My daughter loves Rachel!
My daughter has been taking singing lessons through Skype. I wasn’t sure how this would work, however, it has been fantastic! Rachel has been a dream to work with mostly due to her supportive nature and expertise, but also because she is very flexible when we have to change a lesson time. We would definitely recommend Melody Music Studios…and Rachel!!

Concise practice advice from our found Kathi
Practice often in short sessions so that you are fresh and retain everything you’ve learned. When you’re learning a new piece, practice short segments of the piece in one practice session, and immediately repeat troubled areas. Listen to yourself when you sing or play and be your own instructor or hear the words of your instructor as you practice. Record yourself so that you can hear yourself better for your final critique. And lastly, add color, dynamics and your own feelings to make the music yours!
