More about the artist:
Rachel holds a Doctorate of Education in Music Education and is an Associate Professor of Music Education at Duquesne University. She strongly believes that music of all types should be included in schools so that children can have an outlet for expression that is relevant to the music in their lives outside of school. In her own childhood experiences, there was a disconnect between the formal classical training she received and the rich country music she sang on her own and loved the most. Through her work as both a singer songwriter and teacher educator, she hopes to inspire others to unapologetically embrace the music they love and not be afraid to study it in and out of school.
