About
After watching Itzhak Perlman perform on Sesame Street, she began studying violin through the Suzuki Method at age 4 and a half, competing in Kiwanis competitions at the provincial level.  At 16, she was accepted into the University of Western Ontario Symphony Orchestra, and received her B.F.A in Music Performance from York University in 2007.  She has been a member of the charity fundraising initiative [url=http://www.ceolkids.com]Ceol Kids[/url], that has raised almost $100,000 for the Regent Park School of Music.  She has performed at many great Toronto establishments including the Horseshoe Tavern, the El Macambo, the Kathedral, Healy's, the Air Canada Centre, MTV Canada with Kanye West, and recorded on many projects, including the Juno nominated Big Yellow Tunes by Splash ‘n Boots. She currently plays fiddle with the Celtic band [url=https://www.oldmanflanagansghost.com/]Old Man Flanagan's Ghost[/url]. Rebecca took a break from teaching when her twin son and daughter were born in late 2017, she and her family have recently moved to her hometown of London, Ontario, where she is planning on opening a Suzuki Studio.
