Corinne discovered her love for teaching early in life. By the age of 14 she had 8 students, and she has made her living as a piano teacher ever since! In addition to private lessons, Corinne has taught music theory, composition, music appreciation, preschool music classes, choir, summer workshops, and group piano classes for beginners.
Corinne specializes in turning reluctant students into enthusiastic pianists, and fanning the flame for students who are already “hooked” on piano lessons. Students are encouraged to explore their interests in popular and sacred music, composition, and improvisation in addition to standard teaching repertoire. Over the years, her student roster has included those with ADHD, gifted and talented students, individuals on the autism spectrum, preschoolers, and adults from college students to retirees.
Corinne holds a B.A. in music from Texas Woman’s University, where she studied piano with Dr. Richard Shuster. She is an active member of Carrollton Music Teachers Association, and has served on their board of directors since 2013, including a stint as president (2017-2019).
In her free time, Corinne enjoys good coffee, meaningful conversation, trying new recipes, and listening to podcasts. She loves to play Classical repertoire at the piano, but her listening playlists are more likely to feature Catherine Russel, the Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, City Alight, and Indelible Grace. Corinne lives in Denton, Texas with her husband Paul and their two children.
