SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CBS 8) - Be prepared to be amazed by the flying fingers and charismatic stage presence of the Pizarro Brothers. Fourteen-year-old Dominic and 11-year-old Angelo have been a piano duo for three years. Their contrasting styles make for a perfect blend.

"Actually, I'm better with riffing. He's better with sight reading," Angelo said.

"He's the wild one. I'm more conservative," Dominic said.

"Jerry Lee Lewis was a big influence for me," Angelo said.

Their music came from mom.

"I went to the performing arts school in Southeast San Diego, did a lot of singing and playing the guitar," Ilene Pizarro said.

And even though she's watched her boys connect with a keyboard since they were 3, Ilene is still amazed by their synchronicity.

"I'm very much in awe all the time. They surprise me every single time," Ilene said. "They just have this love for it. A lot of times I have to drag them off the piano."

When it comes to numbers, the Pizarro brothers can play anything from classic to jazz and do it with a flair far beyond their years.

"The sky's the limit for these boys. They love the arts and I think that's awesome," Ilene said.

And these brothers who play together plan to stay together.

"Like one of our teachers said, 'You have to compliment the other,'" Dominic said.

"You have to make the other one look good and then trust that the other one will do the same thing to you,'" Angelo said.

Genetically linked by their love of music and respect for each other's ability, the Pizarro Brothers will be amazing audiences for a lifetime to come.
