Ms. Rachel’s Music Classes have been providing music education in lower income Pre-schools and High Schools in the Greater Philadelphia area since September of 2015. Her articulate style of encouraging children to express themselves through dance, music, and language have inspired many schools in the city to prioritize music in their curriculum where music education is no longer a requirement. She has worked with Music Training Center, The Penn’s Children Center, Girls Rock Philly, CCP (Community College of Philadelphia) Kindercare, Care-A-Lot Learning Center, Miss Marty’s Pre-School, Olney High School, Kensington CAPA, and YouthBuild.
In addition to teaching music, Ms. Rachel is an avid tap dancer and is also an accomplished musician performing solo and with her band Rachel Andie and the V Element at venues around the city and at the 2018 SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas. She also writes catchy and fun original children’s songs.
