Rachel began her career at an early age with an introduction to the piano from which, some years later at the age of 8, started playing violin and flute. Throughout her early years she perfected both these instruments. Not until her enrolment at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff did Rachel fall in love with the saxophone. It did not take her long to master all three: Soprano, Alto and Tenor.
Upon receiving her B.Ed (Hons) Degree in music, she immediately joined the showband 'Images' as Musical Director. She spent the next 3 years performing with the showband on Regent Cruise Lines in the Caribbean. It was there that she fell in love with the sound of the Pan pipes.
It was, then, an open road for Rachel; she took her solo act all around the world. She began performing in hotels and corporate events in such places as Shanghai, Egypt, Morocco,
Australia, Hawaii and the Netherlands. Her experience is in all forms of Theatre from Pier Shows to Pantomime, Cabaret to Corporate: her style is second to none.
Rachel's shows are tailor made to fit any venue and age range. With a sophisticated elegance in performing some of the Classics to the hard edge of Rock and Techno these shows will always leave you wanting more!!
