As the popular music education platform YousicPlay continues to attract a worldwide following of dedicated students, there is now another reason to celebrate, with the release of a new masterclass by internationally renowned artist, composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist and versatile keyboard genius Cory Henry. This comprehensive digital course – his first since 2011, the first in which he focuses on numerous musical genres -- is just the latest achievement of this 33-year-old musician’s remarkable career. Since he began his professional career in 2006, he has shared the stage and studio with iconic musicians including Ms. Lauren Hill, Ty Dolla $ign, Quincy Jones and The Roots, and also won a Grammy Award as a member of the instrumental collective Snarky Puppy.
Cory Henry’s versatility – expressing his talent through gospel, funk, fusion, R&B and Soul – has won him a vast online following, including more than 100 million aggregated YouTube views, and praise from numerous music critics. NPR’s All Things Consideredpraised Henry’s ability to “glide through just about any song on the Hammond with the ease of someone taking the family car out for a Sunday drive.” A music critic for Essencemagazine noted that the social issues that inspired the 11 tracks on latest album – “Something to Say,” released on October 30 – is “right on time with this message to remind us all to not forget what we’re living and fighting for.”
Remarkably, Cory Henry began playing the piano and the B3 organ when he was only two years old, and by the time he was five years old, he began to be known as “Master Henry” for improvisational skill on the Hammond Organ. He took to the stage of New York City’s legendary Apollo Theater when he was only six years old. At the age of 19, Cory Henry began his career as a touring musician, performing with countless musical icons including Bruce Springsteen, P. Diddy and Boyz II Men. His previous albums have placed well on Billboard magazine’s Jazz and Gospel charts. Like many successful touring musicians, Henry’s busy tour schedule came to an abrupt halt in March due to the global pandemic – giving him a chance to collaborate with the YousicPlay team to create a digital course that is sure to inspire countless music students. Each lesson on the YousicPlay platform is captured with cinematic video quality and state-of-the-art audio engineering.
For music students, this multiple-module digital course offers them the experience of joining this internationally respected artist in the studio, virtually joining him at the keyboard as he shares lessons that are certain to take their skill to another level. In addition to the digital course modules, in a series of supplemental video segments titled “A Moment With Cory,” YousicPlay students will have a chance to hear this talented artist share entertaining stories and helpful tips – how he plays multiple keyboards, how he controls his anxiety before a performance, how he establishes a routine for practicing, and much more.
Alain Merville, Founder and CEO of YousicPlay, says that Cory Henry’s new digital course serves as a great example of the music education platform’s commitment to give students access to world-class artists that would normally be impossible. “With his amazing versatility across so many different musical genres, and his passion for expressing himself so powerfully through his compositions, Cory Henry is a great role model and inspiration for YousicPlay’s students,” Merville says.
ABOUT CORY HENRY
Internationally renowned artist, composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist and all-around keyboard master Cory Henry was born to be a musician. Picking up the organ at two and becoming a permanent fixture of his church’s choir by five, it wasn’t long before he was sharing the stage with the likes of Ms. Lauryn Hill, Quincy Jones and The Roots and winning a Grammy Award as a vital part of instrumental collective Snarky Puppy. Cory has made a name for himself as a vocalist, instrumentalist and writer for icons spanning generations, but his work at the helm of his own band Cory Henry and the Funk Apostles is what shot him into superstardom. Cory Henry and the Funk Apostles are known for consistently enchanting live performances, and their viral NPR Tiny Desk show is a testament to this. NPR’s All Things Considered raved that Henry “can glide through just about any song on the Hammond with the ease of someone taking the family car out for a Sunday drive.” With over 100 million aggregated Youtube views, the Brooklyn-born and LA-based “future soul” maestro’s far-reaching impact sets the stage for a promising return on ‘Something To Say.’
