Sylvia is calm and supportive. I am just restarting my lessons and it can be frustrating. Sylvia is patient and stays with my strengths, while encouraging me to work on the areas that are difficult. Really appreciate her style, so far.

Pianists & other Musicians continue exploring here:
A professional music venue hosts spring and fall recitals; Instruction from a paid performer; I hold a Master of Music degree and an Ohio Teaching Certificate!
*** Lesson Details ***
As one of my students, you can come to expect a friendly welcome at the beginning of the lesson and then throughout expect our main goal to be helping you make your best music possible. I possess a wealth of knowledge
and skill collected from decades of practice, master classes, winning competitions, earning degrees and performing both in bands and as a solo artist.
I am relaxed and happy, disciplined and product-oriented while at the same time understanding the difference between practicing for improvement and statically repeating the same exercise or passage over and over. We want to make the most of our time during the lesson and your practice sessions by focusing on achieving your goals quickly.

I have been taking lessons with Corbett for over 8 years. He's very knowledgeable about what he teaches, and conveys his lessons clearly so no matter what age I was, I knew how to do what we were going over. He's friendly and easy to get along with, and I've never felt that I wasn't learning something or getting the best lesson with him. Corbett's a great choice for a teacher for anyone from beginner to advanced.

My daughter has been taking cello lesson with Corby for approximately 4 years.
Corby is very knowledgeable and inspiring. My daughter has become more confident in her school orchestra program with the help that she has received from Corby.

Super knowledgeable, cool, frustratingly skilled. Bring him something cool and he'll figure it out in a few minutes as you then struggle for a month to get it. Been going to see him nearly 10 years or so and is worth every penny.
