Richter received violin lessons from an early age, one of his teachers was Sam Tromp. Although he was drawn towards music, he followed his parents' advice and studied medicine. He interrupted these studies to study music direction with Hermann Scherchen. For several years he conducted a student orchestra. In 1941 he qualified as a physician. Nico Richter had already begun composing small pieces at secondary school. Among his compositions are 'trio' for flute, viola and guitar (1935), 'sinfonie 1' for orchestra (1936) and a chamber opera, 'amorijs' (1937).
