Los Angeles musician, Aimee Nolte is a jazz pianist, vocalist and thriving YouTube creator, constantly pursuing new recording, performing, and educational projects. Though primarily a jazz player, she knows over a thousand songs and can play them at the drop of a hat. Aimee earned her jazz piano degree from Brigham Young University In 1998 and has been an active and passionate musician ever since; even as a wife and mother of four! She has released three full-length albums so far that have been reviewed as deeply personal, captivating pieces of art. Downbeat praised her 2019 release, Looking For The Answers, raving that “What separates Nolte from other vocalists and composers is the poetry and storytelling quality of her compositions, with lyrics reminiscent of Joni Mitchell.”
In 2016, Aimee started her YouTube channel, “Aimee Nolte Music” where she now has over 226K subscribers. She shares the music that is inside of her with the world in her videos, whether through captivating duets with John Clayton and Nicki Parrott or breaking down the tiniest nuances of a McCoy Tyner solo in a way that makes even the most advanced techniques understandable to beginning musicians. Teaching topics like harmony, arranging, advanced jazz piano techniques, and even beginning piano and vocal skills comes as second nature to Aimee, and she is frequently called upon to perform and appear as a guest clinician all over the country.
