About

Cheryl Mandracchia

Cheryl Mandracchia is an early childhood music educator and entertainer. Her life-long passion for music began as a young child playing the piano and singing church music with her family. The love and joy of music Cheryl experienced as a young child was the motivation for her to share that same love and joy with children in her teaching!​


After earning a bachelor of music degree in vocal performance, Cheryl began her music and movement journey by training as a Kindermusik educator, where she learned to teach with a child-centered approach. She then went on to create her own music curriculum which catered specifically to childcare and preschool centers by utilizing traditional American and multicultural songs and presenting them in a fun, playful way. Cheryl has taught music and movement classes in childcare centers for over 16 years now in the CT area and continues to teach in-person, as well as online family music and movement classes.


In addition to teaching early childhood music, Cheryl has over 20 years of performing experience in church worship leading, both vocally and instrumentally on piano and guitar. Cheryl spent some time coordinating and teaching children's library programs, as well as directing and teaching children's and youth church programs.


Cheryl writes many of her own original children's songs and continues to pursue opportunities to produce and share her music! She also offers live musical birthday party entertainment for children ages 1 to 5 in the CT, NY, NJ and MA area.
