Rebecka Roberts (voice • piano) brings a holistic approach – and a Swedish flavor – as the newest mentor to join the ROOTS team.

Rebecka has been teaching since she started her first gospel choir at age 16, while her studies kept her crossing the globe. After attending Music Production High School in Sweden, she completed a Diploma in Ministry at Hillsong College in Sydney, Australia. Rebecka then returned to Stockholm, earning a Masters in Music Ed at The Royal College of Music.

Known as a lighting director and music teacher, highlights of Rebecka’s career include This is Christmas by Hillsong Church in Stockholm, and lighting concerts for Benny Andersson of ABBA fame at the Royal College of Music.

“I’m passionate about coaching my students towards their goals,” says Rebecka, whose own goal is to help students “become the best version of themselves.”

Q&A with Rebecka

Where do you look for creative inspiration?

I don’t really look for it to be honest; inspiration is always the most real when it finds you.

Of all the places you have traveled, which is your favorite?

I went canoeing with my Mom in the French Riviera a couple of years ago and it was breathtaking. But might I add that a place is never as great unless you have someone to share the experience with.

Give us an idea of your sense of humor. Is there a Youtube video that really made you “laugh out loud”?

There’s this video on YouTube called “Animals Can be Real Jerks,” and it makes me laugh every time.

What type of music did you grow up listening to? Is it the same now? What changed?

There was a lot of skate-rock and Linkin’ Park during my teenage years because that was what my older brother listened to. When I listen to music now it’s almost always jazz.

What is your favorite all time movie and why?

The Parent Trap (the one with Lindsay Lohan); there’s not a dull moment in that movie!

If you could meet one author, performer who would it be and what would you ask them?

I would want to meet JK Rowling and ask her all my nerdy Harry Potter questions.
