Dr. Rachel Friedman and her conducting baton

Rachel Friedman

Conductor, Violinist, and Teacher

Dr. Rachel Friedman has spent her life in music as a violinist, violist, conductor, and teacher. Raised in a musical household, she began violin and piano at a young age and started conducting orchestras in high school. Her love of playing in orchestras and teaching life lessons through music led her to study conducting, violin performance, and music education - culminating in her doctorate in May 2017.

An avid adventurer, Rachel enjoys travelling and frequently performs and teaches at many beautiful summer festivals and orchestras around the world.
