Rachel has been singing and playing piano as long as she can remember. She has also been working with children, in a variety of capacities, for nearly as long. She received her degree in music education from West Chester University of Pennsylvania and was selected as the first student intern conductor of the Kennett Symphony Children's Choir in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. Rachel has taught classroom general, vocal, and choral music to students of all ages (K-12) and in locations as varied as Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Salt Lake City, Utah. In 2013, she made the transition to private music instruction, teaching for the acclaimed Meridee Winters School of Music in Ardmore, PA.
Lessons with Rachel encourage creativity and songwriting, and she has helped dozens of students of all ages to create original songs. She nurtures her students through their individual musical journeys, as they tackle a variety of challenges-from teenage angst to stage fright. She has students located all across the country, from California to Connecticut, and loves the challenges and opportunities offered by virtual lessons.
As her glowing recommendations can attest, Rachel is a gifted and insightful teacher, with a great love and passion for helping her students grow and develop skills in a joyous, supportive environment. As a mom of two, Rachel now teaches outside Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and continues to spread her creative musical magic to a new group of students. Rachel loves flying kites and wearing colorful socks.
