When we decided to hire a pianist instead of dj for our reception we new we'd get a different vibe, we weren't prepared for the wonderful treat Vince provided us. He brought a level of sophistication and grace to our event that allowed our guests to not only enjoy his talents, but to still engage with each other and take in the event simultaneously. Vince was well prepared, punctual, and ready to go. In chatting with him I found him to be incredibly personable and quite friendly. His musical ability is top notch, with a wide knowledge of and a variety of stylings. Thanks to Vince for an unforgettable evening!

Until I left SoCal for Seattle, for about 3 years I studied guitar with James Musser, master musician and teacher and founder of Peaceland Music. He gave me keys to guitaring development that still keep opening doors to new skills and keener musicianship. It's hard to tone down the superlatives in describing how helpful James can be, but most important, he tunes in to where you are in your development and what approaches suit your learning style best. His engaging temperament makes him incredibly easy to work with and his perceptivity ensures that he gives his students work that challenges without overwhelming. He listens to you so that you learn new ways to listen to yourself and grow as a musician. I've had several guitar teachers over the years, and none has surpassed James, who has earned my highest rating.

My family feels very fortunate to be musically connected with Mr. Damien Smith My son, Corey, has been taking guitar lessons from him for the last two years and he has really made major strides as a young musician. The skills, knowledge, support and flexibility that Damien provides has kept my son excited and dedicated to learn more! Not to mention that he also has a refurbished home studio with an array of tech equipment and musical instruments to record your music - which is a bonus! We highly recommend him as an instructor! He's one very cool, nice guy!

I've seen Kimberly play & she is a great player ... when I got to study with her I found her lesson materials well put together, organized & full of useful music exercises which helped me go from being a seasoned player (percussionist) intimidated by the idea of learning to solo on guitar to advancing to her special ensemble class where I would solo & where I learned to handle the fear thru live playing ... she will go to great lengths to help U understand song theory by charting out chords & showing U what scales can be used for soloing ... whatever level one is at students young & old see results ... plus she put in time to chart out a favorite song for part of my lesson ... meaning she has a great ear & is able to take difficult music concepts & make the info easy to digest ... so much music so little time is how I've felt after a lesson ... thats been my experience with Kimberly as a student ... and that's this reporters opinion!

AMAZING!!!! She ROCKS!!! I have been playing and singing for about 6 years. I wanted a teacher to get my singing to the next level... And Jamie delivered! She is so much more than a Vocal/ Violin Instructor. She takes the time to make sure I understand not only the Vocal side of things but also the Theory behind it. She has taught me more about who I am as a musician and the goals I want to attain than I could have ever done by myself. I highly recommend Jamie for lessons and Musical performances. She is a fantastic person to be be around and to work with.

We hired Tyler for my sister's birthday party. He was extremely professional throughout the entire process... from the first time we contacted him to the end of the actual event. He responded immediately to any of my queries via text or email. The contract and payment process was very straightforward and easy. The set up was a breeze because he provides everything. He encouraged us to be involved in choosing the music and asked for direction on our desired "mood" for the party. He was very keen on making our evening exactly how we envisioned it!! He showed up on time. He wore a suit which added a touch of class. Most importantly, his sax playing was simply beautiful. We are music lovers and some of our children are professional musicians so I think we are pretty good judges when it comes to musical ability. Tyler was top notch!! Thanks to Tyler, our night turned out exactly how we envisioned it!! Only thing disappointing was that I had to be a host. I would have preferred to just sit and listen!! Thank you, thank you Tyler! Hope to be able to hire you again sometime soon.

I have the distinct pleasure of working with Amanda in a church setting as her music director at St. Clement's church in San Clemente. Amanda contributes to our program by both singing in the choir and offering vocal solos during services. She always arrives prepared and I greatly appreciate her musicality and sensitivity to the music. She's continually happy and offers constructive suggestions that ultimately add much to the music. She's a wonderful musician and I highly recommend her as a singer. I also believe that her skills will wonderfully transfer to teaching the art of singing to her students.

I own a music company that Hector sub-contracts for, he is one of our most valued and well loved instructors. Hector's passion for music is infectious and it certainly propels his students in their learning. A huge plus is that Hector is a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist with a lot of experience performing, writing music and teaching ALL ages. Needless to say we love Hector both as a person and an instructor and would highly recommend him!

I worked with Taylor on an original song we wrote and he did an amazing production on one of my existing songs. He is a phenomenal musician in addition to being a great producer so he knew exactly what I wanted stylistically/ lyrically and pushed me to get the best vocal and guitar sounds possible. He works incredibly fast and delivers the exact sound you want with the best production quality!

After wanting to learn to play the guitar for years, I can’t say enough how grateful I was when I found Davey! He’s incredibly talented, both as a musician and a teacher, and has a unique way of making lessons rewarding from the start. I appreciate the way he values teaching the fundamentals, while also incorporating my musical tastes and keeping the lessons fun. I was blown away by how quickly I learned! He’s truly a gifted teacher and his warm personality and genuine encouragement make you want to play all day. Davey doesn’t just show you how to play an instrument - he teaches you how to be a musician.

My son started formal drum lessons with Steve two and a half years ago. Steve set the bar on professionalism, flexibility, communication, and has the patience to teach music to younger kids. My son went from a kid banging on a toy drum, to a musician that could play drum set rhythms in an elementary school jazz band. We've had other instructors since Steve left the Los Alamitos area but none of them compared to his high level of attributes listed earlier.

Eric is an amazing person, musician, and teacher. I feel extremely fortunate to have had him as my son’s piano teacher this past year. A quality that I love most about Eric is how he brings his own passion and enthusiasm for music to every lesson his does. My son (age 14) felt inspired after every lesson with him and although he has always loved music, it was not until we found Eric that he really began looking forward to his lessons every week. Eric is patient, encouraging, engaging, and very talented. He adapts his teaching style to the personal needs of each student regardless of their age and experience level. I loved that he worked with my son to find pieces that he would truly enjoy learning and playing. With Eric as a teacher, lessons are not only about how many minutes you practiced or pages you completed in a workbook – they are about how the music makes you feel, the enjoyment that comes with learning and playing and the reward you feel when you reach that next goal you set for yourself. I highly recommend Eric to anyone starting or continuing their musical journey. Eric does not just give lessons, he brings music into the heart of anyone he teaches and those who listen to him play.

Been awesome working with Jason! I've always had an interest in becoming a better musician, but the routine of picking up books that are too complex to fully grasp was always daunting. He's helped tremendously with simple breakdowns and in-depth analysis of music theory and composition, as well as technique and application. I really look forward, not only to the future sessions, but the homework I'm assigned to perfect my craft.🤘
