Viviana has done an excellent job in explaining the Italian culture, language use, and pronunciation techniques. She also has a lot of patience with her teachings and is flexible with scheduling as needed.

Ms. Viviana is my second vocal teacher, and by far the best I've ever had. she has helped me in so many ways giving me opportunities that I would have never gotten if it wasn't for her.

Honestly, she is the best teacher I have ever had in my life. She is patient, trust worthy, and actually cares about her students. Their have been many times where I have been so frustrated with my vocal training that I almost wanted to quit. Viviana has made me push myself and showed me that patience is the key in developing a fantastic voice. I promise if she was your instructor you could see how absolutely amazing she is.

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 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.

Viviana is an outstanding teacher. She is competent and professional in transferring her knowledge to her students. I took some lessons from her. She was not only very nice, but also able to teach me singing fundamentals, in a very simple and easy way. I wholeheartedly recommend her to everyone!
