Hi, I’m Cory!
I’ve taught over 1,000 students over the past 17 years in school systems all over USA!

Outside of teaching, I’m a music producer and I run a record label with my wife, and I’m the touring drummer for the band Tell Scarlet.

I’m sponsored by SJC Custom Drums, Heartbeat Cymbals and am an alumni of Georgia Southern University.

Fun fact: The character of Gus the Platypus from the Pete the Cat children’s book series was inspired by me!

Ages 5+ and special needs

Teaching since:

I offer a personalized experience to cater to each of my students’ needs and help them to get to the next level of their skill in drums — beginner, intermediate or advanced!

First, I like to consult with each of my students to identify their strengths and pinpoint areas of growth, then I build on those areas in each lesson until my students feel confident they’re ready to advance.

Above all, I aim to create a teaching environment that’s conducive to a positive learning experience.
