Rebecca joined the Mini Maestros family in late 2015 as the owner and teacher of the Beaconsfield/Officer/Pakenham franchise and will commence teaching classes in March 2016.
Rebecca’s passion for the arts was encouraged from an early age with constant exposure to music and singing around the house and in the car. At the age of 8 she commenced her dance training which spanned 10 years where she studied classical ballet, jazz, tap and musical theatre. During these years Rebecca also studied piano before deciding to solely focusing on dance. From here Rebecca went on to complete a Bachelor of Applied Science (Hons) Health Promotion degree at Deakin University majoring in Human Movement. Rebecca returned to dance this time as teacher at several dance schools in the South East of Melbourne. It was here that Rebecca discovered her passion and love for teaching and consequent desire to start a family of her own.
Rebecca was first introduced to Mini Maestros in 2012 when she attended classes with her eldest daughter, then 2 years old. Her son also commenced classes at age 2 after accompanying his sister to class as a baby. Loving the program for its sequential nature, diverse program and the fun had in each class, Rebecca could see the benefits for all children enrolled in the program, ranging from development in self-expression, language and literacy skills, social skills and gross and fine motor skills.
Rebecca is grateful for the opportunity to combine her passions of music, dance and educating children as a Mini Maestros teacher and is excited to be able to make a difference in young children’s lives through music education, instilling a love of music that will last a life time and also enhancing their academic journey along the way!
Rebecca’s daughter, who has just started school, recently came home with a song she had composed and asked her mum for help in hearing what her song sounded like. When Rebecca asked her daughter how she came up with the song, she answered, “Because I learnt it at Mini Maestros!”
