Dino is an exceptional pianist! He is responsible, reliable and punctual. In addition, his piano playing is unmatched. He has performed with my company, Luminous Sounds, Inc. when clients are interested in having a pianist for cocktail hour and everyone has raved about his performances. I can't recommend him enough!
Dear Dino, Thanks for playing at my son Michael’s wedding. You played a great selection of songs and were even able to take requests from our guests. The volume in the room was perfect. I will highly recommend you to all our family and friends and look forward to using your services again in the near future. Thanks, Gary and Lynn Giustiniani

I was the band leader/owner of the highly successful group Triangle Times Orchestra for over 20 years. This 10 piece group performed at weddings and corporate events and featured five lead singers and a three-piece horn section. In our prime we were booked three years in advance. Now I perform at parties, wedding ceremonies, etc. I hold a Master's Degree in Music and am the author of the book, "The Art of Effective Piano Teaching," which is used in colleges and universities across the country.
Additional Booking Notes
If a piano is not readily available, I will bring my keyboard set up at no additional cost.
