Take lessons with a Broadway veteran! I've been teaching private voice and acting coaching for over 7 years and LOVE seeing my students improve! I am a working singer/actor, and writer/musician in NYC, but I love teaching so much that I do it even while I'm working on projects! A little bit about me: I graduated from University of Michigan's musical theatre program (one of the top musical theatre programs in the world!) and went straight into playing Ariel in THE LITTLE MERMAID at Chicago Shakespeare theatre, and then directly on to playing the lead in PHANTOM OF THE OPERA on Broadway for several years! I also recently returned from China, where I played Scarlett O'Hara in the musical version of GONE WITH THE WIND! I've trained in all kinds of different techniques and currently have all different types of students and voices in my studio! I teach all levels and ages, from beginners to professionals, and a wide variety of different of styles (Broadway, opera, pop, singer-songwriter, and many more). Together, we'll find the right techniques for your voice, and the concepts that click for you and make your voice soar! Now, any voice teacher worth their salt will be able to work on your technique with you, BUT in MY studio, we will go farther than that! Not only will your technique improve rapidly, but we will work on telling the story, and performing the song. Two major components that often get forgotten! And most importantly, we'll have fun while doing it! Whether you're looking to push your audition technique over the top and BOOK that role, or NAIL that college audition, or if you're just looking to have some fun while singing, together we can make it happen!

Rachel is a fantastic teacher!
Rachel is a talented actress and singer. She is also a great teacher! I really enjoy our lessons and i am a bit shy when it comes to singing, but she really helps make you feel comfortable. She has many different tools in her kit to help bring your voice out and understand how to use your body. I appreciate her candid approach and that she doesn't butter me up, she gives great constructive feedback that you can work with. Not only the technical aspects, but the artistry of the craft as well. I definitely feel like i've gained a deeper understanding of how to sing properly and am more confident as a result. Highly recommend her, you wont be disappointed.
Rachel is such a great teacher. She explained everything so clearly and vividly. I have zero background or knowledge in singing but I feel I learned a lot just in the first class! And she is so kind and patient. It's such a good experience to work with her!
