Cory has been working with my 12 year old. He taught her to sight read and is helping her widen her vocal range. She has made so much progress since she started working with him. We are very pleased. I highly recommend him!
Alexis K.
Cory is masterful at what he does. We love how he has catered his lessons to our son's level of experience. He has also inspired such confidence in our son's performances. Cory is a music talent we feel so fortunate to have found. Our 10-year old son always so excited for his lessons and his "homework." They definitely have a special musical connection that we hope continues to grow.

"Brad has been my daughter’s (age 13) improv teacher for a year. It has been such a great experience for her! Brad is patient, encouraging, and fun. His wit resonates so well with her and his example and prompting have not only helped her with improv, but also with how she responds and interacts with others in general. He communicates in a way that she understands and helps her to feel confident in expressing herself (no fear of repercussions or embarrassment) - easy-going and in a way that has helped her grow. Five plus plus stars!!"
