Ontario, Canada native Courtney Meloche is the winner of the second annual Gilt City LA Scholarship at Musicians Institute. The newly enrolling Bachelor’s Degree in Performance Program student comes to MI having performed music during the last twelve years (in the folk-rock, pop, country, acoustic singer-songwriter and rock genres) and has been writing music since she was a young child.
Upon learning about her award, Courtney explains that she chose to study at MI because “the opportunities present there are not available to me by staying in small town Canada. Everything about the school feels like the perfect fit to me, and I am so excited about studying at MI!”
While at MI she plans to “work on improving my stage presence and live performance skills, learn more about my voice and how to use it to its full extent, and get more insight into the music industry and how it works.” After MI, Courtney’s career aspirations are to “get to a point where I am performing full time and making enough money from it to be financially stable. I want to tour a lot and see different corners of the world. I don’t necessarily aspire to be famous, but more than anything, I want to make music that resonates with people and makes them smile.”
Everyone at MI congratulates Courtney on this achievement, which marks a great beginning to her studies. We look forward to seeing her reach her full potential while at MI.
Special thanks to our industry partner, Gilt City LA for generously sponsoring this scholarship, which helps to provide talented students like Courtney with the support, tools and recognition they need to launch successful and creative careers in the music industry.
