Rebecca P., Violin & Viola
Rebecca spent much of her life in the metro Detroit area, obtaining a B.A. in Music from the University of Michigan, playing viola with the Grosse Pointe Symphony, and singing with the Detroit Symphony Chorale & Chorus and other professional choirs. In Wisconsin, she plays with the Sheboygan Symphony, the Waupaca Area Orchestra and the Green Bay Civic Orchestra. She is also a member of the American String Teacher's Association. Rebecca formed her own group, Rebecca & the ViolaTones, in order to perform works/genres not usually associated with strings (let alone strings and sopranos) but that are really fun!
After experiencing a shoulder injury, Rebecca realized even more fully the necessity for solid technique that allows musicians to perform without pain. This, coupled with her advanced degrees in theology and pastoral care, leads her to insist that musicians care for the whole self and helps her adapt concepts to the individual needs of the students.
