My Musical Influences
Both Dr. Fiess and Mr. Wegener express gratitude not only to many fine teachers and performers who have been significant musical influences, but also to the many outstanding colleagues in the Music Teachers Assocations who have enriched and broadened their musicianship and teaching.
I'm a 48 year old new student that is just starting on Piano. Mr Fiess and Mr Wegener are both wonderful professional teachers that I would highly recommend. They have both been very patient, very encouraging and very positive. They take their teaching very serious, but are very kind.

I cannot begin to express how much Dr. Fiess helped our two sons become wonderful classical pianists. Both now are out of college and working. Neither went into music as a career but they still play and have a love of classical music. The boys played Rachmaninoff duets and Dr. Fiess was able to bring out their apparent natural talent. Stephen also became a family friend. Tom and I give him the highest rating as a piano teacher and a person! we are so glad our kids learned piano from Dr. Fiess
