Working with Mark was an amazing experience! I found Mark on Craigslist as i was looking for someone for a recording project. His professionalism was refreshing considering all the flakes on Craigslist! His recording studio is outstanding and his prices are competitive. What was surprising is Mark is also an acomplished guitarist! This came in handy when i needed some lead guitar overdubbed on some of my songs. And if your looking for a teacher, you'd be foolish to look elsewhere. I've worked with Mark a handful of times and look forward to working with him again!

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.

I was in choir with Nick for two years (concert choir and advanced chamber singers). Nick is always attentive during rehearsal and comes ready to sing and on time. He is an outstanding musician who learns the music quickly and is very professional in the rehearsal setting. Nick and I attended some Christmas caroling gigs together and he was always very focused and well-prepared, both during rehearsal and performance. He also showed the same amount of care and preparation when I asked him to sing in a choir at my wedding. Nick is a very hardworking and trustworthy individual, and I very much enjoyed singing with him.

James Jackson & I have been professional working musician colleagues for well over 30 years. I really can't say enough good about James Jackson & his skills as a world-class guitarist, songwriter, & his record production is nothing short of superb & cutting edge. James Jackson most recently produced the legendary Lacy J Dalton's new release "Next to Me" & which has been getting national airplay on the Americana & Country music rotation playlists. Very fortunate is the artist, manager or record label who finds the opportunity to work with James Jackson. He is a Star. Sincerely, ~~ Bill Laymon www.BillLaymon.net

It's awesome how he made it so easy and comforting to lay down some tracks with just the right taste of mixing and mastering. My music never sounded so good. I always get complimented on his engineering technics. The man surely gots the skills it takes to produce a good quality song. He should call his buisiness "Finishing Touches" instead.
