He composed ballets and divertissements for the stage, including Arlequin, Armide, Le jugement de Midas, Les âges, Nina, and Persée. He composed many concertos, notably twenty-five concertos comiques. Aside from these works and concertos for organ, he also composed sonatas, songs, instrumental chamber works, harpsichord pieces, cantatas, and other sacred vocal works. Corrette also organised concerts and taught music. He wrote nearly twenty music-method books for various instruments -- the violin, cello, bass, flute, recorder, bassoon, harpsichord, harp, mandolin, voice, and more -- with titles such as L'art de se perfectionner sur le violon (The Art of Playing the Violin Perfectly), Le parfait maître à chanter (The Perfect Singing Master) and L′école d′Orphée (The School of Orpheus), a violin treatise describing the French and Italian styles.
