Miss Rebekah Lashley
Voice / Piano / Band
A Navarre native, Rebekah is the Operations Manager at Minds On Music, a Voice and Piano instructor, and she works with our student band, Noteworthy. She has a passion for teaching that began at a young age— just ask her a little brother, who was one of her first piano students! Having grown up in a musical family, she began taking piano lessons at 5 years old and continued through college. She began taking formal voice lessons while in high school and went on to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Vocal Performance from The University of West Florida, as well as Master’s degree credits in the same from Baylor University. Rebekah now lives in Gulf Breeze with her husband, Braylen, who serves as the Associate Pastor of Worship and Media at Midway Baptist Church.
One of Rebekah’s favorite things about teaching at Minds On Music is all the unique resources offered to our students, such as the Recording Studio and the In-House Stage. These resources allow her the opportunity to help develop musicians from their first lesson, to their first recording session, to their first recital performance, and everything in between. Each student has different hurdles to jump and Miss Rebekah is all about finding which approach (or analogy) works best for each student.
In addition to studying music for most of her life, Miss Rebekah played basketball, volleyball, and softball for the majority of her childhood and into high school, and now coaches basketball for her church's Upward league. She finds this athletic knowledge to be helpful when communicating with students in lessons, and even says that it often times leads to breakthroughs! When Miss Rebekah isn’t at the studio, you can find her at the beach with her husband and two dogs, drinking Dr. Pepper, and eating Chick-Fil-A nuggets!
