About Cory
So you want to play an instrument? Well I have taught for over 40 years and have developed special programs for you on piano, guitar, bass, voice and other instruments for you to learn. From easy beginner to the most advanced, I will help you to learn the songs you love! Whether we use the most modern technology in my professional recording studio or just some chords or perhaps learning to sight read something for a talent show, I can take you all the way to the highest performance level. Your goals are my goals.
I have studied with some of the most famous teachers in the world, including Charlie Parker's pianist Walter Bishop Jr. and Dizzy Gillespie's musical director Mike Longo, among many others.
I also have the experience of over 400 gigs a year to bring to your lesson. I have performed on piano, guitar and bass and voca
ls with famous stars and some really great bands which will help me answer many of your questions. I am currently still working, teaching and recording all the time. I also have a professional recording studio in my home which you can take full advantage of.

*** Lesson Details ***
I want you to have fun learning and can help you with understanding and memorizing your songs.
I focus on sight-reading, ear training (like jamming and playing blues) and theory. You get to choose the areas you would like to learn.
Once we have established the basics including melody and chords, we will pick songs you want to learn to play with your friends or just by yourself. We can use music books or go on YouTube to learn your songs.
I have helped students with auditions as well as performances. After only a few lessons you will hear and see things differently than ever before.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio comes complete with acoustic and electric keyboards, acoustic and electric guitars, electric bass and amps to play through, as well as professional microphones for recording. I use ProTools for recording which is used in every major studio around the world and it's loaded with great software for demos or mastering songs.

*** Specialties ***
I teach beginner, intermediate and advanced students.
I teach all styles of music including Classical, Jazz, and Rock/Pop/Blues.
I also teach songwriting, performing and recording in my ProTools studio.

Cory, is the Master Yoda of teaching music. That is truly evident in his patience, and honest desire to see you learn. Whether a beginner or an advanced musician like myself, Cory is exactly what you would hope to find in a great teacher. He is excellent in his skill and mastery of the art of music. That includes both his skill as a player, and in the science of music theory & harmony, When u see him play Piano, you will know instantly that he is a great master. Amazingly, he is also an awesome Guitarist & Bass Player. He has over 30 years of experience gigging on all 3, so there's no questioning his qualification to teach on all instruments. His seriousness as a true musician, and connoisseur of all forms of music & songwriting are especially beneficial to you. If you apply yourself, you will no doubt achieve your set goals, whatever they may be. Cory could be teaching at Juilliard or Berklee College of Music if he wanted to. That is not a joke. I went to Berklee, and so I am qualified to make that assertion. I learned a great deal studying with Cory, and that has translated into a priceless benefit for my own work.

About Patricia
I graduated from the University of Colorado with a degree in music education, K-12. Following I spent a year teaching piano and voice in England and then moved back to Colorado and opened a home studio. I have had the privilege to raise my daughter while working in the home as a music teacher. We later moved to Kentucky where I again started a home studio. I now have over 30 years of teaching experience, specializing in piano and voice lessons for beginners to advanced for students of all ages. I also have taught basic guitar.

My teaching style is very "laid back". I am a teacher who desires her students to learn and enjoy piano. The curriculum will be chosen individually for each student and if students are transferring from another teacher, they can use their current curriculum. Beginning students will learn the basics of piano an
d theory; intermediate students will advance their knowledge of playing and theory.

Students will be invited to participate in a variety of incentive programs throughout the year. We also preform 2-3 times a year at the yearly Formal Recital, Nursing home program, and our Christmas student program.

Hope to meet you soon. I would love to introduce you to the wonderful world of music!

My daughter has been taking lessons for 9 months and just did a 4 page duet with Mrs. 'G " at a recital. She is very energetic; she encourages and gives awards which the young kids respond to; sometimes her cat comes to listen. No pressure and the kids can pick some of the advance books of songs they like. We go in person but she is now open to Face Time lessons. She is also very flexible for sick days; snow days, and the typical crazy kid activity schedule. If you like personal, friendly postitive energy...Mrs. "G" is your teacher!

My Grandaughter, Lydia, is 8 years old and has been taking lessons from Mrs. "G"
since last September. Immediately, Lydia, felt welcome and comfortable. She has been in two recitals, and was in the Talent show at her school. We are all amazed at her proficiency at this early stage of learning. Her confidence in performing before an audience is all due to the way Mrs. "G" teaches. She makes the lessons fun and rewarding. I would recommend Brenda Ginther to any children interested in piano lessons. She is a joy to be with and Lydia loves her.

About Kim
Hi, my name is Kim but over the past 9 years of training performers in my academy (The Corcoran Academy of Fine Arts) I've become known to my "kids" as Mama L. Having been on stage performing for 50 years has given me the upper hand in how to train the next generation of performers! I love what I do and, judging by the success of my students, I'd say I'm very good at it! Please check out my photo gallery of past and present students. My students consistently score major roles in their school productions and I make sure I'm there to cheer them on!

My vocal training covers both classic voice and musical theatre. My acting lessons combine Adler, Meisner and my own observational technique. I have a sure fire method of preparation for auditions that, if followed completely, has never failed me or my students.

Why should you come
to me? Because I'll take you right where you are and grow your skills on YOUR terms! Your lessons are different than other student's lessons because they're designed to suit YOU! You can't help but catch my excitement during your lesson because we have so much fun! I'm looking forward to seeing you soon!

Ms.Lesso (or Momma L as we fondly call her) is an amazing instructor! She has so much experience in the performing arts and has a way with teaching that makes technique more understandable. She just really brings out your inner performer. I was already a fair singer before I joined her academy, but after being with her for less than a year, I had improved so much! Now, after +3 years with her, I nearly have a 4 octave range and we are working to get me to the full 4. She is just a great instructor and she makes you feel like part of her family.

Music has always been my passion. I started on the piano when I was 5 and I picked up the trumpet in elementary school. When I got my guitar at age 12 there was no looking back. In fact, that guitar is the same guitar that I play today and it has toured the country with me for the last four years.

My lessons are always fun and exciting and I encourage creativity in addition to technique and theory. Plus, I have a great sense of humor, so we'll be laughing a lot!

About Macy
I am currently in my final year of college at Kansas State University dual-majoring in Vocal Performance and Apparel & Textile Marketing with a minor in Business Administration. This May I will have a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance. I have been training in classical voice since 2008, and I have taught students in classical voice and musical theater since 2013.

Because of my extensive musical background, I am able to incorporate music theory and aural skills into my lessons. These skills help students become more well-rounded musicians and help them understand why they're learning what they're learning. I am also experienced in choosing the right literature for every voice.

Not only do I include music theory and aural skills in my lessons, I also teach my students to embrace the uniqueness of their voices. Instead of teaching st
udents to model other opera and musical theater singers, I strive to teach them to maximize and improve upon the voice they were given. Every voice is unique, and every voice is beautiful.
