Cheers, Anna Endorsements by STSANY members and fellow performers: Anna Bartos is not only a superb singing teacher (she knows her music), she is an equally excellent coach, which is a rarity among singing teachers. She is also capable of imparting many helpful nuggets of information about the process of singing and performing that one doesn't usually receive from one's teacher. I found her instruction of enormous value.___. Paul, V., NYC actor and playwright. It was a wonderful session w/ a warm, knowledgeable & insightful instructor & in great company!____Allyson, Member, STSANY Great session; good, helpful feedback; supportive.____Barbara, Member, STSANY The MUSICALE was a wonderfully diverse program in an intimate setting. I found the preliminary workshops extremely helpful in putting a role I'd worked on (for longer than I'd like to say) into a historical, musical, and linguistic framework. I am eager to do more! Anna Bartos is knowledgeable about a broad range of musical styles and genres, acting and character development as well as singing. I would definitely like to perform in this type of event again. For me, once a season would be good (3-4 times a year)."____Rebecca, Member of STSANY (Musicale on 1/19/14)
