Overview

Music has always been a major (no pun intended) part of my life. I began learning piano at the age of 5 and continued studying classical piano into young adulthood. My favorite part about playing is being able to express myself through the music I learn and songs I write as well.

I am intuitive to the varying learning styles of different students so my teaching style is personalized to each student's individual needs.
I put a good deal of emphasis on creative music and encourage students to create their own compositions using the techniques and theory they've learned.
Most importantly, I want my students to have fun and learn to play the pieces they love!

Rachel is so wonderful with my son. She is encouraging and so good with him, and he is making great progress! I would recommend Rachel for anyone wanting to introduce their children to piano, as well as anyone looking for piano lessons.

I have never used TakeLessons.com before and didn't know what to expect. It was easy to find Rachel and narrow down exactly what I was looking for in lessons. Rachel was very warm and inviting to Janelle. Janelle took an instant likely to Rachel's teaching style. Only two lessons in and my daughter has learned so much. Rachel is nice, caring and teaches my 6 year old very well.

Rachel is the perfect teacher for Kiah (although I would imagine she would be the perfect teacher for anyone). She is professional, warm and knowledgeable. She has my daughter very motivated to do her best all week in anticipation of showing Rachel what she can do. Thanks Rachel!
