Corinn is a highly experienced private voice and piano teacher who teaches in Jersey City, NJ; just outside of Manhattan. After 7 years of intensive study, she obtained a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education (certified to teach K-12 music in NJ) from The College of New Jersey - cum laude, as well as a Master of Music in Music Performance from Brooklyn College Conservatory - summa cum laude. After holding a studio in NJ/NYC for over 7 years, she skipped across the pond and started a studio in London, UK where she taught and performed (as well as studied with with Sheila Barnes - Cambridge University) for 3 years. As of 2018, Corinn made her way back home to NJ/NYC where she is continues to grow her studio and perform.
Both voice and piano students of Corinn's studio have placed in competitions, been accepted into prestigious music programs, schools for the arts, choirs, and shows as well as having completed grades in ABRSM and Trinity exams. She has trained her voice students for auditions for roles on Broadway, the West End, agents, commercials, etc... For singing in different languages she coaches English, German, French, Italian, and Latin. She has also worked with acting directors for the stage, movies and commercials and coaches techniques for onscreen and stage acting.
The greatest asset to Corinn's teaching has been the distinguished teachers, coaches, directors, conductors and colleagues she has worked with. She has studied and continues to work with some of the finest musicians from all over the world.
Corinn is as passionate about performing as she is about teaching. These days she focuses on singing, but similar to most singers she has been studying piano for most of her life (as well as trumpet!). Corinn's first roles included Kate Ruston and Sharon Atkins in the musical Working as well as Nehebka in Aida. During her college years, she performed several roles such as Dorabella from Così fan tutte, Ivanovna Saburova from The Tsar’s Bride (the Brooklyn premiere), Larina from Eugene Onegin as well as the role of Mercédès from Carmen in the beautiful Walt Whitman Theatre. During the summer of 2010 she participated in her first opera training program, performing with Siena Summer Music’s orchestra across multiple locations in Tuscany, Italy, singing classic Italian arias and premiering several works by the resident composer, Hunter Coblentz. This inspiring summer led her to pursue a professional singing career.
Since graduate school, Corinn has performed across Europe, North America, and parts of Asia and the Middle East singing in various concerts and operas. Key roles include L'étudiant in Leçons de Français aux étudiants Américains (the premiere performance by Isabelle Aboulker) in Excideuil, France, the lead role of Perichole in La Perichole performed at the new Théâtre de l'Odyssée in Périgueux, France, Zenobia in Handel’s Radamisto in NYC, L'Opinion Publique from Orphée aux enfers in Austin, TX as well as at the impressive Miller Outdoor Theatre in Houston, Texas, and the Third Lady and Papagena both from Die Zauberflöte performed multiple times all over the Northeast. As well as her favored role, Cherubino, from Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro. She first performed this role in Salzburg, Austria during the summer Festspiel. Here Sylvia Stone (who was made famous in Germany for her Cherubino) lauded her as a natural and beautiful Cherubino. She has since performed multiple scenes as Cherubino in concerts in NYC, all over Italy and Moscow, Russia.
Some of Corinn’s most notable accomplishments include soloing in Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms at David Geffen Hall, Lincoln Center, singing a collection of famous arias at Weill Hall, Carnegie Hall (2012 and 2019), receiving first place with the Accordion Teachers Association of New Jersey classical music competition and acting and singing in 2 independent feature films: Cardio with Ian Todary Productions (NYC), which premiered on Amazon Prime in 2021, and Balls with Parallaxe Films (London, UK; Zurich, SUI). Balls; a film loosely based on Corinn's experiences as teacher/performer, uses the power of music to help a man struggling with Tourette’s Syndrome. It was met with great acclaim at the Geneva International Film Festival in Nov. 2019 as well as winning Best Romance for New York International Film Awards in May 2020. She has also participated in several prestigious training programs: Berlin Opera Academy, Lingua e Lirica (2016 & 2017), American Masters Academy of Opera, Accademia della lirica, Franco-American Vocal Academy (2012 & 2013), Opera Without Fences, Manhattan Opera Studio, Siena Summer Music, and International Music Academy of Opera (2017, 2018, 2019).

During this time she also performed the roles of La Zelatrice from Suor Angelica and La Ciesca from Gianni Schicchi while spending time in Berlin, Germany. In 2018 and 2019 she was seen performing with International Masters Academy of Opera singing La tasse chinoise and La libellule from L'enfant et les sortilèges as well as repeating the role of La Zelatrice from Suor Angelica in NYC.
