Cherilyn has been singing and playing the piano for as long as she can remember. Classically trained as a child, she came back to the piano as an adult and started taking jazz piano lessons. One thing led to another, and now she is delighted to be able to play with others, a rare privilege for regular piano players. Over the last few years she has had a bunch of fun, going to music camps, playing with amateur jazz combos, C Jam Big Band, and a rock band she got recruited into. She is a music theory geek, and finds jazz very satisfying that way. She loves teaching piano, but because she has a day job, so far she has only taught her own kids. She has enjoyed playing for Westwood for many years.
