Tucker provided live music for my daughter's 2nd birthday party. What was great about Tucker was that he really just set the mood in an authentic way. Other musical entertainment that I've seen at parties is largely based on getting kids to "participate". It was great to just have someone be genuine, enthusiastic and entertaining for kids and adults alike.
Thank you so much for making my birthday party a fabulous night to remember. You were awesome and everyone raved at what an awesome band I had found! I will definitely hire you again!!!! Living Cover Band Rocks!
Summer does a great job at noticing right away what I need help with and provides materials to target the problem. I told her what book I was using in my class and she purchased it right away, making our lesson much more efficient and smooth. She even went out of her way to curate a CD of a couple of my favorite bands for me to listen and analyze from. Not only is she ridiculously professional and organized, she responds promptly to texts/ schedule changes and immediately makes arrangements for the next lesson. I'm glad that I found someone who has a clear understanding of music and teaches it to ones who are in dire need of learning it. I highly recommend Summer to anyone in need of a professional and truly reliable teacher to learn music.
Ms. Lara is the best teacher I’ve ever had, and I’m really not over exaggerating. I started learning piano with her at 16 and I’ll be 18 soon so she’s been teaching me for a long while. Lately I’ve been really busy trying to graduate and handle other responsibilities and Ms. Lara has been an encouragement the whole way through. There have been times where I’d be too busy to practice and she would understand and be patient with me and help me keep up my piano playing. When I told Ms. Lara that I wanted to play Beethoven really bad for my recital she didn’t tell me that it was impossible (due to the fact that I’m still kind of a beginner) but she was just as excited for me and told me to work really hard if I wanted to accomplish my goal. Now I’m able to sight read professional music and play some hard songs by heart. She has made me really comfortable to be around her and I would say that she isn’t just my teacher but she is now my friend. Thank you so much Ms. Lara!!
I have been taking guitar lessons from Kimberly via Skype for about six years. I really like her teaching style which is systematic and focused. She tailors her lessons to my goals and time. Her teaching method is to help you gain insight and skill through patient practice of gradually changing exercises. She doesn't snow you with theory, but presents it to you in digestible amounts just when it will make sense. She welcomes questions and I always learn from our discussions. She has led me to learn techniques on the guitar that I was absolutely sure I could never learn. For something to seem impossible at the start, to seem possible a week later and to be routine a month later is amazingly uplifting. Kimberly's background was first a life of teaching herself and playing gigs with all kinds of bands in all kinds of places. She has also deepened and strengthened her knowledge by gaining academic degrees in guitar and jazz and also by studying under masters. This gives her an incredibly deep understanding of learning and teaching music, an immense skill in playing guitar, and an appreciation for the challenges of playing with other people. I especially love her continued enthusiasm for guitar and that she really enjoys teaching. I have found in Kimberly the best of teachers and highly recommend her without reservation.
I learned to play guitar when I was 12, then abandoned it for many years. Wanting to return to it years later as an adult, I wanted someone who could help me pick up where I left off. A friend from work referred me to Damien and I love his teaching style. His knowledge and understanding of music theory is exceptional and he has helped me progress tremendously. Damien takes a personal approach to teaching rather than a "classroom textbook" approach. I occasionally do events at a local venue and have hired Damien and his friends to play on several occasions and received rave reviews on his performance. Damiens musical energy flows from his fingers to the fretboard in a magical way. I highly recommend Damien to anyone looking to further their musical education!
If you are looking for a live saxophonist in Socal, Tyler is the guy. He is very professional, and he is passionate about what he does. Tyler comes prepared. He was a hit at our wedding. His playlist is classy and trendy. I would highly recommend him to everybody. My wife and I were so excited to have him be part of that memorable day.
I had the BEST experience working with Rob at Inland Empire Music. Rob was very communicative, prompt with his responses, patient, very professional, excellent musician and overall a great guy. I would 100% recommend Inland Empire Live Music for your event needs. I know I will be contacting Rob next time I need live musician(s).
Always on time, always responds to texts & calls promptly, & delivers the BEST, always! I have learned a lot just by watching, and look forward to working with him extensively in the future! And if you're just a student, be sure to check out Cliff at a live gig, because THAT's where the learning really happens!
Taylor is the ultimate Pop Music Producer! He understands every kind of Top 40/Hit Music/Swedish Pop music which is why I chose him for my project. This is a professional you will be working with. He works faster on Pro Tools than I can keep up with my eyes, and I'm a Pro Tools 10 user myself. If you are looking for a HIT SONG, this is the man you need to contact. I have worked with many producers across the country, & he is the opposite than a lot of others. A lot of other producers do NOT like to always be told different ideas and directions, because it takes up their time. Taylor encourages talk within the project at all times. He always says it's the little things that can make a song huge- so speak up! THIS IS KEY to having a song that's not only a hit, but a hit in which you feel comfortable to sing live. I can't say I WOULD go back to him, because I already AM back in the studio working on the next project! :) Taylor is embracing of any styles/flares you prefer your music to have, so let the imagination go crazy while he starts exploring any direction or fusion of directions in music you like, because he will ultimately transfer a "crazy idea" into something radio friendly. I'm a very straightforward person who needs my music mixed/produced professionally,yet kindly with a personality too, in order to make me feel non-vulnerable while recording. Taylor is the ultimate in laid-back and friendly- with a genuine kindness to the table that can't be faked or authenticated. This implies passion within his work, and it shows. Book him yourself to find out, I'm glad I did, have no regrets whatsoever and highly advise people who want to fast-track their pop careers to contact him immediately to have him start working magic.
I Learned All aspects of singing and playing Acoustic guitar classic songs. Michael ( teacher ) was very good and patient bringing my playing and my confidence up to now being able to sing and play songs with & for friends, family and the general public. Michael continues to be a great resource, I really appreciate what he has done for my playing, Thanks Michael !
Kim and her Reckless bandmates were amazing. We received so many compliments and they were perfect for our event. Professional, flexible, and so talented - the band did a great job of entertaining the crowd and I can't speak highly enough about how easy it was to work with them. Thank you Kim!
My son started formal drum lessons with Steve two and a half years ago. Steve set the bar on professionalism, flexibility, communication, and has the patience to teach music to younger kids. My son went from a kid banging on a toy drum, to a musician that could play drum set rhythms in an elementary school jazz band. We've had other instructors since Steve left the Los Alamitos area but none of them compared to his high level of attributes listed earlier.
We hired this wonderful band for our wedding. They went above and beyond to make our day extra special and worked with our budget. They even learnt our special song requests and all our guests absolutely would not stop raving about how amazing the band was. I would highly recommend.
John Brown is a talented musician. I hired him for my parents 50th wedding anniversary party. He was amazing! Played all of the songs we asked and sounded great. He even let my dad, who enjoys singing and playing the guitar harmonize with him for a few of the songs. My dad was over the moon about the experience. I will hire John again and again if I am in need of live music. Thank you John for making my parents 50th extra special!
I have worked with Bob on various levels. First, Bob provided me with private guitar lessons for several years. Bob made the learning experience fun and enjoyable. I was able to learn and play the kind of music that I wanted to play. Bob is also very patience (staying with me for so many years is a true testament to this!). My youngest son Michael also took private guitar lessons from Bob. On a more professional level, Bob and his band performed at my oldest son's (Bobby) wedding receipion. It was a "blast" with all of the guests dancing and singing. I actually received a call years later from an attending guest asking for Bob's contact information for their wedding reception (obviously they had very fond memories of the event and Bob's music). If and when my 2 remaining kids get married, I can guaranty Bob will be going the music. He makes an event a real party!!!
This group is AMAZING!!!! I booked them for my mother's 65th birthday celebration and the whole crowd loved them! Truly exceptional and superior service from beginning to end. Rodrigo was extremely helpful and polite, from obtaining details for cost--(which by the way, was sooo reasonable, given the fact that their performance is of high caliber!), to figuring what type of performance would be most fitting for the event. And Jacqueline Valderrama--- My goodness!!! What a supreme, beautiful, and most heartfelt voice!!! Although I requested mostly bolero/mariachi type of music, I'm pleased to know that they play all kinds of musical styles from latin band, Cuban, Andean, upbeat, even church music for weddings, etc.. pretty much anything you need, i'm sure they can try to work with it. They are definitely the Go-to band for ALL of your musical needs. I will tell everyone about them and will book them again if I have another event to coordinate. Anyone looking for a fabulous musical group?? I know EXACTLY who to recommend and you won't regret it! EL MEJOR GRUPO PARA TODAS OCASIONES!! NO SE ARREPENTIRA!!!! http://rorodriguez.com/home
I have worked with L.A. Rhythm Crew a few times. Larry Williams & his band are true professionals who will make your event unforgettable. They have a large song list with music for all ages. They will keep your guests on the dance floor for sure!
