Teaching since:

Violinist Cody is excited to be actively teaching and performing in his hometown once again, having taught private students since 2012 and serving as a violin instructor at “Music for Kids,” a not-for-profit music school in Chicago. He has had extensive pedagogical training both at Baldwin Wallace

Conservatory (graduating Magna Cum Laude), where he received his Bachelor’s in violin performance studying under Dr. Julian Ross, and at DePaul School of Music in Chicago, receiving his Master’s in the same field of study under Professor Janet Sung.

Cody has a prolific performance career, working regularly with music of the early baroque through today’s newest compositions. He has performed with various chamber ensembles as well as Baldwin Wallace’s Symphony Orchestra and the DePaul Symphony. Cody performed the world premier of Eliza Brown’s “A Soundwalk with Resi” with Ensemble 20+ in collaboration with soprano Jessica Aszodi at the 2016 Ear Taxi Music Festival in Chicago. Performing in Ensemble 20+ under the direction of Michael Lewanski, Cody has performed several other world premieres including works of Christopher Wendell Jones and George Flynn. Cody’s career has led him to celtic and folk genres, country, rock, metal, and jazz. He has appeared on albums from Matt Otis and Christopher Bell, and enjoys delving into many styles of playing. As a soloist, Cody performs frequently in recital, collaborating with many different musicians and a range of instrumentations.

Cody is currently a member of the Western New York Chamber Orchestra and serves as Assistant Concertmaster of the Southern Tier Symphony as well as Concertmaster of the Warren Philharmonic Orchestra.

Cody is a wonderful teacher. He is easy going, patient and holds a vast tome of knowledge in his head. Yes, he has a masters in Bach, but don't think he is snooty, he used to play violin in a metal band.
