    Cherie is a great instructor. Before I started lessons with her I was trying to teach myself and found that I’d hit a wall, just wasn’t getting where I wanted to be, she helped me out of that rut. She opened up my options by laying down the basics, then expanded my palette based on where I wanted to go with songs and guitar. She likes to balance what she calls the weigh-lifting of guitar and the fun stuff - exercises and songs. I never felt bored or very frustrated. She pays attention. I really felt she was teaching me what I needed to learn. She also teaches singing lessons and we worked a bit on my vocals during our guitar lessons. Was a nice add-on. She’s a pro and very easy to work with.

    I have experimented with music (guitar and harmonica) for a number of years without any direction or form and I'm so blessed to have found Cherie. She creates a relaxing environment where I can focus and understand basic music theory, she makes it comprehensive which others have not been able to do up to this point. And I have now expanded into a new area in my music lessons with voice training. Each lesson gives me more confidence and assurance in my playing and singing. I highly recommend Cherie. I am also impressed with her as a performer and feel honored to have as my musical guru.
