Rachel is absolutely wonderful! My daughter is 6 and has a speech delay. She's been taking lessons with Rachel for 3 months. At first she was very shy and wouldn't sing. Now she hums the exercises throughout the week in between lessons and asks when she will see Rachel. I would say one of Rachel's greatest gifts is meeting the student where they are and keeping the lesson fun & exciting!

Rachel is such a warm and encouraging teacher. My daughter who was mostly a shy girl was very comfortable with her from the first class itself. She has not only taught her many songs, but also encouraged her into love for singing, which is so valuable. My daughter can easily sing with confidence in a room full of people ! Her focus and singing has greatly improved. In fact this is our second time back with Rachel, we had to stop for some reason, now we are back again ! I would recommend Rachel to anyone !

Rachel is a great teacher. I loved how she interacted with my daughter. My daughter went from beginners to playing current songs on the piano. Rachel knew how draw out my daughters skills, challenging her, so that she can grow as a pianist. Rachel was always patient, and curious with her. I highly recommend her as an instructor.
