About Rachel C.

Teaching others music education is my passion! Each lesson is tailored to the individual student based on his/her age, skill level, and musical interests. Students usually begin with a common course book such as Alfred or Faber series including studies in the following areas: Repertoire, Technic, Scales, Chords, Arpeggios, Theory, & Duets. I took private lessons from age 5 through 18 and four years of college lessons from Dr. Suzanne Torkelson at Wartburg College, Waverly, Iowa. I studied college level courses in piano literature, piano theory, and piano pedagogy and have over 10 years of teaching experience. I’d love to connect and learn more about the goals your child has for private lessons and see if we would be a good fit!

Rachel was such a pleasure to work with. Very knowledgeable and patient. Definitely a great teacher and would recommend her to everyone. It was very easy to work with her. Our girls loved learning from her and always looked forward to class days with her.

Rachel is an amazing, encouraging, and patient piano teacher. As an adult picking up piano for the first time it was a bit intimidating to me, but she makes it fun and allows you to go at your own pace. You can definitely tell she has a passion for music and it comes across in the way in which she teaches.
