Testimonial by Marge Novak
The Cappelli Institute of Music has been a part of our family’s life for almost a decade. Both our sons Max and Gabriel have taken piano lessons with John Gibbons and Jeff Cappelli. Walk through the door and you encounter a peaceful, civilized place filled with the sounds and sights of students earnestly trying to improve their musical skills while unknowingly their very selves.

Studying with Jeff has been really enjoyable because of the insight he brings to our music and the challenges he sets forth in developing and perfecting our choices. Striving for that goal is part of the fun in studying and once it's been achieved, what a great sense of accomplishment!
