She's very knowledgeable and patient. It's been many years since I've played but I feel completely comfortable and confident with her guidance.

Rachel was my first ever guitar teacher. But after about a year and a half with her I just got way to busy. To anyone that is looking for a teacher for any instrument I would defiantly recommend Rachel. She is such an amazing artist and just an amazing person.

Rachel is amazing! I’ve been playing violin my whole life and have still learned a ton just from the first few lessons. Also love that it’s online so I can take lessons without driving anywhere, very convenient.

I've only had one lesson so far, but Rachel did a great job. She is knowledgeable and very talented. I'm excited to continue on my rockin' acoustic guitar journey. I highly recommend her as she was super nice and very kind to come get me at the bottom of the hill, so I can find her studio in the future. I'm a newbie at guitar and don't know very much but she encouraged me & I can't wait to get further into it.

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.

Our daughter finds it easy and comfortable working with Rachel. She's very patient and detailed in her directions. She communicates well with us (the parents) which is helpful with feedback.

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 very knowledgeable in music theory and she's able to explain it in a way that's easy to understand. She's a very talented player and an encouraging teacher.

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.
