Cheri has great patience and humor; key attributes in teaching an adult with no prior music experience.  My lessons include a lot of theory which is perfect.  Learning to play the piano is a great antidote to work stress!
Diane Bright, York
Cheri brings new life to every performance with faithful instruction and an openness to individual self expression. Her technical and intuitive skills bring the highest quality to any music or artistic venue.
Rosemary Mijal, Musical Theater Director, Teacher, Performer
Cheri has been teaching our children piano lessons for three years.  She is enthusiastic, encouraging, patient, and fun!  Our children enjoy their lessons and have been learning and improving each week.  I give her my highest recommendation. 
Amy Hyett
My daughter, who is 8, enjoys her lessons with Cheri and comes away with fresh excitement every week.  She is getting a rock-solid foundation in music from these lessons.
Diane Bright, York
Cheri has many God given talents that run through her  fingers! She’s an avid gardener, pianist, singer, and musician.  She creates incredible hand painted scarves and silk jewelry and invites color into her world.
Her artistic vision is endless, it’s in her soul!
Brenda Elwell-Taylor, owner Brenda’s Bloomers Inc.
I have known Cheri for many years and she is always working on her art and bringing her creative talents into new and exciting projects that then in turn inspire others.  I own much of her art from cards to paintings to beautiful scarves.  Her work is truly creative and touches your heart.
