Verified review

Clifford is a talented jazz pianist but also a wonderful instructor .He teaches comprehensive piano- jazz, classical and music theory.He makes learning music fun. Some lessons we listen and learn from the masters- such as Bill Evans. Other lessons we play tunes together. Learning music is a long journey- but well worth it.

Kelly Key's was a wonderful addition to our Diversity Potluck! He arrived super early to allow set up time. He had all his own equipment and even a song request booklet! At the start we had to ask him to lower the sound (because we still had people working) which he obliged and was professional about it. If we need another pianist/keyboard guy I will certainly hire him again!

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.

Margarita P. is a very good professional pianist and even better teacher. The experience i had while with her was excellent and she knows well how to adapt her teachings to each individual student based on their level and personal needs. Further more, she was always on time and with a positive attitude. Thumbs up. Benjamin C.L.

Larisa Smirnova is an outstanding harpist and pianist, she has performed for both piano and harp in several events I have attended, she is well versed in many styles of music, she is good with improvisations, and reading music, but above all she brings music, people and events to life, she is timely and very professional in all her dealings.

Kat is awesome! I've been taking lessons with her for several years now. She brings the academia that comes with being a classically trained pianist as well as the experience and energy (and awesomeness) of a contemporary rock musician. And perhaps most importantly, she's a lot of fun to hang out with! Lessons with Kat are educational, fun, and motivating.

Michael played with a few other musicians for our wedding. He provided music for the ambient setting before the ceremony, the processional, and during our service. We appreciated how he worked with us before our wedding to determine what mood and style we wanted. When we weren't sure ourselves, he asked helpful question and offered suggestions to help us figure it out. He also worked well with the other musicians (both with just a pianist for before the ceremony and during the processional, and also with guitarist, percussionist, and singer for a different section of our ceremony) and was willing to compose original arrangements. The music was absolutely beautiful and what we wanted. He's great and we totally recommend him!

Mike is one of the best drummers I've worked with, and I've worked with many. We played both rock and jazz styles. A sensitive player and easygoing so easy to work with.

Jan's guitar was the perfect background to our evening. His style makes it easy to socialize without having to compete with the music. His easy jazz was so nice to listen to. At one point we asked him to turn up the volume a little because once inside our venue, he played softly and we wanted to hear the beautiful music.

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.

In a short time had a beginner performing live with a band in front of co-workers at a party. Kevin used many helpful tips and tricks to help me learn the minor and major chords to play.

He's my cello teacher. I'm a beginner at cello but have extensive music training and experience. Joseph is a very skilled cellist. He's classically trained but is proficient at a variety of styles including hip-hop, jazz, etc. His teaching style (for me at least) encourages breaking down the parts of playing to focus on specific techniques, often assigning exercises that require patience but can push me to the next level. He has good feedback for me and lets my interests drive the program. When I had minor complaints about the workload, he took the feedback well and quickly enacted adjustments. His schedule is a little chaotic during the summer since he's a working musician but he's always punctual and communicates (mostly through texts) responsively.

I work with what I love to do, playing from classics to the most recent hits on the piano. The piano makes the event special, a classical touch to the music that will be played.

About

You've heard of a string quartet, right? How about a sax quartet? That's right; a sax quartet! The next time your party or event needs a fun (or serious), all-acoustic, and small chamber ensemble that's mobile and takes up a small footprint, call on the 47th Avenue Sax Quartet. From jazz, swing, and rag time to classical and contemporary, we're a great alternative to the usual classical string quartet. Christmas jazz and holiday favorites are in our seasonal playlist.
