Coronavirus Update : Hello there, my name is Rachel- nice to meet you! As a performing musician I’ve been offering online lessons for over a decade, to accommodate my performance schedule, so I’m quite experienced with the adjustments required to teach online (Zoom, Skype, Whatsapp, Facetime, Facebook Messenger).
Out door socially distanced lessons available as well as indoor masked lessons.
121 Fisher Ave. Boston MA. 02120
30th Street, Santa Monica 90405
With over 20 years of teaching experience, I tailor piano, guitar and ukulele lessons to fit the needs of the student. I am a working musician, and have been featured as a pianist in commercials (AmEx), and on Television (VH1, PBS, Comedy Central, Twitch). I play at a variety of venues from upscale hotels to piano bars (LA): The Queen Mary, Disneyland, The Culver Hotel (NYC). I studied music at Oberlin Conservatory.
I teach a combination of classical sheet reading skills, music theory, musical improvisation, composition, and ear training. Musical genres I specialize in, include classical, jazz, pop, rock and roll, folk, ragtime, blues, new age, and showtunes.
My aim is to inspire students to be life long learners as well as brilliant musicians. Students who enjoy and are passionate about what they are learning progress faster. To that end, I shift focus to the musical genres and skillsets my students most connect with-while still offering a well rounded education.
I’ve taught students as young as age 3 to my amazing 99 yro student! I am comfortable teaching beginners to advanced and am versed in teaching special needs students, including folks with dementia, severe ADHD, severe epilepsy, Autism, and various learning disabilities.
