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.
