My teaching approach involves meeting my students where they are and seeking to find the best way to build confidence with their innate skill set. I am extremely thorough and patient and aim to confidently build solid musicianship skills.
I am a private piano teacher with a B.A. in Piano Performance and Pedagogy with 25 years of private teaching experience. All ages and skill levels. I also taught K-12th general music and choir for 14 years. Diverse teaching experience.
Rebecca is a talented and caring piano teacher! She has taught my son for the past year. She is always encouraging and makes his lessons interesting. Highly recommend!
Having taken piano in my early life but not continuing into adulthood, I have regretted for many years that I could no longer play. I am 59 now and have been enjoying lessons with Rebecca for just over a year. With a lot of fun and laughter, she has taught me more than I imagined would be possible in so short a time. She makes music theory make sense, showing how woven together the whole science is, and helping me make theory discoveries of my own -- which is the way I learn best. She also teaches me how to read a musical piece logically, identifying patterns, the way notes work together as they move through measures, and how each song utilizes theory to make its music. Her style is relaxed yet professional, serious yet personal. She has invested herself in getting to know me and how I learn. She has an uncanny way of helping me to relax when I get flustered and instills confidence in me that opens me up to learning. Then when I do something well or learn and employ a new technique, she is lavish with her excitement and praise. I am grateful that I have the privilege and joy of learning from Rebecca. I can't imagine any other teacher.
Rebecca has been my daughter's piano teacher for over 5 years. The enthusiasm Rebecca has is catchy. My daughter has gone from knowing nothing about the piano to playing in church and getting Superiors at Federation. Thank you for creating such a beautiful piano player.
Rebecca has taught my son piano for 2 years and he has loved it. She is encouraging and motivating in a way that makes him want to practice! Rebecca's teaching style and knowledge have helped my son not only advance his skills but he is playing the type of music he enjoys. I would recommend her for students of all levels.
My daughter took piano and voice lessons from Rebecca for 2.5 years. Sophia really enjoyed her lessons and was sad to see her move. Rebecca had a way of really getting her out of her comfort zone and challenging her. Sophia's piano playing got significantly better during the time she was with her. I would highly recommend Rebecca to anyone wanting to take piano or voice.
Rebecca has been a wonderful piano teacher for our daughter during the last year. Rebecca has contagious energy that motivates the students to listen and learn. Having many virtual lessons throughout the summer allowed me to observe and listen to the encouraging and thoughtful way she teachers her students. I often heard her explaining to my daughter the complexity of the notes she was reading or the song she was playing. She is quick to offer praise after a job well done and has encouraged our daughter's love of music. During a recent virtual recital, Rebecca took the time to share a story about each of her students, which really showed the level of attention she gives to each of her students. Rebecca is a fantastic teacher! - Elizabeth Worrell
