Rachel has been studying music for 20 years and received her Bachelor Of Science in Music Education at Hofstra University.
Prior to her degree, she performed in many private and collegiate ensembles as a vocalist, such as Hofstra University Chorale, Hofstra University Chamber Choir, and Hofstra University’s all female a cappella group: Makin’ Treble. She held the position of Music Director for Makin’ Treble for three years and wrote several arrangements for the group to perform.
Rachel has sung in over 20 different style choirs and has played in 10 orchestras.
Currently, she performs with a jazz combo in the Hamptons, acts in musical theatre productions, is in an upcoming folk band based in Brooklyn, competes in popular vocal competitions, and writes, records and performs her own original music. (KarmaRé : Unispan Records)
The various experiences in performance ensembles have shaped her personally, and have also helped mold what her teaching styles have become. Rachel is excited and eager to teach any age. She believes that no matter who you are, music is a personal experience; everyone can connect with music on their own level. As a teacher/ coach, Rachel focuses on technical skills, literacy skills and an emotional connection to the music.
