Cory has been playing and teaching music in the Valley for over 25 years. He teaches ukulele, electric & acoustic guitar, bass guitar, and mandolin at The Music Store in Mesa, AZ. While he is capable of providing in-depth study, Cory’s philosophy of music leans toward the "less talk, more play!" approach. “No one takes up a musical instrument to ADD more stress/work/guilt in their lives, but to have FUN! And ukulele is the smallest, simplest, most affordable, and least-intimidating instrument in the folk/stringed instrument family (and let’s face it—it’s CUTE...). Whether they realize it or not, almost every “beginner” has a unspoken, two- part question: “WILL I be able to do this”, and “How long will it take me to feel like I’m playing music”. Even one lesson will greatly help you understand what is involved in playing the ukulele. The hardest part is getting started!
