Theater for Young Audiences is excited to introduce Rachel Smith. Rachel has been a Music Director at school for two years, and this is her first time being a Music Director for TYA
Even though she likes being a Music Director for The Mad Adventures of Mr. Toad! it can sometimes be very stressful teaching notes and rhythms.
She wants others to feel the joy she gets from music. Rachel loves singing and is involved in it at school.
Her piano skills help her students to do well. She says her biggest challenge is being assertive enough to tell people what to do.
In order to be a Music Director, Rachel says, “You have to know what you’re doing, like teaching the music and style of the music.”
She thinks the production is great and the cast and crew will put on a good show. TYA is lucky to have Rachel as a part of our team. Look forward to working with her on future productions.
