Sam is a great voice instructor. He is experienced in both classical styles and traditional and contemporary R&B/Jazz styles and has performed with numerous popular acts such as Tony Bennett and Aretha Franklin and was a successful contestant on MTV's Making the Band reality show. As an instructor, he stresses the fundamentals in his lessons and helps students to develop a solid foundation upon which they can build performance techniques. He teaches students artistry as well as technique. In addition, he is often encouraging and energetic in his lessons and is very friendly. For students of pop/R&B/jazz standard singing, he uses Michael Buble as models for students and likes developing a round, solid sound rather than the strained vocals seen in most of today's pop music. This helps students with damaged voices to improve vocal production technique and find ways to repair their voices.

I had the pleasure to work with Xen Live on May 14th, 2018 at Richland Golf Club, Middletown MD. He was very professional in every aspect: setting the speakers and the microphones ahead of time, providing a high quality equipment and being attentive to all the musicians including a singer, pianist, and violinist. The volume level was properly adjusted and the ceremony went as smoothly as possible despite the fact there was high wind at the site. I can't wait to work with Xen Live again, and highly recommend his business to everyone who is looking for a perfect wedding. Zhenya Zianouka, violinist pixieviolin.com

Alyssa is a great instructor because she gives me a biological understanding of the mechanics of my voice. Where other instructors rely on cheesy nonsense ("sing more from your heart!"), she explains to me what is actually happening in my body and trains me on how to control it. It is requires hard work, but the payoff is there. Each month I hear significant improvement in my voice and my friends do to. In less than a year I've gone from being a shy singer, to a comfortable performer.

Ms. Nicole Lamm was my very first voice teacher. I started taking voice lessons with her at about age 13, and continued for over 5 years, for all of 8th-12th grades. Being at the most beginning stages of singing, Nicole not only introduced me to a genre of music that I never thought I would sing, but that I would easily fall in love with. She brought me from an inexperienced child to a young lady, preparing me and instilling in me musicianship, work ethic and and a passion for classical music, including art song, musical theater and opera. Her teachings are affective for anyone, young or old, beginner or professional. Because of her patience and time spent with me all those years, I have been singing for over 10 and am continuing my studies as an opera singer, a career that began with her and will last a lifetime.

David performed out bu the pool at our marina. We had him him hold off on starting since it looked like we might get some rain. When his time was up he kept playing to make up fro the lost time. His sound was great, he has a very large song list and was great about taking request. We cant wait ti have him back next year!

It's amazing watching the progress my daughter has made since working with Annie. She looks forward to her piano lessons.

Words can't express how highly we think of El Tariq and his business. He was more than willing to go out of his way to make our wedding day run flawlessly, and one to remember. I chose Headliner Pro Audio because of it's high ratings, and very reasonable prices. They lived up to my expectations, and even exceeded them. El Tariq was kind, respectful, accommodating, and very professional. He covered all the details with us, and was willing to go out of his way to be there for us technically (a major concern I had if I had to handle the audio alone). Not only did he just provide the equipment, but he stayed throughout the entire ceremony as well as the reception, keeping tabs on the audio the entire time. He worked one-on-one with our singer, provided a sound check, set up in a timely manner, removed in a timely manner, and never once made me doubt his knowledge or willingness to make sure everything went well. If you need audio for any event, skip the others and call Tariq! Not only is he a calm, nice guy, but is the best one out there for audio in the DC area! Mike

Molly was the best voice coach I could ask for. I am a beginning singer that can't read music. She helped me reach my goals of finding my range, expanding it and I had a blast doing it! She has a knack for articulating complex terms into simple exercises. I couldn't recommend her more highly.

Ron gave me a lot of help when I was learning to accompany singers and saxophone players. He showed me chord configurations that made me sound like a pro. I was asked to join a jazz combo. He was also great at accompanying me as a singer.

    I highly recommend Simon for your wedding, funeral, or other need. I was blessed and honored to have Simon provide the music for a funeral service earlier this year. With Simon's talent as a vocalist, as well as his skills as a composer, pianist, organist, and accompanist, the music was superb. He worked with me closely on the planning, and his suggestions for the service were excellent, including the addition of a soloist with whom Simon had worked. Many people told me afterwards how much the music touched them and uplifted them on a sad occasion, and I was touched and uplifted as well.

    Todd Baker is the violin teacher of our 10 year old daughter. We reached out to him when we realized that she was not learning enough in her violin group in school. His individualized approach, great skill with children, patience and flexibility across a variety of different music styles has really helped our daughter advance. She loves going to her lessons and comes home inspired. We're very happy with this arrangement.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      What is a mariachi band?

      Mariachi bands are rooted in Mexican culture. Traditional mariachi bands consisted of two or more members playing stringed instruments, wearing regional costumes adapted from the charro (Mexican horseman or cowboy). Modern mariachi bands, which are likely what you’re looking for when searching for a mariachi band for hire, feature at least four members who play stringed instruments (violin, vihuela, bass guitar called guitarron) and one or more trumpets. The costumes have remained the same, but now trumpets are synonymous with mariachi music. Mariachi bands for hire often play a wide range of music, including styles originating from Mexico and adopted from elsewhere. These include jarabes, waltzes, serenades, corridos (Mexican ballads), ranchera, cumbia, and more. Mariachi bands for hire bring a festive and soulful element to a party, birthday, wedding, corporate affair, fundraiser or community event. UNESCO has inscribed mariachi music on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

      How much does a mariachi band cost?

      A mariachi band will bring your party or event alive with their fabulous costumes, beautiful playing and strong vocals. The cost of a mariachi band for hire will depend on how many players are in the group. Each musician in a performance group needs to be paid, so pricing is usually based on the number of mariachis (musicians), the location of the event (and travel time required), and the length of the performance. Day of the week also affects cost, as does day — Christmas, New Year’s Eve and other major holidays will cost more than regular days. The national average cost for live bands of all types ranges between $740 and $1,200. Depending on where you live and regional rates for performers, you might expect to pay between $65 and $120 per hour, per player. Mariachi groups may have 12-15 players available for performance at one time, depending on your budget. Here are some examples of how the number of players affects average cost:

      • Four mariachis: $300 per hour for weeknights, $400 per hour for weekends.
      • Five mariachis: $350 per hour for weeknights, $400-$450 per hour for weekends. Weekends may have a minimum number of hours.
      • Six mariachis: $400 per hour for weeknights, $450-$500 per hour for weekends.

      How many mariachis can a band have?

      A mariachi band for hire can have as many players as you like. Modern mariachi bands typically have a minimum of four players with the trumpet playing a vital musical role along with stringed instruments such as the violin, guitarrón (a Mexican bass guitar with a deep body), vihuela (a Spanish stringed guitar) and guitar. Strong vocals are also an important component of mariachi bands for hire, since one or more of the players will be singing during the performance. For a truly spectacular show, you can hire a mariachi band with 15 or more players. The medley of stringed instruments, multiple trumpets, soaring vocals, and even an accordion or harp is powerful and beautiful. Mariachis typically wear the traditional costume of charros — Mexican horsemen. The look is a very regal, monotone suit, often in black or white, with silver adornments and embroidery. Mariachi bands often wear sombreros as well. Traditional mariachi bands were only made up of two or more players, according to a UNESCO report celebrating the cultural heritage of the musical style. The style of music originated in the state of Jalisco. Now the style of music is symbolic of Mexico but is celebrated all over the world, and adds a fabulous vibrancy to any group’s events, parties and weddings.
