Ms. Rachel serves as one of our Clarinet Instructors. She grew up in Okaloosa County and is a graduate of Choctaw High School. Ms. Rachel earned her degree in Music Performance from the University of Florida.
Ms. Rachel has experience with both All-County and All-State Honor bands in high school and the University Clarinet Choir, UF Symphony Orchestra, UF Wind Symphony, and the University of Florida Gator Marching Band in college.
When Ms. Rachel is not at either of those places or Grow Your Gift Music Conservatory, she can be found working as a tutor and life skills coach for a 16-year old autistic boy from the local area. Outside of Ms. Hidalgo’s professional music career, she enjoys playing the guitar and ukulele to sing and make videos to share with friends and family from near and far.
