  • 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!
