Rachel Francis was born in Saten Island and spent the majority of her upbringing in upstate New York. She picked up a guitar at the age of 15 and almost never put it down! She has since invested thousands of hours rehearsing and performing - at times, practicing eight hours a day. By the age of 16, Rachel was playing professionally and was hired for gigs regularly - playing with musicians older and more experienced, but holding her own, nonetheless. She has immersed herself in all styles and genres - but is most passionate about jazz & R&B. She is the lead guitarist in the jazz ensemble at Southwestern Assemblies of God University where she is studying music education.

Passionate about helping others fall in love with music, Rachel brings and energy and enthusiasm to teaching that is unmatched. She is a true encourager and finds tremendous joy in cultivating the dreams and potential in others. Destiny Studio is so privileged to have Rachel on the coaching team!
