Artist Development Testimonials

“Without the guidance and teachings from Courtney la CiRiene, I would never be where I am today. Starting out, I was nothing more than a couple chords and a shaky voice. Through her vocal exercises and lessons, I became a stronger, more confident, and well rounded musician. She produced my first EP, several singles, and together we created an image for myself. I went from playing alone in my room to performing for over two thousand people in less than a year. Courtney helped me grow not only as a musician, but as a person as well. She is everything you could ever want in a mentor and I have had the absolute pleasure of working with her. She comes with a humbled heart and open arms and I could never repay her for the what she has done for me.”

“When Courtney started working with me my only singing experience had been as a back up singer. It was clear from the get go that she had the knowledge and experience I needed to get my vocals up to snuff. Her style is firm yet patient. Her sessions are packed with powerful information on technique. Courtney knew how to get the best quality singing voice out of me without hurting my vocal chords or me feeling strained. She is always focused and always watching to make sure I am singing the right way. As a new singer I never felt judged by her and I always felt supported with a positive forward momentum. Now I am writing and singing on my own songs and I am thankful for having worked with Courtney. Without her training I would not have the confidence I now have in my singing voice. She is in the back of my head every time I sing and I am a better singer for it!”

“I met Courtney many years ago. In vocal lessons, she is more than a coach, she becomes a friend who you can trust and feel comfortable developing your skills with. She has taught me many techniques and helped me grow as an artist. Thank you Courtney for your dedication and love for teaching.”
