Nicole Newcombe

Piano, Vocals, Music Theory.


I have been teaching music for over twenty-five years, firstly in a school setting and since 2014 from my own home where I run my business called VivoVoce Music Tuition. I strive to build confidence in all my pupils, as well as good technique, as I believe that this will achieve the best results when performing. I have a passion for all types of music and teach all genres from rock/pop - folk - musical theatre - classical. Over the past eight years, I have entered many pupils for RSL exams. I have a 100% pass rate, with the vast majority of my pupils achieving either merits or distinctions.

Additional Information

At University I studied for a degree in theatre which allowed me to sing and act regularly. I also achieved a scholarship at university to continue and improve my own vocal training, allowing me to gain a Singing Diploma. On leaving university, I went on to further my studies to qualify with a P.G,C.E.. My career as a teacher began in 1994, where I continually worked as a subject coordinator for music in schools. In 2014, I set up my own company called Vivovoce Music Tuition and I have been working from home since them, offering one to one tuition.
