Rebekah B.

Book Now

Hello! My name is Rebekah and I am excited to teach piano to you! I am almost done with my Bachelors in music and I have had experience teaching beginner to late intermediate students.

Here are some things you can expect from my lessons:

*I believe in student-driven lessons. Each person is unique, and the best way to get musical results is to try to understand the student, rather than follow a cookie-cutter mold. My driving philosophy of music is that it is meant to be brought out of a person, not driven into them.
*I believe in a underlying basis of theory in music lessons, so that each student understands the why and how, not just the what.
*As a younger teacher and a student myself, I understand more how to speak to younger students. I know the ups and downs of the life of a full-time student, and I want to work with each schedule and each person in the way best for them.
*I will push people technically, but gently. I want high quality results, but not at the expense of the ...

I enjoy teaching and sharing my passion for music with students of all ages. Currently, I teach students from ages 4 to 66 in the summer and have taught elementary school students during the school year through a music program I started in 2017 called Virtuoso. Music has shaped me into who I am today and has given me some of the best experiences I’ve ever had. I am a classically-trained musician, so if you are looking to excel in classical music, feel free to send me a message. My goal as a teacher is to make sure that all of my students succeed and reach their full potential. Let’s get started on your musical journey!

We are so grateful that our 4-year-old son Jeremy got to learn violin with Wilson! Jeremy had never played instrument before, he’s seen Wilson performed during worship and has been aspired to be like Wilson. Wilson is such a champ at creating bonding with his little student in no time, motivating them to learn with passion and practice with perseverance. With just eight lessons, Jeremy went from nothing to being able to perform his first piece “twinkle twinkle little star”. Wilson hand made him “Jeremy’s rhythm book” to teach him notes and beats; and “Jeremy’s practice chart” which makes Jeremy motivated to practice every day and proudly put a sticker on for the day. Wilson is such a good role model to our little boy, great personality and a joy to be with, his lesson is what Jeremy most looks forward to every week! We are so sad that we can’t continue with Wilson as he will be in Atlanta for school. However, lucky violin learners in Atlanta - we highly recommend Wilson, you’ll be very lucky to learn from him!

Wilson gets me to work hard, but with creativity and a sense of humor.

Lessons will be based on what YOU want to learn! Together, we will articulate these goals and create a curriculum to achieve them. Lessons and practicing should be fun, and my experience of teaching many many different students taught me that structured and goal oriented practice is necessary in order to play the music you want to learn.
Your part is to bring up this effort and practice regularly.
My part is to help you learn HOW to practice and master the instrument with proper technique.

Ines has been a great teacher throughout college. Her emphasis on technique has greatly influenced how I approach guitar playing. Also, she taught me how important one's guitar tone is when playing a song the way the composer intended it to be played. It is very clear that I have improved as a guitar player while being her student and my guitar repertoire has expanded beyond just classical music.
Leah
Ines is an inspiring teacher for our nine-year old daughter. She is firm but flexible, patient, and a wonderful role model. Her breadth of performing and teaching experience allows her to choose repertory that is varied, fun, and challenging. Our daughter is always excited to have lessons with her.

I have been training on the saxophone for upwards of eleven years! I have been giving lessons since 2015, and I am qualified to teach beginners to early-intermediate players. I've earned top chairs in my county, district, and state, and students of mine have gone on to do the same in their own ensembles! I have also played in select honors bands, such as the Great American Marching Band in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. I am a skilled teacher, having served as a middle school teacher's assistant and summer camp music instructor. My prices are competitive because I simply want to share the joy of music with you or your student!

What to expect when you take lessons with me:
-Flexible scheduling
-(If at my location) Lessons held in soundproofed state-of-the-art music practice rooms or theatre rehearsal spaces
-A judgement-free, creative environment!

Great teacher and skillful. Great tips for today's lessons.

Thank you
Javier
Our first lesson was great. Ashley quickly got where I was and what I needed and we were off to a great start. She gave me tips on how to seat and breathe correctly, how to place my mouth and fingers on the keys to get a better sound, and we started practicing a few notes. Within a couple of days she sent me detailed notes on what we had gone through in the first lesson and gave me some exercises for practicing. Great experience all around for a beginner like me and I look forward to keep learning from her!

"Amazing vocal teacher, would reccomend to anybody looking to improve their voice! No matter what standard you are at, she probably has a thing or two!

I took lessons with Rachelle for a year and a half, and it improved my vioce immeasurably from when I started! She has so much experience, knowledge about how to be professional, and took great care, even outside of lesson times, making sure that I learned to my full potential. The only reason I didn't keep taking lessons was because I'd moved away from where she was teaching, and she had moved down to L.A. from Canada. I would really reccomend Rachelle for any level of vocalist, from begginer, to fully fledged professional, she will always have something to teach you. She has a world class voice, and she knows how you can get there too!"
