Corey was also involved in annual solo and ensemble contests in northeast Ohio while playing trumpet for the Cleveland Youth Wind Symphony.

He also established, performed and composed for many freelance bands during Columbus Ohio community events, company banquets, and weddings. Corey has traveled the country performing, playing and leading worship for major conferences, performed on B.E.T Gospel, was featured in the 2006 Midwest Urban Music conference for independent artists and is constantly performing at various musical cafés and venues. Corey has developed his music production, composition and training techniques through working with singers and musicians who are trying to establish their independent projects.

Corey is currently a Trumpet and Voice instructor at the Columbus Music Academy in Columbus Ohio.
