Rachel McGuire
  • Rachel McGuire began her musical studies in the Iowa City Community School District music program because she wanted to be like her sister who was playing violin..but not exactly like her sister, so she chose the viola instead. It was a fateful decision that has led to a lifelong passion for music and dedication to music education! Ms. McGuire earned her bachelor's degree in viola performance and music education from the University of Iowa and her master's degree in music education from Western Washington University. She has played music and taught in three states before settling in Pennsylvania and the North Allegheny School District starting in the fall of 2019.
