About Corey C.

Hello Students!
My name is Corey and I'm looking forward to teaching you, whether you're a beginner or advanced. I specialize in beginners and always enjoy helping students get to the next level. Many of my students have gone onto success as professional guitarists. (Panic at the Disco, The Higher etc).

I've spent most of my career touring internationally with dozens of big name acts (Temptations, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, The Contours, Mary Wells, The Shirelles, etc) playing some of the largest venues in the world.

I have been fortunate to study with some great teachers myself. I can promise that you will improve quickly and easily through my own personal system.

Learn online from anywhere or in my teaching studio.

Learning to play guitar doesn't have to be a chore. Come join me and remember...This is supposed to be fun!

This guy has it all. Professional player, expert instructor, great and humorous personality; he constantly instills motivation and convinces me that I can and will “get it”. Corey makes everything guitar fun and easy.

To play off what Chaz said, I'm a recovering trumpet player who initially tried my hand at the guitar about 5 years ago. Corey quickly figured out that my talent and background were better suited to the bass. There's been no turning back. Corey's a great teacher! He's always patient, he makes you work, and you enjoy the process. I'd give him more than 5 stars if I could!!

Corey is great. Always positive and happy. Great laughs. His system for teaching has gotten me from clumsy beginner to where I have the confidence to play with others and in front of an audience. He teaches relevant information that helps you know how to PLAY.

Before I met Corey, I was a recovering drummer, transitioned to Bass. All self taught. Little did i know, I was a ROOT NOTE player just getting by. After Just over a year being taught by Corey, my skills have advanced so drastically. It's a great experiance being taught by the BEST. I now have bands calling me to sub or wanting me to join. If you're looking to advance your chops, or maybe you're a beginner, Corey is THE ONE for you.
Thank You Corey, I appreciate all you do.

I am absolutely amazed how laughter, insight and fun amplifies the learning experience. Corey helped me start, begin and continue on this journey to become the musician that I want to be. Corey listens to his students and in turn teaches us to really listen.
Corey has a wealth of knowledge and experience in making and teaching the art of music. He is always encouraging his students to become more than they perceive themselves to be.
16+ years ago I went 'live' for the first time with Corey's encouragement.
I was absolutely petrified.
I was convinced that it was possible to urinate down both pant legs simultaneously. Clearly I was mistaken.
That first introduction to musical performance by Corey has lead to so much in my life.
Under Corey's instruction I have played many styles of music. This has always been done in an encouraging, empowering, engaging and fun environment.
Please look at the first sentence of this review.
His teaching methods lead to positive results.
Become the musician that you wish to be.

I’ve been taking lessons from Corey for three years. Corey has taken me from beginner to an a** kickin’ guitarist with the ego to match ha. Seriously though, it’s one thing to take lessons, it’s another to take them from someone who has consistently played in front of huge crowds around the nation and the world. Patient, dedicated and knowledgeable are the phases that come to mind with this instructor. Money very well spent.

If you want to become the best guitarist you can be and have fun with the experience, then you should take lessons from this guy. As you can see in his profile, he has toured with some of the great musicians. From Motown, to Blues to Country, to Jazz, Corey can teach you and have you doing things on the guitar you can only dream of doing. he can hook you up with other students to form a band too as he has in the past. You learn in a relaxed environment, learn at YOUR speed with no pressure.

Corey Catalano is definitely one of the best instructors and players in the entire Las Vegas valley. Great skills in being able to easily explain scales, arpeggios, and theory in a way that's easy and fun to learn. Not only is he a great musician, but a great person and friend as well. Highly recommend Corey to all guitar players whether you're a beginner or an advanced player that needs that extra push and inspiration to get to the next level. Corey can definitely help you reach your goals!

Corey is a former guitarist with the Temptations, and a walking encyclopedia of knowledge. I've worked with him many times over the last 20 years, and you won't find a better teacher for all levels. He's knowledgeable, patient, and has a wonderful sense of humor. I highly recommend him, as I have for the past 20 years!

This guy can help you be the guitarist you have always wanted to be, especially if you are just starting. He’s one of the most intuitive players I’ve ever heard and he is an amazing teacher. AND, he’s a riot.

Guitarists who tour with famous acts are the best of the best.
This doesn’t mean they can actually teach. In this case, Corey spent years touring with Motown and rock artists and built a large following of loyal students as well.

From all his years of playing, Corey developed a killer teaching method. And it works. His students learn to have a really good time with their music. He uses his outrageous sense of humor to make you feel comfortable and empowered, at every session.

It’s cool to learn from a 20 year old. There is also a lot to be said for learning from guys who have been playing a long time.

I am a music teacher (keyboard) as well. If you want a great experience learning to play guitar, Corey is your guy. You will have SO much fun!

How do I know this? I used to tour with him and I’ve known him for many years. If you get to study with Corey, you’ll be glad you did.
