106"I strongly encourage everyone to read this review of the most skilled, professional, and truly passionate pianist that my wife and I could have ever had to celebrate our anniversary night. From the very first moment I spoke with Claudia her professionalism shined. Her performance was a surprise that I arranged for my wife. Claudia was extremely personable and stayed in constant contact with me throughout the planning process. Her performance left my wife in tears of happiness at many points throughout the evening. Without a doubt, we will be hiring Claudia again in the future to perform for us. Thank you, Claudia!!!"  Justin V. - 08/07/2016 - Wedding Anniversary at LeMont Restaurant - Pittsburgh, PA

101"Claudia was wonderful. She played for a group of 80 celebrating my mother's 80th birthday. One of the most important thing a person should know is all the upfront work and preparation Claudia provided us. That would include choosing a list of songs (of which we had 100) and getting them into her program which she provided us and also keeping with the theme. Every time I communicated with her via email she got right back to me. That was great. She answered all my questions and dealt with all my concerns. The music was a wide range and she delivered it with the right emotion and technique. I WOULD DEFINITELY have Claudia back at another affair most certainly." - Bruce K. - 05/21/2016 - 80th Birthday party at the Hickory Heights Golf Club - Bridgeville, PA
100Due to the changes of ownership and exclusion of the piano in the building: "I will certainly miss you continue playing, with the passion that you bring in your performances.

She strove from start to finish to achieve exactly what my husband and I wanted, and also took requests from my mother for the cocktail hour. We had trouble lighting our candles for the candle ceremony, and she was able to transition/repeat songs to cover the issue, without leaving gaps in the ceremony.

She had to stay on me about finalizing my song choices a bit- which was necessary since I had procrastinated until a couple of weeks before the wedding to make the final determinations. Keep in mind when deciding to hire a live musician that you will need to make many decisions and that there are many more details that need considered than you probably realize.

20"I am an event planner, and this is not the first party that I hire this great piano player. Here’s what this client said after his wedding in Pittsburgh (PA): 'Claudia is the consummate professional, a superb pianist and a wonderful performer. Her image and dress are impeccable... She takes care of every detail. I can't tell how much I appreciate all her help and how quickly she has responded to me. Claudia, in this very special day for us your help has made it even better. Thank you so, so much!' " Kevin R.- 06/07/2008 - Wedding - Pittsburgh, PA - Gig ID#: 409115
19"Pianist Claudia was hired for this wedding in Ohio, although there are many piano players closer to them  in Cleveland, Columbus, Toledo, Akron (OH). Nevertheless, she traveled from Pennsylvania, and this is what the bride and groom wrote to her: Her music was an elegant and beautiful way to celebrate our wedding brunch. I contacted Claudia even though she is located out of state and from the first contact I had with her I knew she was the one and only one for our wedding. Her spirit and passion for the piano transcended across the ballroom. Her timing, grace and experience helped create a multitude of wonderful wedding moments. She is amazing and I strongly recommend her to anyone who wants to make their event unforgettable. Claudia, your music truly touched our hearts...thank you for making the journey to us, you and your talents are beyond words."  Karmen B. - 4/5/2008 - Wedding at the Lake Forest Country Club - Hudson, OH - Gig ID#: 326668
18"The best pianist and keyboard player your can get for your private party or event in Pittsburgh (PA) metro area, playing music, from jazz, pop, oldies and classical to tango, new age, romantic latin and ambient music, here she is.

17"This is our experience about cocktail hour pianists or wedding piano performers in Johnstown, Pennsylvania PA, after the search from what we hired this Passionate Pianist: Claudia is beyond the imagination of what you would expect from a professional pianist. She made the effort to preview our event facility, to learn about her audience, and to offer suggestions. She provided the perfect musical backdrop to our event. We recommend Claudia to everybody. We will hire her again without question!.” - Martin J.L. - 3/3/2008 - Corporate function - Johnstown, PA - Gig ID#: 369147 
16"Hiring a professional piano or keyboard performer in Pittsburgh (PA) can be tricky: many students or players with very little experience offer you jazz piano music at a very low rate. We have had bad experiences until we hired the Passionate Pianist for our private celebration in Monroeville (PA). We didn’t chose her based on the price, and: Claudia's performance touched everyone. She is very talented and elegant. We were blessed to have found her and would not hesitate to call on her again.” - Donna S. - 2/18/2008 -  Private celebration - Monroeville, PA - Gig ID#: 363543
15"We organized a Christmas event in Murrysville (Pennsylvania). We wanted an ambient / cocktail pianist. We got the best. So here’s our testimonial: Claudia was truly outstanding for our party.

It was an awesome experience having the Passionate Pianist performance at our event  - James S. - 12/22/2007 - Christmas private party at home - Murrysville, PA - Gig ID#: 342950
14"When it comes to a solo pianist for hire to a Christmas party in Pittsburgh (PA), let me say we had the best keyboard player, that also brought her outstanding portable piano and equipment, to the point we thought we were hearing a real baby grand piano. In summary: She was absolutely awesome!! Her attire was perfect. She played beautifully a wide range of music. Everyone spoke very highly of her and her music. Claudia went far beyond what we had anticipated. Of course, I will hire her again!” - Peter A. - 12/22/2007 - Christmas Celebration at Restaurant - Pittsburgh, PA - Gig ID#: 342947
13"I had to hire a piano player or keyboardist for our corporate function in Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania). I got many proposals, and finally I think we got the best pianist. In a few words: “She was terrific. We were so impressed. So many people came to me expressing how beautiful her music is and how much they enjoyed. She handled all aspects of the gig with the highest level of professionalism and talent.  I would give Claudia the highest recommendation possible!” - Richard H. - 8/17/2007 - Corporate Function - Pittsburgh, PA - Gig ID#: 334679
12"We had to hire a keyboardist player for our birthday party, in Greensburg (PA), and we booked her. What can I say? “Perfection!!!

Claudia, Thank you so much, you have exceeded our expectation in every way.” - Kevin R.- 11/20/2007 -Birthday Party- Greensburg, PA-Gig ID#: 334325
11"In need of Jazz pianists in Pittsburgh (PA)? This is our experience: “Claudia gave a beautiful and elegant performance. Even though she was playing background piano, many times the guests stopped everything just to listen to her. She has a large repertory and was able to accommodate our requests. Her range of music is wider than any other pianist we have heard. We were truly delighted with her music and would encourage anyone who wants to hire an absolutely charming, talented and beautiful pianist for their event to contract with the "Passionate Pianist". For our next event, she is our ONLY choice” - Teresa F. - 7/8/2007 - Private Party - Pittsburgh, PA - Gig ID#: 286209

She is so professional, friendly, elegant and provided the most beautiful background piano music you can imagine. She is the best in every sense! I am speechless! I give her the highest recommendation possible. When you have to choose the pianist for your event, do not tray to save a few dollars hiring someone just because of a low rate. Choose quality (besides, Claudia has very reasonable rates for what she offers). Nobody can compare with the Passionate Pianist!” - Donna S. - 8/8/2007 - Corporate Function - Monroeville, PA - Gig ID#: 297669

8 “During my more than 30 years of experience as an Event Planner and Talent Agent (DC, MD, VA), I hired literally hundreds of background / ambient pianists. So believe me, I make this statement without any doubt: Claudia, the Passionate Pianist, is the best of all whom I have known. She has no comparison in this field. She deserves the highest rating possible. Not only I recommend her, but I encourage everybody to hire her over any other option. For the rest of my career I will never hire another pianist if she is available for my events.” - Kevin R. - 8/16/2007 - Convention - Washington, DC - Gig ID#: 300684
7"We were looking for a background pianist for our Anniversary party in Indiana (PA). We have to say:  “She is the best! Fantastic, terrific! We hired her in an "emergency". The pianist we hired... canceled 2 days before the party! When we decided to hire the Passionate Pianist we thought her price was too much for our budget, but since we didn't have more choices, we went ahead. WOW... what a surprise! We would pay her twice or more the next time, we will save on other items for a party, but we will have Claudia as the background pianist! You have no idea how important is to have this wonderful pianist that creates a warm and relaxed atmosphere. It is the perfect touch that makes your party just perfect. Thank you, Claudia... you are incredible!”  - Heather And Jeremy S. - 8/17/2007 - Anniversary - Indiana, PA - Gig ID#: 301176
