Nicole Singer is a teacher, organizer, singer, dancer, and artist living in Easthampton, Massachusetts. She is delighted to return to Pinewoods to direct Harmony of Song and Dance Week! Nicole is a co-founder and organizer of Youth Traditional Song Weekend, co-author of CDSS’s Folk Sing Starter Kit (with Julia Friend), and former chairwoman of folk music and song programming for NEFFA. As an organizer, Nicole loves geeking out about fostering intergenerational community and making sessions welcoming and enjoyable for all, with a particular focus on anti-racism and inclusion. She has also taught and performed at many music camps and festivals on the east and west coasts. As a singer, she specializes in sea music and work songs, but she also sings shape note songs, kids’ songs, rounds, camp songs, pub songs – anything that gets people singing together! When she’s not singing, talking about singing, or running an event, Nicole is an elementary and middle school art teacher.
