Ron is a great teacher and talented musician. My girls love taking lessons with him and are learning so much. Highly recommend!
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.
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!
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 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.
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. His band was the hit of my 50th birthday celebration and we loved every minute of it. Thank you Greg! Not only are you a great musician but a darn nice guy! Great job and hope we see you again soon! I highly recommend Soul Impression for ANY party!!!! Thank you Kena Manfredi
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!
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
Wonderful musician to work with. She and her team knew how to engage the crowd and create a fun environment. I would strongly recommend Karmin for your even no matter what the occasion may be.
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
Dave is a very professional and excellent musician. I have been taking guitar lessons from him for four years now and have learned a great deal from Dave. I have greatly improved my playing because of him. Dave is a very friendly and patient teacher and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who wants lessons.
Miss Jingting Liu is a very professional violinist and violin teacher!
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!
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.
Free Rain was kind enough to come to our wedding near Mt. Hood in Oregon, which is over a 4-hour drive from their homebase in Seattle. They were AWESOME! Dale is a great guitarist, all the musicians are very talented, and their female vocalist is out of this world. Anytime they were playing people were dancing for all 3 hours of their set. We didn't want them to stop, and they were kind enough to oblige us with an encore song since they likely faced a mutiny from the crowd if they didn't:) Dale was wonderful to work with... very quick responses, and seemingly able to deal with as much or as little input on the setlist as you want to give. We didn't have much direction to give, and completely left it in his hands, which was the right call. They've played enough events and weddings to know what keeps people moving. We received a bunch of compliments on them, which goes to show how lucky my wife and I were to find them. The quick summary: If you're looking for a professional, awesome-sounding, and high energy band playing great covers from the 80's through today, these are your guys (and gal). I couldn't recommend them more highly!
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.
Dan arrived on time. He played what I ask him. He will be coming back. Great musician.
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!
We really enjoyed a great evening of music. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a wonderful musician!!
Joe is an excellent musician with a high level of experience, patience, and creativity. He is a great teacher and inspiration!
