I take a very flexible and holistic approach to teaching, inviting the student to lead our studies as much as possible with the intention that we work as equals toward a common goal. No genre is off the table, but healthy/strong/simple technique is still of utmost importance. I also work very hard to inspire fun and effective practice strategies.
I love getting to know my students and their families, and exploring a broad range of practical topics related to learning the instrument and music in general. There are so many facets to a well-rounded music education that there's always something interesting to talk about.
My son has taken cello lessons from Corey for 6+ years. Corey is an amazing teacher and a very talented musician in his own right. His holistic style of teaching was a perfect fit for my son! He also has a gift for making lessons fun! We couldn't ask for a better teacher! Thank you Corey!
Cory is inspiring, creative and kind. He is great with kids and enthusiastic and positive.
Cory teaches my son (who is 13 years old) cello. Cory is fantastically talented as both a musician himself, as well as a teacher. He connected instantly with my son and makes cello lessons super productive AND super fun!
One of the most encouraging teachers ever, has so much patience, and explains everything incredibly well.
