Courtney Waldie

Courtney is a multi-instrumentalist, originally from Montreal, Quebec. She began singing and playing classical piano at the age of 5. After completing her grade VIII RCM, Courtney turned her interest to the world of strings and decided to learn the guitar and the cello. At 18, she became the youngest musical director at Dawson College, putting on works such as Spring Awakening and Into the Woods. Though she was an active performer in the Montreal music theatre community, she decided to move to Toronto to pursue her degree in Vocal performance at the University of Toronto. She completed the degree with honours in 2017. Courtney is now a full-time pedagogue and performer who continues to explore and engage with the Toronto music scene. Though she has been trained in the classical and RCM styles, Courtney enjoys teaching piano and voice with a special focus on contemporary commercial (CCM) styles (i.e. pop, r&b, music theatre, etc.). She also teaches music theory with an emphasis on RCM classical harmony, levels 1-8. When she is not teaching or performing, you will find Courtney in studio working on her own personal projects, predicted to be released in 2020.
