About Cheryl

I grew up in a musical family where learning to play guitar was like learning to tie your shoes. I became a Professional Musician at the age of 16 as Lead Vocalist and Guitarist. I studied Voice privately with Michael Lawrence of The Metropolitan Opera. I have taught private lessons for more than 10 years. I was a Music Minister for 7 years. I was active in my churches always in the Music and Drama departments and assisted in the development of a School of the Arts in Greensboro, N.C., Arts Evangelica, and taught Guitar and Voice. I also assisted in major productions. I taught Music and Drama in a private school, Servant’s Heart, (umbrella organization,) Christ Academy, and traveled with a Christian Arts Presentation, toured many cities, churches, and venues in the U.S. and Canada as a vocalist, including the 1996 Olympics. I have written two original children's musicals and Directed them. I have been a Music Minister/ Worship Leader, and Children’s Choir Director. I have been in and led many bands including one with students who I helped elevate to a professional level.
I am a Professional Musician with extensive experience locally and Nationally. I have worked with students of all ages and have contributed to their growth from beginner amateur to Recording Artist status. I have signed contracts with National Managers and Producers and Recording Labels. I am quite confident that I can help you improve in skill and confidence.
I look forward to working with you. References and auditions available upon request.

I am an accomplished Vocalist, Instrumentalist, as well as songwriter owning many copyrights. Examples of my music can be heard online. I have 4 daughters who are gifted as well and I helped them discover their best musical expressions. I am a patient and excellent teacher/tutor with a keen ear. I am fun loving but serious. I have only known one truly tone deaf person in all my experience and am willing to work with you to accomplish your desired level of achievement. I have unique ability to inspire,

I love Music and it is at the very core of what makes me tick. I can help you achieve your desired level of accomplishment and if your skills surpass my abilities I will gladly refer you elsewhere so that you can excel in your musical endeavors whether that is school performance or professional.
