I had the honor of being instructed by Ms. Corey for two separate musical productions ("Beauty and the Beast" and "The Music Man"). Both experiences were very educational and she was able to create an impressive show out of minimal selection of resources. Ms. Corey has my highest recommendation.

Ms.Corey is the best choir teacher I have ever had! She knows how to have fun while still staying on task. She made me feel VERY comfortable whenever I was in her class and she made me feel very welcomed.... would totally recommend

Ms. Corey is such a positive teacher and encourages you every step of the way. Whether you are just starting singing, or whether you have been participating in it for many years, I promise you will learn something.

Out of all of my experiences in singing and choir, Ms. Corey has by far been the absolute best. She definitely knows her craft, and after working with her you will feel extremely improved (no matter where you currently stand). Since having her class I feel like I've become a stronger singer, in both style and technique, and I saw significant changes in my range. And don't try to sell her off as a stereotypical choir teacher: she's funny and incredibly kind to her students, and your progression is truly her personal interest. It may be strong to say, but to me, she's anyone's best option.

Thank you so much, Lisa!

I have had Lisa for two years and three classes. I have had her for beginning orchestra, beginning choir, and intermediate choir. She is very organized and explains mistakes and things we are not understanding very well. Best of all, she makes everything fun!

Never taken any kind of formal instruction on singing before, but Ms. Corey made me feel right at home.

Ms. Corey is probably the best teacher I've ever had. Not only does she teach music and the material, but she focuses on your hard points to help you improve. She can take anyone, skilled or not, and make them an incredibly talented individual. She has helped me further my path in the musical fields. Best. Teacher. Ever.
