Voice & Piano Lessons


Susan Amisano, a graduate of Ithaca College School of Music, founded Amisano Studios in 1985. The home studio began with neighborhood children, but soon grew to include students from Elmira, Corning, Horseheads and Pennsylvania. Today students, from elementary school to adults, come from all over the Southern Tier to learn to sing or play piano.

“My purpose in teaching is to encourage and develop the innate musical talent of every student – to help them reach their potential.” Susan Amisano

While learning musical skills, students also learn physical co-ordination, poise and self-discipline. Lessons are taught in a nurturing environment that fosters self-confidence and improves the ability to learn.

Piano students learn to play, using traditional methods, as well as experimenting with jazz and improvisation techniques. All types of music are explored.

Voice students learn healthy techniques to support and control the voice. Language skills, memorization, sight-reading and stage crafts are also part of the program.

The students of Amisano Studios have won numerous awards and scholarships to colleges and musical programs. Many students of Susan Amisano have gone on to careers in music and the arts. She is grateful to be able to pass on her knowledge and love of music to the next great generation of musicians.
