Corin Lee is the 2024 Alumni Enterprise Award winner at the Music Academy of the West for his innovative endeavor VR Practice.

Lee attended the Miraflores campus as violin fellow in 2009 and today is a member of the Ethel string quartet and founder of the Liberated Performer, a program that trains and empowers performers to conquer stage fright.

He has appeared from Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium to the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery.

Lee also received degrees from New York’s Juilliard School and Yale School of Music, and an honorary doctorate from Dennison University.

His award-winning project VR Practice aims to revolutionize how students learn music by integrating virtual reality and artificial intelligence with practice and rehearsal sessions.

Ethel, in partnership with the School of Music at the University of Oklahoma, are developing the pilot project.

As this year’s AEA winner, Lee receives a $7,000 award to support the continuation and completion of the project.
