WELCOME TO NICOLE'S MUSIC GARDEN
WATCH YOUR CHILD BLOSSOM THROUGH THE WONDER OF MUSIC!
Individual private lessons for children & adults
I believe piano lessons develop the joys of musical expression by building self-esteem and self-discipline. I have many years of experience teaching musical expression through the instruction of sequential musical skills, varied repertoire, sight reading, ear-training, music theory and technique. I design my lessons according to my students’ needs, with an emphasis on confidence-boosting activities. I teach out of my home studio near historic Roswell.
Classes for babies, toddlers and caregivers
There is a lot of research that shows the benefit of early music education, but to me the best part is having fun exploring music with your baby or toddler! I teach classes using Musikgarten’s industry leading curriculum. Musikgarten classes have a profound impact on children- from helping them learn to appreciate music and become budding musicians to providing an outlet for creativity, expression, and the boundless supply of energy they have.
Due to the Pandemic I have taken a break from family music classes. I hope to resume soon.
Choirs for children age 3 to 5th grade
I have been teaching children to use their voices confidently for over 20 years. First as an elementary school music teacher and now as a children's choir director. I am the Director of Children's Choirs at Dunwoody United Methodist Church. Helping children learn to use their voices to participate in and lead worship is a passion of mine. I believe singing in a choir provides many benefits, not just the obvious of learning to sing, read music and enjoy performing but also helps provide a fundamental connection to the physical joy of singing and forms lasting friendships.
“Nicole Norgaard provides piano lessons that are not only fun for my daughters, but she also delivers instruction in an easy to follow and learn teaching format. My children enjoy their daily homework assignments and continue to grow in their talents including composing their own songs. I've even recommended her to several of my friends and look forward to many more years of lessons."
