Cory received his Bachelor of Arts in Music Therapy from Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona. In Arizona, he facilitated group and individual music therapy sessions for at-risk youth, adults with varying traumatic brain injuries, hospitalized children and individuals on the Autism spectrum.
After graduating, Cory moved back to his hometown of San Diego, California, to begin his music therapy internship with MusicWorx and Resounding Joy. During his internship, he provided music therapy services for a variety of populations at numerous locations such as Camp Pendleton, Naval Medical Center San Diego, Scripps Drug and Alcohol Treatment Program, Scripps La Jolla Memorial Hospital, Rady Children’s Hospital, Belmont Village Senior Living Sabre Springs, and the Sam and Rose Stein Education Center.

Cory is grateful to be back in his hometown where he can give back to his community using music!
