Cheryl Beattie – Managing Director

Cheryl spent 10 years in New York and London singing and writing songs with some of the best in the business, including Steinberg and Kelly who wrote songs for Whitney and Madonna. While in New York Cheryl was managed by Whitney Houston’s manager, Gene Harvey and was signed by BMG Records.

In London Cheryl’s manager was John Wadlow, Seal’s former manager. It was here she had the pleasure of working with Seal’s guitarist Mark Summerlin and even recorded an album with Sting’s band. After being signed by Warner Bros Cheryl’s song ‘Fly’, originally written as a ballad, went number 1 in the dance clubs around London.

With this whirlwind experience behind her Cheryl moved back to Australia and set up home on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula.

“It’s always been my dream to start a music school and inspire others to write and perform songs,” tells Cheryl.

The Music Industry is very different to most music schools with so many opportunities for our students to grow as individuals as they perform live with other musicians to develop their skills, build confidence and even record their own songs in our recording studio.

“I want to share my knowledge with anyone who is interested in music, to inspire, motivate and enrich your life with music.”
