Cello
I took cello lessons from Rachel for several years. Although I had played piano as a child, I had not attempted to play a musical instrument for over forty years. Rachel was able to explain the instrument to me, and was very patient and encouraging. Her musical knowledge is extensive and she truly enjoys teaching. I highly recommend her as a teacher of any stringed instrument.

Rachel is an excellent teacher. I started with her when I was 57 years old and have taken lessons for over 5 1/2 years. This is the first instrument I have ever played. Rachel is extremely patient and very attentive to details. She is extremely knowledgeable academically and has a lifetime of performance experience. Any student young or old would be proud to have her as their teacher.
