Nicole trained as a concert classical guitarist in Canada at the Montreal Conservatoire. Following the completion of her studies there, she returned to the UK to study for her BA(hons) in Music at Bristol University. A PGCE then completed her education. Teacher, musician, performer and composer, Nicole has been fortunate enough to have been able to combine a career in teaching with music. She has a love of ballet, having played piano for ballet schools for over 20 years, and decided to learn to dance as an adult. Her latest creative venture is The Yellow Box, a multi-discipline art show collaborating with local artists.
