T.J. and his Wife Corinne, have been performing together both professionally and personally for the past 20 years. As teenagers, music was always the highlight of their existence and what brought them both together to begin with. TJ and Corinne have performed with various bands in the Simcoe County area and have played at a wide variety of venues. T.J. and Corinne have been collaborating and writing songs for the past 20 years and hope to someday, get one of their originals on the charts. Top 100 would be great! TJ’s Dad and Wife were the inspiration for many of the songs he has written. T.J. and Corinne (also known as the The Claudio’s in Audio, formerly The Dynamic Duo), have now added to their act, their Daughter Jazsmyn who knows how to sing, play piano, guitar as well as the ukulele.
T.J. has recently endeavored to provide background music for the narration of Children’s stories and enjoys it so much that he is now offering his time as an additional service provided at local Public Schools. He has also been the Music Instructor at Kilarney Beach Public School, as well as Alcona Glen Public School where he taught their Grade 8 students how to play the Ukulele.
Corinne, the Co-owner, Office Manager and Instructor at TJ’s has 35 years of singing experience and even made it on to the American Idol Stage on Season 9. Corinne has a passion for music and a love for kids and teaching. Combine this with over 30 years of professional executive administrative experience and you have a perfect combination for success.
Corinne loves sharing her skill set and knowledge with each of her students. She makes learning fun for kids and has a natural ability to pick up on her students who might be struggling through a song, and engages them through other teaching methods. No student ever leaves a lesson with Ms. Corinne feeling like they haven’t achieved something. “I always tell my students that if there is something they do not understand, to let me know so that we can go through it together cause no question is a stupid question”.
