Instructor Bio
Greetings! My name is Rachel Winter, and I am excited to teach summer music lessons at Christ Lutheran and Samuel School this year! I hail from Manitowoc, Wisconsin. I am in my third year out of five at Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN, where I am studying both Instrumental Music Education and Elementary Education. I have taken piano lessons since the age of six, oboe lessons since the age of ten, and method courses in many of the band and orchestral instruments. In addition, I have had four years of voice lessons and 13 years of dance lessons, including tap, jazz, and ballet. For the past five summers I’ve been a counselor at Soli Deo Gloria’s WELS Grade School Band Camp in Milwaukee, WI, and during the past two summers I was the pit orchestra director with my community theatre, directing The Drowsy Chaperone and Seussical the Musical. Through these and other opportunities, I have gained experience working with musicians of all ages. This summer I’ll be giving free music lessons to anyone who wants to grow in their musical abilities. This will include piano lessons for kindergartners through adults, instrumental and voice lessons for fourth graders and up, music appreciation and theory lessons for all ages, and, if there is enough interest, a weekly dance class for kindergartners and up. I am also running our Vacation Bible School, which will take place on July 24-28, followed by the annual Service in the Park on Sunday, July 30.

Please contact me via email with any questions you may have! I look forward to getting to know you all this summer!
