Online/Hybrid Piano, Theory or Composition Lessons
Mission: To ensure that students not only achieve their goals, but also find joy in the learning process! 
I am deeply committed to fostering a genuine interest in music with each student and ensuring that they feel a sense of fulfillment and accomplishment after lessons. I tailor my lessons to the unique interests of each individual because I believe that students thrive when engaged in activities they love. While I cover essential fundamentals in every lesson, my emphasis is on understanding and addressing the specific interests that motivated the student to embark on this learning journey.

All ages welcome, from pre-k to adult.

Why N. Russell Music Studio?
There are many places to take online music lessons. While some may offer lower costs, it often comes at the expense of lesson quality and the instructor's expertise. Many larger studios with multiple teachers adhere to standardized lesson plans without investing the necessary time to truly understand each student. In contrast, when I'm not actively teaching, I'm working on crafting and refining lesson plans, creating personalized worksheets, and searching for music that aligns with each student's interests and addresses the specific skills they can refine. I give each and every student the individual attention they deserve so they can succeed. 
Nicole was a perfect fit for my daughters! Kids were engaged and enjoyed her warm personality. Always patient, always kind. You'll be in good hands with Nicole :)

Miss Nicole is a fantastic instructor! She was extremely patient with my daughter and was very accommodating to our crazy schedule. We really enjoyed having her as a piano teacher.

Nicole started to teach piano lessons to my then 3yo son. She's very professional and as well as accommodating whenever we have conflict with our schedules. She's very patient and good with kids. We've been doing in person lessons with her for years and then this year, covid happened and also Nicole had to move to NY but we are still doing lessons with her, virtual learning style. We are so glad that even with the current set up, my son, now 7yo, still enjoying and learning more from her.
Beginner to advanced, all skill levels and all ages. Study with an expert piano teacher through zoom. Take a private virtual piano, theory, or composition classes from the comfort of your own home. Nearby in the NYC area or across the country, all students welcome! Do not hesitate to email me with any questions before setting up an online piano lesson.
