Ron Ferlito is an outstanding piano and voice teacher. Ron taught my daughter for almost two years, from age 8-10. Her piano and voice talent has increased significantly under Ron's guidance. Further, my daughter attended a song writing camp led by Ron last year. Under his direction, she wrote the lyrics and melody to her own song and performed it at the end of the camp. Ron's greatest attributes as a teacher are that he is always positive and kind with his students, but he will push their talent to the limits and stretch their abilities. Our family is military and we must move soon. I wish we could pack Ron up and take him to our next assignment with us. He is a great musician and teacher. I highly recommend!

We hired Ron to teach our 8-year-old daughter piano. I am pleased with his experience and how he works with her. He pushes her past her comfort zone to grow musically, he encourages all the proper techniques that are necessary to become a good pianist. I highly recommend him.

We had Jeff play a house party for us and he was a hit! People were loving his tunes and his energy and several people asked us for his contact information while at the party. We met Jeff when he played at a bar that we hit up after our wedding and it was great to have him out to play for us again. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for a fun musician to play your event. CHEERS!!!

I had Mary as my piano instructor for two years, I took a group class with her as well as private lessons. Even though I was in a class of over twenty other students Mary made sure to see how I was progressing as well as checking in on other students. In my first 9 months of studying under Mary I went from having absolutely no piano experience to being able to play pieces such as Moonlight Sonata and Fur Elise by Beethoven, Prelude in D flat by Chopin, Rondo alla Turca by Mozart and any other piece I could want to learn. The best part of studying under Mary is she does not just teach you how to play a piece of music, she gives you the tools to truly understand the pieces you are studying. The way she teaches doesn't leave you with the ability to play a few songs on the piano, if you decide to study under Mary you will be taught how to become a pianist. That is the best thing about Mary no matter what level you are at studying under her will help you become a great musician because she doesn't just teach you how to play songs on the piano she teaches you how to become a pianist. No matter your level Mary Wagner is the piano teacher you want to teach you how to play this instrument

Mary Wagner has changed my life. You have probably seen thousands of posts like this but this is true. I tried to learn piano when I was six and for four years it never worked and I quit until I turned seventeen. Within two lessons with Mary, I learned ten times more than I ever did in those four years. No, I wasn't Mozart or Bach, but I had gained a foundation not only in piano but in musicianship as a whole. Now, it's been six months and I'm soaring in my musicianship. Mary has taught me so much about music but I've also learned so much life experience from such a lovely woman. She's helped me prep for college and because I'm doing the same program she taught at Scottsdale Community College, I'm getting college credit for something I love. She has given me the tools for piano and life. She has changed me for the better. Whether you're looking for that or not is up to you but I can guarantee you will become a better musician in a month with her than a year with anyone else. She is my hero and I look to her for anything and everything, especially for piano. Trust me, she is worth your time and effort.

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!

My son (6 years old) began taking lessons from Eddie about 9 months ago. I wondered if that might be too young to start formal lessons. I was forced to take piano lessons as a child, and it was not a great experience. Eddie has such a warm sense of humor and hospitality that he immediately put my son at ease. Eddie is truly gifted not only as drummer, but as a teacher. He is extremely creative and finds a way to connect with each of his students individually. We are incredibly thankful to have found a teacher who absolutely understands how to reach students of all ages and skill levels. He makes learning fun and is not afraid to stray from his lesson plan if you find a song you really want to learn. Eddie is the BEST!

Eddie has been a fantastic teacher, and I highly recommend him to anyone searching for a drum instructor in the Phoenix area. His knowledge of different styles and his excellent technique make him the perfect instructor for anyone wanting to develop their skills as a drummer. As a professional piano player wanting to develop his percussion ability, I think Eddie's a phenomenal teacher who's extremely amicable and easy to get along with while still able to push his students to improve and have fun making music. Definitely check him out!

My drumming has much improved since I took lessons from Eddie. He has a lot of experience both as a professional drummer and as a teacher. The lessons are well structured and much attention is paid to personal level and musical interests. He's able to explain the theoretical and practical side of drumming. And also very important, it's fun having drum lessons from Eddie!

Reggie's the best. He was patient yet able to positively push for improvement. I liked that we worked on music that was interesting to me while also integrating enough music theory to enable a better understanding and appreciation of how music works. My husband also followed his lesson after mine and often we were able to work on music or a song together. This made practicing at home very enjoyable. Thanks Reggie for your flexibility and expertise.

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 can’t say enough good things about her as an instructor. She’s definitely the best guitar teacher I have ever had.

Maryanne is a truly gifted teacher. I came to her an absolute beginner six months ago and now I can read music and play several songs. She has found the sweet spot between providing guidance and structure and allowing you, the student, to choose what to work on. She can listen to any song you bring in and immediately learn the chords and rhythm, write it out and break it down for you until you can do it. It's her super power: she helps you step by step over the gap from the moment of inspiration -- I want to play THAT! -- but not knowing where to begin: she shows you where to begin and takes you all the way through, all while managing the fragile self confidence of a novice musician with patience and steadiness. I am very grateful to Maryanne.

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

I have never walked away from any event with out a smile on my face and saying that young man has talent and I can't wait until the next event! I must add you will never meet a kinder more sincere young man who will leave you in awe at whatever event you may be honored to hear him sing or play at. Debra Libby

Yorman Williams and his band Yormelodies is a group of professional musicians who really knows how to get the party started. Instantly capturing the audience's attention with their wide range of music from the 60s, 70, 80s, and 90s, no one was able to remain in their seats as they performed. At one point, Yorman himself gave a superb rendition of Louis Armstrong's :"What a wonderful world", and if we were'nt all looking directly at him, we would never believe it was not Louis himself. I highly recommend this great performer for weddings, parties, reunions, and celebrations!

Yorman deserves a 7th star! He has ignited a love of music in my children...My 13 year old's passion is the guitar and 9 year old the drums. Yorman teaches them these instruments, as well as, piano. During the week we participate in Skype lessons which work really well for our busy schedule and when available, Yorman visits our home for longer in person sessions. He is patient, passionate and very knowledgeable. I would not hesitate in recommending him for lessons. You will not be disappointed.

I hired Gerry for my mother's funeral service, after another musician I had been working with didn't work out. And at the last minute, when I was in a pinch and getting stressed, Gerry graciously jumped in to help me out. Gerry performed amazingly (I even saw the Catholic priest tapping his feet and moving!) Gerry made the service a great experience for my family and I deeply appreciate what he did for us. Gerry is a genuinely nice individual and a very kind and compassionate person. He made an impact on all my family members with his heartfelt performance. I would HIGHLY recommend Gerry for any musical needs! Awesome person!

My Husband and I chose Gerry for our music lessons and we're very happy we did! My husband is learning guitar and I am learning keyboard. He is very proficient and knowledgable in both. His approach to teaching is fun and unconventional... meaning I wasn't just sitting there trying to read notes that made no sense to me. I learned quite a bit in one lesson and am actually enjoying the learning process. Thanks, Gerry!

My wife, Crystal, and I hired Colleen and Chris Collins (aka Eirezona Duo) to perform at our wedding ceremony and reception June, 2017 in Sedona, AZ. They are an extremely talented husband and wife team, with a beautifully rich innate musicality ... we were nothing short of absolutely impressed! Colleen and Chris are both classically trained guitarists, and as such also play a wide range of instruments. Beyond her amazingly strong and beautiful vocals, Colleen also is an accomplished flutist. They transitioned seamlessly from playing light classical, and contemporary love songs during the ceremony portion of the evening, to rock, folk and country classics during our reception. Despite the busyness of the evening, from getting ready for the ceremony, to formal family photos and toasts, a big part of both Crystal and I just wanted to kick-back during cocktail hour to listen to their music and dance the night away! We received numerous compliments throughout the night for their amazing duet sound. There is no doubt that our guests were well-entertained with their performance. The music could not have been better! In addition to their performance the day-of our wedding, Colleen and Chris went above-and-beyond and invested time in learning our "first dance" song, "Feels Like Home", which was absolutely beautiful! The Collins are a rare blend of talent, flexibility, integrity and professional entertainment. They hold a strong desire to please and are also very well priced. You won't find a more likable pair of musicians! We give Colleen and Chris Collins our highest praises and would recommend them in a heartbeat! Thank you so, so much - Colleen and Chris! You all are absolutely wonderful and we look forward to enjoying more of your live performances in the future! Brian & Crystal Miller

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.

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.
