Known for her poise and musicality, Rebecca has performed throughout the states as well as in Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, and Australia and has made appearances in such musical landmarks as Carnegie Hall, the Sydney Opera House, and Smetana Hall. She grew up immersed in music, taking piano and voice lessons from a young age as well as actively participating in local choral ensembles. Rebecca's performance history includes principal roles in both opera and musical theater productions, solo concert works, ensemble collaborations, and premieres of new vocal compositions.

While pursuing her Bachelor's Degree in music from Pepperdine University, she first began teaching beginner levels of both voice and piano, immediately recognizing the joy of helping develop a passion for music within any willing student. Rebecca completed her Master's Degree in voice performance from The Boston Conservatory and has since grown her studio to a include an exceptionally wide range of ages, styles, and musical experiences. Though her educational focus has been classical repertoire, Rebecca has a substantial amount of performance experience in musical theater and is open to exploring any genre that interests the student, including opera, musical theater, pop and jazz. She is committed to building an open, approachable relationship and offering unique lesson plans around the interests and needs of each individual student, guaranteeing engaging lessons and consistent, gratifying development.

A native of Thousand Oaks, California, Rebecca spent several years in Boston pursuing her Master's Degree and performing throughout the greater Boston area. She relocated to New York City in 2015 where she continues to grow her teaching studio and performance career. Rebecca most recently performed as L'Éternita from Cavalli's La Calisto and Helena from Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream with dell'Arte Opera Ensemble.

Rebecca's Private Studio

The beauty of the private studio is the ability to truly accommodate and tailor the individual needs and goals of each student. Over the past 5 years, my studio has grown from a few beginning voice and piano students under the guidance of my former professors to an incredibly diverse group of all ages, experience levels, and goals. With each student, I have not only encountered growth in his/her instrument but also overall confidence and success in many aspects of life, whether that be school, work, or other creative outlets.

As a teaching assistant for a large music history lecture class, I created a curriculum for a supplemental lab section ensuring full understanding of all subject matter that included listening quizzes, analysis of subjects not covered in lecture, and active class discussion. This position not only allowed for deeper exploration of music history but also better understanding of a wide range of music concepts, such as theory, performance practice, and technique.

I would give Rebecca 10 stars if I could. My daughter has been taking piano lessons with her for more than a year and she absolutely loves her! Rebecca is kind, encouraging, patient and a wonderful teacher. I cannot recommend her enough.

The first session was great. Rebecca was warm, kind and natural. She wanted to form a solid foundation by asking my daughter about her interest, what she wanted to learn, the artist she likes and let her sing to have an understanding of her vocal skills. We are excited to work with Rebecca as my daughter loved her. Totally recommend her to both kids and adults.

This rank beginner is really excited about learning to sing. In the very first lesson Rebecca gave me a way of visualizing that already improved the sound of my voice.
