Learn how to sing using the best technique. Book lessons with professional music teacher Cheryl Lockett.
Hello! My name is Cheryl Lockett and I am a professional singing tutor located in Merced.
I have a passion for singing and music & can't wait to share that passion with you.
I like to make sure every single lesson is of the highest quality for all of my students.
I teach a wide range of ages from 7 all the way to adults of all ages.
I am a music lover and this reflects in my teaching. I love a wide range of music and can also teach all genres.
I have a vast amount of experience in performing live and can help you gain confidence to do the same.
My lessons are always tailor-made to the individual. I currently only offer one-hour lessons.
I currently offer half-hour lessons only as this is by far the best option if you want to see some real improvement in a short space of time. I would recommend at least one lesson per week for the best results.
'Cheryl has a beautiful gift, vocally and musically, to be able to shape a moment in song. There are many vocalists who can sing a song, but Cheryl crafts moments with her voice that are both artistic and emotionally touching. She goes far beyond learning the songs; she steps into the heart and artistry of the artist she’s portraying.'
'Friday, November 9, 2012, I attended the Sound of Unity concert and witnessed Cheryl Lockett sing a sweeping jazz song by the artist Rachelle Ferrell. Miss Lockett's voice is an aquifer of resonance. It was very comforting, warm and satisfying.'
'Cheryl Lockett is not only the preeminent vocalist in the western region of the country, with a lifetime of experience in all musical settings, but she's a meticulous master of coordinating events and appropriate repertoires with groups of all tastes and purposes. She's more than fun to work with, she's humble but very aware of her prominent role on any stage. Getting Cheryl to your event is a real coup.'
I am an experienced teacher who has been teaching for many years. I can't wait to share my experience with you to make sure you get the most out of your lessons.
I love all styles of music. Because of this, I teach Jazz, Blues, Rock, Pop, Folk, Classical, Gospel & anything else you can think of.
Enjoying what you learn is always the key to improving fast. I will always make sure your lessons are enjoyable and will always build them around what you want.
I have piles of live performance experience because I have been performing for a number of years as well as coming from a musical family. I am the daughter of a founding member of the legendary Blue Notes from Merced.
I teach the majority of my lessons from a dedicated studio located in Merced, CA 95340, USA. I believe this is a great place to learn because it is a comfortable and professional environment. This is important because, from experience, students who feel comfortable whilst learning will generally make fast progress.
