Teaches: Ensembles, Voice

Soprano Rachel Querreveld was born in Houston Texas and was raised in Perth Australia, Chataqua New York and Sarasota Florida. She moved to New York City to pursue her Masters Degree at the Manhattan School of Music. Rachel has performed with the College Light Opera Company (Cape Cod), Contemporary Opera Ensemble and Baroque Aria ensemble at the Manhattan School of Music, Frost Opera Theater (Miami) and at the Miami Music Festival. Rachel has many important mentors. “My major influence in music is my voice teacher. I’ve been learning her technique since I was in high-school and I am inspired by her every day. Otherwise, I work at the Met and am constantly surrounded by my Soprano-idols. My mother is also a huge inspiration for me. As an elementary art teacher and overall creative genius, we are always sharing ideas!”

Teaching Philosophy
“Singing is about more than just making beautiful sounds. Singing lifts the soul, inspires expression, and encourages clarity of mind. Through learning to sing one trains the ear and mind to be more acute, but also allows the heart to be more open. It is the singing teacher’s goal to help students learn healthy vocal technique, gauge their individual instrument, and develop their unique artistry.”
