ALL ABOUT ME

Music and the Performing Arts have always been my greatest passions, but being able to teach them is an even greater gift. I love what I do, and it makes me so happy to be able to share my passions with others. Back in my school days, I wanted nothing more than to be a part of this world of performing arts and music. During my hiatus from the industry, I lived in another country,  got married to my best friend, and became a mom to one amazing kiddo! However, through those years away, I couldn't help but miss this world. Shortly after moving to DMV area, in 2017 I re-entered the world of Performing arts by teaching piano lessons from my home. Since then, my business has grown into something I had only dreamed possible. Being able to provide privatized education in the field of Performing arts had been a dream come true. It has been my privilege to see so many students discover their natural skills and abilities, and reach results they never dreamed were possible!

"Rachel is an incredibly gifted piano teacher. We came to her with no prior music experience, and watching my daughter grow through lessons was amazing! If she has openings, take them! She’s also super affordable with the military."
