I am now teaching remotely using Zoom and Skype.
I enjoy teaching my students how to sing by learning proper breathing and working with resonance and tone quality. I have taught all ages of students including students who have vocal trouble as a result of incorrect singing technique. From my experience teaching K-12 general music classes as well as being a professional classical singer and assistant professor of voice, I have over 20 years of experience. Look for me on LinkedIn and Facebook.
I am a licensed K-12 music instructor in State of North Carolina and my credentials include a Doctor of Musical Arts and an International Baccalaureate Certificate to teach in IB schools internationally.
Most rewarding to me is the joy my students feel when their voice is free and healthy and they have the confidence to sing in front of an audience.

I have always enjoyed helping singers to enjoy and improve their singing ability and musicianship. It is especially rewarding to hear that my students are succeeding in music education and performance careers. Even amateur students who improve enough to perform with their favorite choir or get a part in the school musical are all big wins and make me proud to be a voice teacher.
While I have not taken lessons with Dr. Bartz, I have had the distinct pleasure of hearing her perform in concert and in opera. She has a magnificent voice and volumes of happy students from teaching at university and in her private studio.
The first lesson is more of an interview in which I find out about the expectations of the student and what the goals they have for voice lessons. By listening to the student's voice as well as demonstrating exercises for the student, I make a diagnostic evaluation of what the student needs help with and set up a plan of study based on what I hear.
My vocal study is extensive and I have worked with a variety of professional singers and educators. I have a Doctor of Musical Arts from UNC-Greensboro in performance and have studied with some wonderful private teachers in New York City, Washington D.C. and now North Carolina.
