“With the skills I learned in Coro, I created marketing materials for a recital and masterclass, researched and contacted presenters, and booked a short tour on the west coast. Before Coro, I didn’t know how to make projects like this a reality. Now I have so many ideas and tools to implement!”

Lisa Neher, Mezzo-Soprano & Composer

“I’ve gained clarity and boosted my confidence! It’s not just about learning, but also receiving customized feedback relevant to the individual and that’s where the difference comes in with Coro.”

Kamica King, MT-BC; Music Therapist, Board Certified Singer, Songwriter; Founder & CEO King Creative Arts Expressions,

“Coro truly feels like a cooperative community. Coro’s targeted approach to tackling artistic struggles is helping me get on track for developing relationships and creative endeavors. It has been so helpful to see and meet like-minded musicians and creative people.”

Rachel Payne, Opera singer/Producer,,

“Coro helps you choose the direction of your career. Coro has helped me understand why my work is valuable and how to best communicate my value to current and potential clients. It also forced me to think through some tough questions to clarify what I want to pursue in the way of work, which makes the path to getting there easier.

There are so many paths for musicians to pursue, and realizing that I can’t do it all is really important for my career moving forward.”

Alli Gessner, Oboe and English Horn Teaching Artist
