Mr. Chip Cheney

Welcome to my teacher page. I am from Heber, AZ. Music has always been a big part of my life. My father was my string orchestra teacher at school so I have grown up around music. The main instruments I play are viola and piano.  I have been playing the piano and viola for about twenty eight years. I enjoy performing with the EAC Symphony Orchestra and the Saguaro String Quartet. I attended college at EAC and then went to UofA for my Bachelors. I taught 6-8 orchestra in Tucson for a year and then went to BYU and completed my Master's Program. I am thrilled to be a part of Safford Unified School District. I am looking forward to another great year with the talented and dedicated orchestra students in Safford!
