“Gina is a terrific violinist who has the rare ability to combine the precision needed to play classical music as well as the emotion and feel needed to play popular and other types of music. She is very professional, easy to work with, and always willing to put the music first and do whatever is needed to give her best performance. Her playing at my own wedding gave life to my arrangements and just enhanced the entire day for me, my wife and all of our guests.”

 

– Ian Macaulay, former guitar player for John Legend

“Gina Corso is a consummate professional.  Gina has served as the University’s violinist for numerous special events and official academic functions, including several official convocations. Her performances are superb, and often breathtaking. Gina’s musical repertoire is as deep as it is broad and she brings a musicologist’s understanding of the western canon to every event for which she performs. She is able to move effortlessly from baroque counterpoint to an elegiac Irish air and then forward to a rock anthem without hesitation, seamlessly blending these multivariant forms into an impressive program of string music. Gina’s playing is rich, passionate and technically remarkable. And she is a true professional from start to finish.  Working with her is a joy. She is careful about follow-up, attentive to detail, deeply attuned to the soul of an event and focused on the needs of her listeners.”

– Vice President for Academic Affairs – Neumann University, Gerard O’Sullivan

“Gina’s music made a memorable day even more beautiful. She brought soul to the ceremony.”

“Gina, your talent of working with children is such a Blessing!  You challenge Vincent and he respects and adores you!  He’s learned so much this year with you…  I don’t know how many of your student’s parents sit in with you for lessons, but it is an honor to witness! Tension can be thick as a knife, or hilarious, or joyous – just like music can evoke many emotions, lessons seem like that too! I never know what to expect!”

 

– Lisa Negroni, parent of student

“Gina has been an excellent violin teacher for our son.  She learned quickly how he was motivated and has made playing the violin fun.  Our son is 6 years old and started playing about  3 years ago. With multiple recitals a year, he has been able to showcase what he has learned.  One of the most exciting things for us as parents was after violin camp for 2 weeks all the students put on a concert on the lawn.  It was great to see how she was able to incorporate all different levels and ages of violinists to make a truly memorable experience. We would recommend Gina to anyone who is thinking of trying to play violin no matter how young or old you are.”
– Katie Lauer, Mother of Student
 
 
 “Gina was the musician for a wedding I attended last year. She was set up and playing music as the guests were seated, and during the ceremony. She plays beautifully and her violin filled the room with amazing music. She has a lovely presence and demeanor and I would recommend her for any event.”

“I received only positive feedback from my students after Gina’s presentations. They were highly motivated to move forward with improvising. She has a wonderful way of teaching which diminished their fears of thinking outside of the box. The best part for me was to see the shyest of my string students blossom with confidence. Huge smiles were abundant.”
