About Me

I am an experienced performer and educator. I'm from the USA and now pursuing my masters at Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris.

Education Experience:
Corey is a recent graduate from Oberlin College and Conservatory where he holds a BM in Viola Performance and a BA in Psychology. Currently, he is pursuing a Masters in Viola Performance at Le Conservatoire de Paris (CNSMDP) in Paris, France in the class of Pierre-Henri Xuereb. Teaching all ages since high school, Corey has been a chamber music coach for Credo Chamber Music (Chicago), a sectional coach for Northern Ohio Youth Orchestra, and conducted research on the History or French Viola Pedagogy at France's national library. Corey has performed throughout North America and Europe including recent performances with the International Contemporary Ensemble, members of Ensemble Intercontemporain, and was a featured performer at the Kennedy Center with his ensemble "Trio Ligatura." With a background in performance psychology, he has studied with Dr. Noa Kageyama (Juilliard's "Bulletproof Musician") and Dr. Jeffrey Huber (former US Olympic diving coach and IU performance psychologist). Corey believes in combining string pedagogical traditions with his research in performance psychology to not only develop reliable, healthy technique, but also teach students scientifically proven methods that aid in skill acquisition and developing a positive relationship with performance anxiety.

My son plays the viola and even though it seems very similar to the violin there are some technical differences. It was therefore important for him that he get instruction from a viola instructor proper. We've just had one lesson so far, but in that time Corey was able to identify the areas that my son needs to work on to improve his technique, as well as provide several very helpful exercises. My son is very excited for his next lesson and hopes to continue receiving instruction from Corey.
This is a conversation based class to supplement standard ESL courses. Through conversation, we will explore the nuances of the English language in formal and informal contexts in an effort to improve your accent, build vocabulary, and reinforce grammtical structure. This course is focused around the student's individual goals: preparing for an interview, orally practicing topics studied in ESL courses, or navigating the English vocabularly to fit comfortably in informal and formal contexts. This course can be taken via video chat or in person in Paris, France. It's recommended that the student use this course to supplement ESL classes or structured individual study. I am a native, American English speaker who holds a BA in Psychology and a BM in music performance. Currently, I'm a Master's student at Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et Danse de Paris. My studies in psychology focused on skill acquisition and performance psychology.

Fernando
Violin teacher specializing in the Suzuki method
“Talent grows through exercise…” - Shinichi Suzuki I have been giving violin lessons for 10 years, my working method is based on the Suzuki method, the mother tongue method. A child first learns to speak before learning to read and write. Language learning is done mainly by listening and mimicry. For music, it's the same, you must first master the basics of the instrument before knowing how to read notes and scores. Whatever the age of the student, beginner level or confirmed, I offer private lessons of violin and viola. No knowledge or musical notion is necessary beforehand, the theoretical achievements are made as and when the discovery of the instrument.

Professional violinist is giving lessons of violin online! Learn to play violin and enjoy every lesson! 😊
In this violin course you will learn a foundation in learning one of the most rewarding instruments in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Grip the bow, hold the violin, have the perfect hand position and enjoy playing the strings while learning how to read the notes, the violin rhythm and technique. Students will generally learn better if they feel a connection developing with their teacher, whether that’s through humour, showing care about their development, or making sure teacher devote time equally to all students when in a group. You will not regret. 😊

Ester
Private violin lessons, Music Theory, Technical and Musical Skills
My goal is to make people of all ages and levels learn not only playing an instrument but how can music help them in their everyday life. I am an Albanian violinist, with a Bachelor degree in Classical Music (Violin) and Musicologie in Sorbonne University. Over the years, my experiences with different youth and professional orchestras all around Europe have made me understand that music is important not only for professional musicians but also for everyone. I can teach in English or French and of course in my mother tongue Albanian.

Sibylle Denis
Private lessons of piano and violin by fun and attractive methods for children and young people!
Coming from a family of musicians, (mother concert pianist graduated from the National Conservatory of Music in Paris), I offer a new concept of musical education that makes this experience exciting and full of joy and happiness for children, young people and not so young! Students learn to listen, play, read, understand and enjoy all aspects of music. They also study performance, improvisation and composition, on piano and / or violin. Designed for children as well as young people or adults, my classes cultivate creativity as well as the joy of learning and sharing a wonderful experience!

Stanislawa
Violin lessons at your own pace. Learn to play with peace of mind.
Want to start or resume studying the violin? I am a violinist, more than 11 years ago in classical training, but I also work varieties with my students, like film music and others. I present a little bit of what you can expect from my course: - The course is based on the student's interest: I teach the violin technique so that the student can play the pieces he wants according to his level. During the lessons, we always work in two parts: the basics (how to play well and with a beautiful sound with specific notebooks) and learning the songs. I also learn the basics of music theory for those who do not know how to read sheet music. - I am a calm and flexible person. Our course will be totally in line with your objectives and your learning pace. - PRACTICAL DETAILS: Course in the 16th. Several slots possible in summer.

Laure
Private lessons of violin and solfege in Paris
Student in violin at CRR Rueil-Malmaison, where I am in a specialized cycle, I give violin lessons to young students in 1st, 2nd and 3rd cycles of conservatories. I can also take students from music schools. My goal is to give these students the taste of the violin and allow them to blossom with their instrument. I wish that the pleasure of the music trumps the possible blockings related to the difficulty of the instrument. I always systematically listen to an excerpt from a work, when possible, at the beginning of the class, to extend the student's musical culture and give him the desire to discover many different musics by himself. I propose a teaching of 30 minutes in the 1st cycle, and between 45 minutes and 1 hour according to the profiles from the 2nd cycle. I can also give reinforcement classes in music theory. I am at the CRR in Paris in orchestration, analysis and writing music, I finished the solfege two years ago and I conduct conducting, so I have a solid musical background, which allows me to help students.

Madeleine
Learn To Play the Violin, for Beginner's of All Ages
This class is for aspiring violin players. The focus is to learn from the very basics: bow hold, how to read music (if necessary), navigating the strings. You'll quickly learn a variety of techniques and beginner's pieces in a relaxed, fun environment. If you are an absolute beginner, this is not a problem at all.

Lara
Violin lessons and / or solfeggio for beginner or intermediate
Hello, I am a violinist, graduate of a conservatory prize in Tours. I propose courses of violin and / or solfeggio, as well for beginners as for more advanced levels. I am dynamic, and smiling, I make sure to lead my classes in a fun and stimulating way. I find it very important to put as quickly as possible the work of technique in application on pieces, to create a musicality and sensitivity, and also to have the pleasure of "loop" a piece. For solfeggio, same approach, working on both the weak points and the qualities to never demotivate! I adapt very well to students' demands regarding their goals, and I always listen. Feel free to contact me for more information ! See you soon !!

Tomasz
Violin lessons for children and adults in classic and improvisation.
I am a violinist, composer and music producer. At each stage of learning, I want to arouse the curiosity of the world of music and beautiful sounds in the student. In my lessons we educate not only the violin technique, but also the hearing, which is extremely important when playing this instrument.
