Equipping and nurturing musicians of all ages to

excel, engage, create, and soar!

Classical, Improvisation, Worship


Many of Cherlyn's students have soared to great places:

Professional Careers in Violin performance

Professional Careers in Teaching

Worship bands/teams across the United States & throughout the world

Fiddle players and competition winners

And....others simply have fun expressing themselves,

learning to be the best that they can be!



Here at Cherlyn's Music Studios (CMS) we are busy with performances and getting ready for our Spring Concert with Jazz Clubs [email protected] Flower Wine Shop! We are thrilled to be performing again - a yearly event - at this wonderful venue. Jazz Clubs NW has been voted one of the top Jazz Clubs in the United States by Downbeat Magazine. We'll be a variation from that, bringing a fresh breeze of Classical and Improvisation, including some hymns. Come and join us for this fun evening on Sunday, June 10th, at 5:30pm! Wild Flower has a wonderful menu of truly fabulous organic Mediterranean food, and is family-friendly.

If you are looking for a place to get a solid musical foundation with the best training, truly excel, engage in the community, create music and soar, then CMS may be a great fit for you.

As a performing musician who truly loves to teach, I specialize in training musicians of all ages to be the very best they can be, and we have fun in the process. In addition, as a performing and recording artist with many years of experience, I give my students unique perspectives and opportunities. 

In addition, I teach Improvisation, with a focus towards playing for worship, for both violinists/violists and pianists who have a desire to use their gifts for worship.

Email me and tell me about you or your child, and the instrument that you desire to study, and if you'd like to be on my waiting list we'll set up a time to meet. I look forward to getting to know you!
