meet the teacher
a letter from Ms. Rachelle
Hi Everyone & Welcome!

I'm Rachelle Courtney, and I love teaching and sharing my passion for music with children and youth! I find great excitement in discovering what inspires each student, and guiding them in reaching their musical potential.

Whether it's achieving the top mark in the province on an examination, winning a scholarship for a song they've written, being accepted into an acclaimed arts program, or even landing a coveted role on the professional stage; I take great pride in watching my students find success and build confidence!

I understand the importance of music education, and am grateful for the opportunity I've been given to work with young people in this community. I'm organized, goal-driven, and approach each lesson with enthusiasm and optimism. I love exploring with students the different facets of being a musician and how to develop their inner artist!

As a performer, I've had the wonderful experience of traveling the world singing jazz on cruise ships! Although my days are currently filled entertaining my toddler girls, I Iove to rehearse, write music, record, and perform at local venues. I also enjoy researching the latest teaching resources and techniques, making for effective and engaging lessons.

I look forward to getting to know you as well!

Sincerely,
Ms. Rachelle Courtney
