ALICIA CADWGAN - SINGING, PIANO, KEYBOARD & CLARINET WELLINGTON MUSIC TEACHER
Music is a big part of Nicole’s life. Her musical journey began when she started learning the piano from the tender age of four. Her passion for music saw her take her piano performance all the way to DipABRSM (Royal School) and ATCL (Trinity College) level in 2012.
As a college student, Nicole was part of the New Zealand School of Music’s Young Musician’s Programme (formerly known as the Academy) from 2008-2012. She found it to be such a rich and rewarding experience that she decided to study music at Te Toki New Zealand School of Music and graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor of Music under the guidance of Dr Jian Liu and Richard Mapp.
Nicole has participated in competitions such as 2015 National Wallace Piano Competition and performed in a myriad of solo concerts at venues such as Expressions Arts and Entertainment Centre and the Tairāwhiti Museum.
In 2017, Nicole will be actively pursuing another one of her passions - teaching. She is excited to begin her Graduate Diploma of Teaching at Victoria University to further hone her teaching skills and help her bring out the potential in her students.
Nicole has taught at different music centres and is experienced in teaching primary and intermediate aged children. She is looking forward to helping her students at Encore! School of Music develop their musical skills and hone their love and enjoyment of music!
