Beth Guertin is a Western Mass native and UMASS Amherst alumna where she received her Bachelor’s degree in Music Education. Since then she has been teaching Band and General Music for over 20 years at the Gateway Regional Middle and High. She received her master’s degree from UCONN. Beth was lucky enough to participate in Drum and Bugle Corps as a young adult, and after she aged out from the activity, began teaching with a local group and met her future husband. They have both settled down in Western Mass and have three energetic kids! As a family, they enjoy hikes, bike riding, baking, cooking, building Legos, listening to and making music, as well as art walks in the local orchard! Beth enjoys teaching music performing with The Valley Winds. She has been playing and performing with the group since it’s inception and enjoys gathering with the rest of the group on Sundays to work and make music together.
