Violinist and Technique Coach Rachel Frampton is passionate about helping students grow in joy and confidence through music.
She grew up in a home full of singing and instruments, and at age 6 chose the violin as her own. Living overseas for five years, she passed grades 1 through 8 in the Royal School of Music (ABRSM) by age 13. After moving to Tennessee, Rachel had her first unforgettable experience of playing with an orchestra. For four years, she played with the Chattanooga Youth Symphony (CSOYO), completing her time with the orchestra as co-concertmaster. She studied with Cadek teacher Sarah Vendsal and CSO violinist Stephen Panchaud during this time. Rachel continued studying violin and performing through college, completing music education training, a Suzuki course, and certification as a violin technique coach through Dr. Stephanie Allen.
Before opening a full-time studio, Rachel taught preschool language arts, English as a second language classes, and elementary music classes. This experience in language acquisition and classroom teaching enriched her understanding of learning styles and methods and gave her a passion for tailoring lessons to the uniqueness of each student. Rachel currently teaches with Cadek at The Bright School.
Along with individual lessons, she loves giving students the experience of playing together through duet and ensemble music. Her goal as a teacher is to inspire students to a deep love of music and provide them with all the tools needed to become thriving, lifelong learners and artists.
