Corinne is a friendly, caring, instructor and provides a stress-free learning environment. All styles, levels and ages are welcome. She teaches pop, musical theatre, classical, and jazz.

Corinne holds a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Vocal Studies from Michigan State University and enjoys teaching children and adults how to sing. All levels, styles, and ages are welcome. :)

Corinne was a vocal director for Rock and Ridicule, a rock and roll musical performed at the Acme Comedy Theatre in Hollywood. She also was the music director for Act I Children's Theatre in Sherman Oaks. Currently, Corinne is music directing an after school musical theatre class at Wilbur Elementary School in Tarzana.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons with me are fairly laid-back. I use the Alfred's book series for piano students. For voice students, I tend to stick to genres the students are interested in learning and choose songs based on the student's abilities and levels and work up from there.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, music stands, music

*** Travel Equipment ***
None. I expect piano students to have a keyboard or piano at home. Voice students will not need any special equipment.

*** Specialties ***
I hold a degree in Jazz Vocal Studies and I also specialize in musical theatre.

Corinne is amazing! I have been studying voice with her weekly for about two years now, and my musical theatre callback and booking rate has multiplied so much since before I started with her. She is so friendly and accommodating to my crazy, unreliable schedule. She always manages to fit me in when I need to see her for audition prep etc. She has also helped a lot on the business end of things with helping me create/work on my Book. She is wonderful at pinpointing what needs to be worked on most individually with her clients and letting that be an area of focus, while still making sure to give a full lesson with everything you need. For me, my weakness when I started with her was my mix. Now, two years later, at the last musical theatre audition I had (which I booked) I was complimented by the musical director about how nice my mix was. I definitely credit Corinne for that! I would highly recommend Corinne to singers of any level! Whether new and wanting to learn how to carry a tune, or professional singers looking for a good vocal workout, she is your lady!

Corinne is extremely thorough and is very patient with me. I'm brand new to music, and she has made me feel very comfortable. I know I'm on track because the habits and memorization techniques she teaches are very effective. Also playing duets with her are so fun!!!

Corrine's great attitude

My experience with Corinne has been super informative. She is a great listener and quickly adapts to my specific needs. I really enjoy her honesty and her ability to work on many different exercises in a short time. She has a lot of energy and I am always excited during the lessons and after I leave. She has a good head on her shoulders and I really love her style of teaching. I like that she challenges me and exposes me to new techniques, new music and keeps implementing those new lessons every time we worked together.

I look forward to working with her and learning from her every time! :)

Love Corinne

Corinne has been working with my 15 year old son for the past few months and its been a great experience. She has helped him to understand his voice and set realistic and achievable goals. He comes home after each lesson feeling excited and positive about his progress (not an easy feat). She is also easy to communicate with and readily available to discuss things as needed.

Corinne really is everything any student needs in a piano teacher. She set me up with the right books to learn at a pace that works for me, and always answers any and all questions I have. The lessons are fun and informative and I couldn't imagine learning piano in a more productive way. A+
