Cory Vyse:

Fiddle – Violin – Mandolin – Beginner Guitar

The fiddle is my passion and I set out to share it!

In the past 16 years of playing with multiple bands and now in the TX Country Music Industry I have gained real life musician experience both on and off stage as well as recording experience in the studio. I studied Commercial Music at South Plains College where I studied business ethics for music as well as understanding “self worth”.  I have always challenged myself to understand the fundamentals of Nashville Notation and Music Theory. Any student I work with will be trained “classically” to both read and write sheet music notation and will be challenged in the same ways that I challenge myself. My teaching style will encourage you to know and understand all aspects and styles of music for versatility.
