"Mrs. Rebecca is such an amazing teacher! She always has new and effective techniques and exercises for me to try out and improve that help in ways I would never imagine. I only recently started learning singing from her, which I have thoroughly enjoyed, but I have met her at all the recitals, and she always gives the warmest hugs and knows everyone's names even if they are not her students. She has such an amazing voice, which always drives me to keep practicing and really makes me look forward to the next lesson." ~ Isha Savant
