Teaching since:

Hello, my name is Rebecca and I am so excited that you have decided to check out my teacher profile.

I want to use all of my knowledge to help guide every student to their personal success. I am a music educator and clarinetist. I'm working on a master's degree in clarinet. I work with woodwind players from beginning to advanced. If you're looking to start taking clarinet lessons to quickly improve, I am knowledgeable in the pedagogy. if you're looking for an extra boost before college auditions, I can help from not only personal experience of the audition process but extensive knowledge in the required repertoire for many universities. If you're looking for help in learning and long range goals for flute, oboe, or clarinet, I am more than happy to work with you at every step to achieve your goals!

As a fully certified public school teacher, I have the training and knowledge to work with students with special needs. Please don't hesitate to contact me to see what I can do for you.

Rebecca was great. She didn't waste a lot of time, she got right down to business teaching... which I really appreciated. We were looking for help for something very specific and she was able to really help my son with exactly what he wanted help with. She was encouraging and kind.
She was very flexible with her time and working with us. And she was very knowledgeable about how to help him. Overall it was a great experience!
