What can I expect? At The Artful Musician, each class is carefully designed based on age-appropriate sequential materials which will aid in the development of musical skills. Skill development should be a joy filled experience, where real progress is seen, confidence grows, and pride in personal accomplishment is felt. 


Voice as the fundamental instrument: As every person is born with a voice, singing is the main instrument used in each class. However, that is only the beginning. Foundational music skills learned through in-tune singing can then be broadened and used in any aspect of music including but not limited to instrumental and folk music. 


Small class sizes: In order to have maximum learning time with the instructor, class sizes are limited and will fill on a first-come-first-served basis. If a class is full, you may sign up for the waiting list and we will contact you when a space becomes available.




Rebecca has a deep love and enthusiasm for teaching various aspects of music to everyone who is interested. Her favorite thing about teaching musicians of any age is working with those who think they cannot sing, or understand written music and then showing them that they can do it successfully. Her core belief is that “music is for everyone”, and anyone can learn and improve their music skills with the proper instruction. Rebecca also has a strong belief that music in the home has the power to strengthen and bless families in many ways.


After working in the private and public school systems for many years, Rebecca is excited to take a lifetime of learning and growth in music education and apply them in a private music studio. She now hopes to focus on encouraging meaningful music experiences in families, and enriching and blessing homeschoolers through developmental, skill-based music education.
