My son and daughter have had piano lessons with Cheri from Middle C Music for over a year, the past few months over Skype. We have had a terrific experience. My kids are very different, my daughter has autism and does not speak much and my son can get anxious, but Cheri is incredibly patient and works with both kids at their level. She goes out of her way to engage them with the music and works with them to select music they are interested in.Jul 13, 2018
This is the first time I use thumbtack and I am very happy with the instructor. My kids feel comfortable with her and actually enjoy learning, she makes the lessons fun, I would definately refer her to friends , family!!Jul 11, 2018
We had the pleasure of working with Cheri for 7 years! We loved the flexibility as she as very sensitive with working around other seasonal activities that would come up. She was very responsive via text and email. The service and energy she provided to our 3 kids was a wonderful value. We feel she provided a very solid basis for piano, and they are excited to learn other instruments now as well! We would highly recommend Cheri for exposure to music.Sep 21, 2017

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?$25 for one 30 minute lesson. If you would like a longer lesson or have multiple students (siblings, friends, neighbors etc) in one location, the rate drops to $40/hour.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I talk to the parents and students together about previous music experience (if none that is totally okay!) and what goals they may have for their lessons. I am very student centered, make sure they are comfortable and most importantly that they have fun. My primary objective is to help my students develop a love for music that will last a lifetime.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Bachelor's degree in music from Western Michigan University. Served as an intern at the Stockley Center in Georgetown, Delaware. Music Therapist-Board Certified. Worked 12 years as a music therapist at Music To Grow On in Sacramento specializing in working with children with disabilities.
