Overview

From the age of 4, RaShelle composed music and played piano by ear, dreaming of the day when she would be able to hear her pieces played by full string orchestras and symphony orchestras. In high school, she began studying classical piano performance with Mrs. Patricia Randolph, graduate of Eastman School of Music. During her studies with Mrs. Randolph, she received “rating one” in 2003 and 2004 for her piano performances at the Nebraska Music Guild Competition. Later in college while studying jazz and tango in Buenos Aires, Argentina, RaShelle was inspired to pursue her passion for both electronic and acoustic composition. Upon returning to the United States, she studied electronic composition with Dr. Charles Nichols at the University of Montana, and acoustic composition with Dr. Eric Funk at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana.

Currently RaShelle is teaching songwriting with the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, TN. She also runs the Writer's Workshop for The Martha O'Bryan Center's College Zone Program at Maplewood High School.

Great with kids

My 4 year old daughter expressed an interest in playing the piano but neither my wife or I know how to play. I'm very pleased we found RaShelle. She's patient, positive and enthusiastic. Our daughter looks forward to each lesson, which is more than I could have hoped for. And, she's learning a lot.

What impresses me most is that RaShelle is also helping her learn to sing in key while she plays. My daughter is only 4 and already knows how to do things that I can't. That's pretty exciting.

Enthusiastic Teacher!

RaShelle has a God-given musical talent and it shows in her enthusiasm for music - not only in piano, but guitar and singing, as well.

RaShelle's love for music~ is evident in the way that she teaches and inspires you as a student to want to excel to the same level of excellence.

I strongly recommend this young woman as a teacher.
