I am so proud of my continued support of the Harrison and new city school of music with the education of my son. The school instructs and teaches music but the self esteem and confidence that is learned are the most important part of my sons character that is being built. The director, staff and teachers are simply the best I’ve ever dealt with. PROFESSIONAL all the way. Thank you for all you have done and continue to provide my family.  – Timothy M. Hauser

We loved the destination recital at the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. It was an amazing venue and a great opportunity for the students to perform there and see the stars showcased. It was very well organized and it all went so smoothly on the day. Thanks for a great weekend – Aileen Cleary

Jonathan, my wife and I want to thank all the staff and instructors at both the New City School of Music and the Harrison School of Music for all they did to make this once in a lifetime experience a reality for our son Jonathan ( who played Johnny B. Goode) and all the students. I wanted to extend a special thank you to Sam, Nicole, Juan, Nick and Gracilano for their outstanding talent, performances and support in making all the students sound and feel like “Rock Stars”! – Raymond Terjeseon

The New City school of music has made my daughters dreams come true! Leah has been going to the school for four years learning to play the violin was a dream of hers since she was three years old. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame experience was truly an amazing experience she was smiling from beginning to end and she is still talking about it! It pushed her to practice and get better at her craft. Sam and the band was amazing they made her feel so comfortable, I have never seen her so happy and in her element. My husband and I were filled with so much emotion and joy watching her perform it was such a beautiful experience and all the children were amazing. A truly once in a lifetime experience! Thank you to Sam, the band, Miss Ruby and all of the New City music school family. – Nicole Fabrizi

It was a great stage experience to my kid. – Fabio Marconi

I was blown away by how well all the students performed. They all seemed to genuinely enjoy themselves. I think this can be attributed to the schools’ efforts to prepare them with lots of time and practice. The performances were also enhanced by having the schools’ instructors (who are all accomplished, professional musicians) accompany the students with a backup band and singer. Consequently they went in with confidence and it showed. It was also loads of fun for the audience! – Cathy Foley

This destination recital celebrated Maurice and the teachers – it cultivated a spirit of community and family. Having both schools in concert – we felt part of the Harrison School family. Sam’s vision to promote music in this setting empowered all performers with confidence ! Thank you for being a leader in designing and developing unique recitals and memories. – Dr. Pauline Mosley

I was there as an audience guest, not as a parent or relative of a student. I think that it was fabulous from beginning to end. Having the teachers participate as a back up band and singer added additional energy, excitement, and humor to the show; their love for music and teaching was very evident as they patted backs or fist bumped each student when they finished performing. Seeing the teachers play and sing gave evidence to the high caliber of professionalism, music ability, and knowledge that they are sharing with the students. From start to finish, this was a 5-star show! – Andrea Marsello

We are overjoyed by our daughter’s performance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland,Ohio. I was blown away by the concert that the students put on. These kids have a lot of potential! The performance were incredible, and it’s precious to witness the youngsters acquire confidence and express themselves on stage. With the inspiration and guidance of Samuel Faraci, the Harrison School of Music will grow and flourish with great prosperity. Thank you so much to Harrison School of Music and all of the wonderful instructors for all of your hard work, devotion, and love for our children. The entire team went above and beyond to ensure that the event was vibrant and exciting. – Evelyne Celis
