Pianist Rachel Jackson is currently pursuing a masters degree in music performance at Butler University. She was most recently awarded the collaborative piano assistantship and teaches privately in the Indianapolis area. She has performed as a soloist in numerous venues including the Indiana Convention Center, Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Marysville, Ohio, and the Troy Hayner Cultural Center.
Rachel has played several events for us and she is spectacular. Not only is she a very talented pianist and vocalist, she is a naturally pleasant person as well. As most of us know, talented musicians can be a little prickly, but not Rachel.
Additionally, when we've had to make last minute program changes, Rachel has adjusted flawlessly. While I don't like putting talent in that spot, it happens sometimes and Rachel seems to have no trouble playing an alternative piece with little notice.
