Hi! My name is Rachel, and I have been teaching lessons professionally for over 8 years now. My primary instruments are voice and piano, and I also teach music theory/ear training/musicianship skills. I earned my degree in vocal performance from James Madison University, where I taught lessons to non-music majors as well as tutored general music for the student population. I am currently getting my masters in voice and pedagogy (teaching) from the Peabody Conservatory. I would describe my teaching style as fun and relaxed, with a strong emphasis on healthy technique. I believe that all students should have a strong technical foundation, and that begins on day one. Genres I teach include classical, musical theatre, pop, and accompanying skills for pianists. I can also help with audition prep on both instruments. I look forward to meeting with you!
I teach voice, piano, and music theory lessons to students of all ages.
I served as the vocal director and rehearsal accompanist for a production of "Avenue Q" with a professional theatre company.
I tutored JMU's student athletes for a general music class that covered subjects such as music history, basic music theory, and music in modern culture.
I tutored college level music theory to music majors, covering subjects such as ear training, counterpoint, and basic theory skills.
I worked as a rehearsal pianist, personal coach, and performance pianist for the musical theatre majors at James Madison University.
