Pianist, accompanist, music teacher
Speech difficulties in her early life meant that Nicole Ng faced challenges in expressing her emotions and feelings through words. Learning the piano at the age of seven helped to develop her confidence and communication skills and she inspires others through her expressive playing and passion for music.
Guiding her aspirations of a creative career as a chamber repetiteur, piano teacher and collaborative pianist, Nicole is currently undertaking a performance teaching degree, studying with Caroline Almonte at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music (MCM).
Nicole is a busy and in-demand performer, educator, writer and mentor. She has performed with many chamber ensembles, freelanced as a collaborative pianist for music examinations and concerts, performed with orchestras (Melbourne Youth Orchestra, and Victorian Youth Symphony Orchestra), inspired future pianists through her piano teaching, featured as a writer in Rehearsal Magazine and in major blog platforms for the University of Melbourne (UniMelb Adventures, First_Year@UniMelb, and Back for Seconds).
