    Teaching Artist (Voice, Piano)

    Rebecca Buechel

    I’ve loved musical theater since I was a child, and began taking voice lessons at age 13. When I arrived at college, I fell in love with opera after playing a fairy in the chorus of Iolanthe. After college, I went on to graduate school where I had my first experience with private lessons, and I discovered my passion for teaching.
