How We Began

In January 2018, Corey established Creative Expressions Music Academy (formerly Piano Expressions with Corey) with the desire to bring music and purpose back into his life. For the first year or so, Corey taught a few students at a local church while continuing to work his day job, and he soon found that teaching his students was the best part of his day! Little did he know, this reignited love for music teaching would soon blossom into a full-time career!

In June 2019, Corey made the decision to quit his day job and venture out on his own. He began actively advertising and bringing new students into his studio. Taking professional development courses, and finding new and inspiring curriculums to teach became the focus of the next few months. Corey spent the summer putting together vast array of music-theory games, studio challenges, teaching resources, and music repertoire!

Creative Expressions Music Academy held its first student recital in July 2019, with eight students performing to a large audience. From here, the studio grew exponentially. In just two short months, Corey welcomed over 35 new students into his studio for September 2019, and by December, his studio had grown to over 50 students, so he began to hire teachers. Currently, we have 100+ students taking lessons with us in 2022, with a wide variety of instruments and voice now offered!
