Born and raised in the Houston area, Corey Barta learned how to play the flute in the 6th grade. Her parents instilled a great love and appreciation for music of all types. She remembers listening to The Beatles as they cleaned, to Pink Floyd as they drove in the car, as well as orchestral music performed by the Houston Symphony. Naturally, as a flautist, she grew up with a desire to learn the well-known flute parts of these songs.

Ms. Barta studied the flute with Jennifer Amox for three years, and attended high school in Deer Park, Texas. This was a great opportunity because of the high rate of competition within the area. The Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) did its part in giving students the opportunities to practice more challenging music. In addition, participating in the University Interscholastic League (UIL) Region and Area competitions each year helped increase Corey's technical abilities.

Corey received her Bachelor's degree in Music Performance from Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. Attending school at Henderson allowed Ms. Barta generous amounts of opportunities to grow as a musician, such as performing with Concert Choir, Wind Ensemble, Flute Choir, and NuFusion Jazz Band. Ms. Barta was an avid singer during her time at Henderson and even minored in voice studies. She sang at many of the choir concerts and enjoyed learning how to optimize her vocal potential. Learning how to approach singing has been a passion for her ever since, and she often pairs guitar or piano playing with singing. In the Jazz Band Ms. Barta had the opportunity to perform in the Jazz style as an improviser and doubler on saxophone. She also began learning the piano during this time, taking several proficiency courses. Ms. Barta had the opportunity to perform for Henderson's annual President's Concert Concerto Competition in 2011 and again in 2013. In this competition, musicians are given the opportunity to perform a solo work for their instrument accompanied by performers from the HSU Chamber Orchestra as well as the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra. Corey went to to earn her Master's degree in Musical Therapy from Texas Women University. 

Ms. Barta has been teaching lessons since 2009. Her many years of experience have equipped her with the necessary tools for teaching flute, voice, guitar, saxophone, and piano lessons to students of all ages. Ms. Barta’s approach to teaching is unique to each student, with the understanding that each student learns differently and should be approached at their level of musicianship.  Her goal is to help eager and aspiring musicians learn how to become more comfortable with their instrument. This means getting your fingers moving and your sight-reading faster!
