Rebecca Kleinmann Music
My students, both online and in-person participate in two recitals a year. Their growth is outstanding. Contact me if you would like a link to videos of past recitals.
My students learn to play in tune, with great technique, beautiful tone and bring joy and expression into every phrase they play. I love hearing their growth and exploring all kinds of music from Classical to Brazilian and Jazz with them.

B.A. in Jazz Studies, Flute and Spanish from Indiana University
Fully Certified as an ORFF Teacher from S.F. Orff
