Sherill is principal cellist of the Portland Opera orchestra in Portland, Oregon. She teaches cello at Linfield College, and has a large private studio with students of all ages. Her articles on Body Mapping for cellists have been published in the Oregon Cello Society’s quarterly journal. “The Bridge and Bow”.

Sherill came to Body Mapping through the Alexander Technique. After having back surgery for a ruptured disc in her 20s, the doctor recommended a second operation for another disc. Instead, she began her study of the Alexander Technique and Body Mapping, and has never had to have another operation. She is committed to helping other cellists play pain-free and fulfill their musical potential through the study of Body Mapping. Sherill is available for cello master classes and workshops, and welcomes private cello students to her studio.

Her principal teachers include Margaret Rowell, Aldo Parisot and George Neikrug.
