As a birthday present for my husband, I invited a bunch of friends to our home for a concert of Scott's songs, with the option of having Scott compose a spontaneous and individualized song for everyone willing to pay for this special service. After the two clever songs Scott sang for the birthday boy and me, everyone else wanted one too...! It became a feast of fabulously funny and profound lyrics. This was one of the better birthday celebrations ever and although this event is several years in the past, we still marvel at Scott's brilliant talent. Brigitta D'Amato (707) 895-2366
I've been taking guitar and singing lessons with David for a few months, and I've got to say I've had a really great time learning from him! David is an incredibly friendly and knowledgeable teacher who clearly cares about his students and their goals, and better still has played and performed with the artists that I like best. It took me a while to find a teacher who was willing to teach me the music I wanted to play instead of starting with their core competence, so it was really refreshing that within a month or two with plenty of practice I was able to learn one of my favorite songs (Three Rounds and a Sound by Blind Pilot, if you're curious), and a little longer to start singing it, which I was really stoked about. He has been great about breaking things down when the piece we're working on is too challenging. David has also pushed me to pursue my goal of creating music, helping along the way to create melodies and lyrics. I have to say, it takes a great teacher to get me to sing and to share lyrics with them (do you know how embarrassing that can be?). I could go on, but suffice it to say, David is a great teacher, and I'm really glad I started taking lessons with him.
I recently hired Toby for lessons in composition and to help me gain more agility and greater finger dexterity. I played piano for 5 years as a child, but stopped in high school because I became too busy. I also wanted to start writing my own music. I have lyrics, but I don't know how to put them to music. Toby has been working with my daughter who started piano lessons 3 years ago. My daughter had some interest in playing, but had a hard time getting motivated to practice. Toby got her back on track and excited about practicing. She is unique in allowing her intermediate students to play with her band which plays originals, including her own which are a mix of classical and rock. Toby has had an amazing influence on my daughter who went from not knowing how to play to playing intermediate pieces with a wonderful tone, dynamics, and dexterity. She is currently working on a some Chopin (Toby is most skilled in the Romantic era pieces such as Chopin and Rachmaninoff) and the Mozart Turkish March sonata. My daughter has also learned how to write songs and compose music to match them. Toby studied at Berklee which is well-known as the premier school for songwriting and composition, and it shows in her teaching. I am so excited to have an opportunity to work with her. She is a fantastic teacher and her original music is gorgeous and inspirational.
Jenni is an amazing talent for all your lyric and music needs!
I'm a singer/ song writer and I took private vocal lessons with Courtney hoping to understand the technique of singing and become a better/ stronger singer. Courtney helped me with finding my range and developing strength and breath support- which was what I needed! She's very knowledgeable and gave me many tips and exercises of how to develop my voice on my own time. Every lesson I had with her I could feel and hear myself growing and making progress! Courtney is also very friendly and patient, she will give you all the attention you seek from a great vocal instructor!
For the past five years, through his patience, insightful listening and gifted skills as musician and arranger, Saul Kaye, a phenomenally unique and dedicated musician (and "Pioneer of Jewish Blues"), has provided me with very practical guidance in every aspect of writing, composing, performing and arranging my own music. Through sensitive feedback and encouragement, he has helped me to develop my skills and style as a song-writer/singer. Every session is an exciting collaboration with him, where I bring my own raw musical idea or inspiration, which I record on keyboard; Saul takes these rough ideas and helps me to develop them by offering numerous ideas about various instruments to develop the idea, including a wickedly bad-ass blues guitar (!), or more classical/ folk sound. This guy has a TON of INSTRUMENTS UP HIS SLEEVE! He's put on layers of whatever instrument I've asked for from every kind of classical instruments/strings, choral vocals, accordion, to every kind of percussion, souond effects. When you hire Saul, you hire an entire orchestra, or blues band, or whatevery kind of genre of musical back-up you want! AMAZING! I love how, in working with Saul, I have a whole orchestra, or blues band, or folk sound- what-ever I want- at my fingertips. Each finished piece of music is so much more rich and complex than anything I could ever have done without him! Yet, if I'm not happy with something, Saul is totally supportive of my choice. His sensitivity and teamwork has helped me to flesh out the kernel for each song in a way that has helped me find "my own sound." Saul helped "master" my first CD, "For this Day," and took me through the process of getting my first CD completed and launched on CD Baby. He's now helping me to complete my 2nd and I'm enjoying every aspect of it totally!! He's a great musical midwife!
Soleil is an incredible songwriting talent with the ability to insightfully write lyrics that capture the essence of life's many stories.As the Director of the Marin TV Series, Musical Medicine with Soleil Dakota, I experienced the beauty of her heartfelt, inspirational songs first hand. For each show she delivered a performance of a song she wrote- each with a special message bringing hope, love, and up-liftment to humanity. She is warm, congenial, hard working, professional and a pleasure to work with. On the show, Grammy Award winning, Multi Platinum Producer Narada Michael Walden praised Soleil for her song writing mastery. "Soleil became a student of phrasing and has mastered it. Thats why she has hit songs and will continue to have hit songs." ~Patricia Hartigan Bloom, Director of Marin TV Series Musical Medicine with Soleil Dakota.
