 Develop your passion for music through private lessons and classes!

Greetings!  My name is Cheryl Suwardi, and I teach instrumental music lessons and classes. I have 17 years of teaching experience, bachelors and masters degrees in music education, and an Indiana music teacher license.  

I am currently enrolling students for fall music lessons. Lessons are available for violin, viola, cello, flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, trumpet, and piano.  If you do not know which instrument to choose, you can try the ones that interest you during an instrument demonstration lesson. Lessons are $30 per half hour.  Reviews by parents and students:  Website,  Book with Me

Also available are Family Music Classes.  This class is designed to introduce children, ages 0-5, to music and instruments along with their parents and siblings. Classes meet on Wednesdays at 6:10 p.m.  We hope you can join us! 


String, woodwind, brass, and percussion instrument rentals and purchases are available through our affiliate program.  For more information, please click here, email me, or call me. 


By choosing me as your music teacher, you will be able to learn technique, musicianship, music theory, composition, music history, and world music.  My students have performed locally and across the country in concerts and honor festivals.  Your lessons curriculum is personalized to fit your needs, goals, and developmental level.


Teaching is my passion, and students benefit from our lessons and classes through enhanced musicianship as well as leadership, cooperation, independence, confidence, self-expression, and creativity.  Music lessons enable students to have higher self-esteem, better grades, and a brighter outlook on life.
