Miss Nicole Payne

K-5 General/Vocal Music & Chorus Teacher

  • My name is Nicole Payne, and I teach General/Vocal Music for Kindergarten through Fifth Grade students at Hazel Avenue School. I also conduct the Fifth Grade Chorus. I have been teaching elementary music in the West Orange School District for four and a half years!

    In my classes, my goal is for my students to become tuneful, beatful, & artful individuals who will be able to achieve readiness in music literacy.


    Please feel free to look at my Teacher Site for further information about me!
