RACHEL KIBBLEWHITE GUITAR TEACHER
Rachel’s interest in guitar was sparked when she watched the scene in ‘Back to the Future’ where Marty Mcfly blows everyone away with his talent playing an electric guitar. With an unstoppable determination to be as good, Rubita started guitar lessons, and at age 16 she discovered a love for songwriting. Her musical adventure reached new heights during her time studying at Otago University, where she studied electric guitar and played alongside successful musicians from the likes of ‘Soaked Oats’, ‘The Shambles’ and ‘Earth to Zena’. Rachel graduated from Otago University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Music majoring in Electric Guitar.
Rachel gained an abundance of performance skills during university, and soon decided to form her band 'Rubita' alongside other talented musicians in 2016. Rachel her first E.P ‘Brutal yet Dulce Soap’ the same year. The E.P was fine-tuned and perfected with the help of well-renowned producer Scott Newth, who has been heavily involved with Rubita's success. For the last 3 years, Rachel has been teaching in Wellington, touring NZ and working on her debut album ‘Distinctive Thrill’ - soon due to be released.
