About Cherie

Compassionate. Creative. Visionary.

Play Video

Cherie and her husband Garry live in Winnipeg, Canada. They have 3 grown children, one son-in-love and 2 precious grandchildren.

Cherie is a seasoned worship leader, music teacher and Bible teacher whose greatest passion is to make Jesus known and adored. Out of this passion has come a desire to raise up and equip a generation of singers and worship leaders—both young and old—to confidently sing of His great worth. It is her great delight to help singers find the voice that God has uniquely gifted to them!

Although Cherie had led worship for many years, she became increasingly discouraged and even ashamed when she listened to recordings of her live worship services—she knew that her voice did not match what the Lord had branded upon her heart! Some of her notes were off pitch, her vibrato was excessive, and the lower notes of her songs lacked power. Although she practised hard on her own to try to fix the problems, she saw little to no improvement.

Hope began to rise when Cherie was introduced to Charmaine Brown’s Worship Vocalist vocal courses. Over time and with diligent work, a new understanding and mindset began to emerge… the old habits began to be replaced by a new sound, fresh confidence, and a whole new level of freedom in her worship leading!

With new courage and vision, Cherie went on to become a student in the Worship Vocalist Certified Coach Training Program. She was honoured to graduate as the first Worship Vocalist Certified Coach in March 2022, and it is now her privilege to share that same hope and treasury of skills that have been given to her.

See her in action in this “Great Things” song tutorial and this vocal workout.

When she’s not coaching, Cherie enjoys hospitality, laughter, personal connection with others, a great cup of coffee and prayer journaling.

Frequently Asked Questions

Once you purchase your lesson, you’ll receive a lesson-specific Zoom link. You’ll click that link at the time of your lesson and voila—you’ll be connected with an amazing coach who is ready and eager to help you with all your vocal struggles! Although in-person lessons are awesome, it’s not necessary to be in the same room to have a great lesson! As long as you have decent internet speed and a device to take your lesson with, your coach will easily be able to diagnose your voice and take you through a personalized workout that will take your voice to the next level!

Great question! Although it’s totally possible to improve your voice by training solely on your own (especially with Worship Vocalist courses!), getting one-on-one coaching will exponentially speed up your progress as you pursue greater vocal skill! It can be challenging to know if your vocal technique is truly correct… singing is very subjective, and we hear our own voice differently than others do—so it’s helpful to get an honest, professional opinion on your singing and be given personalized strategies to help you get to the next level! 

In each session, you’ll go through a personalized vocal warmup and workout with a Worship Vocalist Certified Coach, touching on specific vocal techniques you’re having trouble with, as well as work on a worship song of your choice.

No—Charmaine doesn’t offer private lessons, but she has trained and hand-picked coaches who are highly competent and skilled at coaching singers. We are confident that they can help get your voice to the next level!

As many as you want! Some singers just want to take a lesson every once in a while; others want to take regular weekly, bi-weekly or monthly lessons. You can even take multiple lessons in the same week if you are preparing for something specific and want extra help! 

Although we recommend purchasing a subscription to our on-demand library of video and audio lessons to enhance your vocal training (as the exercises that your coach will be using are Worship Vocalist techniques!), it is not a requirement in order to book lessons with a Worship Vocalist Certified Coach. 

We recommend waiting until your child is at least 10 years old to take online voice lessons.

No—your Worship Vocalist subscription does not include private lessons. Private lessons are purchased at extra cost if you want to get personalized vocal coaching.

No problem! Our lesson scheduling tool will show you what times are available in your time zone. If you can’t find any times that work for you with any of our coaches, please contact us at [email protected] and we will do our best to get a lesson booked in for you!

We use Calendly for our lesson scheduling, and you will purchase the lesson at the time of booking, right on Calendly’s secure site. Payments are made via credit card and processed by Stripe—the same world-class payment processor we use for our online store.

If you need to make a change to a scheduled lesson, you’re able to reschedule easily via the links in your email confirmations, up to 24 hours before your lesson time.

The lesson confirmation emails you receive each contain a link to reschedule the lesson if needed—you will easily be able to see the coach’s available time in their calendar and choose a different time that works!

PLEASE NOTE: any lesson rescheduled within 24 hours of your lesson time will be forfeited. Thanks for your understanding!

We require 24 hours’ notice to cancel or reschedule a lesson.  Any lesson cancelled or rescheduled within 24 hours is forfeited and will not be refunded. Thanks for your understanding!

Pretty much all modern desktop / laptop computers, tablets and mobile devices can run Zoom (check their site for system requirements). You’ll need speakers or headphones, as well as a microphone (built-in, USB plug-in, or wireless Bluetooth) and a webcam (built-in, USB plug-in, etc.).

Online private voice lessons do require high-speed, reliable internet. Please check your internet speed at Generally, an upload speed of at least 10 MB/s and a download speed of at least 50 MB/s is best for online lessons (but the faster the better!).

Great question! You can get feedback from head vocal coach Charmaine Brown at any time by purchasing an Analyze My Voice (submit a video of yourself singing a worship song) or a course Checkpoint (submit a video of yourself singing Worship Vocalist exercises). But although written feedback is awesome—and it’s often enough to point you in the right direction—there’s nothing like one-on-one coaching to exponentially speed up your vocal progress!

Purchased vocal lessons are non-refundable and expire one year from purchase.

Not at this time—lessons are purchased directly through our scheduling tool Calendly, so even though we provide gift certificates in our online store, they don’t apply to lessons.
