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. She is a member of the American String Teacher’s Association, and plays with the Weidner Philharmonic, the Sheboygan Symphony, the Waupaca Area Orchestra, the Green Bay Civic Symphony – and the KlezKats klezmer band.
Rebecca tries to help her students see the patterns in and naturalness of music. To that end, she draws from her expertise in voice, strings, and piano, in combination with traditions and pedagogical methods, to create a unique, customized experience for each student. This blend is always driven by the student's individual goals and interests.

Pamela T., Piano - Offering In-Person and Virtual Instruction
Pamela Terry has over 30 years of teaching experience. In her curriculum, she uses many different series, and students are encouraged to bring in any music they are interested in playing, along with their lesson books. She holds group lessons twice a year, where they perform in front of other students at their own level. They learn recital etiquette, discuss the good qualities of each performance, and experience playing in front of others without intimidation of a large group. She has maintained a full schedule of about 30 students for the majority of her teaching years and many of them will tell you their favorite part of lessons are the prizes! She believes learning to play the piano should be educational and fun and uses games where they accumulate points during the lessons to earn prizes and keep her students motivated. Her enthusiasm and love of teaching is what keeps her students excited about playing.
