February 1988

I have been a professional musician and educator in the Florida & Alabama panhandle for over 25 years. I cover a broad scope of ages (schoolage thru adult) and particular educational needs (hobby, scholarship, learning disabilities, etc ). I teach in classroom (group), private and online settings.

I have a unique teaching style to blends both Traditional note-reading and ear training methods with both Classical and Contemporary repertoire.

My students can expect to improve week to week in their violin technique and expand their repertoire every 2 weeks. I help each student unlock and release their own particular musical style and increase their abilities with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach violin students of all different ages and experience levels and enable them to sight read music and pursue both classical and/or contemporary excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

As a professional musician I have played many public venues over the past three decades including weddings, bands, for/with recording artists and Worship leaders such as Rita Springer and Lindell Cooley. I love to mentor students who want to become effective, dynamic worship leaders. My personal passion is contemporary music, and firmly believe that great classical technique is essential to any and every style.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

My two daughters began their violin instruction with Cori 11 years ago. Cori's creative and personalized approach gave them a great foundation in fundamentals of violin technique while keeping them inspired, motivated, and engaged. Cori is very organized and has developed a progressive teaching approach that really works for children. We loved that Cori taught both classical and fiddle styles. To this day, they continue to pursue both. After 3 years with Cori we moved away, but my girls continued to play both solo, duets, chamber music and full orchestra. My younger daughter was youth orchestra and high school concertmaster. Both girls won multiple college scholarships for their violin/viola playing. I attribute their continued success in music in large part to the foundation they got from Cori.

Cori is an amazing teacher. She taught violin to my oldest daughter. Cori pushed her to do her best and the best thing is my daughter loved it and Mrs Cori and would practice all the time as Cori made it fun. I highly recommend Cori to anyone looking for music lessons.

My daughter has been receiving instruction from Cori White for 2 years. She has enjoyed mastering the violin and the guidance and support. Cori is an excellent teacher and amazing role model for my daughter. I can't say enough about the positive influence she has had on Victoria. I'm grateful that Victoria has mastered an instrument for life!
