Rebecca Pieper

Miss Rebecca has been teaching, directing, and performing in the Lehigh Valley for 22 years. A native of New York, she began her music career with piano lessons at the age of three and, by 17, she was performing at the NYSTS Young Artists Winners Recital at Carnegie Hall. Miss Rebecca double majored in vocal performance and music education at Westminster Choir College. 

In addition to teaching in her private studio, Miss Rebecca is an Adjunct Professor of Voice in the Theatre Department at DeSales University and an accredited long-distance instructor for Berklee College of Music.  She is also the music director for the Southern Lehigh School District's High School Musicals.

Miss Rebecca holds many professional and educational certifications, including: Levels 1-3 of Contemporary Commercial Music with Shenandoah University CCM Institute, NeuroVocal Method Certification, Meisner Certification, Chekhov Acting Technique Certification, Musical methodologies of Orff, Kodaly, Dalcroze and in the 4Mat Teaching System, Certification from the Westminster Choir College Summer Voice Institute, and Early Childhood Certification through the Musikgarten Program.

Miss Rebecca maintains an active performance career that crosses the bridge between musical theatre and opera throughout New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Locally, she has directed, choreographed, music directed, accompanied, and ran camps at Chansonette, NCC, PA Playhouse, Civic Theatre, Nazareth Middle School and High School, Nazareth Center For The Arts, and many more. She loves being on both sides of the stage as a performer. 

Miss Rebecca finds it extremely important to teach to the individual student. Lessons are structured around the student, not a publisher’s curriculum. She recognizes the importance of producing a musician for life, and she is passionate about training her students to have a healthy and functional voice.

Passionate about lifelong learning, networking, and community building, Miss Rebecca holds memberships with Lehigh Valley Music Teachers Association, Music Teachers National Association, Music Theatre Educators Alliance, National Association of Teachers of Singing (Lehigh Valley President, Member of New Jersey, Eastern Regional & National Level) Pennsylvania Music Teachers National Association (Chapter President), and SpeakEasy Cooperative.

Alumni and Current Students of Ms. Rebecca's studio can be found on Broadway Stages, National Tours, Professional and Semi Professional Opera Houses and Theatres, Coffee Houses, and Concert Halls locally and across the country. In addition to numerous students being Freddy Award winners, they have also been finalists and winners in local, regional and national vocal competitions.

Outside the studio, Miss Rebecca is a mother of two not-so-little boys, Carson and Brandon. In addition to teaching, learning, and performing, she loves fitness, food, fashion, and her friends.

Malana Wilson

Social Media and Studio Manager


Malāna Wilson holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre and a Music Minor from Texas Tech University, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude as a first-generation student. Her variety of experiences brought her to find great joy and love in teaching. Having studied both classical and musical theatre styles, Malāna greatly supports cross-training and believes every singer should explore all aspects of their voice, never feeling confined to one style. She also strongly believes in vocal health, and values technique and the vocal safety of her students above all else.

Malāna began studying harp at the age of six through the University of North Texas and began classical voice lessons shortly after. In high school, she was nominated for Best Actress in the Dallas Summer Musicals High School Musical Theatre Awards and the Betty Buckley Awards. She also received numerous accolades for her performances in the University Interscholastic League (UIL)’s One Act Play competition.

Malāna performed in over ten productions during her undergraduate career. She also served as the assistant music/choral director for Guys and Dolls and A Chorus Line. She studied harp privately and performed with the University Harp Ensemble, where she honed her musical skills arranging and transcribing musical theatre and pop music repertoire for the instrument. Malāna also competed at the National Opera Association Musical Theatre Scenes Competition, placing second in 2020 and first in 2021. She placed second in her region for musical theatre in the 2021 National Association for Teachers of Singing (NATS) Competition for her senior recital character study, Christine Daaé from The Phantom of the Opera

After graduating from Texas Tech in 2021, Malāna relocated to her home state of Pennsylvania after graduation and began to establish herself in the area as a performer and teacher, shadowing Ms. Rebecca’s lessons. She studies in the studio of Alyce Daubenspeck. Within the next few years, she aspires to receive her master’s degree in music. 

When not teaching or performing, Malāna can be found spending time with her family, especially her nephew, or playing Xbox.
