Meet Your Coaches

Jeremie McNease

Ella Fitzgerald once said “the only thing better than singing is more singing.” The legendary vocal diva’s quote couldn’t be more befitting than of musical performer and educator Jeremie P. McNease. A Georgia native, McNease found comfort center stage at an early age and found himself performing on the historical stage of the Apollo Theatre in Harlem for the legendary show “Showtime at the Apollo.” Since then, McNease has performed nationally and internationally in the United Kingdom, Austria, and Italy.

Anchoring his skill with scholarship, Jeremie is a graduate of Georgia Southern University, where he received a Bachelors Degree in Music with a minor in Marketing. During his matriculation, he was an active member of the music department, participating in numerous Operas and recitals and attaining the title “Mr. GSU Idol”, the coveted top spot of talent within the institution.

Currently, Jeremie is a music educator in Fulton County, where he continues to groom countless young singers and produce memorable moments for them to showcase their talent. A firm believer in leading by example, McNease strives to be a better, more knowledgeable and active artist every day and accepts nothing less from those he works with. As a vocal coach he often impresses a special Stephen Sondheim quote on his students. “If I cannot fly, let me sing.”

Sharmayne Thomas

Sharmayne is a singer, songwriter, and classically trained vocalist from Cleveland, Ohio. Watching her mother sing and perform as a little girl, she developed a genuine love for music performance and started singing very early on. Sharmayne attended Kent State University where she studied classical music and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Music and a minor in Theatre.


Sharmayne has performed all over the Greater Cleveland area and has been casted for roles in musicals, such as Ragtime and Jesus Christ Superstar, as well as the Lifetime Original Movie With This Ring. Sharmayne has a passion for leading her students to be fearless in their craft and guiding them to become the best version of themselves.

Nikki Hollins

Nikita (Coach Nikki) is a singer/songwriter who hails from Detroit, Michigan. After winning several talent shows, vocal competitions, and obtaining titles in college such as “Best Singer” and “Wayne State Idol”, she began recording her EP and worked as a songwriter for major industry artists. 

Nikita is currently coaching voice and songwriting at Tara Simon studios and is also songwriting for Mbakop Films. She will also soon release an educational children’s album where she has taken popular songs and rewritten them with educational lyrics to create a fun, upbeat way to learn elementary facts. Some singles (The Solar System, Counting Money, Parts of a Cell, etc.) are already available on iTunes, with lyric videos on YouTube. Nikita has collaborated with several industry producers, and popular singers from Sony, BMI to make this project a success.

Nikita effortlessly spreads her industry experience, talent, and love of music to each student, in each lesson, because she vehemently believes that if you love to sing and you’re willing to put in the work, you can be a wonderful singer. She teaches not only the technical aspects of singing, but encourages artists to discover the passion behind it. Nikita also assists in vocal producing during studio sessions for artists, and helps with the entire process of getting your original music out of your head and into the speakers. Whatever your reason is for wanting to get better, Coach Nikki will create a clear path for you to achieve your goals.
