Hello and thanks for checking out my, 'I love me' paragraph ; ). But really this is about YOU. It's about how my teaching and life experiences may help you along your personal musical journey. I've learned a great deal in my 20 years of teaching; - patience - persistence - keep it fun - change it up It's my belief that music fundamentals are critical and we will create a solid musical foundation by learning the language, understanding the critical issues of timing, rhythm, and reading. I enjoy working with all ages but specialize in children and adults that act like children! Stay a child! Learn something new. What are you waiting for?!

Students describe me as a patient and encouraging teacher, and my teaching style as effective, fun, and relaxed! Call TakeLessons today, and we will schedule your first lesson!
Hi, there! My name is Rachel, and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2002, and have loved helping my students learn to read and play, discover their own love of music, and conquer their fears of performing (so much "proud mama bear" happening!). In 2003, I earned my violin performance degree at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where I also studied piano and vocal pedagogy. I'm an encouraging and fun person to work with (if I may say so myself!), and my teaching style is fun, positive, and relaxed. I have worked with many students, including some with learning disabilities, physical limitations, PTSD, and just plain ol' stage fright! I work with you to set your own goals, and I look forward to helping you reach them... It's what I love about what I do.
Have played in orchestras in Paraguay, Brasil, Argentina and USA. I started taking lessons at age 8, and finally had the opportunity to teach starting in 2013 at a music school in Paraguay. I like to incorporate pieces chosen by the student in the curriculum because it provides more motivation and excitement to learn! As part of learning to play the violin, it is essential to learn to sing the notes as well, so my approach includes a little bit of sight-reading and ear training as well.
When I was about to turn 8, I asked my parents for a violin as a birthday present! I have loved playing ever since. My mom is a piano teacher, so I learned to play the piano as well. I have played in orchestras, chamber strings, and quartets in Paraguay, Brasil, Guatemala, and the United States. The beauty of music is that it crosses all borders! I was born and raised in Paraguay but I came to the USA to go to college. Currently, I am working on a doctorate in Clinical Psychology. I'm optimistic, responsible, and want to help others reach their full potential.
Experienced strings teacher of 3 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I have ten years' experience as a violinist in solo, chamber, and orchestral settings. I structure my lessons so students learn a variety of music styles according to their personal interests, while also building a strong foundation of technique, music-reading, and ear-training skills. I specialize in classical repertoire (solo and ensemble), and typically work from the Suzuki method books. I look forward to exploring this beautiful instrument with you!
I am a Hampton Roads native holding a Bachelor of Music Education degree from Lee University (Cleveland, TN). I am licensed to teach instrumental and vocal music to grades K-12 and have several years' experience privately teaching students ages 5 to adult. I began my musical journey with my first piano lessons at age five. Since then, I have studied the instrument in many different styles, including classical, jazz, modern, and worship. My primary instrument is the violin, which I have been playing classically for ten years, in solo, chamber, and orchestral settings. This spring, I taught orchestral strings in a public school setting, working with grades 6-12 on violin, viola, cello, and upright bass. Though I primarily consider myself an instrumentalist, I also have ten years' ...
