Summer is an amazing theory teacher in so many ways! She's incredibly professional, patient, intuitive, and understanding and has the ability to teach to your personal learning style. Loved every minute of working with her, and it's helped advance my own understanding of music, both with guitar and singing, in a way that has allowed me to make leaps and bounds in my own songwriting as well as learning other music styles. Hire her, right this very minute!

I've been taking guitar lessons with Kimberly since the beginning of 2011. At the time I'd had several years of lessons using a traditional method on acoustic guitar and was looking for a teacher who could help me focus on electric blues rock and move me beyond my intermediate skill level. Kimberly has a real focus on and talent for teaching. My lessons are tailored to meet my interests. A large part of the lesson is devoted to learning her method for blues soloing--at least 5 approaches to improvisation and comping. After several years, I've come to see how these approaches interweave, complement each other and have become an intuitive part of my musical vocabulary. Also, because I expressed an interest, part of the lesson involves sight reading, learning blues and jazz theory, developing rhythmic playing sense, and learning a few favorite solos. Kimberly has an amazing ability to tab out and teach any song you give her. Which leads to the best part--after 6 months I was invited to play with one of her ensemble classes. While I was absolutely petrified with fear at the beginning, this has turned into one of the highlights of my week every week. It is just downright fun! It's a safe and forgiving environment where you can make mistakes and learn, or try things out that might flop, or turn into something cool. Every teacher and guitar magazine article all point to the need to play with other musicians to develop your skills and this is where Kimberly Allison really delivers. I feel that I could now sit in with other musicians and contribute. I give my highest recommendation for taking lessons with Kimberly.

Chris us helping to sing and play songs. I wasn't sure I would be able to find anyone who knows a lot of country and blues but Chris knows lots of my favorite songs like pride and joy, midnight rider, and others. He's for a great set of helpful exercises to get me where I need to be.

We used Tyler to play Sax while our guests arrived - can't say enough good things about him! He was quick to respond to our emails and gave us some awesome song choices. He took the lead the day of the wedding and coordinated with the wedding planner and other vendors - it was totally seamless. The guests LOVED his talent and we loved working with him.

I have had the pleasure of working with Skip Johnson on numerous high level corporate events, private events and VIP weddings over the last 16 years. Skip is a consummate professional - onstage and off. He is an extremely talented musician, and whether he's performing solo or with his band (who are also amazing musicians!), has always exceeded my client's expectations. Skip routinely goes above and beyond to make each event a huge success. Once my clients have worked with him, they request him again and again. Skip is that rare combination of talented artist and astute businessman, who understands the importance of the details and treats every event, big or small, as if it's the most important one he's ever done. I absolutely love working with him and would highly recommend him!

Music lessons with Steve

Verified review

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.

They were fantastic they made our party so great. They were so easy to work with, flexible, upbeat and great entertainers. They knew how to get the party stared. We had terrible hot weather to deal with and they never skipped a beat. They're interaction with the guests coming out into the crowd making everyone have fun and feel included. If you are lucky enough to get this band you can know your party will be a success and fun. I'm already trying to think of another party just to have them back.

Lucas is great! Equally at home with country, blues and gospel, as he is with David Bowie or Pink Floyd or classical or jazz or whatever. He is a ardent lover of many musical styles and an enthusiastic teacher! I got to learn by choosing songs I wanted to play, he took time to transcribe the chords and turn into valuable lessons. Great experience, great guy!

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!

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!

About

We play the best of today's top country hits but while many bands simply perform songs like a copy, we put our own personality into them--so the audience still hears the music they want to hear but with a different twist, played by top notch musicians who can help judge the flow and vibe of an event and create the right sound. Not everything in life can be planned!
