Two words to describe Cherisse and Emily’s masterclass after seeing them at ACM - inspiring and real. Whilst their sensational talent alone would no doubt hold an audience, it is really about the messages they send that allows everyone to genuinely take away something good, as their stories are humble and honest with real insight towards the good, the bad and the ugly experiences they have both endured to be who and where they are today. But it’s not just because of their honesty that makes their sessions so “real” - when you watch them play you will appreciate their genuine love for all things drums and unparalleled joy that will make you fall in love with music all over again. ~ Joe Yoshida - ACM Guildford Tutor
