Thank you Nick for making my daughters Engagement Party one to remember. The DJ music and your sons solo music had everyone on the dance floor. We enjoyed it so much and received a lot of good feedback. We also loved the photo booth and all the pictures. Thank you for your solo at the end it was awesome! I will let you know when my daughter sets her wedding date. Joanne
I met Gary about 15 years ago, when I moved to the States. His rock music teaching program for aspiring musicians of any age, grouped by skill level and interests rather than just age group, grabbed my attention the first time I visited the (now defunct, unfortunately) East Coast Music store. I joined his program, and before I knew it I became part of many bands that he formed over the years, making lots of new musical friends in addition to improving my skills. Gary's music talent is unparalleled: he knows thousands of songs across different genres by heart, his soloing skills are amazing (especially in jazz and rock) yet he only uses them artfully to refine the sound of the band, complementing shortcomings of the wanna-be musicians that he is teaching love for music to. The result is that any aspiring musician, no matter the age and playing skills, is offered a joyful and enticing environment to play music in, and feel "I did it, I can do even better and I know now what to practice on next". I am fascinated by his ability to interact with children all ages, get the most out of them and make them feel proud of their performances. When I took music lessons as a teen ager, they were all about score reading and practicing passages. Of course they are important steps, but I never had a teacher like Gary who would also bring in the passion of sharing music in a band, learning from each others' mistakes, making commitments to other band members to practice and improve, performing in public every now and then as a motivating challenge to grow musically. More recently I enjoyed playing with Gary some serious jazz. His improvisation skills are amazing and head and shoulders above anybody I know. As I play my part I listen to his soulful re-interpretation of the tune in awe, realizing how much more I need to grow and I can learn from him. I don't think there is any other professional musician that like him can dialog with pro musicians and primary school kids beginners with the same ease.
Spencer & Sequoia are abosolutely amazing! I hired them to play a song for my proposal in Central Park and they were great. They played the song perfectly and really created a magical and initiate atmosphere! It was better than I could have ever imaginged. Thank you guys! 👏👏
Laura is a wonderful musician and is extremely positive. She teaches my daughter the piano and my son the violin. She also comes to the house, which is very convenient. Laura has high standards but listens to the kids to make the music they learn relevant to them and fun to play.
Barbara helped us find a piano teacher for our 2 kids. Great communication and we are very happy with the outcome. My daughters love their new teacher.
It's a pleasure working with Lisa. She is truly a professional. A very creative musician with amazing experience in production.
I have known Chris for many years as a leader and director of musicians. I know he is a passionate and talented musician. He will wholehearted work with high musical standards to fulfill his commitment to you. +Terry Wiles - Bishop
Tom is an accomplished, and very pleasant musician with lots of ability and knowledge. He is able to simplify concepts so that I am beginning to know a set of chords so that I can play a song on my ukelele, which is my goal. Perfect!!
My daughter was hesitant to start lessons, but felt very comfortable with Gabriella. She learned so much in such a short time! Gabriella is a gifted musician.
My teenage son has been Andrew's guitar student for many years now. Andrew is an outstanding teacher, mentor, and professional musician. He is deeply knowlegable in all aspects of music and musical theory as well as skilled in playing several musical instruments. Andrew is a patient, caring, teacher who nurtures musical talent in a format that is very individualized for each student. He also encourages and facilitates parent involvement in the student's musical training if parents wish to be an active participant in the lessons. Andrew also has extensive experience teaching music to students with special needs. My son, who is autistic, blossomed musically under Andrew's mentorship. The musical training not only uncovered a particular gift for music and listening, but also opened up my son's social and intellectual world, and gave him a constructive focus in music. I give my highest recommendation for Andrew as a teacher. Thank you Andrew for all the skills, knowledge, and inspiration you have given my son.
I was a bit nervous starting piano lessons in my 70s but Jonathan has given me such encouragement and praise that I am eager to take on increasingly challenging pieces. He is very attentive both to my strengths and to things I need to work on. Lessons are stimulating and very rewarding. I have seen him perform in groups and solo piano - he is superb!
We live in a private community and Dan played piano at our holiday party. He's an amazing musician and his playing sounded beautiful. He played all types of music related to all types of holidays and for people of all ages. We would certainly hire him again in the future and highly recommend him.
George is an all-around great guy to work with -- he's enthusiastic and knowledgeable about his craft, and challenged me to grow as a guitarist. I hope to work with him again in the future.
OMM is a very talented musician with a unique approach to entertaining the listener's ears. From the headless neck of his guitar to his computer generated digital accompaniment Matt will keep the party rolling.
Brian has taught both my sons to play guitar. Brian's teaching style is very engaging! Brian teaches using songs and music that is customized to his students thereby motivating the students even more. In addition to Brian's excellent teaching skills, Brian is very professional and prompt. I would never hesitate to refer him to others who have an interest in learning to play an instrument.He is also an excellent musician in his own right. We have gone to a variety of venues to hear Brian play both solo and accompanied. Brian is a treasure in the world of music!
Here at the Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts, I've had a number of opportunities to work with Ms. Kelly as a solo act and with her bands, in all of our different venues. Always professional, on time and a pleasure to work with! And musically outstanding as well!
I hired musicians from EKM to sing at my wedding ceremony and was absolutely delighted that they were also able to bring a string quartet to my cocktail hour and play for my reception. It saved me the hassle of hiring three acts and they did all of it for a very fair price. They also kept in contact with me and invited me to meet their performers before the ceremony so I would be completely at ease. They were fun and personable and I would work with them again.
A CUT ABOVE THE REST Laura and I just wanted to take a moment and let your customers know what a big part John, Vinnie and Susie (The A-List Band) had in making our wedding a memorable one. From the pre-ceremony to the last song of the evening, you guys were fantastic. We received nothing but positive feedback from our guests as well. We all felt like you guys were really enjoying yourselves. I want to especially thank you guys for the time you took to work with me on the song WE did for Laura. It was a moment we will cherish for a lifetime. I am glad we met that afternoon while seeing you perform at the Beach, We look forward to seeing you guys again! Thanks -Matt & Laura
