At-a-Glance Benefits for Teens, Here:

  • Challenging but fun lessons. We balance exercises with song work, according to each singer's personality and ability. 
  • Up-to-date songs. My Top 40 sheet music library stays current with pop, indie, and theatre songs, with special emphasis on songs that will help develop a young singer's voice. 
  • Authentic style coaching and accompaniment from a working commercial musician.

Experience with Teens

  • Musical director for several teen pre-professional programs: Arts Club Musical Theatre Intensive, Richmond Gateway Summer Musical Theatre Program.
  • Musical director for over thirty high school shows.
  • 30-40% of current clients are teen singers--we seem to get along great :)

Philosophy for Working with Teens

Teens studying here get treated the same way as adults, mostly, i.e. some work, some fun--according to each individual's personality and goals, in a respectful, non-patronizing atmosphere.

In only six months Courtenay has taught me that I am capable of singing with much more ease and nuance than I thought possible. My range and control have improved a great deal since I started.

Courtenay has made me a better and more confident singer. I really enjoy our sessions together and recommend him to anyone seeking to improve their singing.
