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 For more information please visit CORINNSPRINGER.com **please do not ask about free lessons :) Student Reviews: 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. Corinn is a wonderful teacher both of technique and confidence boosting. I hope to be able to continue my lessons for the foreseeable future. I am very impressed by FirstTutors. ~Tim Rating: 5/5 Comments: My daughter couldn't be happier that we found Corinn - she says she wishes she could have a lesson everyday. In just 3 short weeks we have seen a major improvement in her piano playing. She has been positive, professional and helpful and we would recommend her to anyone. ~Staci Rating: 5/5 Comments: Corinn is great, even if you're an absolute beginner like me you'll learn so much by taking lessons with Corinn (& you'll have fun too!) ~Ashton Rating: 5/5 Comments: Absolutely fabulous! ~Ekaterina Rating: 5/5 Comments: Corinn is an excellent teacher.

Singing Lessons

Corinn is a lot fun to work with. She is always full of energy and enthusiasm which shows how much she enjoys what she does. I have taken several singing lessons with her and always walked away having learned something new. If you are looking for someone who is not only good at what they teach, but can also do it very well themselves, Corinn is the person to go to. She's amazing!~Dio

At various times, Corinn has worked with all five of our children for both voice and piano lessons. Beyond her clear musical expertise (both theory and performance), Corinn is one of those rare individuals who works extremely well with both beginner young children (pre-Kindergarten onward) and high school/college students taking advanced ABRSM exams or trying out for Julliard programs. Most importantly, Corinn knows how to make the lessons fun so that the kids are happy to have them, whether the lessons are in person at our home or handled remotely via Facetime, etc. Our family has gotten excellent value from working with Corinn, and we would strongly recommend her to anyone thinking about voice or piano lessons for their family member(s).

Corinn is an AMAZING teacher. She is an extremely talented vocalist and pianist, and I’m lucky to have been taking piano and vocal lessons from her for the past year. I hope to continue taking lessons for as long as I can!

Piano Lessons

Corinn has been a joy to work with. The first lesson went as expected and we are looking forward to the second lesson we have scheduled. I am so happy with the quality of instructor and individual we have found.

Piano Lessons

Corinn has taught my two daughters (13 & 15) piano and voice for the past 3 years. She is the best teacher we have had and we are thrilled that she has moved with us, by sheer luck, from London to NJ! She is extremely reliable and conscientious and is a talented and patient teacher who challenges my girls as individuals and has helped improve their skills tremendously. They look forward to their lessons with Corinn and feel as very comfortable with her. She is a very talented singer and pianist and is passing on her love of music to our daughters. We feel very lucky to have her influence in their lives.
