You can hear Rebecca sing and play viola on the soundtrack of Summerland, available on ITunes, for the LUMA exhibit in 2014 in Chicago. She has performed at multiple sporting events around Chicago singing the National Anthem. Winning several awards for music composition and arranging, Rebecca enjoys creating the music for music collaborations.

Rebecca is so awesome
She makes my very shy & quiet daughter very comfortable. Lots of positive feed back which helps with her self esteem. We couldn't be happier
