“My daughters and I have been taking lessons with Cheri for almost six years and are amazed at both the breadth and the depth of her ability.The things she has taught us have ranged from classical fare to jazz, improvisation skills (in a variety of musical styles), theory and ear training and lead sheet reading. We have participated in the MMTA contests and both my daughters have received ‘high distinction’ as their result.Cheri has been worth every penny that our lessons cost, and the travel time it takes us to get to her studio.”
