From elementary school through college at UCLA, UCSB and beyond, Nico has studied, played, composed and performed piano as both a solo and ensemble artist. In 2008, Nico began playing live piano concerts via the internet to audiences around the world. Her performances flow between old school classical and free-form improv. Nico loves teaching and currently teaches music classes at several elementary schools in Sonoma County in addition to private lessons.
