Sheryl Phillips recently relocated to Maryland after teaching many years in California. She is currently building a studio in Beltsville, MD and has openings at multiple levels. Her studio is convenient for students traveling from Montgomery, Howard, Anne Arundel and Prince George’s Counties.

Ms. Phillips has a degree in music education with piano as her performance instrument, a California music teaching credential, 18 years classroom experience in both public and private schools and 30 years experience as a studio piano teacher. While in California, she became convinced of the great benefits of Suzuki instruction after witnessing the extraordinary achievements made by her own children and their friends under the tutelage of excellent Suzuki violin teachers.

Thus began a period of several summers of study to learn how to apply Suzuki principles to piano instruction. Not surprisingly, Ms. Phillips found that students who were trained with these principles generally learned more easily and happily, made more rapid progress and played more artistically than students without them. Now, every student in her studio is applying the Suzuki principles.

Ms. Phillips is now accepting new students of all levels through early advanced. The Suzuki curriculum will be supplemented with studies in theory, sight-reading, group classes, ensemble work, recitals and evaluations.
