Kelly did so well at our wedding reception. He played classical, 90s and some slow jazz. Our guests really enjoyed their cocktail hour serenaded by live music. Thanks again Kelly!!

Donna helped me to be a better music teacher. As a teacher, I took lessons and often refer to the wonderful notebook Donna put together for me, with tons of ideas and thoughts about music in general. Donna can help musicians, and beginners, to really understand the elements of music, and suggest how to make music your career, or just enjoy music as part of your life skills.

I hired them as a Trio for my military retirement social. A 27 year career in the US Air Force. The social was held at the Travis AFB Heratige Center. It was fantastic! The 40s 50s jazz music set the perfect backdrop for my event, at I had requested a Bassist, Guitarist and Sax but the Sax was not available, the Trombone that filled the Trio worked out great. All my guests loved the even. Thanks Citizens Jazz!

I had a fabulous experience as Liz's vocal student. Liz was able to help me move beyond my hobbyist choir member level of experience by introducing me to classical singing techniques. She thoughtfully chose music to my tastes to work with and communicated complicated ideas in a very understandable way. Liz is a lot of fun to be around and a wonderful, incredibly supportive teacher. She's got a great voice too!

Ilana was very responsive to my messages, and was connected to a large network of musicians. When we asked her about having two musicians at our wedding ceremony, she had no problem in making it happen. Since we were very specific on the type of music we wanted, we were pleased to see how receptive she was to this. We were all very pleased with her performance and professionalism. Thanks Ilana!

Allison was such a hit! Although I personally didn't interact with her on the big day, my husband said she was very professional and has great guitar skills. My husband is a musician as well and was able to appreciate the skills needed for the songs Allison played. We spoke via phone and text prior to the ceremony and provided some general request of the genre and musicians we liked. Allison exceeded our expectations. The value for her services is a steal. Thank you Allison!

Marla is a wonderful teacher. I was looking for someone who specializes in classical vocal training and she was perfect. I've had 4 lessons so far and am learning a lot about the mechanics of proper diaphragm usage, placements in order to produce the ideal sound. One thing to remember about learning any instrument (and yes, your voice is an instrument!) is that you won't master it overnight or even over the course of a couple of months. It takes time, practice, and perseverance. So far Marla has been an excellent teacher and I look forward to continue working with her.

I've had 3 one hour lesdons with Denis so far. He's been very patient with my slowness since I'm a beginner and can't really read music. He's been very creative in teaching me how to read music and showing me how to move my fingers on the strings. He's very knowledgeable when I ask about the historic guitarists such as Francisco Tarrega and Andre Segovia and many others that I like. Denis is a great teacher and I've signed my 21 year old son up with him to learn to read music and play classical, acoustic and electric styles. He's had many years of experience with all ages. I highly recommend him to all my friends and family, adults and children that maybe interested in learning music! Guitar is the way to go because you can carry it with you wherever you go! :-))

Have been taking clarinet and alto sax lessons with Andrew for years. Great teacher who is a master of his craft and is very dedicated to the progression of his students. Takes the time necessary to really help you learn and perfect all areas. He is very skilled in both jazz and classical and can really help his student develop in whichever way they desire. Would highly recommend to anyone who is serious about learning their instrument.

Jeffrey is an outstanding piano teacher! I have been taking lessons with him for around a year and a half, and over that time I have grown a ton as a piano player; he has patiently taught me numerous aspects of jazz piano theory, helped me improve my piano technique tremendously, and guided me to mastery on many pieces in different musical styles (jazz, classical, jewish, and more). He is a knowledgable in many different areas of piano, and music in general, and strikes a great balance between pushing you to learn through theory + technique and having fun learning new songs + improvising.

Chris is a really good musician and teacher. Some musicians are so good they forget what it's like to 'not know'. Chris can be with you, where you're at even though he is a highly skilled player. His patience is very encouraging. It's inspiring to take lessons with him and to remember we all NEED music!

I studied the flute as a music major in college and returned to the piano later in life for my enjoyment. I have had many excellent music teachers throughout the years, and Martin ranks with the very best. He always starts by telling me what he appreciates about my playing in the lessons. He then goes on to make suggestions about how I can play as musically as possible. Lessons with Martin are always lively and interesting. He never assigns any of those horrible technical exercises that have been written for the piano. Instead he helps me develop my technique by suggesting fascinating and beautiful pieces to work on. I always leave my lessons musically inspired, and this carries through into my practicing between lessons. He has helped me enjoy playing the piano more and more. Martin is extremely intelligent, yet humble. He has a terrific sense of humor. And of course, his piano playing is beautiful. I cannot recommend Martin highly enough!

Jeremy is a consumate musician, whose fluency and creative imagination on the saxophone place him among the most gifted exponents of the instrument. He plays all genres of music with utter ease, with perfect intonation, and exquisite nuancing, As a teacher, Jeremy is gentle, patient, professional, punctual and masterful in helping his students learn how to navigate the intricacies of sound production. In working with Jeremy, as he helps them hone their technical skills and develop the art of deep listening, his students are soon able to find their unique voices, play the music they love, and express themselves , with full confidence, on their instrument.

Mike's band is fantastic! From start to finish, I felt I was in good hands. Mike and his band did jazz music at the brunch reception for my wedding. All the musicians are highly experienced and professional. Their music was a true highlight, setting an upbeat, jazzy ambiance for all of the guests (including myself!). They accommodated my music requests, were responsive on messages beforehand, offered a great price, and were a pleasure to work. Thank you very much to Mike and his band for making my wedding reception so special!
