Wonderful Experience with Cherie


I had lessons once a week with Cherie in Midland TX for 6 weeks, and it was a wonderful experience. I had almost zero experience prior to meeting her, and she got me to the point where I am comfortable sight reading on my own. She is an extremely kind and intelligent woman, she knows her stuff and she teaches very effectively. I would recommend her to anyone.
