Praise from voice students

"Amy Biondo has a very special way of setting a warm inviting tone when she teaches, allowing even the shiest of singers like myself to open up and feel truly supported. Filled with inspiration after our first voice lesson, I sat in my car and wrote a poem. Later Amy taught me how to simplify the process of converting my poems into songs. In just the short time I’ve spent with her she has helped me to discover my voice in ways I didn’t know were possible. I am forever grateful to her and her excellence in voice coaching." - Úna Hager 

"Amy is incredibly warm and makes music accessible to anyone. She is nurturing my daughter’s love of singing, but more importantly, she is nurturing her as a person and building her self-esteem. Highly recommend!" - Jenny McGuire

“I have so much gratitude for how you relate with my teenage son and how your playful interactions uplift and cheer him up. His work with you has increased his confidence in being who he is and manifesting in the world in a way that feels true to him. Thank you for bringing out the magic in my child!” - Nik Maslow

"I take voice lessons from Amy and can vouch that she is amazing, truly. ❤️ I love my lessons and wish I could take them every day!" - Sarah Colomina Goran

“Amy Biondo has an innate ability to guide others to find their voice; to connect with themselves, to relax and embrace the voice and the body, allowing everything to work together. Though I’ve just begun working with her, in a short time I have discovered much about myself and I’m feeling increased confidence in using my voice, for all kinds of things, including singing." - KFD

Praise from vocal workshop participants

"Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! For the first time in many moons I slept peacefully and uninterrupted  through the entire night! Your guidance in this practice led me to such a place of relaxed freedom of expression that I literally felt the weight of the dark, quarantine "anxiety cloud" that I had been carrying around for so long lifting and drifting away. The feeling of openness brought me to such a much needed sense of relief, that I am so looking forward to experiencing this beautiful gift again and again." - Jeanine Brunetti

 

“Loved it!  Totally unexpected and wonderfully liberating.” - Jason

Praise from the audience

"We hired Milestone for our wedding reception in Vail where we had about 110 guests. Having a great band was one of the most important things when we were planning our wedding, and Milestone went above and beyond our expectations. This is no ordinary wedding cover band – The Milestone Band are truly talented and versatile musicians. We had a smaller trio play light jazz music during cocktail hour, and then expanded to a 7-piece band with horns when it was time for dancing to begin. They had all ages out on the dance floor enjoying themselves, and we received so many compliments from our guests about how amazing the band was. As the bride, I couldn’t tear myself away from the dance floor – I was having so much fun! In addition, Ricardo was easy to work with and responsive to all of my questions. I highly recommend Milestone and would hire them again in a heartbeat!" - Jaclyn (Bride)

"Milestone is the most incredibly talented group of artists that not only provides quality service, but creates an atmosphere that is exceptionally fun! There wasn't a soul at our wedding that could keep themselves off of the dance floor! I can honestly say that Milestone made our reception party unforgettable, giving us our "once in a lifetime" day. They were so wonderful, in fact, that guests at the wedding were asking how to hire them!! Mark is also extremely easy to work with. He gave us all we wanted and more: song requests, brilliant play list to thrill each and every guest no matter their age, as well as being extremely welcoming and accepting of some last minute changes. Mark Diamond and Milestone made our party what it was; a joyous celebration of music, dancing, laughter, and love. The perfect band for anyone's perfect day!" - Annalise (Bride)

“Amy Biondo may not be Latina by birth, however, her heart beats Latin rhythms as she has been enamored by the music of América Latina all her life and her singing is the ideal addition to the group, reminiscent of the albums of Eydie Gormé with Trio Los Panchos…

"The harmonizing of Ricardo, Amy and Ed [is] seamless… Los Bohemios inject freshness to their renditions that will captivate even the most discerning listeners… [the album is] superb from start to finish. This is an auspicious debut for a group that evokes romance and at times makes you want to get up and dance.” - Arturo Gomez, Music Director of KUVO, on Los Bohemios' self-titled album

“Our guests were entranced, they were tapping their feet, they were laughing and moved by the music, and by the friendly conversational style of Amy and the musicians, that brought everyone into the light of family and enjoying the music together. Our guests requested several songs, and Amy knew them all. Afterward, we received several notes of appreciation from our guests for that unforgettable evening. Thanks, Amy!” - Shelley Schlender
