"It was so exciting to have a student studying here in Wisconsin who came from Singapore! Not only did Sherina come from a different culture, but her passion for ethnomusicology and her expertise in dance as well as playing the gamelan was a wonderful addition to our piano studio.

Sherina was a great student --  she tackled really difficult repertoire, played with a lot of conviction, and was an excellent performer. She also wrote beautifully and really knew about the music she was playing.

I highly recommend her as a teacher!"
