In the Get to know our Coaches feature we have our coaches share a bit more about themselves, their experience in the music industry, what inspires them and what interests they have outside of music.
Today we have the multi-instrumental coach Rachel Florence. Rachel joined Big Music in 2017 and coaches drums, guitar, piano, bands and rock shows!
