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.

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!!

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.

Alex has taught my son and me for roughly five years now. We were both beginners when we started, and Alex used his own version of the Suzuki method that combined traditional Suzuki (learning to play mostly by ear), sight-reading, and Alex's careful selection of ensemble songs. He is wonderful with kids and adults alike: patient, warm, and creative. I have been particularly impressed by his ability to engage the young (and sometimes the old) when they feel stuck. He is a skilled musician and a great teacher: highly professional, conscientious, and genuinely in love with both music and teaching music. I can't imagine a better instructor.

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!

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!

Lynn is my music hero ! She can listen to any song and write down the chords. She will adjust to make it easier or harder whatever your abilities. I have a busy schedule and often don't have time to practice between lessons and she is cool with that. She also will adjust lesson times when she is able which fits my hectic schedule. I'm glad my first guitar teacher "fired" me ....that allowed me to meet Lynn

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

I have held Ed as a dear friend for over 40 years and know his charcter of loyalty, integrity and absolute strong moral principles which have strengthened our frienship. As a musician he envelops your senses with emotions having the ability to feed your soul in harmonious delight, no matter what the genre. As an Artist I am in awe of him. It was an immensely great pleasure to commission Ed Salazar to place on canvas what I had envisioned. He is a repository of Knowledge and skill that is transcendent. The uncanny gift in his strokes cause magnificence to unfold. Ed Salazar accurately captured my every thought and feelings, Surpassing all my expectations, beyond my wildest dreams. I anxiously look forward to our next Project.

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.

Jason Martin is a thoughtful dedicated musician who has a great teaching style. He is always prepared, professional and patient. His drive to better himself while pushing others is what is truly special about Mr.Martin. He has been playing for over 20 years and it shows. He is comfortable teaching Metallica as well as Scruggs. He has an amazing selection of instruments so you can try different tunings or stringed instruments. He has you work on pieces of your interest right away, which keeps you engaged. I do not think you could find a better teacher anywhere.

    I am looking for a pianist to play before our wedding ceremony for approximately 20 mins, as well as during our processional and recessional. Pop/rock repertoire is key as we would love some unconventional options for the recessional (i.e. an arrangement of Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" would be pretty amazing). Our wedding venue has a baby grand piano for your use.
