All singin' all the time!


Rita has always been a singer and she started teaching professionally when she began working at the Old Town School of Folk Music in 2000. She started playing piano at age 5, whenever she could get near one (!) and took up guitar about 20 years ago. Rita has performed at the University of Chicago Folk Festival. She has also taught at midwest music festivals and internationally.

Rita's musical knowledge of country and southern gospel songs and her talent for finding harmonies are born of pure passion for what she sings.

A singer since childhood, Rita learned by hearing others sing and approaches much of what she does with a focus toward listening.
