I'm Nicole Warner and I'm a classically trained mezzo-soprano. I'm an active soloist and small ensemble singer and I've sung everything from Bach's b minor Mass to Mozart's Requiem and from house concerts to funerals.
I live in my chosen home of Milwaukee, WI. My "day job" is running GermanWithNicole.com, where I teach German and coach German Diction, and the combination of music and language is really pretty awesome.
Enough about me, let's get to some fun facts.

I cannot tell a lie, the post-service reception is one of my favorite parts. Having...
A couple of months ago several other singer friends and I decided to start a group meeting and the entire purpose, beyond staying connected to people in this absolute 3-ring trash fire/dumpster fire/tire fire of a year was to simply share one good thing.
No matter how small, it all counts.
We've talked about conversations we've had, people we've connected with again, the stress of the current situation and all the things we do not know.
Among all of the stressful and horrible things we've...
On April 7th I offered a free German Diction class for singers and voice teachers and it was an absolutely lovely time.
There were singers and teachers from Virginia to Colorado and from one part of Minnesota to another.
Here's what we covered (and all of this in 90 minutes!):
- how the German vowel:constant ratio differs from English
- how German children learn to read and how that instructs singers on German diction
- the Ich-Laut
- the Ach-Laut
- pronouncing the German "w" or /v/ sound
- an overview...
