Cherie is a versatile teacher offering guitar and voice lessons out of her home studio in Greenbrae, Marin CA. With more than 500 students throughout her career, she offers a wide range of teaching techniques and a creative teaching spirit to ensure great outcomes for students.
Cherie offers a supportive, fun, musical and professional music education for students of all levels and ages. She has taught at The Blue Bear School of Music in San Francisco and has run an independent teaching business over the past 20 years.
If you want something that is better than some online pre-packaged method-of-the-week - and to work with a real musician, composer and artist - Cherie is the real thing.
Cherie a consummate professional who knows her stuff and has been teaching for many years in NY and the Bay Area. She's also a good communicator, lots of patience and a nice person to interact with.
I'm breaking into writing songs and Marlana has helped me get over a huge block I've had for years. She's really helped me expand my guitar skills so I can write with a fresh sound. And how to fine tune my performance.
I have to give Cherie 5-stars. She recently moved her teaching business to Marin and I'm so happy I can finally get back to lessons with her. I studied with her years ago when I lived in SF, I was a complete beginner back then.
I have now expanded into a new area in my music lessons with voice training. Each lesson gives me more confidence and assurance in my playing and singing. I highly recommend Cherie. I am also impressed with her as a performer and feel honored to have her as my musical guru.
I have experimented with music (guitar and harmonica) for a number of years without any direction or form and I'm so blessed to have found Cherie. She creates a relaxing environment where I can focus and understand music theory
