I was trained at the Eastman School of Music in classical piano and voice, but have always had a love for pop music. After I was done with school, I moved back to NYC, joined an indie rock band called Ravens & Chimes, started writing and producing pop songs under the name Krystalmath (over 400,000 plays on Spotify), and began my teaching career. I usually start students in a classical style because it provides more structure, but also emphasize from early on pop and jazz-style improvisation and playing by ear.
Teaching piano, voice, and guitar lessons!

Rebecca combines the technical/foundational components of learning along side introducing diverse music types ranging from pop favorites to classical to keep my daughter engaged. She is flexible and reliable.
I highly recommend Rebecca and am grateful we found her.
We love Rebecca. She is young and creative, patient and encouraging. She lets kids have fun and teaches them to play what they like. My son would have really pushed back on the piano if it had not been for Rebecca being his teacher. He's really proud of all he has achieved. He wanted to play piano for his school talent show. Rebecca is a gem.+ Read More
I love how Rebecca makes it fun to learn to play without sacrificing attention to proper technique and theory.
Rebecca is an excellent instructor. She's very thoughtful and patient, and has great "bedside" manor. I would not describe her as drill instructor/ task master type (not what I want), and yet her methods are persuasive and effective. Plus, she clearly has a love for music and teaching. Keep going Rebecca!+ Read More
My daughter has studied voice with Rebecca for years and has made tremendous strides. Rebecca is a truly gifted teacher — serious and challenging, while always encouraging and positive. She has a great understanding of kids and knows just how hard to push. Her recitals are warm, intimate, fun events. Most highly recommended.+ Read More
