I started learning piano when I was four years old. My first piano teacher was incredibly good and I always had a lot of fun learning. These first experiences were extremely important to me, because I realized that music is what I like doing most. As a graduate of the National Music Academy “Pantcho Vladigerov” in Sofia (2012), I bring a depth of professional experience and knowledge to those who are eager to expand their talents and abilities. I have developed a unique teaching style that combines various piano and vocal techniques and I provide the tools and guidance needed to help all my students excel.
I appreciate and enjoy the work of classical composers like Alexander Scriabin, Sergei Rachmaninoff and Franz Liszt. I’m also fascinated by jazz artists like Bill Evans and Etta James. These musicians and their influence have helped me shape my musical identity and create unique connections between different styles and eras.
“Ms. Doykova is absolutely passionate about music and she strives to share her passion and abilities with her students through nurturing approach to learning and creative atmosphere. She is a very patient person and she always makes sure that everyone receives the necessary individualized attention and guidance.”

Success in learning frequently depends on finding the right instructor. Someone who knows the subject well and understands how to inspire others. I offer piano and vocal lessons in English and German language. My style focuses on skills training, but also emphasizes self-exploration and discovering a passion for something new. Take a look at the lessons I provide and choose the right one for you.I’m looking forward to hear from you and answer your questions.
“Nikoleta works hard to ensure children make solid and rapid progress. Her style is such that every child is given full encouragement and support while maintaining a strict approach to the discipline of individual practice and development. She is particularly good at encouraging those who are struggling to keep up or just need that extra bit of support. As such she has very strong empathy skills and can turn a child from having a negative outlook to adopting a positive attitude – an essential skill for all teachers.”
