Rachal began studying voice and piano early on in her childhood and at age sixteen she began to study with Professor Lorraine Buffington at University of Miami. Rachal studied with such musicians as Randall Reid Smith, Martin Katz, Ed Sarath, and Luretta Bybee. She had performed internationally over the past 15 years and has sung with both the Lyric Orchestra and Phoenix Opera under the direction/coaching of Gail Dubinbaum Massaro. Rachal is a graduate of University of Michigan with a BM in Vocal Performance. She first opened RLS Studios in 2004 in Florida and then had the unique opportunity to go bi- coastal opening another studio in Phoenix Arizona. RLS Studios currently houses over sixty students, a stellar faculty, and many young artists who are now entering many prestigious colleges and performing on and off-Broadway. Rachal is currently the Resident Vocal Director at the Florida Children’s Theatre where her studio is housed.

Along with vocal coaching, Rachal has directed numerous musicals including Pirates of Penzance, Songs for A New World, Wizard of Oz and 35 MM. Most recently, Rachal has continued to push her own creative boundaries scoring music for numerous films including “Once Upon a Christmas” and a new musical movie pilot due out in 2024 “Teenage Musical”. Rachal is also an avid songwriter and music producer for young artists throughout South Florida. She is also slated to perform a one-woman show in the Winter of 2023 at the Maltz Theatre Black box under the tutelage of renowned Broadway producer Mark Keller and has just finished a run of Bridges of Madison Countyas Marian. Rachal served on the University of Michigan Phoenix Board for three years, one as Treasurer and is the current Auditions Coordinator for NATS Gold Coast Region.

She believes in the mentoring of the whole person, not just the skill, and knows that this idea creates strong, determined practice that evolves into self-determination and success in many area of their lives. Her goal for each student is to have their own unique identity and sound as a performer and feel confident to enter the world of Musical Theatre as a young, confident professional.
