About Rebecca T.

Hello, my name is Rebecca and I am so excited that you have decided to check out my teacher profile. I am a proud University of Florida graduate, where I earned a master's degree in clarinet. I play clarinet in local orchestras and teach elementary music full-time.

I use all of my knowledge to help guide every student to their personal success. My past students have been beginners who quickly became leaders in their band. I have had students accepted into All-County and All-State bands, as well as performing arts high schools with selective auditions. If you're looking for a teacher to work with your student to grow as a musician and clarinetist, you've come to the right place!

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 we can do.

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!
