One of my favorite instruments to teach-- I often say that my specialty is convincing people that they should play double reed instruments! Generally seen as more of a challenge, double reeds like the oboe can be frustrating for beginners, but don't worry-- I can guide you through any troubles and help you learn this beautiful instrument.

About Cory

I am a classically trained performer with a Master's degree from London's Royal College of Music. I love finding each student's own learning style to tailor the experience, and I encourage my students to make their own decisions about musical expression (with plenty of guidance, of course!).

In my work as a performer I have played with orchestras all over the world, from the South London Sinfonia to the Bombay Chamber Orchestra. My musical life is full of variety, and I think that the experiences I've had as a musician make me a creative and thoughtful teacher.

I wouldn't call myself strict, but I do have high standards. I expect my students to put in the work at home, so that we can get the most out of lesson time, but I think that ...

Cory has been teaching my 11 year old son for only five lessons in Oboe and we couldn't be more than happier! Her calm and patient demeanor works well for my son. Cory is very knowledgeable and instructs my son without making it too overwhelming for him. Few weeks back, we had some company over and our son wanted to play a short piece for our guests. Everyone was so surprised that he only had two lessons and could play a melody (completely Cory's doing)! We feel lucky to have found a great instructor!

Cory is a credit to her industry!

Cory is the most professional, reliable, and patient piano instructor my granddaughters have had. She is not only teaching them the piano, but is providing them with an understanding of music itself. We are very fortunate to have Cory share her vast knowledge of music. She is a fine teacher and a wonderful person.

About Thomas

From a young age, I have been deeply involved in the musical community. I began studying piano when I was three, and throughout my education, I’ve learned from such accomplished instructors as Belle Mehus and Christopher Taylor. After receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Piano Performance from The University of Mary in North Dakota, I continue to study, teach, perform, and compose. I’ve also studied guitar and bass for nearly twenty years.  I love playing and teaching these instruments because of the strong correlations between the way they are tuned and played and the way western music theory works—as well as the pure enjoyment that comes from them!  Additionally, I have twenty years of education in oboe and other woodwind instruments. I was ...

I am a very shy person and doing this was a challenge for me. Thomas put me at ease, and we had a very good lesson! I learned a lot, and I can't wait to practice more on my own.

Thank you, Thomas!!

About Mitch

I'm a recent graduate of the Theatre Program at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. Before attending college, I was one of the top Oboe players in Michigan, earning I Division medals in every Solo and Ensemble competition that I was a part of. At Northwestern, I studied under Melissa Foster who has many students who have earned parts in Broadway shows. My ACT scores landed me a solid 33, with scores of at least 34 in each subject during different testing dates. I am very patient and love working with others. I feel confident in teaching others, and know how to work with students of all levels.
