Giovanna's contagious enthusiasm after my visionary lesson of about 3 hours, and his sincere appreciation for my work as a musician, instantly confirmed that his love of music and his intense passion for studying and teaching were the secret of his fame, for those who have made the "Voice" its work tool.

After extensive search for a new vocal coach, I came across Giovanna in December of 2009. Having had previous experience working with different singers and vocal coaches, I knew from the very first session that I had come across a gem. She is an amazing singer, her voice reminds me of a finely tuned musical instrument. She puts her heart and soul in her profession. Along other great attributes, her sincerity and work ethics keeps bringing me back to her.

I met Giovanna at her beautiful campus she organizes every year in Los Angeles. I will always remember those two months spent with her were I confronted my professional experiences with such a talented artist. Every day I work on some of her "Crossover Singing Method" exercises. A method that I recommend to anyone wishing to undertake the study of singing for the first time, because it explains in a complete and understandable way the correct use of the voice, a delicate instrument to love and respect ... and to those who, like me, love to be always trained to singing.

Aware of the power and importance of the Voice in the Leadership Development processes and the development of potential and profound resources, the connection with Giovanna was unexpectedly created between a departure for Los Angeles and the return to Turin. Our immediate and mutual understanding conversations took shape from the first contact and continue over time as a "Mantra" .. words flow and the Song becomes a hypnotic space thanks to Giovanna's masterful, attentive, scrupulous and stimulating accompaniment. In these years I have developed a harmonious sensitivity and I felt encouraged, supported with delicacy and never judged. "
