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 (under 7 years) 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.
