BORN TO PLAY

Natural Classical Musician

Nickie Whaley


I grew up in Nashville, TN. I first started the violin at the age of ten. I then moved to Jacksonville, Fl where I attended LaVilla School of the Arts. At LaVilla, I switched to the viola at age 14. I then attended and graduated from Douglas Anderson School of the Arts for viola. For college, I have attended Stetson and Belmont University. I then volunteered in the University of North Florida's Symphony Orchestra.  I have been a participant in classical music festivals such as International Strings Festival in Bryn Mawr, Penn. and also Eastern Music Festival in Greensboro, NC.


I currently teach the violin, viola, and beginner piano. I also perform the viola in ensembles, art walks, and hired performances here in Jacksonville, Fl.

I have a total of 17 years of trained musical experience. I aspire to be a professional musician.
