Overview

There are lots of reasons people take singing lessons...a dream of performing for crowds, wanting to melt faces at karaoke, not being embarrassed when singing in the shower... But the common goal is finding your voice and creating a sound you love. My studio is designed to create a space where that process is comfortable and fun! Lessons will start wherever you’re at and go at your own pace towards your specific goals.

I was trained at the School of Creative Arts in Sydney, Australia and specialize in pop, rock and R&B vocal technique. I work with a lot of beginners as well as people in bands and songwriters.

I'm from an extremely musical family and have always loved singing. (I almost pushed my parents over the edge as a kid because I would hum CONSTANTLY...) I lived in Haiti, the Dominican Republic and the US of A growing up and then moved to Sydney, Australia after high school to study music. I ran a vocal studio in San Diego for a few years and now live in NYC.

I teach online and in my NYC studio. For in person lessons click on 'Singing' subject, for online click 'Vocal Training'.

If you don't see a time available in my schedule that works for you please feel free to contact me. Things are always moving and changing!

(PS: If you read reviews and notice every one was calling me Rachel, don't be confused! That is my middle name, I now go by my first name, Luca.)

I worked with Rachel for six months to help me perfect "Waiting for a girl like you" by Foreigner. I am not a singer and have no experience doing so. I am so proud to say that I was able to sing this song at my wedding in front of almost 400 people. 100% of the credit goes to Rachel for her dedication, encouragement, and exceptional expertise. I was on key, in tune, in sync with the song, and enjoyed every moment of it. My wife was thrilled, and the rest of the audience was just stunned. THANK YOU RACHEL!!

I've had three lessons with Rachel so far. I have to say that the last time I sang a song, I was 8 years old. I didn't think I had it in me, but I am getting to the point where I actually have some confidence. The improvement I've seen is 100% because of Rachel. She is amazingly patient, and an excellent teacher. I would recommend her to anyone - beginner or pro - who wants to improve their voice. A+

Rachel definitely knows what she is doing. She is a real professional who knows how to work with what you have to make it even better. She is upbeat, uses your strengths to improve your overall ability, and is a terrific teacher. Highly recommended!

Rachel has been great at helping me improve my voice by giving specific instruction and exercises that focus on the key areas where I need to work. She really gets what I am trying to accomplish and directs our lessons to that end. She is really great!

It was very nice, very cute puppy, very cool penthouse, very cool tattoos.
And about singing part: I was pushing myself to sing without any technics and making my throat bleed every time after karaoke. Now I sing with more confidence and no blood. Definitely worth the price and time... what else... oh yeah and really good taste in furniture.

Rachel seems to know exactly the right exercises to try based on our discussions, watching and listening to my singing, to zero in on my difficulties and achieve my vocal goals. Really happy that I've made nice progress in a few lessons already.

Rachel is a gifted and intuitive teacher, one who inspires confidence and courage. Because of her, I am finding my voice. As for Rachel's voice, it is that of an angel's...with a provocative and soulful edge.
