He is a master teacher and has become a good friend.

"After many years I revisited my passion for drumming and became an avid student of Corey's. He is a master teacher and has become a good friend. He takes the time to teach in a way that makes drumming fun and a great learning experience. Corey has a knack for tapping (pun intended!) into one's 'inner drummer'. I highly recommend Corey to anyone who's interested in any and all aspects of drumming! Kudos!!"
