About Glenda

After studying at Cass Tech High School and Wayne State University in MI, I have enjoyed teaching privately, in groups, and at churches, I have performed vocally and instrumentally throughout the US and in 8 foreign countries, and taught at public, charter, and private schools. It is important to tailor each lesson to a student's individual needs and ability to ensure that their experience is as rewarding as possible!

Chenyu Z.

Madison Heights, MI

About Chenyu

Hi there! Thanks for visiting my profile :)

Every 7-8 months, I host recitals for my students to perform in front of family and friends. Parents loved the previous recitals from May 2016 and January 2017. This gives students the opportunity to display their talents and hard work in a formal setting. Recitals are optional, for all instruments, and will be held at the Piano Place in Troy.

I have a Master's degree in Social Work and love building relationships with clients and empowering people. I currently still take piano & drum lessons from accomplished music teachers to continue learni
ng techniques to pass on to my students...I believe a great teacher never stops being a student.

**I no longer travel to students' homes for lessons, so please choose the option to take lessons at my apartment/studio. Thanks!**

I look forward to hearing from you,
Chenyu

We introduced ourselves and planned for what we would discuss in future lessons. However, she did not have her computer with her so we couldn't get into any details so I am withholding judgement until we have had a chance to work together

I love Viviana!! She makes you feel very comfortable throughout the entire lesson. She tries to help you relax if you've had a long day and to loosen up and prepare for singing. The lessons are always very fun, full of lots of jokes, yet very productive and helpful as well. Amazing instructor!!

I would highly recommend any lessons with her!

I am happy to share my good fortune of finding a remarkable voice instructor, Viviana Garabello. I have been singing my whole life, and at 66 years old I believe Viviana to be the first person to ever help me understand how my voice actually works. In addition she is able to listen to me and tell me exactly what I need to do to produce the sound that will allow my own personal voice to come out.

I have sung in numerous groups throughout my life including the Dearborn Community Chorale, Vanguard Voices and Brass and The Henry Ford Community College Chorale; and cantored at St. Thomas Aquinas church for 12 years. I performed solos and lead parts in all of those groups, however, I was never able to consistently produce the voice that I wanted to during that time.

I am now convinced that I have met in Viviana someone who can help me accomplish this goal. Because I have developed many bad vocal habits my challenge is to create new techniques that will allow me to develop new muscle memory to replace the old restrictive muscle memory that prevents me from allowing my voice to flow forth naturally.

Most importantly Viviana is able to listen to my voice and help me to listen to my voice to identify what technique I need to employ to produce a desired sound. She has a comprehensive knowledge of the physical structure of the body that produces sound and is able to communicate to me exactly what I need to do for me to produce an unencumbered sound that brings forth my true voice.

I now work on breath support, tone development and vocal music every day because there is nothing more satisfying to me than singing freely without self imposed restrictions in my voice. My quality of life has improved immeasurably because of my association with Viviana.
