Experienced beatboxer of over 10 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn the foundations of beatboxing as well as more advanced techniques and styles. I specialize in vocal percussion and also have microphones and amps available to use during lessons.

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 also am an acting coach; 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 also 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 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!
