"Throughout the past four years, Karla has been a volunteer and mentor to our music community by presenting to artists the SHINE ON! workshops and

by serving on several committees to accomplish the projects needed to lift up and promote jazz artists throughout

the Kansas City area."

— Jon McGraw





"I'm not in this just for the income, I do this for the outcome."

I’m an independent music artist committed to giving access to high-quality music programs to students from the underserved communities where I volunteer on a weekly basis, and in the rural communities where I grew up.

For over ten years, I’ve educated hundreds of young, up-and-coming artists and veteran musicians on how to develop their music career to save them time and money but more importantly, how to promote themselves successfully and 'safely' in a digital world.

My goal is to inspire my students, give them the courage to pursue their dreams relentlessly, and provide the insight they need to protect themselves from opportunists in the industry.

Should you have a limited budget, we can work together to apply for an available grant to help cover the costs. The SHINE ON! Workshop and Student Outreach Community Concert can be customized to create an amazing event. Please contact me for a full bio, program details, work samples, and the cost for each program.

I've developed the SHINE ON! Student Outreach Community Concert program to give students a real-life experience to motivate them to pursue their musical passion. They will join me on stage to perform in front of a packed house of their family and friends for a grand concert finale! They'll be taught production, marketing, rehearsal, and performance skills while promoting accountability to others, self-esteem, and a sense of belonging.


Program Option #3

The concert will consist of Karla Bauer performing songs from her latest gospel/jazz albums with four highly skilled Kansas City musicians. She will perform for 45 minutes and the students will then join her on stage to sing with her for 15 minutes for a grand concert finale!

Vocal Workshop(s) - rehearse and instruct students in targeted techniques with easy to learn songs from Karla Bauer's gospel and jazz albums, "My King is Coming" and "Everything Must Change - a Nina Simone tribute" and favorite song selections made by the students

  • Student / Class Participation -  students will create promotional materials, learn how to promote the event, and be given instruction on how to record and live stream the performance. 

  • Student Choir  - attend soundcheck, dress rehearsal, and perform vocal selections along with Karla Bauer and her band as part of the grand concert finale

  • After the Concert Meet & Greet - music artist, musicians, students, parents, and the community
