Your Stories

 

I love hearing from the Voice Lessons To Go™ community!

Many of the stories I hear are a true inspiration and are what motivate me to keep building and improving the Voice Lessons To Go™ products. So write and tell me your stories: Why you bought these CDs, what kind of singer you are, how you use Voice Lessons To Go™, what your experiences were with them, where you practice with them, etc.

I will post some of them right here, on this page - they may just be what motivates and inspires someone else, too!

Hi Ariella,

November 25th, 2015

Slowly, slowly I've been adapting myself to your practice, and that's probably a good thing. I took an interest in singing about the time I found your CD at the library. The only had Volume #1. I downloaded it and practiced with it haphazardly for about three years or so. Meanwhile, my interest in singing has only grown. Last year I bought the complete set and have been practicing with it and am now using all four of the cd's. I'm also searching for the next step. I enrolled in a singing course at a local college and am getting to work with a group of people for the first time. The time with the accompanist at the piano is a treasure. I've made some connections and will have a pianist to work with as I build my song portfolio. I want to become a jazz singer. I'm not sure what my next move will be but I've found that action, any action is usually beneficial. Thank you for your great service. I've had private lessons but your cd's are sustainable while the lessons are not. I'd love to get an assessment from you. I'd like to hear what you think I might do to help continue to grow and make progress as a singer. I'd also like to make a CD that would be more reflective of my own voice and would be more of a consistent challenge. Happy Thanksgiving. Best wishes, Samuel

Hi Samuel,
Thank you for sharing your story with me. I am so happy that my CDs are helping you to find your own voice. I love to hear from people that use them. I will be excited to hear you sing if you do an Assessment with me. I actually live near you, so maybe one day you can take lessons with me for real! :)
Happy holidays
Ariella Vaccarino

  • Coming into singing at a late age

    July 10th, 2008

    Ariella, I was going to contact Amazon about making contact with you when lo and behold I turned your cd over and saw your e-mail address. My wife past away 6/05 and since then I have tried to find something, somehow that would help me occupy my time other than work. Although I’m 72, I still work about 60 hours per week in the evening. It’s during the day that things get difficult so this past May I sat down and made a list of what I would enjoy doing, something I wanted to do all my life. It turned out that singing topped the list. I figured even at my age I’d find enjoyment in singing, since I do love all types of music. I started searching the internet for material and one of the first things I came across were your Voice Lessons To Go volumes. I found a vocal teacher here in Vegas who would put up with an old codger like me. Told her that my goal was to learn the techniques of singing and be able to do that for simply the pleasure of knowing “I Can Do That” and nothing more. I’ve really enjoyed my weekly sessions and look forward to them. However, even though I do the exercises given to me and am working on a few songs it is your cd’s that are the foundation to my daily (and I do mean a minimum of at least once a day) vocal preparation. I thank you for the fine job that you have done in preparing these cd’s. They are outstanding. That includes even the little giggle that you let out when you are speaking about the difficulty in flapping ones lips “over and over again”. I thought I’d pass on this pat on the back on and tell you to keep up the good work— I know I should have turned your cd’s over sooner, but— dick borghi

  • Enjoying Voice Lessons To GO

    July 15th, 2008

    Purchased Voice Lessons TO GO, and found it to be exactly what I was looking for!!
    Even though I have been researching and looking around for years, using and listening to many different cds, yours is superb.
    Your clarity in teaching and leading me through the exercises is exceptional!
    And your voice is very refined and VERY pleasant to listen to.
    I hope that you come out with more instructional cds.
    As a teacher myself(in a different art), I really appreciate your skill. You are a model instructor!!
    Best wishes to You,

  • I notice such a great improvement in my voice…

    July 31st, 2008

    I cannot begin to say how absolutely superb your CD’s are. I have been taking voice lessons for years. I have been singing since age 5 and I have never- I mean never, been so engaged and excited about practicing. Your CD’s are challenging and exciting. You are an excellent teacher. I notice such a great improvement in my voice since using your CD’s. Thank you so much. Singing is my love and I thank you for giving me the means to love it even more. You are very gifted. Keep up the good work Ariella!

  • Using Voice Lessons To Go to supplement my lessons

    March 17th, 2009

    I bought the first CD of the VLTG series a few days ago, and just had a chance to run through it for the first time. I just wanted to tell you how great I think these exercises are! I have always wanted to be a great singer, but I’ve never been able to sing higher than my “talking voice” without my voice cracking or having to resort to a papery-thin falsetto. I recently started taking professional voice lessons, and I thought your CD would be great workouts for in between my weekly practices. I must say, even just go! ing through the disc once, I really felt my upper register starting to free up, and I actually nailed some of the high notes without my larynx moving up and choking off the note – something I’ve been battling forever now. I am eager to show my voice teacher your lessons, as I think you both have a similar approach and this product really complements my in-person lessons perfectly. You seem like a very kind and knowledgeable person so I feel comfortable and at-ease when listening to your lessons. You can count on me buying the next CDs in the series as my skills progress. With so many gimmicky voice lessons programs out there these days, it’s refreshing to find your series. Thank you so much! Regards, Luke Portland, Oregon

    Ariella, Thank you for putting out the voice lessons to go cd collection. Your stamina cd is incredible! I use it every day and my support and endurance is already improved. This is by far, the best warmup disc I have ever bought! Aziza Poggi Rock singer and Aspiring Operatic Mezzo-Soprano

    March 17th, 2009

    Hello Ariella, I have been using your CDs for several months and I am so excited about learning to sing. (starting at 60!) My husband is a classical/jazz guitarist and plays the piano also. We are getting a group together to sing and play world music, starting with some Celtic and Middle Eastern. I have two questions for you; how do you find the right voice teacher? Do you have any referrals in the Santa Cruz, CA area? Thank you so much for your CDs. Molly Horn

    “Thank you so much for your CD’s! My mother-in-law and I have been pining over them since we got ‘em. Thank you so much for being so willing to share your passion with us. And your way of teaching the lessons is totally absorbing! You’ve definitely had a hand in motivating me to nourish my love of singing more vigorously. I’m even writing down all the little tidbits you give us to remember, like visualizing the notes going in a straight line, and anchoring then stretching down deep for support and high for the resonance of the note. Again, thank you so very much! You’re a gem!”

  • Thank you from a band singer!

    October 31st, 2009

    Hello Beautiful Ariella! I just wanted to send you a quick note to say an enthusiastic “Thank You!” for making a big and beautiful difference in my life!! I have used other vocal warm-ups, and most of them have helped me, but yours have pushed me to a new level of singing! My vibrato, stamina, tone, resonance and breathing have gotten stronger and stronger with regular use of your CDs. I think they’re amazing CDs, they continue to help me, and I recommend them to anyone who asks me about vocal warm-ups. I perform in a band regularly and the compliments I receive since using your CDs (around 8 months now) are along the lines of “your voice is so beautiful, strong and polished”! These are the compliments that I work hard for every day when I practice! I keep getting better as a singer and it’s so exciting to experience myself progressing at the rate I am- I know I have you to thank. My favorite CD is the Stamina CD and the breathing portion of the first CD. When I do these exercises, I can sing for two hours plus! I used to only be able to sing for 30 minutes before I gave out- huge difference! I also appreciate your tips and notes along the way, each time I do your exercises, I feel myself opening up a little deeper into the learning process…my body naturally responds to these exercises and goes a little deeper each time. I am so much more in touch with the importance of the health of my core and my lungs. In short, you have helped my life so much, because singing and songwriting is my greatest passion, and your CDs have made me a much better singer, for the prices of a couple of CDs- it’s incredible. Thank you, thank you, thank you! You are an incredibly intelligent & articulate teacher- I just think the world of you. You are truly the best and I hold you in my heart!

  • I've worked my way through all four of your CDS!

    January 26th, 2010
    Ariella, I’d like to share how your CDs have motivated and improved my singing. Over the past 18months I’ve purchased each of the 4 in turn. Completing one to a level of competency before moving on to the next. Now I go back and continue the cycle finding new ways to establish a practice routine with your music as the aide. I am waiting for that 5th CD!!! Or better still ‘Specialty CDs’ such as one devoted to my passion … R&B It would be great now that I have the basics to run through some songs from Motown and Stax – focus on the vocal moves between the 1 and 4 which is a bit unusual; and the Runs that you describe in your BLOG. Something to consider — I believe Specialty CDs would sell well. Best regards, ….Gary
    Hi Gary,
    It is so great to hear back from singers who use my CDs. I think it is great that you have worked your way through all four of my CDs. Thanks for the suggestion regarding a 5th CD. I am working on a couple of new ones right now, once I get those out I will consider other CD ideas and keep your in mind. I dont believe I have ever given you a Vocal Assessment, I would love to hear where your voice is at and answer any particular questions you may have. Good luck!

  • Can I sit in my car while singing your CDs?

    January 26th, 2010

    Last night I downloaded volume 1 on iTunes and I am very excited to fulfill this life-long dream. However, I hope that I don’t have to be standing to practice. I want to train during my commute; I can’t sing at home because I want to surprise my wife with a personal concert for her birthday. Will sitting while I practice hinder my progress?- Hector


    Hector,
    So glad to hear you are going to be singing for your wife. Standing is optimum for singing but second best is sitting straight and strong in your chair- no slouching.
    That is often how choirs rehearse. Good luck with it all!

    Hi Ariella,
    Are you in New york and if so how can i get in touch with you?


    Hi,
    No, I am based in Los Angeles. I teach private lessons and love to listen to and work with new voices. The other option I can offer you is studying with me through my Vocal Assessment program. You send me a link or mp3 of your voice with your questions and I can help you through that means.

    My dearest Ariella I purchased your series last year, after loosing my voice and my confidence to sing out in front of others. I have recently gained the top notes of my voice back again and although they are still a little wobbly at times my range had increased dramatically and i am singing in front of people again, much to the amazement of friends and family who never knew i could! Thank you for your wonderful program.
    Yours Laura


    Laura,
    You have brightened my day. I made Voice Lessons To GO for people just like you who wanted to sing out. I hope you continue to build confidence in your singing. May I suggest pushing yourself further and going and doing some Karaoke or even taking an improvisational acting class? These are some great thing that can help you peel some more layers off of any public performing anxiety. Keep Singing!- Ariella

  • My voice is toning like an athlete would with your CDs.

    August 10th, 2010

    Ariella, I just wanted to say Thank You for a great vocal instruction lesson on disc. I purchased the first disc on Ebay about 6 weeks ago, and I have to say I’ve progressed more using your lessons than any other I’ve used so far. Your simple, relevent instructions really do work and I can really tell that my range and technique improved! Between the vocal excersizes and the breathing development I can really feel the toning as an athlete would. So, Thank You again and good luck to YOU on all of your endevours, you are an angel.


    Hi Jason,
    Thank you for your kind words. I really love to hear back from people that are using my CDs. You are on the right track. These vocal exercises done well and built up over time without pushing or straining will strengthen you abilities as a singer. Happy to hear from you!

  • Mother of singer who reads Ariella’s Vocal Notes.

    March 1st, 2011

    Hi Ariella. I am not a singer. I am a mother of a singer/performer who is 11 years old. I’d like to tell you that I started reading some of your blogs and really enjoyed them. Your kindness shows through. Thank you for a wonderful resource.
    Thank you for your kind words. It takes a lot to be a mommy of a young singer. I remember how my parents had to sit through all the singing competitions I was in- so stressful.
    Both my parents came to all my shows, encouraged all my auditions and performances. It meant so much to me to have my parents be my support system. They new when to step away from me when I was stressed and crazed before a performance and how to comfort me after the disappointments of rejection.
    It really means so much to a performer to have a tight circle of support around them. The industry is very difficult and filled with many people who are not kind.

  • Success doing your CDs on my drive to works

    March 1st, 201

    Hello Ariella,
    I bought the first CD just before Christmas. I began doing the exercises 4-5 times a week during my drive to work. Within the first week I was beginning to sing on key for the first time in my life. I have been working on it ever since and I can’t believe how good my voice sounds now. It only took 53 years.

    I bought the first CD just before Christmas. I began doing the exercises 4-5 times a week during my drive to work. Within the first week I was beginning to sing on key for the first time in my life. I have been working on it ever since and I can’t believe how good my voice sounds now. It only took 53 years.

    Thanks Joe! Great to hear from you! (I am currently setting up a voice lesson with Joe who will be near me on a business trip next month! Looking forward to hearing you live Inserting Picture...

    Thanks ariella for your valuable information on your site. I just read about being an unique singer and ideas for where one can perform. I am living here in Bloemfontein in south africa and take singing lessons and it looks like we start training for opera. I hope I still get good opportunities once I completed this training sure.

    Good luck Charles,

  • Using your CDs for therapy!

    August 21st, 2013
    Hello. Bought “Voice Lessons To Go” about a year ago. Just finished lesson two today and just had to look you up and thank you for helping a 61 year old country boy like me. Using the voice lessons every day now as a normal part of my day of therapy training for my PTSD. To take the time to explain how this is working for me would have to be for another day if that would be of interest to you. Becoming totally disabled six years ago from an (open book pelvis crush with two body detachments and degloved right foot) at work. I died six times. I have a new life now going in a different direction and singing is a very big part of it. Looking back going forward i’ve realized I suffered from self made disabilities. Believing I couldn’t sing is one example of that truth. Wishing well to you and your family. God bless…. Jonathan and my dog Franky


    Hi Jonathan,
    Well first of all, thank God you are alive and well. I am so happy to be a small part of the joy in your day. I really appreciate your kind words. I think singing can be extremely healing. I wish you the best.

  • Goal to sing with my guitar playing

    September 20th, 2013

    Hello Ariella, I just wanted to tell you that I purchased your entire 4 DVD set and have been using it in my commute back and forth to work (minus the 1st CD because I was afraid I might pass out while driving ((I do that back at my place))… hah! But anyway- I’ve already noticed a HUGE improvement and am super grateful. I can only imagine how much stronger my pitch and voice will get in a few months from now. I would like to eventually see a teacher in person because like you said it would probably help me improve much quicker. I have a very solid background in basic music theory and would consider myself at a beginner/intermediate singing level. My goal would be to be able to play with an acoustic guitar and have the quality and pitch control of my voice sound professional and very pleasing (find my own voice). I’m located in CA … are you in California? If not once I practice for a while longer maybe I can use your vocal assessment feature. Thanks again for the great lessons. -Keith C


    Hi Keith,
    It was great reading your email. I loved hearing your story. I am so glad my CDs have helped you! I will send you more info on lessons with me!
    Take care

  • I listen to you every day!

    March 27th, 2014

    Hi Ariella!

    I just wanted to drop by and say a big Thank You for your work on those cds. You did an amazing job. I literally hear your voice every day especially those breathing exercises on the first CD. It’s helped in so many aspects of my life including speaking, singing and really just everyday life conversation in having a strong, confident voice

    So, again, thank you for having such a charming personality that I can stand to listen to those tracks over and over again day after day!

    Keep it up!

    Regards,
    Palvinder


    Great to hear from you Palvinder. I am so happy my CDS are helping you with your whole voice. It’s so funny and awesome for me to think that people listen to me as part of a regular routine in their lives.
    Take care!-Ariella
