Rachel Stern, M.M.
Rachel Stern, born and raised in Waco, Texas grew up in a family where music was wholeheartedly embraced, even though neither of her parents were trained formally in music. Her mother introduced her to music at a very young age; she would sing to her while she sat in her crib. Rachel felt a calling to music and decided early in her high school years to pursue music professionally. She attended Baylor University where she studied under Dr. Robert Best and earned a Bachelor of Music in May of 2017. While studying at Baylor, Rachel taught voice to a handful of students privately while concurrently teaching at Tennyson Middle school for three years. Her pursuit of a master’s brought her to San Antonio. Rachel graduated with her Master of Music in vocal performance and pedagogy from the University of Texas San Antonio in May of 2019 under the direction of Dr. Jonathan Nix. Rachel has placed first and second at the Dallas Forth Worth chapter of the National Association of Teachers in Singing (NATS) and was a semi finalist at the Texoma chapter of NATS. In her spare time, Rachel enjoys cooking.
