I have taken lessons from Michael for about a year for both jazz and classical guitar. Michael is very skilled in both genres and equally adept at teaching either. He also has a degree in pedagogy, he didn't just pick it up to pay the bills.
I have been taking lessons from Jerimiah since August 2016. He has a wonderfully welcoming and positive attitude, which makes his studio a stress-free environment to improve your playing and challenge yourself. He is very accommodating of students' busy schedules, and is always responsive to text and email. He is very attentive to individual students' goals, and is proficient in a diverse repertoire from musical theater to jazz to classical, both for piano and vocals. He puts on seasonal recitals for his students, which is helpful for student goal-setting and performance confidence. I would recommend Jerimiah to vocal and piano students of any age or skill level. -Dan N.
Love his method of teaching...to the child's particular interests. Songs that they love. What a great motivator and it works! Kevin is very thorough and uses technology to enhance the lesson and practice times. He has also incorporated fun opportunities to encourage playing with others like Jam Band Sessions and playing alongside his performance settings for the kids to get a real sense of being a musician.
Catherine is such a great teacher! She has helped me find my voice in Jazz as well as gain confidence in my daily life. I really look forward to our weekly lesson. I went from almost no vocal rage to two and a half octave range. I will continue lessons for a while!! She has become a great friend too. I am a 29 year old tattooed hairstylist and she has always been so welcoming and kind to me. Thank you Catherine, I am recommending her to many of my clients.
David played lead guitar in my band. He is a "walk on" quick study for all types of music. He gives 110% with a top quality performance. He is committed and reliable for the job at hand. Nothing went wrong, but if it did he could pull out of it.
Tomorrow is my second lesson with Wil Snyder. I have been away from the piano for over 40 years. I was strictly classically trained and have no desire to resume to this form of study. I expressed a desire to try a new approach to hom. Wil spent most of the lesson listening to me and has set me on a new path of learning based on the jazz approach to music. He will teach me know more about music improvisation, piano theory, and chord structure. My first lesson has been to practice the II-V-I chord progressions, circle of the fifths, and major scales along with finger exercises. I realize that I need a lot of practice, practice, practice! But I am excited about this and believe that Wil will help me reach my goals. He seems knowledgeable, and genuinely interested in imparting his knowledge to his student.
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!

Eric is a very talented teacher who relates well to his youth and teen students. He mixes it up well to teach the basics and traditional beats in drum music, but is flexible to work on student's interests so learning stays fun for them. My son loves the variety in music, and talking music of all types with Eric.
I would most definitely recommend Sydney's piano lessons! She is a very helpful and patient teacher; not to mention, she is also a very skilled musician. Her piano lessons have set a great foundation for me in music. The knowledge that I have from her lessons helps me to play with other musicians and to play in my school marching band. I have learned much about music theory from Sydney as well as a love for playing piano. If Sydney hadn't moved away, I would still love to have her as my piano teacher today.
Nothing but positive stuff to say about Jeremy and his staff! I love going to his studio for practice and to jam. It feels wonderful showing up knowing I’ll get top notch treatment and experienced instruction. If you’re looking for a place for instruction, to record, band practice etc. THIS IS THE PLACE TO DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wasted time and money at Guitar Center! Never again! Modern Music Studio is the place to be!
Scott provided a 4-piece bluegrass band for my sister's wedding. He was knowledgeable and learned all the songs we needed for the toast and first dances and played them well. He was willing to make changes at the last minute and he was very professional. Great band!
Awesome jazz band and extremely professional. Will definitely highly recommend this company!
All night long during my wedding reception, the praise was relentless: "Where the hell did you find this band? They are incredible!" The Funky-Bots absolutely slay! I'm a musician myself, so it was really important to me to find a band that was tight and fun and played music with a real groove that will make people dance at my wedding. I sampled dozens of bands and got tons of quotes, but the clip Stephen sent me of his bandmates playing stuck out immediately. This isn't some corny neighborhood bar band with a rigid list of songs to choose from. The Bots are impeccably trained professionals, and everyone at my wedding could sense they were different. From the first meeting with Stephen, I felt at ease with his professionalism and confidence. He and his band never balked at a request, and were willing to try out anything, and everything they tried succeeded. Paige, the singer, has unbelievable poise and soul in her voice; she is a rare talent that you aren't going to find in most wedding bands. I could tell the band spent a lot of time practicing our songs, and they had fun with the arrangements. That energy and looseness carried over to the crowd; people can sense when the band is having fun, and it just makes the whole show exponentially better. The Bots came on time, were prompt with setup and flexible with the schedule, and were all around kind and gracious people. My only regret is that they couldn't play longer. I will recommend them to everyone I know till the day I kick the bucket. Thanks so much, y'all!!!
We received percussion lessons from Kevin Keith. He not only is an excellent musician, but he is a wonderful teacher. He is very knowledgeable in many genres of music, from solo literature, to band/orchestral music, to jazz. Of which, he shares his knowledge and experiences with his students freely. He is very hardworking and enthusiastic to ensure that his students get a quality education. He is great in communication, both with the student , in ensuring understanding of lesson materials, and with the parents on updates on how the lessons are progressing. He has a very patient and friendly disposition, that would allow anyone to feel comfortable in working with him. He has been a wonderful teacher and mentor for the past 2.5 years.
I extremely enjoyed listening to The Icons as they played many classic hits such as Led Zeppelin's Immigrant Song from the '70s. After the concert was over, I found out that the band members were not only remarkably skilled musicians, but also really genuine people who were very friendly! Now that I am 21 years old, I am looking forward to being able to attend to their other private concerts! You people rock!
This Band is amazing. They are professional and know how to get people dancing.
Mature, professional, experienced, seasoned. Mobile live musicians and DJ's are largely a fly-by-night bunch. I have been doing this at a serious top-shelf level for over 15 years, and I take every event as seriously as though it were my own. Music and entertainment are one of the most important aspects of your function and the quality will reflect on you for years to come; don't cut corners with a budget-priced newbie.
