Lessons with Courtney
WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING
I’m beginning to sound like a singer. Courtney has certainly built up my confidence and with each song I sing my voice and my breath gets stronger and stronger. I also noticed over these past few months that my asthma is getting better. I like Courtney’s style. She will demonstrate how to make your song stronger and more in tune if you are out of tune. When you start to hit those notes you couldn’t hit before, believe me it’s like floating on a cloud.

My Teaching Philosophy
I have a Disney songbook that was always present on my piano during my childhood. I would play piano and sing with my sisters. It was one of the most joyful ways to spend time with my family. My goal is to spread this joy with all my students. Whether we are exploring new music, working on new vocal techniques, or practicing performance skills, voice lessons should be a time of joy. I hope to inspire this in all my students, no matter their age, experience, or talent. Everyone has a message to share; let's learn how to do that through song!
Can't wait to hear from you!
