About me

www.rebeccalynn.ca

For Rebecca Barritt, the only constant in life has been a passion for music. She began writing songs when she was 6 years old and never stopped, most recently fronting the Victoria-based band Phantom Thieves. As a songwriter, Rebecca is fiercely honest and defiantly vulnerable – never shying away from the beauty, complexities, and hidden fears that come with being alive.

Rebecca has been offering music lessons since 2010. Her warm passion for music – and for people – shines through in her work with her students. She connects with each student to discover their reasons for wanting to learn music. Whether they are beginning with the basics or reaching for new levels of artistry, Rebecca works to help students find their way towards the soulfulness and self-expression that music promises at its best.

Lesson details

My approach is generally multi-faceted as I believe although music brings people together, we all need something a little different from learning an instrument. I find out what you are looking for, then we work together to find a style and teaching method that will best suit your needs. This often depends on your goals, but also the time you are wanting to put into it. Whatever your hopes are for learning something new in music, my goal is to help get you there.

Education and Accreditation

I have been taking private music lessons for 25 years in a variety of instruments, piano, voice, violin and guitar. I took a year of music courses at PBI in Aberta, and started teaching music in 2012, and started teaching at Larsen Music in 2014. I also have a bachelor of social work from UVIC.
