JP Hartmann, Billboard #1 RIAA-certified Gold Record says:

I began taking voice lessons from Bette when I was nine-years-old.  Though I had performed for family and friends since I was two, the recitals Bette arranged for her students were my first public performances.  From a cubby-cheeked boy singing “Hero” – in Mariah Carey’s key – Bette coached me through countless musical theatre auditions, directed me in two productions with Antrim Summer Theatre, and guided me through my voice change.


 Though I occasionally made a sport of shocking her with a boyhood lack of concern for healthy vocal practice, Bette eventually managed to pass along to me her dedication to craft and passion for performance.  For the past sixteen years, I have frequented recording studios across New York City as a professional session singer. My voice has appeared on several national TV and radio commercials, as well as a Billboard #1, RIAA-certified gold record.  Bette remains a wonderful friend and supporter, as well as a great source of advice and encouragement.  Thank you, Bette.
