Her authenticity and unmatched knowledge of the voice are what inspired me to want to continue working with her long after college, not to mention her down to earth personality. She challenged me to find MY voice, realize the potential and artistry that I possessed, and work to break vocal habits that could cause me not to have a sustainable career. I have found that Rebecca drives and supports her students in order to get them where they want to be in their career. I speak not only from my own experience but also from observing the careers and paths of many or her students. As her student, you will be challenged, but definitely not disappointed!
