Read what Nikki’s students have to say!

I was lucky enough to find Nikki and have been taking guitar lessons with her for a couple of years. I can’t recommend Nikki enough! Nikki is a wonderful guitar teacher. She breaks things down in a way that really works and is easy to understand from playing to theory. She really knows her stuff and is an extremely talented musician and teacher. She is very encouraging and patient. And to all those women out there considering joining Nikki’s Women’s School of Rock to learn guitar and one day join a band – because of Nikki that dream has come true for me!



“Nikki is a FANTASTIC guitar instructor! My wife gave me a lesson as a surprise for my bday. I absolutely LOVED IT and immediately felt like a ROCK STAR. Needless to say I signed up for more lessons with Nikki. After 1 lesson I was able to play a cool ELVIS song. Today I can play a number of songs incl. ELVIS, BEATLES, BOB MARLEY and others. Still at a beginner level but I improve after every lesson. I HIGHLY recommend Nikki as a your guitar instructor. She is just COOL, FUN and an AWESOME guitar player. Let her unleash the ROCKSTAR in YOU!!! = )

“Nikki is a very knowledgeable yet easy going instructor who is very patiently teaching me the nuances of chord structures and strum rhythms for pop and rock guitar. She is affordable, flexible, understandable, personable and giving me instruction at a level and pace that is allowing me to progress at the pace I have time to put into the guitar right now.

As we had hoped and anticipated, her course (Women’s Contemporary Rock Guitar) was an immediate success with each section fully enrolled during each of the four academic semesters in which it was offered. From the start, Ms. O’Neill was systematic and well-organized in her lesson plans, engaging and informative in her presentation, and, above all, very successful at establishing a classroom atmosphere that was open, supportive, and warmly energetic.

“Nikki is my guitar teacher and even though I get personal lessons from her each week, I use this book (Women’s Road to Rock Guitar) in between lessons to work on my skills. Nikki is the best.”
