Beth Nichols received her BA in Music, with an emphasis in Vocal Performance and Choral Conducting and moved to New England to get her Masters in Philosophy and Theology at Boston University. She toured Europe, Canada and the Northeastern U.S. as part of the Concert Chorale, of which she was also the president.
Beth is also certified in software design and development. She spent some 15 years in corporate information systems, ending her professional career as Director of Software Integration in 2010.
Throughout that time, Beth has remained involved in music, primarily within the church. She pioneered the youth choirs at two churches, as well as conducting the adult choir. She led the music program each summer as part of a day camp, sometimes working with only a few children, sometimes working with 100+ kids in a week.
Beth came to the Rhode Island Philharmonic Music School as she sought out early childhood music classes for her oldest daughter, now 13 years old, and has been enthusiastically involved here ever since! All three children are involved in classes, lessons and ensembles. Beth enjoyed taking Music Together classes with her youngest daughter. She began teaching early childhood music classes for Parks and Rec programs, and has recently begun teaching at the Music School. It is Beth’s delight to meet all these young, natural musicians, and engage in play with them and their families in a way that is so much fun, they don’t realize just how much they are learning!
