Welcome to Music With ReBecca!
I am a professional actress and have worked in New York, LA and Toronto with credits in Off-Broadway shows. Now having kids of my own, I believe that it is important to nurture one's love of music while helping them feel good about themselves while doing it!
I know how important it is to find quality extra-curricular activities and how difficult it can be planning them! My philosophy is that my students feel safe and have fun while they're learning. I offer singing, acting and piano lessons, either in my studio or in your home, both private and group.
I offer a variety of other music and drama classes including Music Circles for tots and drama presentations where we create plays based on our imaginations or already existing stories!
I also help prepare children and adults for auditions, either for a role or for a performing arts school. All of this, along with teaching the basics of musical theory - all while boosting my students' self-esteem and confidence.
I have taught Pre to Postnatal Music Groups at the Miles Nadal JCC along with Musical Theatre for Pre-Teens and Teens at Front and Centre Dance, Leo Baeck and Groove School of Dance, and have also taught Pre School Drama at Holy Blossom.
Through the Toronto District School Board, I have taught private voice lessons and have helped direct the musicals at Allenby Public School through ZodiActors.
Whether you are a beginner or a pro, the priority in my teaching is ensuring there is a feeling of safety and trust and that you feel you can open up and have fun while learning!
Please reach out with any questions or to set up a lesson!
"After my first lesson with ReBecca, I felt that my singing had already improved so much. ReBecca helped me get to the bottom of some bad singing habits that I had been developing over the years, and taught me how to take proper care of my voice. Whenever I have a big audition coming up and I am nervous, I know ReBecca will help get me to where I need to be so that I feel confident and prepared. She is also so kind...a truly special person and lessons with her are more than just a singing lesson, they make my whole day better!"
"I was most impressed upon meeting her. She came into the school and shared with several classes, her excitement, creativity and passion for children. We have found ReBecca to not only be reliable and responsible, but highly attuned to the children and sensitive to their needs. Her rapport with them is warm, accepting and gentle. Her classes are filled with enthusiasm, spirit and creativity. The children run down the hall each week to greet her. ReBecca is extremely aware of the need for spontaneity and flexibility around child-centered programming."
- Pamela Cappe Hamovitch, Director, Early Childhood Centre at Holy Blossom Temple
"My son Jake just turned 9 and has been taking piano with ReBecca for 2 years.
He says what he finds the most fun about ReBecca is that she'll encourage him to find songs that he loves and so he is excited about learning them. It's been wonderful watching him improve over the years and he's developed his passion for music since taking lessons with ReBecca. Jake is excited to show ReBecca what he learns every week and I think this encourages him to practice more. I am very happy with his progress! We love you ReBecca!
