“My Mother had contacted Ian Garrett… a fantastic classical singer and a kind, enthusiastic voice teacher, Ian would prove to be helpful more than once in my youth… One exercise after the other, drill after drill of scales, breathing, combinations, interval gymnastics, pronunciation, repetition…. and I was physically exhausted after each lesson… At the end of each lesson, Ian would relax the mood, I think sensing my itch to sing with less instruction and allow me a freestyle vocal exercise for which I could choose a song from a pile of his sheet music.”

~ Shania Twain, from her autobiography titled “From This Moment On”
