· Piano · In studio Cheryl is remarkable. She engaged with my 6 year old nephew immediately. She made it fun for him and he had a great timeand, all the while he was learning much more than I expected for a first lesson. Cheryl has a lovely way of building trust. She is a skilled and talented musician and teacher.
I highly recommend Cheryl.
