    We really can't say enough about how wonderful our experience was having Fred Yacono play music for our wedding ceremony. He was inviting, self-assured, and accommodating throughout the planning and music selection process. He can essentially take any song with a melody and turn it into a beautiful piece of piano music. The emotion and drama he infuses his playing with really takes it to the next level. It was my dream to walk down the aisle to Clair de Lune, and Fred's skilled hands made that dream come true. Fred is also very affordable for the quality of his playing and service. Highly recommend!

    I am so impressed with Fred playing piano during my ceremony, cocktail hour, and wedding!! He truly exceeded our expectations! Fred is incredibly talented and we appreciated how easy it was to work with him. His wonderful communication, attention to detail and professionalism really made it easy to plan. We are particularly impressed with Fred's attention to detail. He met with us 2 times prior to the wedding (once to "get the ball rolling", and the other to visit our venue-truly above-and-beyond service. I also was impressed that Fred took the initiative to reach out to our officiant to iron out any details. It really made the day stress-free. Our guests could not say enough wonderful things about Fred's talent! Thank you so much for helping to make our day so special and unforgettable!!

    Fred was absolutely wonderful! Our ceremony music was one of the last things we booked and we were lucky enough to have the chance to work with him! From our initial conversations to our wedding day - the whole process was a breeze! He was helpful in picking songs and help to stage the flow of the ceremony! We couldn't have asked for a better pianist!
