Program Manager - West
Rachel comes to Music House from Wichita, KS where she was born and raised. She brings extensive knowledge of the music retail industry having worked 5 ½ years for one of the state’s largest music stores, Senseney Music, as an instrument specialist. She began her musical career at age 8 taking guitar lessons, but turned to the trombone at age 11 because she was told she had long arms. Rachel graduated from Wichita State University with a Bachelor of Music degree in trombone performance with a business emphasis and a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in management. While attending WSU she performed with the Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Symphony Orchestra, Jazz Arts I, Shocker Sound Pep Band, and various chamber ensembles. In May 2008 she performed with the WSU Symphonic Orchestra at the International Festival of Youth Orchestras in Zaragoza, Spain, and in 2006 traveled with the Shocker Men’s Basketball team through the NCAA tournament to the Sweet Sixteen. Besides her passion for music, Rachel enjoys running, water sports at the family cabin, and following college basketball. Go Shockers!
