As an adult intermediate level student, Jerimiah Owens approached me with grace, respect and an appreciation for who I was as a musician. He quickly assessed my abilities and had no pre-conceived ideas about how it should be . He tailored his approach to me, not a method, and was more than eager to engage me immediately in technique and musicality. I left each lesson feeling a sense of accomplishment and an eagerness to continue to improve my piano playing. He is personable, friendly, patient, knowledgeable, and punctual. Of course he is a top-notch professional musician in his own right, and knows how to communicate and share his knowledge and exceptional skills with ease and comfort. I was happy and honored to have worked with him, and ended my lessons only because of life changes that precluded us continuing. I recommend Jerimiah highly to anyone-beginner to advanced, youth to adult learner—he is a good communicator, teacher, and a good man.
Catherine is such a beautiful person who made me feel so welcome and comfortable taking voice lessons for the first time. She is very knowledgable about her craft, and helped me gain the confidence and skills to break out of my comfort zone and sing with other musicians :) I would highly recommend Catherine especially if you are interested in exploring jazz, an area in which she has a lot of experience to offer.
If you are seeking guitar lessons take this into account: You're going to learn the chords and strum patterns regardless of who teaches you. The trick is finding someone who is passionate about music and teaching it to others. Outstanding is not a word I sling around haphazardly, but Dave has earned it. Dave is very passionate about his music, is a very talented musician and he sincerely enjoys passing along his knowledge to others. If you chose Dave as your instructor, you will not be disappointed in any way. His price is a great value.
Michael was wonderful to work with from the very beginning and helped our vision of our special day become a reality! We wanted a mix of live guitar, singing and DJ songs played and it all came together as planned. The live guitar and singing was a beautiful touch and Michael even braved the chilly weather with us. Highly recommend this talented musician for your upcoming event!
Sarah is the best music teacher I have ever worked with. Sarah is very talented musician. She is also individual of great character. She is excellent at encouraging her students as they learn and she works very well with kids.
David is the consummate professional in addition to being an amazingly skilled musician. It was a joy and relief to know the music was in his hands. I am still hearing raves about his performance.
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.
Sonya is an absolutely fantastic piano teacher. I'm an adult who couldn't even read music when I started, but was eager to find a hobby that wasn't at all related to my very demanding job. I was instantly at ease with Sonya: I never felt silly or uncomfortable, and I've been learning really quickly. She has a strong grasp not just on the music but of piano pedagogy - she doesn't just watch me, but poses questions that push me to understand what I'm doing or trying to do, and then it sticks. Perhaps most fun is that she is letting me learn notes and chords along with a fun, popular song that I picked out - it's really helped keep me interested and excited about the process. She is also a gifted musician with a strong education and performance background. Her rates are really, really reasonable, and she's always been accommodating with time. Also - she teaches in a studio, not in her home, which made me much more comfortable at the start (although now that wouldn't bother me). If you want to learn something new, but feel like you just aren't sure how to do it, seriously just call Sonya and you'll be thrilled with the results.
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.
The Steve Manshel Band was the absolute best. We hired them to play our wedding reception, but this isn't a wedding band - they are a true band. Their live show was so much fun! We had one goal for our wedding reception and that was for everyone to dance. Steve was able to get everyone up and dancing. I mean EVERYONE! He handed out cowbells, tambourines, and worked the crowded to everyone's delight. This band doesn't just play the usual repertoire of lame wedding songs, they surprise you with great songs and play them with 110% of their heart. Steve was able to read the crowd and played something for everyone. Their skill as musicians allowed them to take the songs they played to new limits as they rocked out the evening. They handled everything in regards to the music and entertainment for the evening and were flexible in dealing with the limited space of the venue, which was completely stress free for us. People tell us all the time that our reception was one of the most fun weddings they have ever been to. This was because of the Steve Manshel Band. They will not disappoint.
My husband is a huge music fan so we spent quite a bit of time searching for a band for our wedding. He likes more of the classics where me and my girlfriends wanted pop/dance music. Daddyblue was the only band we found that played every style flawlessly. The reception was an absolute blast. Even my grandparents danced most of the night! We were so delighted. Thanks Biff!

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.
I am a classically trained musician and play several instruments. When my son asked to take saxophone lessons, I went about screening several potential instructors. I sat in on Chris's first lesson with my son and was delighted to see the innovative and clearly fun techniques he uses to help his students understand how the saxophone works and how to play it. I was completely enthralled and realized that if he had been my instructor, I would have truly enjoyed that experience and would have practiced more. My son is very happy with Chris and expects to be taking lessons for some time with him. I highly, highly recommend Chris Ruiz!
Mark is one of the best musicians and teachers I have had the pleasure of working with. Not only does he have vast experience with teaching and playing multiple different instruments, he knows how to effectively teach anyone at any age or level and can quickly adapt to any student's needs. He will go out of his way to give you the best lessons possible with an upbeat and positive attitude. He is always on time, professional, flexible and punctual. He cares greatly about his students and seeing them excel. Not only a great player, Mark is a very experienced and skilled teacher that I highly recommend!
I have worked as a classical pianist for many years, and having attended many weddings with less than quality musicians, I was quite worried about hiring a quartet for my own cocktail hour! Red Rock Strings has several audio clips and videos available online and after seeing these I was put at ease! Not only is the quartet punctual and responsive as a business, but the musicians at my cocktail hour were charismatic and entertaining. We were so glad that we hired Red Rock Strings — our guests LOVED their popular and classical music and they truly made our event extra special. Thank you Red Rock Strings!
I took guitar lessons with Danny from 2007-2012. He's an incredible teacher that strikes a balance between helping students pursue their passion and pushing them to discover new passions, ideas, and styles. After studying with Danny I went on to pursue a bachelor's of music in classical guitar performance and plan to continue on that career path. Overall a very important, formative experience from a caring teacher.
Paige is a first class teacher, singer, and musician. In our weekly lesson she helps me learn the music & find my pitches so that I'm much more confident singing with the choir on Sunday. Encouraging and patient, Paige is all about improving.
Mackenzie Gault is an amazing musician! Not only does she play her own instrument beautifully, she also brings a level of expertise and creativity to the rest of the musicians she works with. She draws out the best in others! And, she has a beautiful singing voice as well, which might sometimes be overlooked because of the strength of her viola and writing skills. I would definitely recommend her!
Christen did an amazing job at our wedding! The music was gorgeous, and it was so hassle free! I'm long distance, so we talked on the phone to pick songs, she helped us find ones that fit the feel of our wedding. Then all I had to do was walk down the aisle to her beautiful flute and guitar duo. It was perfect for us! Thanks so much!
Midnight Party Machine provides a fun and exciting performance. Each musician is extraordinarily talented and they work together to produce excellent music. The costumes are hilarious encouraging crowd interraction. I highly recommend them for private parties or shows at venues open to the public.
Fabulous musicians and entertainers! For any event or party! Reasonable priced. Can also officiate weddings!
