Mary Saunders, Head of Musical Theatre Voice at Penn State University Says:
I had known Bette by reputation as a performer long before we met in Rockland County. I remember being thoroughly taken with her performance as Maggie Flynn in the Equity Library Master Theatre production of the musical of that name.
Bette is a warm and energetic woman, totally at home with singers of all ages and well prepared with a BS in Music Education, Voice Primary and Honors recital from Montclair State University. When I left Rockland County to take my position on the faculty of Penn State University, I felt fortunate to have Bette there to accept many of the local students from my studio.
I was totally confident in sending them to her; her teaching manner is spirited and creative, compassionate and sensitive.
She is deeply curious about current teaching methods and new ways of addressing vocal issues. I can wholeheartedly endorse her as a voice teacher.
