Introduction: I am an experienced NYC based private voice and piano teacher, performer, and actor. I'm also a Director at International Master’s Academy of Opera as well as the lead singer for the Silver Starlite Orchestra. I moved back to NYC about 3 years ago after performing and teaching in London for over 3 years (as well as studying with Sheila Barnes at Cambridge University). Before I hopped across the pond to London, I held a studio in NJ/NYC for 8 years, was the sole music teacher at Professional Arts Academy and worked at Distinguished Concerts International NY - organizing large choirs as well as performing with them at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. I have a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education (certified to teach K-12 music in NJ), as well as a Master of Music in Music Performance; with a vocal concentration in both degrees. I have been singing and performing all over the world for over a decade (including opera, musicals, pop, jazz, EDM) and playing piano since I was a child. Living right outside or inside New York City my entire life and performing around the US, all over Europe, and parts of Asia, I have studied and worked with some of the finest musicians, teachers, conductors, coaches and directors in the business. Some of the local halls I have soloed in include Carnegie Hall, David Geffen Hall, Lincoln Center, Walt Whitman Theatre, Miller Outdoor Theatre and many more. I have also acted and sung in 2 independent feature films: Cardio with Ian Todary Productions, NYC (Amazon Prime 2021) and Balls with Parallaxe Films (London, UK; Zurich, SUI). Balls, a film loosely based on my experiences as a teacher/performer, uses the power of music to help a man struggling with Tourette’s. It was met with great acclaim at the Geneva International Film Festival in 2019 and won “best romance” from New York International Film Awards in 2020 and “best feature film” from London Rolling Film Festival in 2021.
I have been teaching voice and piano for over 14 years to various levels of musicians. Whether you are looking to improve your singing (and/or speaking voice), learning to play piano for fun or are looking for very serious instruction to be considered for colleges, competitions or summer programs; I can help. I teach all ages: 4 - adult for piano and 7 - adult for singing. Both my voice and piano students have placed in competitions, been accepted into prestigious music programs such as LaGuardia High School of Music, elite choirs, and shows as well as taking exams with ABRSM, NYSSMA and Trinity. I have trained my voice students for auditions for roles on Broadway, the West End, agents, commercials, Master's programs in voice, etc... For singing in different languages I can coach English, German, French, Italian, and Latin. I have also studied with acting teachers and worked with acting directors for the stage, movies and commercials and can coach techniques for onscreen and stage acting.
I have a very individualized approach that focuses on each student's strengths and areas for improvement in a highly supportive and encouraging environment at my studio in NYC (Murray Hill) or on FaceTime or Zoom.
At the conclusion of each lesson I give the student weekly assignments (that coincides to what their weekly schedule is like) and give the parents/guardians feedback about the lesson.
Piano - $67/hour
Voice - $80/hour
Traveling to my studio in Murray Hill - 7 minute walk from Grand Central Station. Trains closest to me - 4, 5, 6, 7, S, Buses - M34, M15-SBS, M101, M102, M103, M42, Q32

Rating: 5/5 Comments: Corinn is an amazing teacher. She's friendly, upbeat and knows her stuff. I haven't taken private lessons before and in just 2 weeks the things I've learned from her have made an impact on my voice. I'm already working on a new song, something I never thought I would be doing so early on. The best part though is the way I feel after the classes. Even if I've had a long day at work and it's raining outside, when I leave Corinn's lessons, I literally feel like everything is ok. I spent 10 years away from music and choosing to go back and take these lessons for myself has been one of the best decisions I've made. I'd recommend Corinn to anyone - adults and kids, beginners and professionals. ~Amita
Rating: 5/5 Comments: I have had only two lessons so far and am really enjoying learning my music so that I can sing with confidence at my next concert.
