I am a music educator with 12 years teaching experience in private lessons, public schools, and private schools. I play many instruments and many different styles. I brake the material down in a way everyone can understand and I don't let students walk away confused about the material or have unanswered questions. I love to teach all age groups and all learning styles.

About Cindle V.

Hello, my name is Cindle V. and I love teaching music and chess. I have been teaching for 12 years. I have a bachelor's degree in music education and am currently teaching around 30 lessons a week to students ranging in ability from beginner to professional. My experience working with all types of learners allows me to easily tailor lessons to the student.

Currently, I play in 2 active bands and produce my own music. I am a member of The National Music Educators Association, OPSICA, and am a nationally licensed teacher. I also work with local chess clubs.

I teach my clients in my home music studio. I work with singers, guitarists/bassists, pianists, instrumentalists, string, & songwriters/producers/composers in a wide age range, assorted skill levels with a variety of musical goals.

Some of the musical styles I regularly teach: Rock, Indie Rock, Metal, Hard Rock, Alternative, Pop, Punk, Blues, Jazz, Funk, Soul, R&B, Classical.

My daughter is really enjoying learning the game of chess. I wish we would have found Cindle online 3 years ago.

It's been a great experience especially while being hunkered down during COVID.
