Hi! My name is Rachel and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2004 and have loved helping my students with preparation for auditions, competitions, college, and personal musical skill development. I went to Williamson College and earned a degree in Worship, Imagination and The Arts, in 2013. I enjoy working with students of all ages and helping them reach their personal and professional goals. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

*** Lesson Details ***
My studio runs between 30-40 students on a weekly basis. We schedule a set lesson once a week that will be 30 min, 45 min, or 1 hour that works with both schedules. Once the time spot is set students are expected to come to that time on a weekly basis. Students need the accountability of their teacher on a weekly basis to keep them progressing forward. Each student can expect progress depending on their level of commitment to lessons and at home practicing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Separate room outside the house, 88-weighted keyboard, electric and acoustic guitar, electric guitar amp, music stand, stereo, computer, and chairs in the waiting area. Parking on driveway (left side) or street parking.

*** Specialties ***
Piano, Voice and Beginner Guitar - Pop, rock, country, theatrical, classical, christian contemporary, R&B.

Rachel is my second instructor, after not feeling great about the first one I was hesitant. She is very knowledgeable and makes you feel great about any accomplishment or efforts you've made between lessons. amd of course she's very fun and positive!
