Album Notes
Music Corner is a musical storytelling ensemble that introduces children to the four instrument families of the orchestra: brass, strings, woodwinds, and percussion. Each musician is also a storyteller, which gives Music Corner the ability to create exciting performances combining music with interactive stories.

The four musicians of Music Corner have been performing together for thousands of children since 2007. Violinist Christopher Taber was born in Washington State, USA, and holds a degree from the San Fransisco State University. Masako Hockey was born in Japan and studied to be a professional percussionist at the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts & Music. Marcus Hissen was born in Germany, grew up in Victoria, and studied trombone at the University of Victoria and the Glenn Gould School. Clarinetist Rebecca (“Becky”) Hissen also grew up in Victoria, studied at the University of Victoria, and holds a Master of Music degree from the Manhattan School of Music.

Music Corner's live performances begin by introducing children to the four musicians and their instruments. From there, a variety of activities are integrated in ways that let children interact directly with the music and participate in the storytelling. Activities include games, songs, listening, and dancing. Performances typically last 45 minutes and are often followed by a chance for children to actually try instruments similar to the ones used in the performance, with guidance and encouragement from the performers themselves.

Music Corner offers a variety of programs for different age groups. To learn more please visit
