Get to know Cheri Cancila

Hello, and welcome to Music and Arts!

I began my teaching career with Piano and Guitar in August of 1980. Since then, I’ve had 

the honor of teaching hundreds of students of all ages, and skill levels. I enjoy playing, 

and teaching a variety of musical genres.

I’ve been a member of various Associations for Music Teachers, and in recent years, 

taught at Music Maker’s Conservatory in Helena, Montana. After the birth of my 

Grandson, I decided to move back to the Seattle area; He was a true “Game 


As the years have passed, I find myself even more passionate in sharing the true gift 

that Music is.
