Sandra Cross


Sandra Cross holds a Master of Music in Vocal Performance from the Eastman School of Music located in Rochester, New York. Her professional credits include: performing with the DuPage Opera Theatre, Bach & Beyond, Lyric Opera of Chicago Chorus, Grant Park Chorus and the Chicago Symphony Chorus.  At Sherwood, she gives voice lessons and teaches Music Together. As a voice teacher, she encourages her students to explore and cultivate their voices. She enjoys teaching and looks forward to helping her students achieve their vocal potential.

Sandra became a Registered Music Together teacher in the summer of 2007. She loves teaching Music Together and observing her students experience the joy of making music. The babies first move to a beat, then coo on pitch and shake maracas, while the four year olds sing songs, play with instruments and dance around the room. It is definitely a never ending thrill for her to watch young children grow and experience music in their own individual way.
