About Music Lessons
Hi, Iím Cheri Headrick. I teach piano and voice lessons in classical and contemporary styles. Music theory and ear training instruction are also available for those who are interested.
Ages 5 and up are welcome, I can teach beginners and advanced students at $25-$35 dollars an hour, depending on location of the lesson.
I am in the NWA area and can provide service in Bentonville, Rogers, Fayetteville and surrounding areas. I have a B.A. in Music with a voice emphasis (Class of 2011) and have been playing the piano for 18 years.
Contact me if you're interested in a fun and challenging learning experience!
Questions and answers
- What brands or products do you work with?
For voice lessons I like the I and II books of Soprano, Alto, and Tenor solos compiled by Joan Frey Boytim as well as The Definitive Broadway Collection and anything else published by Hal Leonard. For Piano I work with the student to choose music, and if they are just beginning I like John Thompson, Suzuki, and Albert's Basic Piano Library.
- What questions should a customer ask before hiring a professional in your trade?
Would the instructor be able to work with personal goals and desires for music learning?
What type of sheet music would be needed and where can I get it?
Would I need to provide any other resources?
What would I be looking at for practice time if I wanted to improve as quickly as possible?
- What types of jobs are the most common?
Most people just want to learn how to sing properly, or how to play their favorite song on the piano. We can do that. I can help you. It doesn't have to be complicated.
- Tell us something customers may not know about you.
I grew up overseas so I'm quite multicultural. I can be pretty fun to work with. I am also Canadian and I welcome any jokes in my direction because of it.
- How many projects do you average in a year?
Right now I have three full time students. When summer is over I expect to have anywhere between 5 and 10.
- What areas of your trade do you specialize in?
I specialize in the technique of classical vocal training and learning how to play chords by ear from a chord sheet. Sight reading, piano instruction, as well as Music Theory principals are also areas of expertise.
- Tell us about the project or job that you are most proud of (in the last 12 months).
I had a student who could only study with me for two months. We crammed music theory, vocal technique, sight reading, and playing by ear in under 8 lessons. It was fun and exciting to see how quickly she improved and how much she retained.
- What certifications or professional affiliations do you have?
I am an alumnus of Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, an institution that has a wonderful reputation for its Music Department. Dr. Arnold Rawls, a member of the Metropolitan Opera House, is a former faculty member and mentor.
- What do you wish customers knew about your profession or trade?
Learning music can be so much fun! It doesn't have to be difficult. We can work together at a speed that works for each individual. It is especially beneficial for children to learn an instrument. It kick starts their minds and their creativity.
- What are the most frequent questions you get from customers? What are the answers?
Is this going to be hard? Yes. Is this going to be fun? Yes! Where do I find music? Online or in a local music store. What kind of music can we do? Some songs I choose, and some songs you choose. Do we meet once a week or more? Whatever you prefer.
- What would you recommend customers looking to save money?
I would recommend coming to my place of business rather than choosing to have lessons in their own home. Also finding music from a friend or second hand shop would save them from purchasing it.
- What services do you provide your customers after the work has finished?
When a student has finished their lessons with me I am always available for questions, resources and support.
- What information do you recommend to have readily available before looking for a professional in your trade?
I recommend knowing what you want out of your lessons. Also, being willing to set aside time to practice. Lessons accomplish nothing without practice.
- How did you get started?
I've always been interested in music, even as a child. My mother was also a voice teacher. I went to college to pursue my career and found that teaching lessons was my passion.

Cheri has been my son's piano teacher for almost a year, and he has shown real improvement over that time. She is a competent and knowledgeable instructor and we are fortunate to have her services. I highly recommend her to any level piano student.- Davis
