"It is my pleasure to highly recommend Miki Saito as an expert private vocal/piano teacher. The high level of musical development that my daughter has achieved is due to Miki's musical intelligence and accomplished teaching skills. Miki's instruction has enabled my daughter to acquire lead roles in her high school musicals, earn highest "One" ratings at Ohio Music Education Association Solo/Ensemble Contests and pursue a higher education in musical performance. In addition to her musical artistry, Miki also teaches with a positive, uplifting character.
“Miki, You have helped me so much vocally. I can do so much now that I couldn’t do before the voice lessons. Now I am getting noticed by other great singers like Musiq Soulchild. Thank you!!!”
Miki, thank you very much for filling in at the last minute. They couldn’t stop talking about how wonderful your performance was!
"We hired Ms. Saito to perform the music at our son's wedding. She was so friendly and easy to work with. She was very flexible, and worked with my daughter-in-law on a unique and customized entrance and exit for their ceremony. I would highly recommend her services for any event. Not only is her instrumental ability
fantastic, but her vocal skill is of the same quality."
Thank you so much, Miki, for helping me get into Encore (Medina High School Show Choir) and even coming to my audition. You helped me so much vocally over the past year and have been such a wonderful teacher!
Miki Saito did a wonderful job at 2016 Cleveland Asian Festival and really got the crowd invovled! In fact, she BROUGHT much of that crowd!
