I loved Arts in CT. It helped me with my singing. It improved my dancing and acting skills. It allowed me to have confidence in speaking to others. Most of all Arts in CT was a spectacular experience.

My son learned so much in just a few months doing the voice lessons with Barbara. The lesson are fun and engaging for kids! My son can’t wait for voice lesson days. I would recommend this to any parent who wants their child to learn how to sing while enjoying the process.
Barbara has shown a great deal of patience working with all her students. She works with a variety of talents, needs, and backgrounds of students and gives them all her upmost greatest effort. Her performance speaks for itself.
My experience with Barbara has been awesome! I have been taking voice lessons since February. Since working with her i have gained so much more confidence.She has taught me several breathing techniques that have helped me to expand my vocal range. --
My first experience with Barbara was amazing! Her work ethics and professionalism are exceptional as well. I love how comfortable and encouraged she makes one feel. She also seems very knowledgeable and experienced about music. I loved it!
What can I say but it was amazing! Loved her from the beginning. My goal was to sing for my husband at our wedding. He is a very talented singer but I'm not. Barbara helped me find my range so I could sing with confidence and share a special moment with him at our reception. We will be coming back!
I am delighted to write a testimonial on Barbara’s behalf . She has been both my daughters voice coach since 2019. She has helped them grow tremendously in their skill and confidence , and is an incredible teacher that brings understanding of singing even to young children like mine (8 and 12), She has been so devoted to both girls , even prepped and accompanied us to America’s Got Talent ! We are so happy to have found a voice instructor so talented and versatile ! I highly recommend her !
Barbara is amazing. She is really knowledgeable about singing techniques and also brings in some new techniques that I've never tried before. If you can find a spot, I recommend her highly!
Barbara is an excellent musician that pays attention to detail and emphasizes the importance of good training and formal education. She is extremely well versed in vocal training, various types of repertoire, classical and secular styles and piano/accompaniment. She is extremely dedicated and demands excellence and discipline from her students. I would highly recommend her as a music teacher, mentor and vocal coach!
Barbara is a blast!!!! She is very energetic and enjoys working with children. Barbara uses her passion for theatre and the love she has for music, as one of many tools to make her just a unique educator.
