“In my studio I concentrate on healthful singing. My goal is to guide the student to find joy, freedom and personal expression in singing, music making, and speaking - all the while exploring their true self.
I work with students to build a healthy technique for singing jazz, folk, improvisation, music theater, professional speaking and other vocal styles.
Teaching is about listening, patience, understanding and a two-way communication with the student. It is exhilarating to be a part of the students' growing awareness of their body and voice, and to cheer them on as they achieve their vocal goals!”
“The directness of Latz’s delivery is a matter of wised-up, mature consolation, the honesty of shared confidence.”
