Gerri G. Sherman Oaks, CA

About Gerri

My musical career has taken me around the globe from Japan, to the Caribbean as well as numerous cities in the U.S. and Europe! A New York City native, I graduated James Madison University's renowned music program, and began work in musical theatre, playing such roles as Z.’s Favorite in The national tour of “The Will Roger’s Follies, Sandy in “Grease,” and Velma Von Tussle in “Hairspray” regionally, to name a few. I then went on to tour the world with a cabaret show opening for legends such as Nell Carter and Neil Sedaka, and it has been a fantastic journey so far! Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to sing most genres of music from gospel to pop and have a passion for encouraging students in their talents, singing the styles of music they love! I believe we are all so

Great instructor

Gerri is a great teacher as she brings out the best efforts in our daughter (who often approaches new ideas/people/activities with trepidation). She helps our daughter understand her lessons in a very clear and absorbable fashion. We highly recommend her.

Wonderful teacher! I've had a rough time with my voice in many aspects of my life, including teaching yoga, and Alexandra helps me so much! She will actually get up and do yoga to ensure that I am communicating effectively, in a timely matter, and that my pronunciation is spot on. She has so many ideas and exercises and is very passionate about what she does and helping others!!

Amanda M. Canoga Park, CA

I have danced my entire life and have been teaching on and off for 15 years. I will assess your level at our first meeting and set a class at that level. As you grow and become stronger I will adjust and increase the level of strengths and technique. We can perfect lead role choreography and audition routines. I enjoy inspiring a love for dance and watching all the hard work and dedication transform a child/adult into the dancer they want to be.

I specialize in intermediate and advanced level ballerinas looking to fine tune their skills for auditions and perfecting lead roles. However, teaching and inspiring young children has been newly found passion of mine. I enjoy watching the development of their skills reached by practice, patience and commitment.
