I have been taking guitar lessons from Kimberly via Skype for about six years. I really like her teaching style which is systematic and focused. She tailors her lessons to my goals and time. Her teaching method is to help you gain insight and skill through patient practice of gradually changing exercises. She doesn't snow you with theory, but presents it to you in digestible amounts just when it will make sense. She welcomes questions and I always learn from our discussions. She has led me to learn techniques on the guitar that I was absolutely sure I could never learn. For something to seem impossible at the start, to seem possible a week later and to be routine a month later is amazingly uplifting. Kimberly's background was first a life of teaching herself and playing gigs with all kinds of bands in all kinds of places. She has also deepened and strengthened her knowledge by gaining academic degrees in guitar and jazz and also by studying under masters. This gives her an incredibly deep understanding of learning and teaching music, an immense skill in playing guitar, and an appreciation for the challenges of playing with other people. I especially love her continued enthusiasm for guitar and that she really enjoys teaching. I have found in Kimberly the best of teachers and highly recommend her without reservation.
Loved our experience with AY Musik. The guys are very friendly, professional, really easily understood the tone of the party - and got out on the dance floor to bring everyone in to the party. Will hire again 100%.
Taylor created a very professional, radio ready song for me. He works extremely fast and knows how to construct modern music that sounds like he hired a full band. The mix was fantastic music and singer alike. I highly recommend Taylor for your project.
Michael is a very knowledgeable and skilled guitarist, as well as a great teacher. He's very patient, and can answer any questions I have about various techniques and theory. I feel like I've made a lot of progress while studying with him.
It was my 60th Birthday and I wanted to go all out. I found several bands here on Thumbtack but either they were going to do a "show" for way too much money, or their demos sounded like a garage band...even though the price was reasonable. I wanted jazz and I also had a long list of my "own" requests. I met with Dave to discuss my event and he was very professional. His price was very fair. He even took some lyrics I had written and wrote music to them which the band played live at my event. The band members were awesome right from the start arriving on time and setting up efficiently. They introduced themselves to me personally and we had great communication all evening. Frankly....they were GREAT FUN! They played everything from the Bossa Nova to Frank Sinatra to the Beatles...and I requested a lot of Country and they even did that! Talented and tight. I even sang and played with them and it really made things even more memorable. I would recommend Dave and his musicians without any hesitation. Don't look any further for your next live band....contact Dave Hill and you will be thrilled!
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.
I have worked with Bob on various levels. First, Bob provided me with private guitar lessons for several years. Bob made the learning experience fun and enjoyable. I was able to learn and play the kind of music that I wanted to play. Bob is also very patience (staying with me for so many years is a true testament to this!). My youngest son Michael also took private guitar lessons from Bob. On a more professional level, Bob and his band performed at my oldest son's (Bobby) wedding receipion. It was a "blast" with all of the guests dancing and singing. I actually received a call years later from an attending guest asking for Bob's contact information for their wedding reception (obviously they had very fond memories of the event and Bob's music). If and when my 2 remaining kids get married, I can guaranty Bob will be going the music. He makes an event a real party!!!
WOW! What an amazing band! We were absolutely blown away by these amazing musicians it is clear that they are all at the top of the field. We chose to book the 6 Piece with both male and female singers and boy! can they really really SING. They sounded amazing, looked fresh and fun and had such energy every single person at our wedding was on there feet even my dad who is 83. We had an absolute blast and everyone could not stopped raving about the band they asked if we stole them from American Idol!!!! I can tell you from the moment we were in contact they were communicative professional and handled everything, even thinking of things we haven't even thought of yet like lighting and sound requirements. The MC was charismatic, funny and charming and was able to tell our story with such class that my wife and I were in tears. We looked around for 6 months before choosing a band most great wedding bands were way way out of the budget, they were reasonably priced and for what you get which is one of the best bands i've ever seen at a wedding I actually think we should have been paying double or more like some of the bands we first looked at that weren't even as good. So thats my rant. Amazing. Blown Away. Memories for a lifetime. They do book up early were lucky we had our wedding on a Sunday so it wasn't a problem. If it was on Saturday we may not have been as lucky!
Rodrigo was EXCELLENT! The music was perfect and beautiful. Everypne at my party commented on how great the duo was. I was totally pleased and would hire them again for future events!
My daughter had a wonderful experience dealing with Cindy. She's is flexible with our busy schedule. My daughter learn french horn from cindy since middle school. She is now playing in her high school band and was able to played anything quickly . She owed it to cindy for having good tone. She improved very quickly through Cindy methods of teaching. Cindy is patients and also took real interest in my daughter ability. I'm glad my daughter have such a great teacher. Thank you Cindy!
Chase has taught my high school son electric guitar for 2 years. Apart from being extremely knowledgable about music, Chase is also an excellent educator -- something that I have found to be a rare quality in guitar teachers. On top of that, Chase really cares about his students -- both in terms of musical progress and general well-being. He is genuinely committed to his students. His broad smile when his students perform says it all!
Worked with my son to improve for school band. Worked with him on his level. Was patient, reliable and my son loved him.
I have known Jennifer Deirmendjian for 12 years now and worked with her musically on solo projects off and on as well as performances in bands. She plays and writes violin beautifully. I have learned so much from her musicianship in rehearsals on a professional level more than anyone I have ever worked with. She is patient, kind and disciplined. I highly recommend her teaching experience as she has been my mentor and inspired me in so many ways!
We hired Business Time West for my mom's 60th birthday party and they didn't disappoint!! Everyone danced all night long and kept saying how awesome the band was!! My moms party wouldn't have been the same without them! So glad we decided to hire them for our event!! Thanks for an awesome time!
I've been involved with the LAPC for about 3 years, using it for production and most currently as a rehearsal space and attending the weekly open mic. James has flawlessly mixed albums for my previous band and has produced amazing music with my current project. As a rehearsal space, the sound and equipment are quality along with it being a unique aesthetic in itself, setting a creative and motivating vibe. The colorful lighting and tree-sized mural lining the hallway makes you want to play like you're in a music video. The open mics are a great place to share a fresh song, or meet new people and artists weekly. I can't speak highly enough about the abundance of love and talent that is at L.A. Producers Club! Highly recommend, if nothing else, coming by to hang out under the disco ball teepee and hear some comedy and jams on a Wednesday night!
Mischief made my event. We had a dance floor and the band kept it full all evening long. They had great groove, had varied song list. Marlena not only has great voice - truly star quality - but was amazingly varied in style for music she sang and she certainly kept the guys attention. If she wasn't so nice I would hate her :-) the lead guitar player clear knows his craft - his solos were crazy good and fantastic job singing. Harmony amount the members was impressive often in 4 parts! They showed up on time, were professional, interacted very well with my friends, and put on an amazing show in addition to the amazing sound. I would definitely hire them again!
We are very professional in everything we do and how we conduct ourselves.
