Hello and welcome! In addition to recently completing a Master's degree in Opera Performance from the Boston Conservatory, I have also been awarded as a District Winner with the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. I have extensive experience working in masterclass and workshop environments, and love to work with young actors beginning their journey in theater and the arts! I teach in a person-first style, emphasizing taking care of the individual first and foremost to foster a healthy foundation of self-esteem. I love to work within the LGBTQ+ community and offer a safe space to explore for any and every kind of student. In my studio, we celebrate diversity and what makes you unique!

Racheal did a wonderful job helping my daughter with her stage presence.
Sara V.
My 9 yr. old daughter received singing lessons with Rachel. Rachel was SO wonderful, patient, and creative with every session with her. She was constantly coming up with different ways to keep her engaged and was always reassuring her to increase her confidence. She gave great constructive feedback on how my daughter was doing and what she can work on to improve. I give her 5 stars! Thanks so much, Rachel!
Steve
Overall, very impressed. She is direct and doesn't tell you something you want to hear. Her evaluation process is well rounded and planned. She puts together a great curriculum to know what to expect in the coming lessons. Very easy going person and makes you feel completely comfortable at the initial lessons.

Professionals often need help with their speaking voices; they are either "low talkers" or speak with loud monotones and bore their audiences.

Let me help you learn to modulate your speaking voice to advance your career or to help you with a speech problem.

Deenya
Not a good experience. First day we were set up for lessons she canceled and asked for a different time/day. When that lesson came time she was late and couldn't accommodate the lesson but never contacted to reschedule. A week later for the 2nd lesson, I purchased she sends a text a few hours before the appointment claiming that she talked to another teacher about my grandson and felt she couldn't help him. Way too inconsistent to be offering any lessons. What an awful experience. Time to move on (eye-roll).
Cecilia ..
Great teacher. Gets you started from the first lesson!
Andrew
Amber is simply the best. She has a knack for determining my level and knows how far to push me in practices and recommending homework. Her experience serves her well. She is inspiring, motivating and blunt which goes a long way because she is very directed at her constructive criticism and points that need to be improved.

"Miss Ashley is a breath of fresh Dance Education/Instruction air. She's energetic, fun and timely. She gets to the point. My daughter is thoroughly taken with her dance education approach and minute movement dissection and correction. We are coming out of Saudi, where dance is shunned and every camp Dance instructor is a volunteer parent with time on their hands, and into refresher Tap lessons with Miss Ashley. It's like night and day, at the very least. LOL! THANK YOU for your help in filling in her egregious Tap gaps while we are on Covid Evacuation to the US. We look forward to exploring other genre lessons with you in time, where possible. Any student would be in excellent hands with you."
