What People Are Saying

PiaToscano "I can honestly say that Michael and Peisha are the reason I was able to make it through American Idol. My first performance on Idol 'I'll Stand by You,' was only as successful as it was because of the direction from both Michael and Peisha. Throughout my entire time on the show they pulled the best out of me, it was not until I started working with them did I truly start to realize the full potential of my vocal range as they continued to not only to coach me, but to also challenge me for every performance. Working with Michael and Peisha not only improved my vocal ability immensely, it also instilled in me a confidence that I did not have before I started working with them."
