Writer

Rebecca's writing trajectory began in the academic circuit by writing program notes for orchestra concerts while pursuing her master's degree. Ever since, Rebecca has embraced the medium as an active participant in her work in music and periodically contributes articles to music education-based establishments, such as TakeLessons, Musika, and Modern Singer. Her writing style is known for its levity and accessibility, like sitting down for a chat with a good friend.

 

In 2018, fueled by her passion for both classical music and wine (which happen to be perfect companions), she created her own writing space - Will Sing for Wine. The blog offers resources and inspiration for the music lover and creative thinker, and its primary aim is to help bridge the gap between classical music lovers and those less familiar with the art form.
