Deh, proteggimi o Dio
from "Norma"

Korin K.

Voice, Piano

     

Korin earned a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the prestigious Eastman School of Music, and is a former regional finalist in the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. 

 

Korin is a dramatic soprano who has been acclaimed for her luscious voice, commanding stage presence, and theatrical conviction.  Notable operatic roles include the title characters in Samson et Dalila (Saint-Saëns) and Menotti's The Medium; Adalgisa in Bellini’s Norma, Marcellina in Le Nozze di Figaro (Mozart), the Mother in Hansel and Gretel (Humperdinck), and Mrs. Grose in The Turn of the Screw (Britten). 

 

Korin is deeply committed to music education, and her recent charity concert with pianist Ling Leng raised $1,250 in donations which will be used to distribute musical instruments to public school students via the Kiwanis Club of Stamford, CT.

 

In lessons, Korin likes to create a multisensory atmosphere that combines visual, tactile, and auditory aspects into a hands-on experience. She enjoys teaching a wide range of music, including classical, musical theatre, popular and contemporary. She loves to see the initial discoveries and self-confidence that come from a student conquering a new skill, as well as the challenge of helping a struggling student by adapting her methods to find the right key that will unlock an idea. Many of her students and their parents say that Korin's lesson is the highlight of their week. She strives to make this the case for all of her pupils and believes that fun is the greatest motivator.
