Recording and Mixing professionally for over 20 years. Blue Man Group Drummer and String player for 18 years. Please listen to my samples here and on my website.
I have spent my career in the music industry as a drummer, composer, touring musician, and producer. I am the third generation in a family of professional musicians, including my father, jazz legend CHICK COREA.
I currently own and operate JAGUAR RECORDING STUDIO in Las Vegas. I was an original band member in BLUE MAN GROUP from 2000-2018, where I played multiple instruments (Drums, Zither, Bass, Guitar, and Chapman stick). Previously, drumming with WILD COLONIALS (Geffen records), co-writing and recording three albums, and touring nationally.
I have been recording artists for more than 20 years. My studio has a comfortable creative vibe with great gear. I can definitely help you achieve your music recording goals. If you need an instrument recorded that I don't play, I have a great list of diverse musicians who can play anything you can imagine. Let’s get started.
First, let’s talk about your music and find out what I can do for you. Call or email. If I don’t already know your music, sometimes a good first step is to send me a demo of what you have so far or what you have recorded most recently.

4 ReviewsEndorse Thaddeus Corea
I have worked with Thaddeus for many years on various projects but notably, have partnered with him in creating my own music. His skills as an engineer are impeccable, and that he's an accomplished and talented musician, makes him more of an asset than your average engineer/producer. As a producer, he has the rare ability to let you lead the session but will not shy away from taking a stand on an issue or point of contention. He makes you stop when the take is "the one" or keep going to get gold. His musical intuition is a rare one indeed. If you want vibe and and skill, he's your man!
It's always a great pleasure working with Thaddeus. His studio is a one-stop-shop where you can just bring your composition and get the final product done. He will help you hire the musicians you need for your compositions, coordinate their schedule for recording, record, mix, and master them. He makes the musicians and your compositions sound better. His studio is super convenient. He recorded so many volumes of my chamber music compositions. Wherever on earth you and your musicians live, Thaddeus has a can-do- attitude where he can always make it happen. I am so grateful to have known him.
Thaddeus took my music from simple demos and turned them into a professional album! He added acoustic drums, bass, guitars, keyboard, and backing vocals. I highly recommend him as a producer and mixer. His insights about arrangements, lyrics, and melodies, took my songs to the next level. His improvements and super cool effects make me look really good as a songwriter and artist!
Great vibe in the room
He's easy to communicate with
Great equipment and can play just about any instrument or gets very accomplished musicians to play whatever is needed.
Thad is an absolute joy to work with. His space is peaceful and open and it matches his personality perfectly. I've worked with him on numerous projects and I've loved every result!
