Michael is a wonderful guitar teacher. We are working on classical guitar and jazz. He has an extensive musical background and plays the guitar beautifully. He has the ability to verbalize technical corrections, (such as correct hand positions), music theory and voicing. He also expresses genuine interest in the progress of his students. He would be a great choice as a guitar teacher especially to avoid early mistakes that affect your playing. He is also very pleasant, punctual and will travel to your house for lessons.
I hired Karen for my wedding and she absolutely exceeded my expectations. I met with her at a coffee shop and we immediately hit it off. She was able to capture my vision and put it into words. She brought magazines with flowers and I would describe a look and she would find the picture to give me a visual. Not only did she create beautiful arrangements, she helped me with some planning, organizing and room placement. She very evidently loves what she does and her honesty and genuineness were what I admired most. I gave her have a lot of freedom in her arrangements and she did not disappoint. Karen is a true artist in her field.
Kevin, You ROCK!! We had so much fun listening to your music the other evening at the birthday party bash. We especially enjoyed when you played oldies by the great artists of the 60's and 70's. The Beatles are my favorite group and you played their songs to a tee....Their "Birthday" song was so appropriate. You're quite the entertainer!! Thanks for a wonderful time. Everyone had a blast because of the joy your music brings. I can tell you really love playing music because you kept the audience wanting more. You're awesome and fun!! We're amazed that you can play so many different music types. Will you please play at my wife's birthday party next month? We would recommend you to anyone. We'll be watching for your public gigs and will try to attend all of them! Your very ADMIRING FANS.....Mike and Genie
I hired Gary to play for a cabaret I was doing at the Stanley Hotel! It wasn't last minute but it was a short turn around. He was so professional and knocked it out of the park. From a performer standpoint he followed, took direction and was profecient in all styles of music. I have hired him to do another cabaret event this year and cannot wait to have a wonderful night of music!!
Ive taken guitar lessons with Gene for over 5 years. My guitar experience prior to meeting Gene was very limited. So limited that I didnt even own a guitar pic nor how to properly hold/use one. I never felt that I needed guitar lessons as I had taught myself many other hobbies in the past. Practice makes perfect was a motivational phrase I often told myself. It wasnt till a failed audition at my local church that I realized my practicing wasnt producing the results I had wanted/expected. I started working with Gene and immediately identified that a majority of my current abilities were based upon improper techniques. I didnt fully appreciate or understand proper technique as its affects were not always apparent in my playing. As my lessons progressed and technique improved, I realized that my motivational slogan wasnt complete. I now say; proper practice makes perfect. Working with Gene got me back on track with learning to play guitar. I have confidence when practicing knowing that the time Im investing is not being wasted on bad habits. A lot has changed since starting lessons with Gene. I re-auditioned at church and made the worship team! I regularly played lead guitar at my church and was content with my playing ability. I decided to stop lessons as I now had a solid foundation and figured that I could pick up anything I didnt know from online videos. This was one of biggest mistakes Ive made. Quickly after being on my own, I began to realize the lacking quality and musicianship in the countless tutorial videos found on YouTube. Its easy finding online song lesson, however, its very rare to find someone teaching it correctly or true to the album. I remembered working with Gene and not only learning the EXACT riffs and leads to a song, but also the artists style, tone and effects used. Over the years I became accustom to learning and sounding just like the artist I was trying to replicate. This quality of instruction I have only been able to find while working with Gene. I noticed that my interested in playing guitar faded after I ended lessons. I just didnt have the excitement to learn new songs or challenge myself to play better on the ones I did know. After a long sabbatical I decided to start back up lessons with Gene. Fast forward a few years; I now look forward to practicing nightly and regularly play with multiple churches within the Denver Metro area. I would not be where I am musically today without Genes guidance and inspiration. Hes a great mentor and continues to challenge me to be a better musician. Looking back, if I could change anything about my experience with Gene, it would be starting lessons with him sooner and never taken a break.
Egemen is an exceptional instructor / private tutor that builds the class based on the particular needs of each pupil. He meets with each individual to define goals for the class. Then, in order to reach these goals, he identifies the strengths and weaknesses of the pupil, and prepares the contents of the class accordingly. He never hesitates to take the extra step to come up with material that best suits the capabilities of the particular individual. No matter if you're interested in music theory, music composition, electronic music, or piano, Egemen is an inexhaustible resource that will keep you impatient for the next lesson.
I took my 15 year old daughter in to Greg for her first recording experience. As Greg has said on his website, you need to "ask the right questions." We did not even know where to start. Greg and his awesome crew welcomed us in and over the course of a few months, my daughter has recorded four great songs with musicians that Greg provided, her songs have been mixed and mastered and they are amazing, Greg and his crew have filmed a video for one of the songs, and Greg has helped immensely with teaching us the ropes of marketing & the music business. If you want suits & ties, DO NOT go to KMG. This crew loves and lives music. If you want genuine people who will listen, embrace you like family, and work until all hours of the night, then call KMG. Their equipment and studios are top of the line, and with the expansion Greg has done, I have to think, KMG has BEST equipment between LA and Nashville. We have been extremely pleased with our time there, and with all of the talented people who work there. Frankly speaking, I have a lot of years in college & I can't do any of what Ryan can do to engineer a song at the soundboard. The instrumentation, computers, electronics, and sound quality is not something you get sitting listening to a professor. These guys have extraordinary talent, and it's all in one place at KMG. If you are considering recording, definitely give them a call.
Tami Meise is a gifted, gentle, humorous teacher for students of all ages. She is an extraordinary pianist who can play in all styles from classical and pop to jazz and rock. She is also a brilliant songwriter and coach for those who wish to explore their creativity. I give her my highest recommendation! Dr. Vicki Burrichter, (Dr. Vicki Vocal Coach); Artistic Director, The Boulder Chorale; Artistic Director, The SOAR! Youth & Adult Choir
David was both professional and very personable. He asked us what kind of music we wanted. i told him my wife liked blues and i liked New orleans style music, even henry butler and professor longhair and he obliged. Our guests enjoyed it very , very much.
Anton Smirnov has performed several concerts in a number of venues I have been honored to host or attend. His performances as a solo violinist are none other than that of a skilled master. His devotion to technical precision coupled with his engaging personality serves to make a connection and communication with his audience that is well deserved. Whether accompanying or leading he demonstrates an ability to work with others to consistently produce the highest quality music, and musical experience. Anton is serious as a performing artist, which I am convinced is born out of his reliability, dependability, and timeliness, but most all his dedication and devotion to music and his art. It is always a pleasure to work with and see him perform.
I have taken both classical and blues guitar lessons from Rick for many moons. I like his style ... challenging but also laid back! If you are just starting to play, he is great with beginners! If you are looking to sharpen your existing skills, he's your man as well! You won't be disappointed!
Danny taught my son classical guitar for years with incredible results. Made it a pleasure for him to learn and play. For myself, he has provided the most incredible professional instruction on the subtleties of playing blues and rock guitar beyond my expectations. It's like having Jimmy Page and Stevie Ray showing you the way. Oh, he plays better them both as well. His classical guitar playing like his electric is mezmerizing.
Mesmerizing and soulful, Kim franco is a true STAR on the inside where it counts, when the cameras aren't rolling too. A generous and gifted musician with tons of experience and wisdom she will help you up your game, in music and life!!!! Get it.
I could not be happier with our experience with Jason! He really made our engagement pictures special and unforgettable. He is patient and really took his time making sure that our pictures came out exactly how we wanted them. I would say he had an artistic approach to a some what traditional photograph. I would highly recommend Jason to anyone that is looking for high quality work with a laid back attitude.
Bob and the Dr played with four other band members for a private party in Parker last night. Wow! The first set transported me to the Village Vanguard as we listened to Miles Davis and other great jazz. Each musician is supremely talented,in their own right, but the real alchemy occurs when then blend. .. amazing performance by all, with an encode of Spooky that left all clamoring for more. Can't say enough about the music, the arrangements, Bob Neuwoehner's original compositions. The evening was a huge success, and Blue Stone Mojo was an integral part of that. Bring these gifted pros to your event, you will be glad you did. Eric Zelt, Parker CO.
Sean is amazingly talented and awesome to work with! It was very easy to reach him (through email) and to communicate with him the vision I had for my painting! He was also very flexible with me when I changed my mind regarding the size of the painting. From the "photo shoot" of my dog to the finished product, the process was fast and the result was phenomenal! The best painting I own and one we will cherish for the rest of our lives! Thanks Sean!
Our family LOVES the music lessons provided by Miss Lyza! Our kids ask for more constantly. While her musical knowledge and proficiency is at an incredibly high level, the best part for us is her dedication to providing what is just right for each child and helping them to develop their own interests and talents. She aligns each lesson specifically to the child, incorporating elements of performance, rhythm, dance, culture, instruments, and voice. She has done lessons for each of our three children and no two lessons are ever the same. She is exceptionally encouraging while maintaining high standards for growth of the child. I strongly recommend her for use with private or group lessons.
Ben is very personable, patient and encouraging. He taught me how to play ukulele, guitar and a little bass. His depth of knowledge in regards to blues, specifically blues guitar, is astounding. You can definitely tell he is passionate about what he does, which in turn drives you to try your hardest.
Vi Wickam is an exceptional and versatile musician. He is a rare musician who is equally at home in a tuxedo playing for an elite soiree or in blue jeans playing in a bluegrass jam. Last summer I contracted Vi Wickam to perform for 200 guests at the Opera Fort Collins "Songs in Summer" garden party at the Hixon home. As a strolling violinist he played everything from classical violin melodies to old time and Celtic fiddle tunes. Vi is also the founder and first violinist with the Fort Collins String Quartet. His traditional music includes guest appearance with bluegrass and old time music bands and recordings. He is also releasing a much anticipated solo CD this Spring! I highly recommend Vi The Fiddler for any event. He is reliable, courteous, and professional. Quality matters!
