlocking his students singing potential. He brings a really friendly vibe to each lesson which keeps me looking forward to next, and within just 2 months in I have noticed my singing voice go from a closed, unconfident sound to a much more open, controlled one. I would Highly recommend Nic to anyone looking to strengthen their voice and to amend any bad techniques and habits that most of us aren't aware we have.
