Thank you so much to my good friend recommended Ms Trevor to my daughter! She plays very good piano since She changed to Ms Trevor 's class.she only learned over a year. Which makes us feel so proud of her. Ms Trevor is a very nice,good patient and intelligent piano teacher.she has a lot of piano knowledge to teach all her students . As we can tell... all her students play so well on each year recital. I am highly recommend Ms Trevor if you decide your kids to learn piano. You weren't waste your money but you will get a big surprise ! At first my daughter learned piano at Camarillo Rock City ,which is much more closer to my house. My daughter didn't learn anything from there. Finding a good & intelligent piano teacher is so so important.I don't mind that it takes me 30 minutes to drive to Ms Trevor 's house each week .to seeing my daughter to getting big improvements piano lessons. All my hard work is worth it.....

We hired Jon to DJ our Berkeley, CA wedding in October 2009. We also had them play jazz music on the patio during our cocktail hour. We couldn't have been happier with JSH Music! Jon is great to work with, clearly loves what he does, and is a cool guy - not obnoxious on the mike like some wedding DJs can be. He got everybody's name right (really important!) and helped the event flow really smoothly. He was also welcoming of some of our family members and friends who wanted to play a tune with the jazz band. We appreciated that flexibility. Jon created such a fun dance party (a packed dance floor the entire night) that one of my friends decided to hire him to DJ her own wedding after ours! Looking back at the pictures of the dance floor it was obvious what a great job he did - not only was the dance floor packed, all the older guests were up dancing too, including my almost 90-year old grandmother! We highly recommend hiring JSH Music for your event - you'll be glad you did!!

I have known Jennifer Deirmendjian for 12 years now and worked with her musically on solo projects off and on as well as performances in bands. She plays and writes violin beautifully. I have learned so much from her musicianship in rehearsals on a professional level more than anyone I have ever worked with. She is patient, kind and disciplined. I highly recommend her teaching experience as she has been my mentor and inspired me in so many ways!

Taylor is an awesome guitar instructor. I started taking lessons 2 years ago, I had never taken any musical instrument lessons before. Now I have started playing in our church worship band and I absolutely love it. Taylor is a very encouraging instructor-always focusing on the positive but definitely has challenged me which has helped me grow as a guitar player. He does a great job of balancing my lessons with practical skills and also music theory. Taylor is very good at helping me set short and long term goals which keeps me motivated to practice. Taylor is also very mindful of our lesson time and always makes sure to teach to the last minute of our scheduled lesson(and then some). Taylor is clearly a talented musician and passionate about his craft-that passion comes through in his teaching, he teaches because he loves guitar and music and he wants others to love it too. I highly recommend him as a guitar instructor!

Ignition is one of the best classic rock bands around. I have hired them several times for different events and every single time guests rave about their music. Most importantly they get everyone on the dance floor! As an event planner, that spells success for a party or wedding! On time, professional, great music selection and just fun!

Dan Willard and his band are wonderful! Their music set the perfect tone for our semi-formal wedding: jazzy, classy, gorgeous. He and his group are incredibly versatile. I will use them again and again for future events of all kinds. ~Pamela Haskell

I hired DJ Salvation for my wedding at Trilogy in Nipomo. Sal was great! Very professional, reliable, and possessed a wide variety of music both in English and in Spanish. He did an amazing job as an MC and made sure the party moved along without a hitch. I highly recommend Sal for your event.
