Highly recommended music school. Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” - William Butler Yeats . My kid leant musical singing with Sabrina since 8 years old. She is now 11 years old. Sabrina knows way to make lessons fun & enjoyable for kids. She is also a very caring teacher. During class time, Sabrina can always spot any problems. My kid has experienced so much growth in her performance skills, confidence and vocal singing skills. And she is now so interested in musical theatre. I can’t thank her enough to help my shy kid to get this far in singing. “The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.” - William Ward . This is what I would sum up how I feel about Viva school of music. More...

Great music school, really well run by Sabrina who is always enthusiastic, supportive, and well organised. Awesome music teachers who have engaged my children really well and helped them work towards reaching their musical potential.

I believe I commenced lessons with Sabrina sometime during May this year. Moreover, it has not been an incredibly lengthy amount of time yet my singing has improved drastically. I'm honestly in awe. I didn't think it was possible to come so far in such a short space of time but I guess it goes to show: with the right teacher, milestones can be reached! At this rate, I'm very excited to see where my singing is at in a few month's time :) More...

An extraordinary school of music! Run by an incredible, young and vibrant, highly supportive teacher (Sabrina) who brings out the best in her students and goes out of her way to prepare her them for excellent results in AMEB exams.
