Amazing teacher! Cory is a wonderful teacher. My daughter has learned so much from him. He's been teaching her violin for a while and she has learned a lot from him. He has patience with kids and also makes it fun and encouraging.
Thank you Cory! I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to learn.

Music Theory
Cory is an awesome teacher!

I've studied with Cory for 4 years now, and I just want everyone to know what a great teacher Cory is. I've not only developed immensely in my musical skill, but I've also noticed when I'm working with other musicians that my studies have really set me apart from my peers. Cory has an awesome recording studio with all the professional stuff you'd come to expect in a major studio, Protools HD, Logic 9, a great Mic Pre & Compressor, along with an awesome tube Mic for recording great vocals. I've known Cory for 14 years now, and he's a lot of fun to work with and learn from. I've also been to many of his gigs, and I can assure you he's an awesome performer. Glenn

Guitar
Cory taught my daughter to play guitar when no one else could!

Cory M is a multi-talented sweetheart of a man.
He’s been a great guitar teacher for my daughter, who has gained knowledge of sight reading and classical guitar while learning to play the folk/indie/classic rock she most enjoys. It’s to Cory’s credit that she’s stuck with these lessons through all the other activities she’s taken up and abandoned.
Cory is also a highly skilled performer and recording artist. I’ve enjoyed listening and dancing to his band playing old favorites and original compositions. He creates CDs of his music and records other artists in an impressive-looking home recording studio – and on top of all this, he’s a great cook and a kind-hearted, generous neighbor. We’re fortunate to have him as a member of our community.

About Lauren Elizabeth

Singing is my passion! I started singing at 6 years old and never stopped performing in front of crowds.

I always leave my lesson in a good mood!

I've taken voice lessons with Lauren for over a year now and have really seen an improvement in my voice. I've taken voice lessons for the past 10+ years and Lauren's approach to teaching is one of the best I've experienced. She explains exercises and techniques in a way that makes sense and if I don't understand it the first time she finds another way to explain it visually or metaphorically. Lauren adapts the lesson to what I need each week. She knows which exercises to do with me to prepare my voice for the song I'm singing. She is able to sense when my voice needs a rest or when she can push me to work harder. I get to choose the songs I sing, but Lauren also helps me find songs or decide which song is the best challenge for me. I highly recommend Lauren as a teacher!

About Teri

I teach students of all ages in a relaxed, encouraging, and fun way- but with the structure many beginners need to reach their goals and with the background of a professional singer!

Teri is a premier vocal coach. When I first came to her, I didn't know what I was doing; I knew I had some talent, but didn't know how to hone it. Teri was just the person I needed. A vocalist herself from the school of hard knocks, Teri's real life artist experiences give her unique insights into what makes a vocalist tick and how to discover and nurture one's artistry. She has an excellent ear and is a phenomenal teacher. Teri has an upbeat style; always positive and encouraging, but also honest and straightforward. Teri tells it like it is out of love for the art form and her students. She's a vocal coach extraordinaire, and I highly recommend her.

When I first started lessons with Teri, I could barely be heard and had absolutely no technical skill, or even really the confidence to sing. I now am able to use the techniques Teri has taught me and have completely completely made over my sound as well as my confidence! I absolutely would recommend Teri as a voice teacher; she has taught me so much and always with stellar enthusiasm and expertise. I look forward to continuing lessons with her in the future!

Dylan L. Los Angeles, CA

I have been singing and performing music since I was young, and I studied classical and contemporary voice for years with Soprano Marina De Ratmiroff and continue to study as well. I have been helping students find their voices for the past few years using a series of diverse vocal training exercises, helping them widen their range and boost their confidence! We work on contemporary tunes that inspire their vocal growth, but my main focus is for singers to write and perform their own music. I also supplement singers with piano study as well, if a piano is available for them to practice with at home. For beginners, singing is very vulnerable and even scary! I create a fun and safe environment for students to study, grow, and explore their vocal potential.

About Dylan

Hello future students and parental units! It is with great passion that I express my love of teaching and my musical journey with you. I grew up in a very musical family in North Carolina. We would travel to many "Old-Time" music festivals, and I would sing and dance to my parents' music, performing often with them. I soon began classical piano lessons when I was six years old. I went to college for music while teaching piano, voice, and songwriting at a local K-8 school and started my own mobile lesson business. I continue to learn new voice and piano techniques today. I work hard to create a safe environment for students to explore their highest music potential through technique, daily practice, and creativity, and I give parents the tools to aid in their children's musical ...

Dylan is an entity unto herself; a most gentle soul, incredibly (and beyond) creative, original, mindful, and generous. Never will you meet a brighter ray of sunshine or a more genuine spirit.

I always tell Joanna Rose to follow her own lead, to be uniquely wonderful, to follow no, one, individual...with the exception of Dylan.
I find myself telling her to look to her mentor, emulate and be encouraged by her, because her mentor will never lead her astray...In no way does Dylan lead her students on any path other than their own.

It's a powerful individual that can take someone's talents and help them use those gifts to form their own unique "package" to present to the world.

Joanna Rose is forever changed by her connection with Dylan. They met when Joanna was a little First Grader, who was hesitant, but anxious to share her talents with the world! Dylan cradled Joanna Rose in loving kindness, encouraging her to sing, write, and play, POWERFULLY. From deep within her heart, Dylan nurtures, so very naturally.

Without Dylan's entrance onto the stage of Joanna Rose's life, Joanna would never have found the part of herself that truly has become her "self."

I cannot, as Joanna Rose's mother, have dreamed of more. Thank you Dylan~ It has been a magical eight years...

We had the wonderful opportunity to work w/ Dylan in our home for 2 years. Both of my daughters loved working w/ her & flourished under her tutelage. She is an extremely gifted & dedicated young lady that was able to find the strengths of both of my girls & expand upon them. They studied voice, composition, & classical piano w/ Dylan & I couldn't have been happier w/ how they progressed. We certainly miss Dylan & feel very fortunate in being able to work w/ her.

Dylan is a magnificent musician in her own right, but she also shines in being able to connect with children of all ages and adjust her teaching styles appropriately. She is a literal muse to her students, who begin writing their own music in no time. She provides them with unwavering support and courage to allow them to blossom into their own.
