Who is She
Rebecca Brambila has been performing and playing music for over 28 years, picking up a dozen instruments along the way. Her first classroom of music students was presented to her in Guatemala at the age of 15, and she has been enjoying the teaching (and learning!) process since that time. She is passionate about creating, composing, arranging, and finding unique ways to express musical ideas, and helping others to achieve their personal best and individuality in the musical arts. She holds a Bachelor of Music, Summa Cum Laude with honors, with concentrations in choral, piano, composition and arranging, also completing classroom requirements for a teacher licensure. Her Masters courses have included theory and score analysis, composition, and vocal health and technique. She keeps current in the education field by participating in membership of the National Association for Music Education and North Carolina Music Educators Association. Rebecca has received multiple level awards for performance in the field of fiddle, bluegrass, and American folk music, including the Bascom Lamar Lunsford Trophy. A sampling of musical highlights she has been excited to be a part of include bluegrass and rock bands, composition commissions, choral directing and arranging, performing with the Roanoke Symphony and Chorus, NCB Singers and Orchestra, and composing and recording music for local promotional films and PBS television.
