Sarah Cawston-Stewart

“Welcome to Pleasant Mountain Music! I couldn’t be more enthusiastic to begin or continue a musical journey with you or your child (or BOTH in some cases)! I aim to instil enjoyment of lessons and commitment to practice in the students who come through my classroom. Finally, I encourage self-expression and musicality as a life-long skill” – Sarah

Chersea Laing

“I am so excited to meet you, work with you to develop your unique skills, and to help you find your individuality and other greatness that makes you so special! I just love the performing arts so much, and I want to share that with you so that you will love it too. Let’s turn your dreams and aspirations into real-life goals.” – Chersea


My practice sessions at PMM are great; the room is clean, organized and spacious, and I could hardly hear a peep from the other lesson rooms

My daughter has been taking voice and piano lessons with Chersea for about two years and I have seen her bloom into an amazing artist. She is continually progressing in her skills and performance abilities, she is gently encouraged and challenged every time she sees Chersea. She truly is the best music teacher to my daughter and we truly love her and appreciate her for everything she does for our daughter. We highly recommend anyone looking for music lessons to consider Pleasant Mountain Music.

I have been a student of Sarah’s for the past three years and she has made my piano learning experience so fun! She makes every class a safe learning environment where I’m not afraid to make mistakes. I get to choose what kind of music I get to play and it helps me stay motivated to keep practicing.

PMM had been recommended to us as a great place to introduce our 9yr old son to piano and I would like to pass on this recommendation to anyone looking for music lessons. Sarah is our teacher and she’s very skilled, has great energy, is supportive, patient and makes learning super fun!!
