Cheryl Seppala has given the gift of music to countless students in her organ store over her career. She has never lost that spark in her eye that has encouraged her students to stay with the lessons and enjoy the benefits of making music. She began teaching when she was a teenager at Ozzie’s Music in San Diego. In 1978, she and her husband opened a small retail store called the Organ Stop. There, she continued with group and individual lessons and selling the top-quality home organs such as Conn and Lowrey. Cheryl understands the dedication required to learn a musical instrument and hopes that her lessons and words of inspiration will result in her students working at it until they can enjoy and share the rewards of music making that have always been a big part of her own life!
