Super laid back, custom lessons for exactly what you want. We set goals and milestones, you get homework to practice. You will learn basic theory along with sight reading and ear training skills. No matter what genre you'd like to learn, we'll cover a few classics and dive into what you really want to be playing.

Full recording Studio including 2 Yamaha keyboards, Mackie mixer, RodeN21A mics, M-Audio Studio Monitors (recording studio)

Beatboxing ·

Cheryl came into my school and did a beatbox workshop with my students. She was super prepared, knowledgeable, and fun to work with! I was amazed by how much my students learned in one workshop!!

Singing · In home

I started out taking Piano lessons with Cheryl and later switched to voice lessons. My brother and I took lessons with her for about 8 or so years and we love her! I learned a lot about harmonizing, pitch and my singing improved a lot. Highly recommend.

Piano · In studio

I took piano lessons with Cheryl for a month and learned so much in a short amount of time! She customized lessons to my skill level and interest in songwriting and assigned me songs to learn that were both challenging and fun!
