Each lesson is tailored specifically to each student.
I truly love being about to help students feel more confident, to build better technique, and to increase the health and longevity of their instrument.
First off I would like to say that Courtney is made for this. My first Lesson was professional, direct and molded to fit MY voice. She doesn't force a particular method on you and your abilities, she focuses on what's important to help build & sustain your career as a vocalist. I thoroughly enjoyed collaborating with her. I recommend Courtney to everyone I meet in need of coaching. THANK YOU COURTNEY!
Courtney is very passionate about singing as well as her students. Her desire to make each and every student the best singer they can be makes her an exceptional vocal teacher!
Courtney really knows her music. She's my voice coach and is helping me to read music. Her knowledge and encouragement have meant a great deal to me.
First, I sit down with each student for an interview where we discuss their music experience, vocal health, their goals, and what they are looking to get out of our lessons together.
I have been singing since I was 5, performing since I was 9, an priviate study since I was 10. I have such with several wonderful choirs, including the Atlanta Women's Chorus. I hold a Bachelor's of Music in Voice Performance from Florida State University.
I sing with the Atlanta Women's Chorus, and several of the members asked if I would consider teaching voice.
Primarly women who are in their mid 20's and up, who have a musical background of some kind who really wanted to hone their skills, build confidence, and strengthen their technique.
My advice would be to make sure that the teacher truly wants to help you (the student) to reach YOUR goals, and not a cookie cutter set of ideals that do not really fit who you are, or who you want to become musically, professionally, and personally.
What do I want out of these lessons? Am I really willing to put in the time and effort it takes to make progress? How willing am I to stick with lessons when seems tideous? How sensative is the teacher to what my goals are? Is the teacher actually listening to me and taking to heart what I'm saying?
