As a professional opera singer and recitalist, Rachel uses her first-hand experience in the business to guide her students and to teach them healthy vocal technique. Her students find her to be energetic, warm, and one of her biggest goals is to make her students feel more empowered when they leave than when they arrived. Music is a transformative art form and she hopes to enrich her student’s lives.

Learning proper singing technique is essential for the health of singers of all ages and genres. And YES! Everyone can sing! Rachel personalizes each lesson to her students' needs and provides a safe and fun atmosphere that is essential to creative learning. Musicianship, better intonation, breath control, support, tone quality, freedom of sound, and a love of music are all topics covered in voice lessons.

Rachel was so professional and warm! She helped me feel less nervous, answered my millions of questions, explained some technical things that really helped, and made everything fun The lesson passed in a heartbeat - and considering how nervous I was, that's amazing!

Rachel is beyond amazing! She is a talented teacher, a gifted and highly trained singer and one of the most patient, supportive and insightful intructors with whom I have had the joy of working. What makes Rachel special, on top of all the traits I have already detailed, is that she seems to have an intuitive understanding of my neeeds as a pupil and provides the perfect amount of encouragement, training and guidance for a beginner, as I am. I have now worked X2 per week with Rachel over the past year and my singing experience with her has been life-changing. She is also prompt, respectful and funny! Thank you, Rachel!

Rachel was great! She made me feel very comfortable and taught me so much about singing in the short time that we had. She is extremely knowledgeable about the human voice in general and teaches about proper technique that will not only boost your confidence but will keep you singing down the road. Definitely would recommend for all skill levels!

Rachel is most excellent, and quite learned in the surprisingly confusing art of singing. There are large framed pieces of paper confirming her advanced knowledge next to the piano, one of which is in all caps so it's super official. She's patient but knows the benefits of pushing what you think your singing limits are, and shows you see the whole process from a different, more helpful perspective.

Rachel has been a wonderful mentor for my 13 year old daughter. She is preparing her for her high school music experience in theater and chorus. We are so grateful to have found her. I would highly recommend her for lessons.

Rachel was incredibly kind, comfortable, and is not afraid to help you with your strengths and point out what needs to be worked on as well. After the first lesson, I've already had an excellent experience to get the ball rolling on how to really improve my singing and technique.

Rachel is amazing! She is very affirming, yet pushes you to challenge yourself. She believes in your ability and teaches techniques that are suited to your unique vocal talent and ability. She also provides helpful explanations and works with you to find ways of understanding your body that make sense to you. Very intelligent and caring as well. If I still lived in the same city as her, I would be taking lessons with her now!
