I'm Nicole and a music major on a budget, so I am always looking for ways to save money and still get a great piano. I compose music for fun and for school, and love being able to create amazing new sounds. As a resident of the Big Apple I have the unique opportunity to visit all of the clubs, and hear all of the new songs before they are popular. I enjoy collaborating and mixing with other DJs, and watching the different reactions when my music is played. When I am not studying, you can normally find me in the studio.
