My passion is helping you accomplish what you want to do and get you where you want to go. I LOVE teaching and laughing and giggling with my students through every lesson. I am intensely interested in how the voice works and presents itself in each new student.

* I have performed in and can teach anyone to sing in any style including classical, Broadway, opera, jazz, pop, and choral

* I have taught voice on the University level at four different universities: BYU-Provo, USU, BYU-Idaho, & FSU

* I am a Member of NATS (National Association for Teachers of Singing) and support and uphold the standards expected from one affiliated with the organization.

I look forward to working with you and helping you become the singer you’ve always wanted to be!

Marti Castle-Warr is a dedicated vocal pedagogue who has had complete Master's and Doctoral training in voice and vocal pedagogy. She understands the voice in great detail and is anxious to help her students develop their own abilities. She has had significant experience as a singer and soloist in varied styles. She has also taught voice for many years to students of all levels, including university voice majors. She is very informative, yet practical in bringing about results. Her knowledge of the voice and her understanding of people enable her to teach very effectively..

Marti teaches a very sensible, progressive approach, well-based in best-knowledge of physiology and acoustic, combined with practical, traditional approaches. She works especially well with young developing voices. She has good experience with coaching traditional classical languages - Italian, Frenh, and German.

Marti is absolutely amazing! I never knew I had this voice inside of me. She has constantly worked to bring out the best in me, helping me to learn the best techniques to get the most out of my voice and giving me confidence in my own abilities. She recognizes that your emotional, mental, and physical state all tie in to bringing your best voice to the surface. I've always been a good singer, but after Marti, people think I've been professionally trained and I've never received so many compliments. She is a great teacher and has also become a great friend!

She is great and has helped me slot. I can now sing on pitch and hear that tune in my head.
