I teach private music and guitar lessons to children ages 7 through 18 including college prep for auditions and adults.
Your child will learn how to read music, play melody and chords and progressively acquire skills as a musician and guitarist. Music theory, ear training and rhythm study are included.
This is perfect for home schooled children or as a supplement to public or private school music programs.
Learning an instrument teaches focus and goal setting strategies, develops self-direction and self-esteem, plus the added benefit of developing the brain for academic achievement.
And, it's just plain FUN!!

I have been a musician for over 30 years. I hold a music degree from Montclair State University and have over 14 years of teaching experience.

“My daughter Michelle learned from Cheryl since 2015 Spring.
After three months, Michelle could play a song in June in front of audience in Madison Hotel, NJ.
Michelle got inspired from Cheryl so much and she liked to attend guitar lessons all the time.
We believe that Cheryl is an outstanding guitar teacher for any beginning guitar learner.”
“Cheryl is an excellent teacher and I am so glad I started my guitar lessons with her.
I have played guitar on my own for a few years but I felt stuck at my current level and wanted to expand my guitar skills.
Cheryl is very patient and encouraging. The exercises she gives me are challenging but she teaches me everything I need
to work on them and I am making so much progress. Cheryl is very knowledgeable about guitar and extremely qualified.
I would strongly recommend her to any level guitar player!”
“As a guitar teacher, Cheryl has been the perfect mix of knowledge, patience and encouragement.
I haven't learned how to play an instrument in 30 years and her expert instruction as well as her ability to make me feel
at ease about missteps and applauding my successes has made the experience a real pleasure. I can also see that I am making progress.
I highly recommend her.”
