*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons with me are fairly laid-back. I use the Alfred's book series for piano students. For voice students, I tend to stick to genres the students are interested in learning and choose songs based on the student's abilities and levels and work up from there.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, music stands, music

*** Travel Equipment ***
None. I expect piano students to have a keyboard or piano at home. Voice students will not need any special equipment.

*** Specialties ***
I hold a degree in Jazz Vocal Studies and I also specialize in musical theatre.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Overall excellent We are very happy with Corinne's teaching style. My child is really enjoying her lessons and looks forward to learning more! October 29, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Corrine's great attitude My experience with Corinne has been super informative. She is a great listener and quickly adapts to my specific needs. I really enjoy her honesty and her ability to work on many different exercises in a short time. She has a lot of energy and I am always excited during the lessons and after I leave. She has a good head on her shoulders and I really love her style of teaching. I like that she challenges me and exposes me to new techniques, new music and keeps implementing those new lessons every time we worked together. I look forward to working with her and learning from her every time! :) October 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love Corinne Corinne has been working with my 15 year old son for the past few months and its been a great experience. She has helped him to understand his voice and set realistic and achievable goals. He comes home after each lesson feeling excited and positive about his progress (not an easy feat). She is also easy to communicate with and readily available to discuss things as needed. October 12, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing! Corinne really is everything any student needs in a piano teacher. She set me up with the right books to learn at a pace that works for me, and always answers any and all questions I have. The lessons are fun and informative and I couldn't imagine learning piano in a more productive way. A+ July 11, 2012
