Foley, AL

I have taught numerous cello and viola students over the years and encourage all my students to learn a second instrument and learn to read a different music clef after reaching proficiency in their primary instrument.

About Cori
I have been a professional musician and educator in the Florida & Alabama panhandle for over 25 years. I cover a broad scope of ages (schoolage thru adult) and particular educational needs (hobby, scholarship, learning disabilities, etc ). I teach in classroom (group), private and online settings.

I have a unique teaching style to blends both Traditional note-reading and ear training methods with both Classical and Contemporary repertoire.

My students can expect to improve week to week in their violin technique and expand their repertoire every 2 weeks. I help each student unlock and release their own particular musical style and increase their abilities with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach violin students of all different ages and experience levels and enable them to sight read music and pursue both classical and/
or contemporary excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

As a professional musician I have played many public venues over the past three decades including weddings, bands, for/with recording artists and Worship leaders such as Rita Springer and Lindell Cooley. I love to mentor students who want to become effective, dynamic worship leaders. My personal passion is contemporary music, and firmly believe that great classical technique is essential to any and every style.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

My two daughters began their violin instruction with Cori 11 years ago. Cori's creative and personalized approach gave them a great foundation in fundamentals of violin technique while keeping them inspired, motivated, and engaged. Cori is very organized and has developed a progressive teaching approach that really works for children. We loved that Cori taught both classical and fiddle styles. To this day, they continue to pursue both. After 3 years with Cori we moved away, but my girls continued to play both solo, duets, chamber music and full orchestra. My younger daughter was youth orchestra and high school concertmaster. Both girls won multiple college scholarships for their violin/viola playing. I attribute their continued success in music in large part to the foundation they got from Cori.

My teaching addresses modern challenges in cello playing, promotes an integral approach to learning, and supports practice as a result of Informed Intuition through comprehensive cognitive preparation. I have created a method Beyond the Octave which allows students the absolute freedom over the fingerboard by dealing with the extended positions and the advanced use of the thumb. Informed Intuition teaches musicians how to carve their own paths and find their voices on the cello through careful studies of the repertoire, music history, and theory, where the artistic approach to music is based on educated and intelligent choices based on a belief that music always starts from the heart; musician allow themselves to be vulnerable enough to follow their intuition, which should be rich, informed and educated. I'm teaching that there are no permanent solutions and recipes for performing but rather options to play music differently and coherently every time. I am a firm believer that ...

I had an eye opening experience taking lessons with mr. Gaydamovich. He is a fantastic teacher, who has an in depth knowledge and practical experience not only about the technique, but also about musicianship as a whole. As an incredibly well rounded and thoughtful coach, he has helped me overcome my hurdles in playing and guided me to become a better and more thoughtful musician as well as a human being.

At the start of my time with my students, depending on their skill level, I will take them through the physics of producing a clean and robust tone while also remaining relaxed and stress free. I focus on music theory as well as ear training to give my students a good musicianship foundation so that cello playing and all music endeavors are more accessible. I guide my students through a range of repertoire until I find what really clicks with the students particular desires and interests.

About Jeff
I am a classically trained cellist and a recent graduate from the Bob Cole Conservatory of music in Long Beach California. My teacher during this time was Dr David Garrett of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Dr, Marlin Owen of the Biola Conservatory of Music. I have been playing cello for fifteen years and have been playing in orchestras for the past ten. I was the principle cellist for the Irvine Young Concert Artists Orchestra for two years and was Assistant Principle cellist In the CUSLB symphony orchestra.
In addition to classical music my time at the Bob Cole conservatory allowed to play in various Jazz ensembles and allotted me some proficiency at improve and composition. I primarily teach classical music but I would very enthused to delve into a more contemporary practice as per the request of the student.
