If your son/daughter would like to take voice/piano lessons over the summer, please email me at braden.pontoli@avonlakecityschools.org and we can discuss vocal instructors and piano instructors that would be a good fit.

Mr. Pontoli in Collaboration with Morrisondance

Typically I do not share other events or music groups that I am a part of, but I know many of my students dance and this will be a very unique performance. I have been commissioned to compose and perform music live with Morrisondance for a program entitled “In The Space of Dreams” which will take place at the Cleveland Public Theater June 1-3.
