Our Viking Opera singer was amazing. She was exactly as advertised -- very ridiculous and funny and light-hearted. All Star Showgrams was easy to communicate with and was very accommodating for special requests. She made up a ridiculous birthday song for our two birthday recipients, and entertained our office for ~15 minutes. Would definitely hire again (next time I want to embarrass a good friend)!
Donna Stoering has the rare gift of not only being a fantastic concert pianist who has traveled the world sharing her gift, but a gifted and highly effective teacher. I have my B.A. in piano and wanted advanced lessons after graduation. Donna listened for my strengths and found a way to both inspire and respect me as a student. She is amazing in how she helps her students with bench, shoulder, arm, wrist, and hand position using the body to create beautiful tones and create a musical story. When you learn a new piece from Donna, you'll understand the composer who wrote the piece and the mood he/she was trying to convey. She teaches her students how to join the composer, bringing their original thoughts and feelings into play as they perform. This brings a whole new life to practicing the piano. She is an expert in teaching technique and clarity. She is an expert in helping the student understand how to touch the keyboard in a distinctive manner for each style of music, i.e., French Impressionism has a different touch than Baroque. I am so grateful for having the privilege of taking lessons from Donna Stoering. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced performer, Donna is the teacher for you.
I'm a songwriter and have published a worship album in Mandarin last year. Though I'm considered a pretty good singer among people I know, I know there's a big difference between a pretty good amateur singer and a professional one. With the desire to close, or at least to minimize the gap, I looked online for a voice teacher who can help me, and found Ken. I like that he is a singer and composer himself, and more! Ken has good ears and a great sense of humor! He's also very good at communication. I sent him a song I posted on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIJkPgl72b4 before we met. He quickly identified a couple of things I need to work on. I knew right there this is someone I can definitely learn from. I'm glad Ken responded to my inquiry in the first place, though he's out of my range in distance! It takes forty minutes, with no traffic, to drive to his place, but it's all good! I could practice what I have just learned on the drive home by singing every road sign! Ken does not feed me with any standardized curriculum. He works around my needs. I just had my second lesson. We practiced every skill I need to improve with an original song I wrote. I'm sure my second album will sound much better from this point on! Thanks, Ken!
Liz has been my daghter's singing teaching for the the past four years. Besides being an amazing opera singer herself, Liz brings her professional dedication into her teaching. She is very inspiring in her punctual and pleasant manner, her attention to details and sharing her love of music and perfection with her students. I would highly recommend her a san instructor for all levels, helping her students discover their capabilities.
I recently inquired through Thumbtack to record a song for a promotional video my company is putting together. Chris responded immediately and was very prompt in all of our communication throughout the process. He was also flexible with his schedule and was able to meet with my team in short notice. When we arrived to his home studio, he was ready and raring to go with our track and was very patient since none of us our professionally trained singers. He provided us with a finished product in about a day and quickly turned around our suggested edits. He was a pleasure to work with and we hope to work with him again in the future.
Never in a million years would I have ever thought that I would be capable of singing in public. But Ashten has helped me overcome my fears and I can now say that I sing with my friends on karaoke nights without shame! Ashten is the highlight of my week. I always look forward to our lesson and I always learn something new!
I had my first lesson with Anna and I really did see improvement after just one lesson. I believe Anna is an amazing singer in her own right, and is a great teacher. I can't wait to see what progress I'll be able to make.
Elaine is a really talented singer who was on time, fun, polite, and great to work with! She was flexible and asked me for my preferred set list ahead of time and provided an awesome environment for a birthday party. Would highly recommend as well as hire again
For anyone looking to hire a band, look no further than Retro Jukebox! We recently had Retro Jukebox play at our wedding, and many guests told us that the band was the highlight of their experience-- the minute they opened the dance floor with a James Brown number, everyone rushed to get moving and shaking! As clients, we were incredibly impressed with Retro's ability to cater the event experience to a cross-cultural audience of various backgrounds and ages. A significant percentage of our audience was Indian, and they were able to put together a program which appealed to all. We appreciated their flexibility in allowing a short 'Indian music' segment, even doing some improv and dancing along with it! Hopefully, this also inspired a few ideas for future gigs as well. :-) Additionally, my husband and I both sing, and wanted to perform a song with the band at our wedding. To accommodate our request, Retro held multiple rehearsals with us both prior to the event and day of the event. Geechi, the band's lead singer, even cut short a gig to practice the entire entrance and production before the guests arrived, which was instrumental in pulling off a seamless performance. Our guests were simply wowed by the introduction that greeted them when they walked in-- it felt like a professional show. Geechi not only delivered as an excellent vocalist, but also as an entertaining and charismatic emcee. His rendition of Billy Ocean's 'Suddenly' stood out as the finest instance of musicality in the entire evening-- my father went up to the stage and asked him to perform an encore of the entire song. Talent, professionalism, and an infectious positivity-- that is Retro Jukebox! Thank you for making our wedding so special.
Natalie has been fantastic to work with! Her instruction through exercises, general tips/suggestions, and specific ideas when working on a particular song has all been stellar and on point throughout my work with her. I feel like I have improved dramatically over the course of our lessons, and my band members have made several comments about my improvement as well. She has an uncanny knack for knowing what I am doing with my breath, diaphragm, throat, mouth, etc., and being able to suggest just the right adjustments to make things sound better and more comfortable to sing. Natalie is a wonderful person, too, very encouraging, supportive, and respectful. I highly, highly recommend her!!
I took voice lessons with Sarah for quite a long time. I was barely trained in jazz vocals. Sarah is a very lovable, ambitious person. Great teacher. She always encouraged me and was very knowledgeable about all things singing. :) I grew so much through our lessons and I still practice her vocal techniques to this day.
I highly recommend this talented and gracious performer. I saw Peter perform at several SF venues and have enjoyed his music and his energetic performances. This guy is indeed a "rising star" in the Bay area! His voice is amazing. Recently, as a surprise for a special friend, I hired Peter to write a song using the words from a poem that my friend wrote... Pete skillfully crafted the melody to match the words of the song and he performed it with such musical skill - it brought tears to my friend's eyes! It was just the "perfect music". Peter was on time, professional, reasonably priced, and courteous! Keep following this talented performer. I ‘m sure his career will continue to flourish!
WOW!!! Nick is AMAZING! Jazz, pop, R&B, even a little country! He did it all! And he took EVERY SINGLE request! He's like a human jukebox! Would recommend to anyone!
#BEST.TIME.EVER!! OMG these guys were so awesome. They had everyone up dancing! Very personable, friendly, fun group of guys! I would highly recommend them!!!
I manage a restaurant in San Francisco and hired Cherie’s duo for our lounge area. We’re an upscale venue and she and Mark totally fit the bill. She has an incredible voice and was also very entertaining with our crowd. Definitely planning on hiring her again.
Daniel is obviously a very skilled operatic singer. He is very patient, and has a great ear for poor technique. If you are already a seasoned singer you can still get something out of a lesson with him.
I'm a high-end guitarist and singer from Nashville. I am now living in Livermore, CA. I can do a "single" to a four-piece band. Thank you! Building new Website ...on Facebook and Youtube!
