Nicola launched "With Nicky" in January 2019. It is an online series of educational videos that intends to provide information, guidance, and support for young musicians throughout their musical and personal development. The content of these videos will also provide useful information for teachers looking to support their work with new ideas. “With Nicky” will eventually cover a broad range of questions and themes, but the first set of videos focus on Nicola’s own instrument – the violin.
Nicola delivers workshops, masterclasses and educational activities throughout the year, but time is always limited and the desire for follow up materials when the classes come to a close is ever growing. These videos mark the beginning of a long-term project that hopes to be a useful resource and friendly support to young musicians, amateur musicians, educationalists and anyone interested in instrumental music from all over the world.
The videos have been generously supported by ESTA UK, MiSST – The Andrew Lloyd Webber Programme, and Oasby Music Group and we are very grateful for their support.
Huge thanks to our media partners Charanga, Classic FM, The Strad, The Violin Channel and WQXR who will be sharing the videos with their audiences each week when released.
