Any musician has the capability of improvement. My students love my fast paced way to improve technique through modeling and metaphors.

My name is Cherish. I am a Choral Director for a PA school district. I've been teaching music theory, piano, and voice for the last 7 years privately and publicly. My bachelor's degree is from Kutztown University where I received a Bachelor of Science in Music Education: Voice. MY Master's degree is from Messiah College where I received a Master of Choral Conducting.

I've studied with many professionals in Voice and Vocal Pedagogy for the last 16 years. I've also played classical and jazz piano for 20 years. My favorite vocal style is Broadway and Classical: Italian.

I love to be goofy and serious with the right balance. Deadlines are always met. All my students are a priority! I'm experienced with slow learners and special needs students. Please join me for a lesson today!
