They do not come more professional than Vivian Gayle. Viv has been a guest at MAMT since we opened and every visit is the highlight of the academic calendar. His performance credits and attitude towards the students are exemplary and every time he visits, we receive fantastic feedback from whichever group he works with. His care for the performers of the future as well as his knowledge and experience in the industry make him a firm favorite. We look forward to working with you again soon Viv!.
