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


At first I thought my daughter Alana might be too tired after a whole day of school for private lessons, but George always goes above and beyond in all of our lessons. George is truly remarkable, it would be great to let other people know how amazing he is. 🙂

Chersea is not only an extremely talented and energetic vocal and music teacher, she is so admirably devoted to identifying and supporting her students’ to pursue their own particular passions. We are so grateful for the years during which our daughter has learned from and worked with her.

My son has been with PMM since it began and every single lesson has been an amazing experience for him. He has learned so much, not just musically, but also to become a more confident, well-rounded individual. Chersea and PMM and a delight to work with for both students and their families. Thank you so much for all the gifts you share!!!
