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 and we can work together to find a plan of action that best suits your needs, whether that be sight reading, vocal technique, or anything else!
Many professional a cappella groups hire me to sing with them and beatbox for them as a ringer. These performances are typically throughout the continental United States and Canada.

I've had a number of lessons with Cory and it's been an awesome experience! I've learned a lot from him and been able to work on so many skills. He's very patient and personable.
Cory is helpful and encouraging, and incredibly knowledgeable in his line of work.
Very knowledgeable and professional, would highly recommend
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!Show More
