My take on teaching music lessons are from a K-12 theory to help the student stay engaged. This is why I have half of my work with students be on popular pieces (Radio songs, musicals, movie soundtracks) with the other half of our work being on standard pieces that every student needs to be a successful musician. Both rep. types give me the opportunity to work on technique and style differences that no other format of the curriculum can have.

In addition, I have had lesson teaching technique classes with Floyd Cooley who is a world-renowned brass pedagogue.

About Corey S.

I am a student at DePaul University teaching lessons at a price significantly below the Chicago average. My lessons are good for students because it provides an opportunity to explore styles of music that the student is interested while also bringing those styles into the standard of Chicago horn playing. My primary teachers have all won jobs in major orchestras and I implement many of their teaching techniques into my own teaching.

I have teaching experience for 1 year as a private horn instructor. Nn addition, I was a chamber music faculty member at the Lawrence University Neighborhood Camp for horns. It was that experience where I discovered that I wanted to be an applied horn teacher.

Corey was super helpful in allowing my daughter to learn how to play French horn. She progressed at an exceptional rate and enjoys playing the horn due to the way he teaches with both "fun" books and classical pieces. She now receives high remarks on solo and ensemble ratings and by her band director.
