My name is Cheryl Brown and recently retired from teaching K-8 public school music teaching in Chicago. My credentials include a Bachelor of Music Performance (1986) from the American Conservatory of Music in Chicago and a Master of Arts in Music Education (1992) from Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago.

I’ve taught piano and flute for-over 35 years beginning at a small music store in Monterey, California, my hometown, Nothing I more satisfying than watching a student’s sudden smile when they ‘nail’ that rough part of a favorite song:

For thirty-seven years I’ve performed in country clubs as well as luxury hotels. I’ve also performed for Chicago Bears and Bulls legends Michael Jordan, Ryne Sandberg, Walter Payton, and Mike Singletary.

My Teaching Objective: My commitment to you is teaching you YOUR favorite songs and thoroughly enjoy your lesson! My hope is that each student has an eagerness to return to each week with enthusiasm.
