About Cory H.

I am a professional singer, beatboxer, audio engineer, and music director who specializes in contemporary a cappella music! I graduated from the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College with a Bachelor of Arts in vocal music. I’m also an experienced actor; I can help build confidence in your performances as well as help you feel more comfortable speaking in front of people.

I perform often with a variety of musicians at all levels - I've performed with school choirs, community choirs, The Maccabeats, Josh Groban, and more. I have also performed at many well-known venues such as the Nikon at Jones Beach, Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, The White House, and more. I travel both nationally and internationally to perform and often find myself singing with the communities I travel to. I have judged singing competitions, given masterclasses to a variety of singing groups, and taught classes at music festivals.

As a teacher I want you to succeed! I am always happy to discuss your goals and aspirations as we work together to find a plan of action that best suits your needs, whether that be sight reading, vocal technique, or anything else!

Cory is a great teacher! He is very patient, kind and friendly. His lessons are effective, engaging and fun. My son looks forward to seeing Cory once a week. If he had his way, he would have a lesson with Cory every day.

Cory was kind and outstandingly patient with my 5-year-old son. I love the way he used repetition, provided memory tricks, and encouraged frequent participation to really sink home the lessons. In tandem with beatboxing techniques, Cory also introduced my little guy to percussion instruments and reviewed letters of the alphabet. My son really enjoyed himself, and has been playing with his new beatbox skills all day. A truly first class lesson experience - we can't wait for the next one!

Cory is a really kind, awesome guy and i really think that he will help me become a really good singer over lots of practice with him and i feel that he really encourages people of many ages to become a better singer.

Cory is very patient, kind, and accommodating to your learning style. Through visualization (amongst other techniques), Cory has helped me become a much more confident singer in a short period of time.

Cory is fantastic! He is polite and very professional. His lesson was so efficiently prepared and he kept my active 5 year old son totally engaged for the entire session. We look forward to our future appointments and feel confident that this is money well spent.

Cory is terrific! Knowledgable, enthusiastic, and very patient in working with my super limited knowledge. He was always willing to rephrase or help me visualize something when I wasn’t getting it. A few lessons with him have given me the confidence and preparation I need to finally go through with an audition!
