The best compliment to receive is that you have done a job well!
I took the flute in Jr. High and High School. Our teacher was more into sax, clarinets and jazz instruments and essentially the instrument was given to us and we did our best to learn from the music books. Thanks to the internet, I recently did a search to find a "local" flute teacher. While our time was too short, Rebecca gave excellent instruction. She encourages the student to keep on trying... to never give up and she gives tips to the student to help them progress -- and to see improvement as they practice. It is hard to find an instructor who is as approachable as Rebecca. I felt immediately at home in her presence... even though I know she is a very accomplished artist. I wish her well in her new endeavours...
Our daughter Katie began vocal lessons with Rebecca in 2011. Since then Katie has auditioned and been cast in several professional musical productions and has won countless singing competitions. Stage directors are now contacting us expressing interest in her.
Rebecca's highly creative approach to voice training has been instrumental in our daughter's success. Rebecca has laid the foundation for a promising future. Recently, Rebecca suggested an audition song and it landed Katie a great role.
