    "Rachel is an incredible teacher and is very passionate and commited to what she does. She is extremely talented: she plays the piano and the guitar and her voice is unique. Whenever I have a lesson with Rachel, she is able to improve my tecnique in my singing in a massive way, in only one hour. She not only tells me how to improve but also tells me why these things will help and why they will change my singing and help me improve. She does this through showing examples and making me understand how my body is working and why. I would recommend Rachel as a teacher to anyone who wants to see drastic changes in their ability level and feel more confident about themselves. Youll never find someone as great as her!" (RC, Jan 2013)

    “Rachel is very positive and stimulates students to believe in themselves, also when things don’t work out immediately. She combines excellent technical skills with a lot of experience in working with children and adolescents. My daughter really feels inspired by her and loves to go to her singing class every week.”  (S.H., mom of 11-year-old student)

    “...She has a deep interest in teaching and learning and through her dedication has inspired many children and adults to raise their own expectations and develop new practice...Her very pleasant personality, tenacity and ability to engage students ensured the success of the programme... Her own standards of playing are transferred into the expectations of those who she teaches. I would recommend Montserrat as a performer, teacher and inspirer... She is very well regarded by all who have had the privilege to work with her...”
