Rachel Morgan Im is a wealth of knowledge and expertise. Her phenomenal talent as an educator, performer, and conductor makes her the triple threat that nurtures our choirs to their highest and best potential. Her ability to think outside of the box and create in any circumstance was tested as she turned to video editing to create virtual choir performances during an unforeseen pandemic. The students under her baton, either in person or remote, accelerate in their vocal ability, in music theory, in polyrhythms through instruments or step routines, and personal excellence. All of this talent certainly shines the most through her own compositions that can only come to this world through such an innovated mind.

Rachel Im is professional, efficient, and creative!
At Bello Machre, we provide homes, support, and loving care for people with developmental disabilities throughout Maryland. We needed to make a video of a home tour for prospective families. Rachel provided three high quality amazing videos for three of our accessible community homes. We met with her to go over the project and she ran with it. She scripted, videoed, compiled, edited, and produced a high-quality product. I would highly recommend Rachel Morgan Im!!

With the onset of COVID-19, the possibility to gather in-person for worship was impossible for many weeks. Through Rachel’s innovation we were able to present professional recordings of worship services of the highest quality. She has a great attention to detail, even coming to our worship space at various times of day to capture still shots with a perfect balance of sunlight and color. She maintains technical expertise as well as artistic savvy.
Rachel has an intuitive affinity for video quality that I believe is essential for this line of work. I highly recommend her for any position that highlights her technical, artistic, and intuitive skills as a video editor, technician, and artistic expert.
