Nichola Hegarty Nichola Hegarty

When I was 3 years old I began Irish Dancing and went on to become a professional dancer when I was 15 living in Tennessee working for Dolly Parton performing the Riverdance, becoming the All Ireland Champion dancer a few times over. Rhythm and music has always been in my blood as my father is also a musician and my biggest inspiration. Ive been singing since I was an infant and I realised I had a passion for singing when I was 6/7 years old. This was when I began transcribing songs before I even knew what I was doing. While doing this I was unknowingly developing my technique by listening to a variety of artists and learning from them. I began going to guitar,piano and contemporary vocal lessons when I was in my early teens. When I turned 16 I decided to attend BCFE and achieved a diploma in music performance. From there I wanted to develop my technique so I went on to achieve grade 4 in classical singing. It was there where I decided to attend Newpark school of Jazz and it is here where I hope to receive my BA Honors Degree in jazz performance. I adore every type of music and hope to continue learning and meet amazing musicians along the way :)

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
