Rachel Eisenstat is a Denver-based musician splitting her time between teaching, songwriting, recording, and performing. Vocal coaching and longer-term voice lessons with Rachel are shaped by her ongoing work as a professional singer. She shares up-to-date information in vocal pedagogy and the music industry with each client.
Rachel has been gigging since she was ten years old. Long before her first voice lesson, she was a kid in a Led Zeppelin cover band. Since then, she has moved on from the tiny stage at the St. Anne’s Coffee House in her small Appalachian hometown to perform at Colorado venues such as Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom, the Fox Theatre, and Red Rocks.
Rachel has recorded two studio albums (under the moniker Raven Jane) and fronts the Janis Joplin tribute band Flower in the Sun. She has recorded session vocals and has been a guest performer with numerous local and national acts. She sings at weddings and other special events with the Diamond Empire Band and the Spotlight Band.
Rachel studies commercial contemporary music (CCM) with Kate Emerich, B.M., M.S., CCC-SLP. She previously studied classical and jazz voice under Dr. Debra Detwiler at Goshen College, where she also trained in music theory and classical guitar. Rachel teaches at Performance High in Denver, CO, and previously taught at the Loveland Academy of Music in Loveland, CO, and the T.G. School of Music in Goshen, IN.

How long do people usually take voice lessons?
What are your rates?
What's your cancellation policy?
Once you book a lesson, you are reserving time in my studio that is no longer available to another client, and that I prepare for with your individual singing goals in mind. Therefore, all bookings at Stage Native Voice Studio are non-refundable.
What does a typical band coaching session look like?
Stage Native band coaching works best for groups that have multiple singers (a lead vocalist and backup singers, or a group where various members trade verses, for example). You might be a bass player with a nice voice, and you’re adding harmonies in your band but get vocally tired after a short set. Or you’re recording a new EP, but you’re having trouble getting your voices to blend well. Maybe you want some input on more creative endeavors, like writing harmonies that are dynamic and avoid the cliché.

Do you offer virtual lessons?
Yes! In fact, ALL lessons are virtual until it is safe to resume in-person lessons again. Here are some of the reasons many of my clients actually prefer online lessons:
