Hello! My name is Cheryl, and I would be delighted to help you reach your music goals! I've been teaching private lessons and classes since 2000. I love helping my students learn how to play their instruments and learn about music, particularly in understanding the elements of music, musicianship, and personal expression. I went to VanderCook College of Music and earned bachelors and masters degree in music education. I also hold teacher licenses in Indiana, Illinois, and California. I have been recognized in the publications "Who's Who Among America's Teachers" and the Rancho Santa Margarita Patch "Whiz Biz". I am a friendly and outgoing person and my teaching style is caring, organized, and fun. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!+ Read More
