Director of RMS London
Tutor of Singing, Piano, Guitar, Bass Guitar and Elocution
Nicol is a professional singer and multi-instrumentalist who has a great enthusiasm for helping her students to discover and nourish their gifts and talents. She has been teaching for over seven years now. She completed all grades in classical piano, and up until now has performed in 10 different countries as a jazz vocalist at prestigious venues with recognised international musicians. She has recorded an album of jazz standards and has released a music video which has received an overwhelmingly positive response by her audience, as well as attracting sponsors for her future releases.
Nicol brings her broad experience and knowledge of music to the table and caters to the abilities of the student, making lessons an enjoyable self-discovery of the world of music within us! She has taught students as young as 4 years old to 60+ years old, so is very adaptable to the student's level and needs. In her lessons she incorporates performance, theory, technique and improvisation: knowledge she has acquired from the multiple instruments she knows. Nicol teaches singing (pop, rock, contemporary, jazz, theatre, folk, world), piano (classical), bass guitar (contemporary, pop, jazz, rock), guitar (acoustic) and elocution.
Nicol also offers specialist courses in singing.

"My daughter can't wait for her Thursday lessons with Nicol! She loves singing with Nicol and has learnt so much from her, from technique to performance skills. For several years now, since my daughter was a child, and now is a teenager, Nicol has led her in the right direction. My daughter's voice has evolved, I am so proud of the lessons with Nicol: she has an amazing personality and can inspire absolutely anyone to sing! My younger son was so interested in the lessons that his sister had, he has started singing lessons and guitar lessons with Nicol." - Adriana
"I loved my lessons with Nicol, she is fun, encouraging and full of energy. I improved so much with Nicol! I enjoy music and playing the piano thanks to her ability to make you feel as passionate as she is for music! A really positive and super inspirational teacher!" - Alex, age 10
"Lucy was an extremely shy girl who had selective mutism. Our last resort was to try singing lessons. We tried with one teacher but Lucy didn't seem to click with her. Then we contacted Nicol, and in the first lesson Lucy began to speak. In the second lesson she began to sing quietly, and in the third lesson she started to sing her heart out! We discovered that Lucy had a talent for singing, as Nicol helped her to discover her absolute pitch. We are proud to say that Lucy passed her singing exam for secondary school!!! Without Nicol we don't know where our daughter would be now, she has inspired her to enter the beautiful world of music and expression. NICOL DOES WONDERS!" - Juliet and Matthew
"Nicol taught our son when he was in year 5 and year 6. He was a beginner and she had a lot of patience with him and made it a fun lesson with not just playing, but the theory too. She has given him a love of piano which is great to watch and listen. When Nicol went on to pastures new and moved out of the area we tried a few teachers, but no one has quite matched up to her teaching." - Deena
"I've been having singing lessons with Nicol for three years now. She has taught me breathing techniques, techniques that are tailored for the individual, presentation, music theory and performance skills. I highly recommend Nicol's specialist lessons for advanced students like myself, as she delves deep into the material you didn't know you need, and makes it understandable and practical. I regularly perform concerts around London and my specialist lessons with her have allowed me to develop not only musically but personality wise on the stage, which I am extremely grateful for. I've also started guitar lessons with her to develop my knowledge with her. Thank you Nicol!" - Selina
