About Me

I've been singing and dancing since I was 3 years old. I won my first songwriting competition in kindergarten. I played clarinet and piano in elementary school and junior high, and also sang in the chorus, In high school I had to choose between band and choir, so I chose choir. I sang solos in all the talent shows and was section leader for my high school advanced choir, and as a senior I was choir president. I was also accepted into G.A.T.E. (Gifted and Talented Education) choir, which was district wide.

I started my college career at Chapman University in Orange, California as a music major, and trained as an opera singer with Lynn Cole-Adcock, a professional opera singer of many years before teaching at Chapman. After a year of hard work mastering vocal technique and music theory I switched to theatre when I caught the Broadway bug. My first production was Hair!, directed by L.A. acting coach and professor Michael Nehring . Soon I had moved on to Shakespeare, in the summers I worked with Shakespeare Orange County, founded and directed by award winning producer Tom Bradac. By my senior year I was directing plays by Megan Terry and Clifford Odets, that year I won Best Director from my theatre department.

A minor in dance was required for theatre majors, I was lucky enough to take classes from Cyrus Parker-Jeanette and several other renowned professional dancers and choreographers. I earned my Theatre and Dance degree from Chapman University in 1998, and moved to New York City where I spent 10 years pursuing a performing arts career, both in theatre and as a singer/songwriter. I found minor professional success as a recording artist and studio musician, and performed in numerous off-off Broadway theatre productions while teaching theatre and dance to children at the Bronx Community Center and also private voice lessons in the recording studio I worked in.
I also did an internship at the famous jazz studio, Nola Recording on 57th Street in Manhattan where I worked with Grammy winning engineer Bill Moss. My off-off Broadway performances were for two grass roots yet successful theatre companies, Stone Soup and Beggars Group.

I just spent a year teaching music to my daughter's preschool class. I have also had 3 of my voice students audition for X Factor and The Voice. I love to pass on what I know and what I've learned to the next generation of artists and performers. My motto is: you only live once, make it count!

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is fun and energetic, lots of positive reinforcement but also high expectations to do your best and be disciplined, especially when it comes to practicing at home.

About Me

Growing up in Denver, I had a huge desire for singing and performing. By age 14, I was taking weekly singing & piano lessons, was acting constantly in local productions-many times getting the lead role.
Some of the productions I acted in: The Wizard of Oz (Dorothy), Camelot, Anything Goes (Reno Sweeney), How to Succeed in Business (Smitty), Carousel, Oklahoma, Les Miserables, and Oliver (Nancy.)
I received a 4-year scholarship to the Conservatory of Music in Stockton, CA. at the University of the Pacific. Upon graduation, I entered graduate school at the University of North Texas to continue my singing and piano studies, along with music theory, history, and musical video production.
Upon graduating UNT, I was chosen among 200 performing arts majors to be the featured soloist at the UNT commencement ceremonies. This led to an offer to tour Italy with the Rome Festival Orchestra. For the next two summers I performed in Copenhagen, Istanbul, Rome and Berlin with the Berlin Philharmonic.

About Me

As Abbe' Dimnet once said, "Children have to be educated, but they have also to be left to educate themselves."

I believe that learning comes by studying everything out in your own mind and heart. A teacher is there to provide information, but it is the student that must WORK or practice in order to truly understand what is being taught.

In my experience in learning the violin, I learned how to hold my bow, play vibrato, and perform by watching what my teacher did. Throughout my voice instruction, I learned that the voice is a very complex instrument. Much of vocal instruction has to be felt physically, discovered, and tried by the student during practice time, then I can teach what is being done correctly and what needs to change. It is by learning how to practice that a student can establish good habits and beautiful music created!

I grew up in Centennial, Colorado and started playing the violin in 4th grade. I developed an interest in singing in middle school, and started voice lessons when I was 16. I have been singing ever since!

I graduated from Brigham Young University-Idaho in April 2009, with a Bachelor degree in Music Science. I emphasized in vocal instruction.

I am happily married to my husband, Kevin, who is currently studying to be an optometrist.

About Me

I graduated from Middle Tennessee State University.
I have studied many types of music and education.

My favorite singing styles include: musical theatre, commercial, and opera.

Instrumental techniques are vastly arranged by what the student's goals are.
I love teaching a variety of styles. I believe in a diverse repertoire.

I plan on getting my Master's Degree in Performance and Choreography from CU Boulder.

*** Lesson Details ***
I start out with the parts/anatomy of the instrument. Once there is a fair understanding of the equipment being used the student can gradually respect and confide in the instrument.

I am 100% for the sake of efficiency. A performer's "Use" is all about how the musician utilizes the primary control. Proper technique is crucial to ensure the longevity of a musical career/endeavor

Every student in the world has a different learning style. Visual, auditory, kinesthetic, or some combination of all of them is taken into consideration with every, single circumstance.

The opportunity to expand the mind and body to music is certainly a wonderful, yet individual experience.

Corinne D. Denver, CO

Subjects Taught

Acting, Audition Prep, Broadway Singing, Child Acting, Choir, Classical Voice, Country Singing, Ear Training, Gospel Singing, Jazz Voice, Musical Theater, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Singing, Theater Acting, Vocal Training

About Me

Corinne D. specializes in healthy belting for musical theatre, pop, jazz, R&B, gospel and country styles of singing as well as classical and opera. She has been teaching privately since 2006, and spent two years as a student teacher for the Knoxville Children's Choirs, in her home state of Tennessee. Corinne holds a dual Master's in Opera and Musical Theatre Performance from Arizona State University, and a Bachelor's in Voice Performance with a minor in Theatre Performance from Middle Tennessee State University. Her healthy belt technique was developed through years of training in both classical and popular styles of singing with pedagogues such as David Jones, Lauren Sawyer, Anne Kopta, and Dr. Christine Isley-Farmer. Ms. D. spent the summer of 2011 studying opera and German Cabaret singing, as well as performing at the Middle Saxony Theatre in Freiberg, Germany. When studying with Corinne, singers develop classical technique as a foundation and then learn to modify the resonating space to create the desired sound for their style- leading to a popular sound without strain on the vocal cords. A strong performer, Corinne also has thorough training as an actor, and integrates acting into her lessons to turn out not simply singers, but well-rounded performers. Her musical theatre credits include: "Die Dreigroschenoper" (The Threepenny Opera) (Jenny), "Der kleine Horrorladen" (Little Shop of Horrors) (Chiffon), "The Last 5 Years" (Cathy), "Once Upon a Mattress" (Lady Larken), "Anything Goes!" (Erma), "Pippin" (Fastrada), "High School Musical" (Ms. Darbus) and "Nunsense!" (Sister Hubert). Opera credits include: "Vanessa" (Vanessa cover), "Hansel and Gretel" (Witch), "Die Zauberflote" (First Lady and Second Lady), "Suor Angelica" (La Zia Principessa and La Maestra della Novizie), and "Tartuffe" (Elmire). Corinne is also very passionate about working with modern composers and playwrights, and sang in the premiers of the following musicals and operas: "Some-thing from No-thing", "Scarlet Letter... The Musical", "Queen Victoria's Floating Garden of Secrets and Natural Wonders", and "Mayor Moon and the Storytelling Festival" - a children's musical that premiered in the US and then toured in Honduras as part of Middle Tennessee State University's Honduras Project.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons generally consist of 1/2 exercises and technique, and 1/2 repertoire, style and performance. Repertoire is chosen by the student and Corinne together- she will never assign a student a song they hate! Sheet music of repertoire will either be provided by Corinne or purchased by the student (most can be purchased online, downloaded and printed). Corinne generally works with accompaniment tracks for singer repertoire, so students can practice with accompaniment at home, and she can focus on listening to their singing during lessons. These can generally be purchased on Amazon.com and downloaded very cheaply. Corinne provides all singers with high quality Mp3 recordings of each lesson for easy practice of exercises and review.

*** Studio Equipment ***
High quality Mp3 recordings of each lesson included in fee!

*** Travel Equipment ***
Keyboard, high quality digital recorder (Zoom)

*** Specialties ***
Musical Theatre, Opera, Jazz, Pop, Country, Performing, Acting, Theory, Alexander Technique, healthy singing for all ages!

About Me

Taylor is a sophomore graduating from Red Rocks Community College in Spring 2015 with a History/General Education Associates Degree. He is a prospective student of the University of Northern Colorado, which has one of the best public music conservatories in the nation, with a declared B.M. in Composition. He has plans to attain his Master of Music in Conducting after receiving his Bachelor's.

Taylor has performed with many famous musicians and conductors; notable names include Mark Wood (founder of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra), Wes Kenney (lead conductor of the Colorado State University Symphony Orchestra), and Randy Sabien (famous jazz violinist). He studied Viola privately at the University of Denver under the instruction of champion fiddler and musical saw player Caroline McCaskey. Taylor currently studies music theory and piano privately with famous Ukrainian pianist and music historian Olga Dashevskaya, looking to expand his musical abilities.

Taylor has won many awards and scholarships with his writing skills and literary knowledge. Along with music, Taylor can teach various subjects including English, History, Theatre, Literature, Astronomy, Public Speaking, and Algebra. Although lessons follow a basic curriculum, the lesson is always about what the student desires to accomplish. For example, music students are ALWAYS allowed to pick their own performance repertoire to work on. Lessons are always focused on encouragement, assistance, and the self-success and determination of the student.

As of today, Taylor has over a quarter million hits on his arrangements and compositions. You can check out his music at: www.soundcloud.com/taylorrusso

"With lessons, *I try to keep it very cheap so that the student can afford the help they need. I believe in helping others when they are in need. Also, if you are outside the state of Colorado, I can do online classes (for MOST subjects; please inquire before purchasing lessons). I will not be able to do any in-home lessons outside 10 miles of Golden, as I have a busy schedule."

*I am willing to negotiate my already low prices occasionally, depending on certain factors; scheduling, type of lessons, etc. Please feel free to email me with any questions: tayloranthonyrusso@gmail.com
