About Rebecca

Hello! My name is Rebecca and I am a full-time chamber singer and soloist based in Austin, TX. I sing with a variety of elite professional ensembles which are both Grammy-winning and Grammy-nominated. I offer voice lessons for all ages and experience levels. In my lessons, I emphasize tone production, accurate intonation, purposeful use (and restraint) of vibrato, vocal timbre, accurate approaches to various musical styles, solo versus ensemble singing and active listening. My singing and tutoring techniques are supported by extensive college-level vocal pedagogy training. I have sung professionally for over 14 years and have a degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana, where I received the Verna K. Townsend Award for Undergraduate Performance in Music.

I have been teaching private voice lessons out of my home studio for roughly 8 years and currently serve eleven students from age 6 to 70+. I recently assisted a student with rehabilitative voice therapy post surgery and am also preparing an emerging professional for upcoming international auditions. I very much enjoy my students and their variety of needs and levels of practice.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe Photoshop

I use Photoshop regularly to edit personal and professional images. Skills include basic to advanced editing, restoring of old photos, color correction...you name it!

I have used Microsoft Excel in numerous personal and professional capacities. As a professional tool, I used spreadsheets for budgeting, expense reporting and Profit/Loss statements. In a personal capacity, I use Excel regularly for personal budgeting and long-term financial planning. I know all the "tricks and short cuts" and am happy to pass my knowledge along to you!

Public Speaking

Hello! As a professional in the performing arts, I have spent years developing confidence in front of crowds. I have served in management positions within the retail and hospitality fields where I regularly trained staff on customer service and phone etiquette. My training as a vocal professional has also proven helpful with public speaking since I understand the importance of vocal rate, inflection and variance.

I have an excellent handle of the English language and took college-level advanced composition. I am very patient with children, am very friendly and enjoy teaching.

Also as a section leader for Conspirare and the St Louis Church choirs, it is my job to serve as an accurate vocal model for the other singers. Having over 15 years of sight-reading practice, my skills in this area have become quite good. I am happy to provide professional references to this effect. Thank you! Rebecca
