Jeff is a great musician and he's an even better teacher! He makes it fun and entertaining, while he teaches you the chords and tabs. He can teach you all different types of genres. I'd give Jeff 2 thumbs up and highley recommend.
I took two years of Mary Wagner's group piano class at Saguaro High School. I am a percussionist and planned on going into Music Education at the time, and thought it would be worth my time to also learn piano. Mary is definitely the best piano teacher in the area. I played so much piano literature, and progressed extremely well under her instruction. She not only made sure I could play songs, but she made sure I had the knowledge and understanding of what I was reading. She did more than just improve my piano skills; she improved my musicianship. I'm now at ASU's School of Music studying Music Education, and even tested out of first semester piano; and my music theory class isn't a big challenge. Also, my sight-reading skills on mallet percussion are quite good. All of that is a direct result of studying under Mary. I've seen her work with all different levels of students, and all of her students achieve success in some way. Studying under Mary will make you a great pianist and musician. I truly believe that if you want to learn piano and are in the area, definitely go to Mary for lessons!
Although I've been playing violin since I was 8 years old, I haven't taken a formal lesson since college - over 20 years ago! Because of a demanding work schedule, I also stopped playing for 3 years in a row. When my schedule finally changed and I was ready to play again I decided to audition for a community orchestra. I was more than a little rusty and my confidence was shaky so I sought a violin teacher and came across Lali through a friend of a friend. How fortunate for me that I found Lali. She made me feel comfortable during my first lesson and provided a safe environment for me to work in. She immediately began correcting some bad habits in my bow hand, helped me with fingering and shifting, and got me back in shape for those tricky 3-octave scales. She picked out a great piece for me to learn for the solo part of the audition one that showcased my strengths and was fun to play. Lali also gave me a few dress rehearsals for the audition she acted as judge, gave me music to sight read, asked me to play scales, gave feedback after I performed my solo and the audition pieces. I was well prepared for the audition. Im happy to say that I was offered a seat in the orchestra and I do attribute my success to Lali. If you are an adult player who hasnt taken lessons in recent years, I highly suggest Lali Breen!
I am SO thrilled with Soul Impression! Greg is very professional, helped me plan. Had great ideas. His music was amazing. He is great! I will definitely contact him again for any future party.

I highly recommend Soul Impression for ANY party!!!! Thank you Kena Manfredi
I am delighted to recommend Maryanne Kremer-Ames as a guitar teacher. She is simply wonderful. I feel that studying with her has made me not just a better guitarist but also a better musician, as my ear for music has steadily developed in a way that allows me to appreciate all kinds of music more deeply. After going through four guitar teachers in seven years, I finally found Maryanne and have never looked back. I can truly say that since studying with Maryanne, I have learned how to Improve the quality of sound I get from my guitar Get the most out of my practice time Phrase the music I am learning so I am truly making music instead of just hitting the right notes Conquer difficult passages by breaking them down into smaller chunks so I can more readily identify the underlying problem that is holding me back Lock in the correct fundamentals of posture, hand position, fingernail shape, and so on that will improve my sound and increase my joy in playing Prepare for playing in front of an audience As a teacher Maryanne is patient and easy to work with. She creates a pressure-free learning environment in which everything is adapted to my individual goals and needs. Thanks to her positive approach, I really enjoy the lessons they actually offer relief from my daily stress! I cant say enough good things about her as an instructor. Shes definitely the best guitar teacher I have ever had.
Will is a gifted and versatile pianist who excels in both classical and jazz music. I heard him perform on numerous occasions at the University of Maine, and was always very impressed with his artistry. Will is also an accomplished accompanist. For two and a half years, he served as the Assistant Accompanist for the University Singers at my request (I am the faculty accompanist for this ensemble). In this capacity, he played for sectional rehearsals, and filled in for me when I was traveling and unable to attend rehearsals. He did an excellent job in this role. Before his recent move to Arizona, Will was the Music DIrector at the Old Town United Methodist Church, where he directed and accompanied a Youth Choir and Adult Choir and played the piano for worship services. It is unusual to find an undergraduate student who has the necessary skills to handle these responsibilities. However, I know many individuals who attend this church, and the feedback that I received from them was unanimously positive and complimentary. In addition to his skills at the keyboard, Will is also an excellent singer who provided leadership in his section while he was a member of the University Singers. He was also a valued member of the Maine Steiners, a male a capella group, and created many impressive arrangements for this group. He represented the University of Maine admirably in his many performances throughout the state with this group. Will has turned pages for me at faculty recitals on many occasions. I have asked him to do this because of his great skill in reading music, and because he is mature individual that I can trust to be on time and to focus on the task at hand while on stage. In addition to his admirable skills as a musician, I have found Will to be a reliable and dependable individual who willingly takes on any task that he is asked to do. He will be an asset to any organization or institution with which he is associated. Sincerely, Laura Artesani, D.M.A. Associate Professor, Division of Music School of Performing Arts University of Maine Orono, ME 04469
Sandy did an amazing job at our wedding! Very kind, professional and right on task with everything going on. Definitely would recommend her to anyone looking for a talented musician and DJ services! Sandy - thank you for making our wedding day so amazingly special :)
This was the greatest and most impressive entertainment we've ever had at a party. Our guests are still talking about the music and dancing! A professional group and pleasure to work with-they are VERY talented musicians and vocalists. Yorman will always be our #1 choice whenever we entertain!
What a great musician! She is very talented, courteous and professional. I would definitely recommend her. Her work is high quality.
Outside the Line played at my husband's 40th birthday party and they were amazing! They were delightful to work with and easy to communicate with before the gig. They are professional, friendly, positive and extremely talented! I would recommend them to anyone looking for amazing musicians to perform at their event but you have to promise to invite me! Bravo!
Jennifer has been incredibly helpful in my growth as a musician. Not only is she so knowledable in her craft, but she makes you feel comfortable and willing to make mistakes and really focus on the art. She is very responsive to any questions or concerns I have, and is also punctual and focused during our lessons. She really cares about each of her students. I have seen my own personal improvement with the cello, which, in my opinion is such an incredibly beautiful instrument. I highly recommend Jennifer to anyone, of any age, who is interested in learning the cello.
Donna is a true professional who comes fully prepared to her performances. She bring her sax and flute and booklets of music, prepared to take requests. She performs well accompanied by piano, and sings well both on solo numbers and in harmony with other vocalists. She is so versatile to perform music from the 40's to today's hit songs. Elvis. Adele. Stevie Nicks. Andrews Sisters. Love them all!
I hired John and Andrew to play acoustic guitar at my wedding ceremony. The ceremony was at an outdoor garden and the acoustic guitars fit perfectly with the atmosphere. They supplied their own equipment and the volume was perfect. They are both extremely talented musicians and are able to learn whatever song selections you request. They sent me a short video clip of one of my song requests which was very helpful so I could confirm it was the sound I was looking for. They also attended our rehearsal which was very helpful and appreciated. Very nice and professional.
Elizabeth is a wonderful musician! I have heard her play at many events, and she plays beautifully. She is also very professional and does not detract from the main event in any way, only enhancing it. I would definitely recommend and hire her for my next event!
Rich has helped me improve my guitar and bass playing tremendously. I had a little experience before taking lessons from him, but he raised me to another level. I am now a gigging musician and I feel so much more comfortable and confident playing music because of what I learned from him. He can cover the whole spectrum for learners. Rich is a great teacher of the fundamentals and as well as advanced concepts in a variety of genres. He can show you how to build with the building blocks of music! Also, he is accommodating with his schedule, when he can be, which has been great for my crazy schedule.
Joe is an excellent musician with a high level of experience, patience, and creativity. He is a great teacher and inspiration!
We really enjoyed a great evening of music. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a wonderful musician!!
Jon Riggs has a diverse talent, you can tell he loves music and is a musician himself. He knows all different types of genre, and knows just how to work the crowd, and has fun and feels out the direction the event needs to go. Very knowledgeable, professional and fun.
Jingting, did an outstanding job for our wedding ceremony. She and her partner were excellent musicians！
