You have music to make. Music that can make the world a better place to live in.
I have the tools you need to connect your heart with the hearts of your listeners through your voice.
Hey, Indie! I'm Courtney.
Are you done being critical of your own voice? Ready to love it, no matter what?
Want warm and fuzzy, a little bit buzzy feelings when you open your mouth to sing?
How about the confidence of understanding exactly how your voice works and how to help it show up for you every single time you need it?
And what if you could be so comfortable and confident that you could let go of how you sound completely?
What if expressing yourself and the truth of your music was your sole focus anytime you stepped up to a mic?
Well, it’s so nice to meet you. I can definitely help you with that.
I’m a vocal coach, and I looooooove indie artists.
I love the big dreams, the audacity, and the world of music before the big guys get a hold of you and tell you who to be.
I believe in bringing out the best in YOU and helping you shine behind the mic – on stage or in the studio – so that you can feel comfortable being yourself, connecting with listeners, and making lifelong fans.
I work with artists in 3 to 6 month commitments.
Why? Because single sessions booked willy nilly don’t lead to transformations.
Your voice is muscle, which means learning to sing is actually the act of developing muscle memory. That takes weeks of specific, guided repetition!
I can show you what’s possible in one day, but I can’t help you make what’s possible permanent without time.
And to be honest, if I’m here to help you make amazing music, my responsibility is to help you keep showing up for yourself.

Here's what my clients say about me:
What surprised me the most was that I can sing in my own vocal style in a healthy and sustainable way. I didn’t think it was possible! I thought my real voice was always “wrong” [because of] my past experience with vocal coaches. When Courtney showed me that I could sing in my style while still keeping my voice healthy, it blew my mind!
David Young, Nashville based Americana artist
I was encouraged at a young age to never take voice lessons as the instructor might try and change your voice to how he/she wanted it. However, Courtney had no interest in changing my voice. I left feeling like my voice and range was freed up, more relaxed, and ready to conquer any song.
Courtney Burns, singer/songwriter
My weekly sessions with Courtney have been incredibly cathartic. We laugh, I cry, and I grow because of Courtney’s kindness & gift for teaching.
Carrie Speh, High School Teacher, Praise + Worship singer
Okay, but really, how are you gonna be *better* when this is all over?
You’ll let go of singing “correctly” and really lean into singing like YOU – in a healthy, sustainable way.
You’ll leave behind previous training and thought processes that are pulling you further and further away from your true sound.
You’ll learn your voice and your songs like you’ve never known them before, inside and out.
You’ll connect so deeply to your songs in the studio that your whole body responds.
You’ll deliver vocal performances you never dreamed you could pull off.
” I sang one take all the way through my song with SO much emotion that after it was over I felt like I had just run a 5k: the endorphins were pumping, I felt amazed by my new voice, and I was literally shaking. It was the coolest experience I have had with my vocals.
David Young, Nashville based Americana artist
What’s my background? I am a choral singer turned opera singer turned… country singer. Yeah, that took a turn.
I care SO MUCH about YOU sounding like YOU because for the first 25 years of my life, I didn’t sound like me.
But country is what I actually always wanted to do. I dove head first into choir and classical training because I really wanted to sing. I wanted to sing all. the. time. And those were the opportunities available to me in my tiny little middle-of-nowhere town.
But that made singing country music really hard for me. I struggled with certain things about my voice that my classical teachers didn’t know how to solve, on top of often being told the way I really wanted to sing was “wrong.”
I stayed in the classical system all the way through college, thinking eventually I’d find someone with the experience or knowledge to help me, but even in my Music Industry/Commercial Music program, there was no one. I was still training to sing opera.
And after I left school, it took me years to figure out what my next steps should be.
Multiple coaches, text books, methods, experiments, and an amazing opportunity to train + certify as a coach with Vocal Lab Collective later, and I finally feel like I have the voice I’ve always wanted.
And my ONLY goal as a coach is to give you the voice YOU have always wanted – safely and sustainably.
I've been helping artists develop voices they love for 5+ years.
