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


Kelsey is an incredible teacher who brings a wealth of knowledge and skill to her vocal instruction. As an adult student, Kelsey was supportive and encouraging in helping me build confidence and move through the vulnerability of singing. She helped me improve my technique and vocal range, which has greatly enhanced my enjoyment in singing. I am so grateful to Kelsey and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a vocal instructor.

Sarah is a very friendly, patient and encouraging instructor. I’m an adult student and have been enjoying my lessons to gently get back into more structured playing. I’ve also had lessons with Letizia. Both are highly capable and knowledgeable teachers!
