The Art Institute of Vancouver gave me the skills and knowledge to take my passion to the next level.

Courtney-Nina Dizon is working as a sound engineer, music teacher, and manager at C.C. Infinite Music & Entertainment Group in Richmond, British Columbia. “I am a music teacher and I teach children of all ages piano, guitar, drums, bass, violin, flute, dance, bands, and live sound.” As the head sound engineer at C.C. Infinite Music & Entertainment Group, Courtney-Nina records local artists and develops local talent. “I am responsible for the business side of things—handling new and existing students, scheduling, and coordinating events and performances across the lower mainland.” She says that having her own business allows her to be flexible with her schedule. “The Art Institute of Vancouver gave me the skills and knowledge to take my passion to the next level. I used to only be a music teacher, but enrolling in [the school] allowed me to discover and fine tune my skills as a sound engineer.”

Courtney-Nina finds inspiration in the music of Alicia Keys and The Eagles and recommends that current students take networking seriously. “I am still very close friends with everyone from my graduating class. We have collaborated on a few projects and we support each other during CD release parties and other events. Your experience in the music industry will be more rewarding when you collaborate with others.”

Courtney-Nina, who in2012 earned an Independent Recording Arts Certificate from The Art Institute of Vancouver, says that her education prepared her for her career. “[It provided] hands-on learning. I was able to speak the same lingo and understand the lingo of producers who are in the music industry working with artists that we hear on the radio.”
