What does coaching cover?
Pitch, rhythm, style, mic technique, reading, theory, aural skills.
Musicianship sets the boundaries that allow your personal choices to have meaning. It is the difference between sloppy and innovative, accidental and intentional.
Emotional Range and Connection
Your culture, your personal history, your current mood, your perspective on the song. Your "Why".
Your range of expression will only be as great as your personal range of emotion and your comfort in expressing it. In a slow and respectful way, when needed, I will challenge you to get to know your emotional self so that the sound of your voice will truly communicate your intention, and so that your experience of music will be as deeply rewarding as possible. When that feels true to you, communicating it to an audience is natural.
"Finding your voice"
Bringing all of the elements into balance, and letting yourself as the grounded artist you've worked to become, come through.
This phrase. It gets tossed around, doesn't it? It could mean something indescribable to you. It could mean nothing at all. To me, it has meant "finding my perspective." It is a collection of all of the elements previously mentioned. It is work, and is it well worth it.
The process of our work is always a collaboration. Though I have some of the same general goals for all students, each person is so incredibly unique that your specific goals and the path to getting there will be one of a kind. Questions about that? Send me an inquiry.

Rachel is INCREDIBLE! She is a whiz at figuring out what your voice needs and how to make it grow the way you want it to. She has such a passion for making you the best singer you can be - every lesson is simply a joy!

Rachel is amazing! I've been taking lessons with her for almost a year now, and I've loved every second of it. She really listens to her students, and truly believes in your abilities as a singer.

Rachel is a wonderful voice teacher. She has the uncanny ability to zero in on vocal issues and develop exercises tailored to specific goals. As someone who is more than a bit self-conscious about singing in front of others, I can say that Rachel creates a positive and encouraging learning environment.

Rachel is AMAZING! I learn something new about my voice and abilities at every lesson. Not only does Rachel know her stuff, but else encourages and challenges me to take on songs I never thought I could. If you love to sing and want to learn proper function in a supportive environment, Rachel is the one.
