Corey de Tar

Corey De Tar is the one of the newer students of the Boston Organ Studio. He is a recent transplant from Arizona where he was a music educator, teaching children from kindergarten through high school, as well as adult learners. Primarily a trained classical singer, Corey has been a piano enthusiast since he was a child, though he never studied formally. He has served as a tenor soloist and section leader for a number of churches over the years, making music with many fine pipe organs, though never really appreciated them before becoming an organ student.

Corey has sung with many professional choirs, several of which are Grammy Award winning ensembles—such as the Phoenix Chorale and True Concord. Corey aspires to pursue a choral conducting career as an educator, artist, and church musician. He is very thrilled to be learning all of the nuance and finesse of organ playing so that he may someday run his own church music program as an organist and choir director. 

Before beginning my organ studies with Chris, I hardly ever noticed the incredible instruments that supported the choirs I sang with. Now that I’m studying the repertoire, construction, and art form of the pipe organ, I wish I could rediscover the instruments I’ve ignored in my career. Each has a unique character with its own voice and story and I’m thrilled to be able to sit down and paint pieces with the individual palette of colors each instrument has to offer.
