Stay tuned for Nicole Frederick's return from Down Under!
Nicole has been teaching privately since 2008. After receiving her Bachelor's in Music Education at the Crane School of Music in 2014, Nicole taught Elementary Music in Boston for two years. She recently completed her Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, specializing in Music Therapy, at Lesley University.
Nicole grew up in a musical home. Her parents encouraged her pursuit of music, starting her on violin when she was 4. She continued her studies of violin through school and in a private orchestra, which challenged her to express music in new ways. This experience led her to pursue music professionally.
While studying at the Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam, Nicole completed a specialization in Special Education, where she was introduced to Music Therapy. Her experience teaching in Boston developed her interest in meeting alternative goals using music, encouraging her to pursue her Masters in Music Therapy.
Nicole enjoys exploring music with all ages, in a variety of settings. She has performed with several pit orchestras and professional orchestras, but particularly enjoys playing in chamber groups. She also enjoys outdoor activities, reading, being creative in the kitchen, and yoga.
