Beth McClelland is a mother, grandmother and member of the SRVUMC who began teaching the Children’s Choirs in August 2016. She works with children in both Cherub (ages 3.9-5) and Archangel (ages 6-10) Choirs and is also the music teacher for the SRVUMC Preschool. She started piano at age 6 and played flute, piccolo and oboe into her college years. Beth’s first career was 18 years in pediatric nurse and then she worked for 22 years teaching elementary education in the San Ramon Valley Unified District. Whether parenting, nursing or teaching music has always flowed through her life. Teaching music is a perfect third career as it combines two of the things she is most passionate about; music and working with children.
