Meet a couple of our instructors in the Fallbrook area!

Rachael F

Rachael began playing piano at the age of seven, and this foundation quickly led her to learn more and more instruments – first clarinet, saxophone, and vibraphone, then acoustic and electric guitar, then drum kit and violin. In 2010 she was accepted into Berklee College of Music in Boston as a piano major where she furthered her instrumental studies and developed a passion for orchestral composition and film scoring. After graduating in 2012, her work with the Chicago Symphonietta led her to Chicago where she began writing music for advertisements, including brands such as Fisher Price, Allstate, and Nintendo. In addition to ad agency work, she also composed scores for short films, one of which was recently screened at Pasadena International Film Festival and awarded Best Short Comedy at Downtown Film Festival Los Angeles. Her current passion is for drums and she enjoys seeking new styles and challenging grooves. She primarily teaches piano and enjoys working with beginners and introducing new concepts in a simple, straightforward way, and hopes to inspire a love for music in her students.
