· Guitar · In studio Rachel is very professional as a music instructor. There's no doubt about her wealth of knowledge and experience. She is also very patient and explain things clearly, and she offers effective methods to improve my guitar technique. I've been learning guitar with Rachel for about one and a half month, and I've been steadily making progress. Besides, Rachel is a wonderful person to work with. Her passion and positive energy make learning a joyful experience. I trust her, and I feel lucky to have her as a teacher.
