Rachel Bearinger is an educator, guitarist, trumpeter, songwriter, and performer. Rachel graduated cum laude from the University of Northern Iowa with a Bachelor's of Music in instrumental music education, and is an inductee of Pi Kappa Lambda, the national music education honor society. Currently, she teaches in-person lessons in the Twin Cities and coaches rockers of all ages at She Rock She Rock summer camps.

Rachel has performed with various groups across the Midwest, as well as in New York City, London, and southern Brazil. As a trumpet player, she has played everything from Bach to Miles Davis to Snarky Puppy. As a guitarist, her work is rooted in the folk tradition, but expands into the worlds of jazz, classic rock, punk, and pop. She is also an active singer-songwriter. Her latest release, Spirals, is a folk rock album with twists of baroque pop and jazz.

Lessons with Rachel are productive and thorough. Students can expect to receive instruction with clarity, sequence, and patience, but not without a bit of levity (Rachel is kind of a goofball). Rachel has been teaching music lessons since she was a student in high school, and has honed her skills as an online teacher over the past three years.

Rachel's teaching philosophy is rooted in a strong emphasis on music fundamentals, while always making room for each students' personal vision for themselves. She is particularly fond of helping trumpet players find their best sound via a relaxed, thoughtful approach to the instrument. Guitarists can expect combination of learning their favorite songs mixed with relevant guitar technique and music theory.

Rachel was tremendous! Her warmth and sense of humor put my daughter at ease during her first lesson. And she used the time so effectively--my daughter played more music in her 30-minute lesson than any other one she's had (with prior teachers). The experience has her excited to learn!

Great first lesson. My daughter thought instructor was friendly, patient and nice. When she finished her lesson she had a big smile on her face which says it all. Will do again.

Rachel, worked well with this 13.5 year old beginner. After the meeting he told me he liked her and that she taught him things he never knew. I asked him if the class went fast and he said yes. He was very glad to have the lesson and his anxieties have disappeared. He is looking forward to his next lesson.

Rachel was great. She really engaged my 11 year old son, and in 30 minutes they covered a lot of ground. She made it fun for him.
