Rachel has been teaching since 2019 explains how she enjoys teaching music to beginners in particular because "I feel a responsibility to encourage & excite others to gain these tools for self-expression... to help them cultivate love, patience, and a sense of communication in their creative practice."
Rachel loves traveling to students who live in rural areas where musical opportunity can sometimes be harder to access. Rachel teaches beginning-intermediate piano and beginner ukulele.
