About Nikita F.

Singing is not just about the method or the technique,
Singing is about the process,
Singing is connecting with your audience.
Singing is connecting with the artist inside of you,
connecting with the world,
reacting to what we see.
Singing is a transaction of energy.
Singing can really be anything you want it to be because singing is exactly what you make it.

| Testimonials |

"I am thrilled with the progress I am making with Nikita. In my first lesson, I said I was tone-deaf. Now just five lessons on, I am able to hold a tune and can sing with confidence. I am so excited to continue working with Nikita's guidance. I am a visual learner and she helps me understand how to use and project my voice by explaining techniques in different ways. Zoom lessons are enjoyable, affordable and great value!" ​- Jacqueline Freeston.

"I have learned more with Nikita than in the two-year performing arts course I studied. I feel more confident with singing now I have learned to understand how to use my voice and breathing. Nikita is really nice to work with and easy to understand, which makes each lesson enjoyable. I look forward to achieving more as the weeks go on." - Ellie Freeston.

"Nikita is a wonderful teacher who inspires me to sing more and more, lesson after lesson. I had never sung properly before being taught by her and from the start, she was able to explain concepts and techniques to me simply and was able to adjust lessons to accommodate my own singing goals. Sessions were never dull and I am a far more confident singer now than I ever thought I would be!" - Charlie English.


"I finally took a leap of faith and went on the hunt for a vocal coach. Within the next day Nikita had made contact with me and the first lesson was booked. To say that I am so grateful the others never came back to me is an understatement. Maybe it was fate? Nikita makes the whole experience really relaxed and this was a big help having never really performed in front of people. As the lessons have progressed it has become even easier and what I have gained over just a few months of lessons is amazing...
...In this short time, I can honestly stay that I have seen such an improvement. Not just from my vocals, but understanding the theory of what I am learning and doing. Nikita's support and her skill in explaining things in a manner that works for me has made me self-belief start to shine. If you're searching/thinking about getting some vocal coaching, then search no more." - Ross Halfpenny.
