I have been playing Brass instruments, specializing in Trombone, since 2004. I love teaching music, and welcome all ages to come out and try and toot their horn. I'll build a personalized lesson plan based on the students wants, and needs, and I'll do my absolute best to get you where ever you want to go musically.
About Rachel W.

I have been playing the piano and the trombone since childhood. Growing up in a musical family, music has always played a big part in my life. I was active in school bands in addition to taking private lessons throughout grade school. In high school I was a member of Tri-M (a musical honor society), qualified for district band through audition, and was ranked in the top 10% of trombone players in the state of Virginia. Throughout my education I developed a working knowledge of brass instruments, music theory, a variety of playing styles, and much more. After high school, I pursued and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology at Virginia Commonwealth University, while continuing my musical career, playing in bands offered by the school as well as in the Richmond area. I am currently active with the ACCA Temple Shiners in their German band, The Sauerkrauts, 100% of whose proceeds go to benefit children in Shriner-owned hospitals. ​ I have been giving private lessons since 2006, and have a deep passion for musical education. I feel learning to play an instrument enriches life in a way few other things can.
