Natalie Côté is a recent graduate of the University of Lethbridge, where she completed her Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Education degrees. She studied classical piano, choral singing, conducting, and music education under various mentors.
Since beginning her career, Natalie has enjoyed teaching at RDCRS Home Education, Maryview School, and teaches private piano lessons. These experiences have included directing a children's musical, youth choir, multi-level band program, and a general elementary position from pre-kindergarten to grade 4. She looks forward to fostering a love of music and singing in young people through building relationships and encouraging them to share their talents and passions.
Natalie was brought up in Red Deer and has sung in various choirs in the area since 2004, and this fall started her fourth year in our very own ihana Youth Choir. Natalie is excited for her new position as the director of Brioso Children's Choir. She is grateful for the opportunity to participate in and contribute to the Choirs Red Deer choral community.
