Cheryl Lewis began teaching piano out of her private studio in 1980 and quickly realized that God had gifted her with a love of music and a passion for teaching children. In 1990 she began group instruction for piano and found that her students loved it! Forming special groups (which at the time included her two young sons Jason and Jayme along with their friends), Cheryl realized that working with small groups of children made the lesson time more fun and exciting. It wasn’t long before she began creating her own method books in order to teach her own sons to love and enjoy music. 30 years later, she is thrilled to have her two sons, Jason and Jayme (both with Bachelors of Music Degrees from CSUN) and her husband at her side as professional colleagues, teachers, and co owners of Lewis Music Academy Inc.
As you watch this unique musical family share their gifts and talents with children of all ages, it is obvious that the gifts that God has given to Cheryl, were also given to her sons. It is sheer enjoyment to watch this family as they work together to teach children to love and appreciate music. The Lewis Family believes that children should have fun while making music and they strive to help students gain a sense of pride and self confidence as they learn how to read and understand musical notation.
