Nicole DiPaolo (ASCAP)



Welcome to my website! I am a pianist, composer, music theorist, and instructor based out of the Detroit (Michigan) and Cleveland (Ohio) areas. Here, you may find some information about me as an artist as well as purchase some of my compositions, including VENTURING BEYOND, my set of 20 early-intermediate piano solos in unusual keys, representing various 18th- and 19th-century genres.

I am available for solo and collaborative piano projects in the Cleveland area and remotely. Please contact me for more information! I specialize in vocal, intermediate violin, and light classical/crossover repertoire. View my collaborative piano and chamber repertoire list here:

I also offer music theory, aural skills, composition, and select piano lessons via Skype/Zoom! Please contact me if this interests you. Of course, I'm available for in-person lessons in piano performance, composition, music theory, and aural skills to students of all levels in the Cleveland area. I am among the few teachers in the area who maintains a special focus on teen and adult students (andragogy). My pedagogical specialties include piano instruction for adult beginners, tonal composition, idiomatic piano writing, all levels of undergraduate (and some graduate) music theory and aural skills, form and analysis, schema theory, and keyboard harmony. Please contact me for details and rates.
