Our Accompanist

Jacqueline Courson is a native of Phoenix, AZ, who began playing piano at the age of seven. Having played both piano and percussion in a variety of bands throughout childhood, Jacqueline now devotes her time to her two musical passions – teaching piano and performing. Jacqueline graduated Summa Cum Laude from Arizona State University and the Barrett Honors College and worked in the medical arena for a decade as a prosthetist and a quality engineer, After Jacqueline found herself allocating all her free time to playing in bands and composing music, it was an easy decision to devote her life fully to music. Jacqueline agreed to share her considerable musical talents as the new accompanist to the Westbrook Village Voices beginning in the spring of 2020. Jacqueline actively works to serve the community to encourage self-expression through music. When not playing music, Jacqueline enjoys jewelry design, yoga, running, traveling and spending time outdoors.
