Rachel is a wonderful professional! My daughters take piano and clarinet lessons with her. She is great with kids, very patient and knowledgeable about music . We have a busy schedule and most of the teachers don't understand that. She is flexible and work with us around our schedule !!!Dec 18, 2017
My son began piano lessons with Rachel nearly two years ago and we have been very happy working with her. He has progressed steadily and is continually challenged to improve. She selects musical pieces that fit his personal interests as well as more traditional pieces with increasing complexity. We hope to continue learning with her for many more years to come.Dec 22, 2017
My 9 yr-old daughter has been taking piano lessons with Rachel for the past 1.5 years. Rachel is always punctual and easy to communicate with. Rachel's music collection has helped my daughter advance quite a bit in her playing--with music ranging from the Harry Potter and Star Wars themes to simple pieces by Bach and Tchaikovsky. We have enjoyed working with Rachel and recommend her!Dec 20, 2017

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?For half hour lessons I charge $45 per lesson, for 45 minute lessons I charge $70 per lesson, and for hour lessons I charge $95 per lesson. I like to start with a no obligation introductory lesson where I teach a lesson and then go over my policies and packages. Then we both decide if we would like to continue with lesson.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I start by emailing with them or talking to them on the phone to discuss what they want to learn on their instrument, what their level and experience is, what instruments they have or will purchase, what length of lesson they want, where they live, and what day and time of the week will work for both of us. During the introductory lesson I explain my policies and have the student fill out a contract agreement form with their contact information. The next week or the say and time we agreed on we start lessons.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I started playing the flute when I was 10 years old. I started playing the piano when I was 8 years old for two years and then again in college for two years, but I played it throughout the years I was playing the flute as well. I started playing the clarinet in college. In addition to teaching private lessons on these instruments for seven years, I also taught piano group classes for a year and a half. I also taught elementary general music, band, and choir for 9 years at multiple elementary schools. I have a Bachelors of Music in Music Education and my Colorado Music K-12 Professional Teaching License. When I taught elementary band, I taught flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, trumpet, and trombone.
