About Clarissa

I studied piano in Germany with Lola Poirier (a student of the famous Alfred Cortot) for 11 years, then with Phillip Evans in New York (professor at the Manhattan School of Music) and finally with world-renowned concert pianist Eugene Liszt at Carnegie-Mellon University, where I received my Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance with a Minor in Child Pedagogy.

For the past twenty eight years I have been teaching students of all levels and ages, incorporating some of my former teachers' methods with my own teaching style. I am passionate about awakening a hunger in each of my students for bringing and keeping music in their lives forever. I don't look at my students as children who play an instrument, but as young artists on the road to self-discovery and musical fulfillment! ...

Cory is an awesome teacher!

I've studied with Cory for 4 years now, and I just want everyone to know what a great teacher Cory is. I've not only developed immensely in my musical skill, but I've also noticed when I'm working with other musicians that my studies have really set me apart from my peers. Cory has an awesome recording studio with all the professional stuff you'd come to expect in a major studio, Protools HD, Logic 9, a great Mic Pre & Compressor, along with an awesome tube Mic for recording great vocals. I've known Cory for 14 years now, and he's a lot of fun to work with and learn from. I've also been to many of his gigs, and I can assure you he's an awesome performer. Glenn

Guitar
Cory taught my daughter to play guitar when no one else could!

Cory M is a multi-talented sweetheart of a man.
He’s been a great guitar teacher for my daughter, who has gained knowledge of sight reading and classical guitar while learning to play the folk/indie/classic rock she most enjoys. It’s to Cory’s credit that she’s stuck with these lessons through all the other activities she’s taken up and abandoned.
Cory is also a highly skilled performer and recording artist. I’ve enjoyed listening and dancing to his band playing old favorites and original compositions. He creates CDs of his music and records other artists in an impressive-looking home recording studio – and on top of all this, he’s a great cook and a kind-hearted, generous neighbor. We’re fortunate to have him as a member of our community.

I'm a big fan!

I'm a professional musician, and I entrusted both of my sons to Cory M, and have also recommended him widely to my friends......he gave both of my boys a solid foundation in piano, and when my second one chose guitar, the transition was very smooth. They each started when they were 6 - Cory is great with kids that age, and by the time they started in the school bands, they were well prepared to dive right in.
Cory is an actively working musician and composer, which makes it fun for the kids, and gives them a view on how the material they are studying functions in the real world. He also maintains a high quality home studio, opening up the opportunity for students to gain experience in that realm.
I'm a big fan.

I have been extremely fortunate to work with Joe over the past few years. On top of being one of the best people I have ever met in my life, he is also one of the best musicians I have ever met. Although his musical forte is drums, his knowledge of other instruments contributes to provide an extremely well-rounded instructional approach.

Patient, versatile, and encouraging!

Go with Joe!!!

Joe is awesome - I brought in some songs I wanted to learn and he made me sound like a rockstar! He really makes learning fun. ...and all this coming from a guy with no rhythm - seriously, he's a miracle-worker.

The studio is clean... he's always there on time...very professional... no complaints.

My new musical motto: IN JOE I TRUST!!!

Edwin is extremely patient and good natured. His knowledge of music and his ear for chords is amazing. I am a beginner and within a few lessons I am playing full songs from major bands. I couldn't be happier with Edwin and will be working with him for a long time.

I've always wanted to learn guitar and have had one lying around for awhile. I've been on youtube to try to learn some basics, but it was great to finally get some real feedback and pointers. Edwin was very patient and helped me get some basic rhythms down. Now I've got some specific stuff to work on til my next lesson.

The live 1-on-1 lessons with awesome TakeLessons teachers are a must if you are serious about learning properly!
