All artists need a solid foundation of vocal technique, even if blessed with natural talent. Your voice is an instrument that CAN be learned with the right training. You will feel truly supported with individual attention, a focus on solid, proven technique and vocal health. You will learn an overview of performance requirements and develop your musical expression.
Bettina’s vocal technique is a synthesis of over twenty years of study, investigation, and trial and error of the many confusing, and often conflicting, methods of teaching. Music will be provided and many singing styles will be covered including theater (with an emphasis on appropriate audition material), jazz, rock, pop, classical.
The Merry Widow, Lyric Opera of Chicago
Ah, music! A magic far beyond all we do here!
The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between.
People who make music together cannot be enemies, at least while the music lasts.
The only escapes from the miseries of life are music and cats.
If I cannot fly, let me sing.
I don’t sing because I’m happy; I’m happy because I sing.
Music in the soul can be heard by the universe
The only thing better than singing is more singing.
And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.
You can’t stay the same. If you’re a musician and a singer, you have to change. That’s the way it works.
