CPS Partnership Program 

Corina is a violinist and music educator from Austin, TX and is currently pursuing her Master of Music degree at DePaul University under Janet Sung in Chicago, IL. She completed her Bachelor of Music at the University of Texas at Austin, where she studied with Sandy Yamamoto. As a teacher and teaching artist, Corina has served on the faculty of the UT String Project, Music Mission San Francisco, and currently teaches for DePaul’s Community Music Division and The People’s School of Music. Her passion for teaching comes from the belief that students learn best when they are supported, encouraged, and challenged, and she strives to provide experiences for her students that bring them joy.

Corina has worked with acclaimed violinists and teachers such as David Kim, Laurie Smukler, Danielle Belen, Sally O’Reilly, pianist Rohan de Silva, violist Paul Neubauer, and members of the Miró and Juilliard String Quartets. She made her solo debut in March 2019 with the Austin Civic Orchestra as a winner of their Texas Rising Stars competition. When she is not playing or teaching, Corina enjoys latin dancing, listening to podcasts, and the occasional Netflix binge.
