— Tracy Wilson, Director, Berkshire Music School

I studied with Sherri James Buxton for several years at the Berkshire Music School, participating in her Adult Cabaret classes and performing with her “Cabaret-to-Go” troupe. .She has been my most supportive mentor, and her valuable critiques have helped me to develop the skills I needed to begin doing my own solo cabaret shows. She really roots for her students’ success, and she has given me the confidence I needed to conquer my fears and take hold of the stage! She continues to be supportive of my growth as a performer, and I am deeply indebted to her.

Thanks, Sherri, you are the best!

— Lisa Kantor, Elle Kay Cabaret

Sherri’s command as both singer and teacher has vastly improved my vocal technique; her warmth has given me emotional support and confidence; her spirit makes her a joy to work with. Head, heart, spirit–Sherri’s the real deal.

— Mary Jo Maichack, MaichackArts

Working with Sherri has been rewarding beyond all expectations – and FUN!. She naturally uses metaphor and teaches vocal anatomy to remarkably advance technique and sound. Students often ask, “Was that really me? Did I do that?!” If you’ve ever dreamed of singing well, not to mention “performing,” you owe it to yourself to sing with Sherri.

— Dr. Jonathan Kramer

If you like to sing, this is the place!
