Using cutting edge pedagogical techniques, Courtney tailors a course of study that serves each of her student's unique needs. Students are guided through a variety of functional exercises, enabling comfortable, versatile and expressive playing across all CCM styles of repertoire.
Topics of focus can include: bodywork (including healthy posture and hand position), practice technique, keyboard technology, music theory, style/composer/artist history, improvisation, ensemble and solo performance skills and performance confidence.
You're never too young to start learning, and for this reason, young children (prep age upwards) are are also embraced at the studio. Courtney has a passion for making piano accessible and fun, and incorporates a number of age-appropriate resources, activities and games in each lesson; opening up a world of exploration in music.
Older students are invited to work with studio vocalists in lessons and recitals, exploring the art of accompanying at a foundational level.
Courtney's encouraging approach ensures that each lesson is an uplifting experience, where students can feel safe, supported and valued.
