Rebecca has always loved to sing and music has always been a huge part of her life. When she was little, she would collect all of the freestanding lights from around the house to use as her stage lights for her first stage, the raise hearth in the living room. Her productions would also include makeup, costumes, music, and occasionally, scenery made from recycled refrigerator boxes. Needless to say, she’s loved the stage ever since. The stages Rebecca performs on have grown in size since those first performances but she always works to channel the pure love she had for music that she found on her first stage.
She believes that music should be fun and full of joy, taking on the philosophy that if a student is engaged and passionate about music, they will continue to pursue it. Her goal is to help her students find and foster their passion and dedication for music. Together, Rebecca and her students take big tasks and break them down into manageable pieces, helping each student to learn how to problem solve and manage large tasks.
When she’s not teaching she can be seen on the podium conducting orchestras and on stage singing in operas. She’s sung all over the world and has been featured in televised productions while singing in China. She loves to scuba dive, practice yoga, and explore the outdoors.
Rebecca received her Masters of Music from McGill University and her Bachelors of Music from Rice University.
