Nicole LaRoche (Lakota) is the daughter of Paul LaRoche and has performed with Brule’ since 1995
Nicole began playing the flute when she was 10yrs old. As most kids do in the public school music program. Taking to the instrument quickly, she began to study under well known instructor in the Minneapolis area, Judy Ranheim in her second year. Nicole was never one to follow the lines of rules. Adventure was in her heart. Although she enjoyed the flute, and being part of the Greater Twin Cities Youth Symphonies(GTCYS), it was put aside early high school years for adventure. What she didn’t know was that this would lead her back to her flute, and it would become her voice.
