Today’s Guest

Wife, mother of three and music studio owner, Rachel Davis loves a good challenge. Though officially Canadian, she was born and raised in the United States where she received 20 years of piano training and spent the first 7 years of her private piano teaching career. After marrying her Canadian husband in 2013, Rachel moved to Canada. In 2019, she opened Three Sisters Music Studio in Cochrane, AB.

Rachel’s motivation for teaching comes from a passion to see others learn to express their emotions in a healthy and safe way through music. She does this through her signature blend of fun, creativity and a dash of chaos. Her goal is to see every student move through life equipped with the tools needed to process the world around them, empowered to impact others, and instilled with a never ending love of music.
