Rachel began her classical musical training at the age of six using a traditional method and later switched to the Suzuki method. She began teaching privately prior to college and throughout her undergraduate studies in the Dayton-Cincinnati area. Since moving to Indianapolis, Rachel has accepted the position on piano faculty at the Indianapolis Suzuki Academy. She also maintains an in-home private studio. Rachel has completed her training in Every Child Can with Sally Gross at the Chicago Suzuki Institute, Suzuki Piano School Book 1 with Marilyn Andersen, and Suzuki Piano School Book 2 with Gail Lange at the Institut Suzuki Montréal.
Rachel believes it is very important to share the gift of music with students of all ages and all backgrounds.
