"We appreciate so much your kindness to Aleks, he was quite honored to be the recipient of your generosity. In fact, that month of lessons that you covered enabled him to make a very fine video performance that doubles as his college audition video and also his entry to certain competitions. The results were:
He became in March 2021 a National Finalist in the MTNA Senior Piano Competition, which as you know means that he won the Michigan State level, also the Division level (Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin);
He was a finalist in the Dubois Competition held at Bowling Green State University in February 2021, a national competition with very high level applicants;
He was awarded complete full rides to Oberlin and Michigan and a very competitive scholarship at Eastman, and is still deciding.
So, your investment in him was incredibly timely and effective, and we thank you very much indeed!"

The holiday season is a time of joy, warmth, and togetherness. It’s a time when families and friends come together to celebrate and create memories that will last a lifetime. One way to make this time even more special is by having a piano in your house.
Fazioli pianos are rare because they are produced in very limited numbers, compared to other piano brands. Fazioli pianos only produce about 140 pianos a year, using the best materials and techniques. The company was founded in 1981 by Paolo Fazioli, who wanted to create the finest grand pianos possible.
