Scott is an amazing performer, we needed a solo performer for a wedding, he opened for our band then stuck around to play in the band with us. It was an amazing addition so we have hired him fulltime. Book Scott, you wont be disappointed. Incredible, he knew like 200+ songs too!

Scotty is an amazing musician and I highly recommend him for any event. He played at my wife's 40th surprise party last night and everyone was blown away. Definitely the best solo guitarist I have heard. Thanks again Scotty!

At age 44, I've had a lot of coaches and teachers in my life and I rank Keith right up there at the top. Keith starts with a free introductory lesson for a reason - because he is not going to sit around and teach you how to play your favorite songs - he is going to teach you how to play the instrument and music theory from the ground up. If you are serious about wanting to learn to play the guitar and willing to put in the hours and practice - I can't recommend Keith highly enough.

My experience with Cordell Music has been great. He's always easy to contact, fast to respond, and flexible with my schedule. He's a very knowledgable musician, and a great teacher. I started out with basic rhythm guitar, and now I'm learning to read staff notation. Keith has been great at explaining the music theory as we go, and I've learned more than I originally anticipated. It's been a fun journey. Highly recommended!

Keith is an exceptional teacher. He is very knowledgeable about the subject matter. He does not only teach the practical side of playing guitar, but also delves into music theory. Explains in detail about why or how certain things work and is very insightful. Would definitely recommend him to anyone, only wished I took the leap sooner!

Ms. Olga is a professional and accomplished musician. She is awesome with first-time learning music students or with progressed music students. It is very difficult to find a teacher that can relate to young students, while teaching them to learn to play an instrument. She makes learning FUN and rewarding! We are blessed to have her as our son's piano teacher.

Our son began lessons with Ryan 5 years ago,after becoming bored and stagnant with his previous teacher of 2 years.With a child that was very talented and serious at pursuing a possible music career,we really wanted to make sure he had the best teacher for him that pushed him and challenged him but at the same time did it in a way that would encourage him, not discourage him.Because our son was easily bored,we also needed a teacher that could teach many different styles or genres,knew theory and could teach sight reading and was able to move at whatever pace was needed to challenge our son.Ryan worked on rock,blues jazz and classical guitar,sight reading ear training, song writing skills, improvisation only to name a few,but above all taught him to work hard and never give up.He helped him prepare for a very challenging audition to get into a very competitive music college, Belmont University. Ryan made sure that when the audition came up, our son was ever so confident when his audition time came up and was totally prepared in every possible way.Through the years,our son developed a strong sense of trust and friendship that he has been able to use as he is in college as a sophomore.While in college,our son will periodically still rely on Ryan for his professional views on different challenges. He also looks forward to breaks and summers to get together with Ryan and play,learn and get advice.It was never about Ryan making his fee,but about making sure our son was pushed during every lesson to the best of his abilities.Even if it meant staying over a few minutes or calling during the week to check and make sure he was able to work at the music homework he had given and was not frustrated.We highly recommend Ryan Strickland. He is a very professional dedicated musician that loves his job and will go over and beyond for all of his students. We feel as parents that Ryan pushed our son to help him fulfill his utmost dreams and passion and realize there are no limits.

Ryan is truly the Sherpa that guides you on the journey of inspired learning and appreciation for the guitar, no matter what your starting point. Yes, he most definitely has been to the summit himself as demonstrated by a mastery of many genres, styles, techniques, and a natural improvisation voice, not to mention his gigs and the musician company he keeps. Regardless, he knows the path and is personally and genuinely invested in helping you get where you want to go. I began lessons with him in the summer of 2013 to learn Jazz and musical theory for improvisation. Ryan has demystified the modes and helped me feel comfortable with the notes and patterns up and down the neck. He has a knack for laying out a logical step-wise approach for building a foundation that makes successive concepts more understandable. Lessons are very relaxed and often include an exchange of ideas that run from guitar care, to latest rock or jazz artists, to dumb questions you were always embarrassed to ask about music theory, to “how do you see the patterns on the neck”, to asking his suggestions on how to improve on an original song, to a variety of ways to practice or “think” about lesson material, to…..well you get it. Ryan has a depth of knowledge on so many aspects of playing music. He also has an uncanny ability to know “where” you are in the learning process and laser-like vision and ears as you play. Most often he understands your challenged moments intuitively and can offer a fix on the spot, or a practice suggestion, or a supplemental concept that puts things into perspective. Finally, I admire Ryan for his natural ability to balance the rigors of technique with inspired musical ideas. In short, you will discover that Ryan is the real deal, both personally and as your Sherpa instructor!

I had been a self-taught "guitarist" for a "long" time (like 20+ years "long"). I reached the point where I really wasn't growing as a musician, and being a jazz/fusion aficionado...I wanted to. I decided to study with someone formally, and I interviewed several local candidates; Ryan was the clear choice for me, and I got a great vibe from our very first meeting. His depth of theoretical knowledge and the refinement of his technique was readily apparent, and he expressed genuine interest in my musical influences and goals. We developed a plan to go forward, and have been working together since. I have been studying with Ryan for over three years now, and I can definitely say that I can come worlds farther than I ever could have without him. He is always pushing and challenging me, and he has always been responsive to my learning style. I am a teacher myself, so I really do value this and know how important it is. I look forward to our time together each week...just wish I could spend more than an hour per week! If you're serious about taking your music to the next level or if you just want to see if the guitar might be for you...I don't think you'll find a more qualified guide for your musical journey.

As a wedding planner when your client requests something, even at the last minute, you want to deliver. So only 1 month before the wedding, when the bride said she wanted a saxophonist to serenade her guests during an outdoor ceremony at Ventanas Atlanta, I started my search. It wasn't long before I found Cameron Cullers, who was a dream come true for my clients and for me. He was punctual, he attended rehearsal and his talent is amazing. His rendition of Babyface's "Everytime I Close My Eyes" was a perfect start to the wedding soundtrack. I loved working with him. Cameron is definitely on my list of preferred wedding vendors. He totally delivered. ~LB Harper, Wedding Planner

Donna with City Beat worked with me and my budget to create the very specific atmosphere I desired through music. The ceremony trio, social hour musician and band's performance was outstanding. City Beat demonstrated a high quality of service through their execution of my very specific and limited musical genre. Donna's responsiveness and professionalism was outstanding during our time working together. The value of the services I received is undeniable. The band was able to learn several songs for me, showing flexibility, especially considering I changed my mind several times. I will definitely be recommending City Beat's services.

Honey Bee is the right name for this amazing school because talent congregates there, works together and the outcome is just amazingly sweet. Erik and Elise, Honey Bee's owners, are amazing and accomplished musicians in their own right and, as such, they identify and bring out each child's individual talents and gifts. Talent is attracted to them because they do an amazing job bringing out the best in each of their students. Their students excel, both individually and as a group, because Erik and Elise have built much more than a music school. They've built a community that thrives on music and performing and a family that cherishes each of it's unique members and supports one another as everyone progresses, grows and blossoms. The proof is in the pudding (or the Honey, if you will). One only needs to look as far as the amazing group of artists that Honey Bee has already cultivated. Honey Bee is a school that has the caliber to develop true "professional grade" musicians and. If one has any doubt, one need only go as far as attending one of their performances!

I love HoneyBee Records!! My daughter has been taking lessons with Erik Bennett since she was eight and she is about to turn sixteen. She started taking lessons from Elise Bennett several years ago. Over the years, we have had so many wonderful experiences with recital performances, competitions, dinner theatres, studio recordings, and as a "music family". Erik has such creativity and vision and it shows through in everything he does. As business owners and teachers, Erik and Elise are both professional, extremely talented, and very hard working. They love their students and devote all of their talents and love of music into the growth of each student. Not only do they teach, they have a personal interest in the lives of each student. I cannot imagine what our daily lives would be like without Erik, Elise and the HoneyBee Family. Love you guys!!

BOOK THIS BAND NOW!! This will be the best and easiest decision you'll make. We just had April & her band play at our wedding and can not say enough good things about them! We booked April online and she was always friendly and quick to respond. We were confident she'd be good but she and the band surpassed all our expectations. They are all our guests are talking about!! They played at our ceremony, throughout cocktail hour and our dance party without missing a beat. They are one slick professional outfit of top musicians. If you want a fantastic band that will make the party, keep the party going all night, and do so with the utmost professionalism do not hesitate in booking these guys! You won't regret it! Thank you so so much!

I've seen April perform several times - whether it is solo, duo, trio, or full band performance, your guests will be taken in by her engaging style, awesome voice, and diverse song catalog!! And she customizes the performance to what you personally are looking for - from providing acoustic music for a social / networking setting... to inspiring your guests up onto the dance floor at your wedding - April will listen, use your input, and offer recommendations to make it a very special and memorable event!!

My first experience with the April Rooks Duo for our First Friday Dance Party was terrific. April was easy to work with, great communication, on time and played a terrific show with fun songs that had residents on the dance floor all night. It makes me very excited to see what she has in store for our community as I am working with her on a Jazz Night in March and then have her full dance band "Love Nation" later this year. Just fun and easy! Mark LaClaire, Lifestyle Director, Cresswind at Lake Lanier.

We couldn't be happier with our experience in both seeing JP perform at clubs and restaurants and also hiring him for our anniversary party. His love for music shines through in each show. Not only is he talented in singing, playing the guitar and the harmonica, but his music choices are always spot-on for the event in which he's performing. 5 solid stars! Highly recommended!!!

Vicki is hands down one of the best vocal coaches in the industry. I've worked with her on and off for the past ten years, and she is my go to vocal master! If you're looking to grow as an artist or to simply preserve and exercise your gift, you should consider soliciting her services. Not only is Vicki an amazing vocal coach, but her skill as a musician is also advantageous. I have worked with Vicki to train for tour dates as well as studio projects. She has even traveled with me on the road. I am fortunate to have connected with her. I'm excited about working with her again in the near future as I prepare for my next studio release.

Vicki Gray is one of the best music teachers in Atlanta with a music knowledge of over 30 years. I've tried several voice teachers and she is nothing but the best. She's very patient. She takes her time with every lesson and is not time oriented and is more goal oriented. She is my music coach and a great person. Whether you want to make a career out of your music or it's just a hobby, she will help you attain all your goals, making your sound resonate.

Derek Ferwerda is an incredible instructor. I've been a student of Derek's for many years, and the quality of instruction and the incredible amount of love he has for teaching and his students is unparalleled, and something you won't find anywhere else in the world; let alone the Southeast... I originally began with Derek as a guitar player, but after a while working with guitar he helped me find that bass guitar was my true calling. Since I began working with Derek as an amateur musician and just a kid with a dream, I have gone on to play in many local bands, record with other artists, and I've had the opportunity to share stages with some of the most incredible musicians you'll ever come across. What sets the Guitar Room apart from other schools is Derek's linguistic approach to learning and teaching music, and the very warm, loving, welcoming environment I have found with his community of students. He has an incredible dedication to his students, and will do anything and everything to help them reach their highest potential. When you come to the Guitar Room, you will find not only an incredibly talented and dedicated mentor and instructor, you will also find an incredibly supportive community of students and musicians that will embrace you or your child, and help them reach their potential as musicians and people. I couldn't recommend Derek Ferwerda and The Guitar Room any more. You won't find better anywhere!!!!

I've been working with Derek now for a few years and I have learned so much and have expanded my guitar playing more than I could ever imagine. He encouraged me to truly be a part of the music and song. At first I was afraid of making mistakes and he taught me that keeping the integrity of the song is more important than focusing on the mechanics of playing. I can't imagine taking guitar lessons from anyone else!! He is a very encouraging teacher and has an incredible amount of experience in the music industry. If you're interested in taking music lessons, I highly recommend contacting Derek Ferwerda!!

Working with Derek is an experience like no other. His intuition with each performer is the most unique and effective teaching method I’ve ever seen. He connects to each student and takes the most special gift they possess and brings it to light. His knowledge and natural gift create a teaching environment that produces professional musicians, ready to work. The Guitar Room vibe is total acceptance, a great place for musicians to find camaraderie and support, with each other and Derek.

Booking Yolife Ent. was a great experience. After planning a park photo shoot/ surprise engagement shoot.. I hired Yo Life ent. to play a couple of selection (our favorite songs) close to where I would be doing the "surprise proposal". Needless to go into great detail, DSax was there on time and the selections he played for us were awesome. He made the surprise proposal just that much more special for us and I would book him again and again.. Thank you YoLife ent.(Dsax)

David was an absolutely outstanding performer. He fully engaged the crowd and his uniquely smooth sound captivated all ages. From the young children to my 86-year old father (who happened to spontaneously join David in a song), everyone was fabulously entertained. I think David compares with Mr. Phillips who played his saxaphone at the NFL Championship Game in Atlanta.

Superb musician who tailored his performance to our gathering of 40 people for an office luncheon. In fact we had asked in advance for a specific song which he performed beautifully. Often people leave after food is served but People celebrating the holidays stayed until David finished performing. David was easy to work with, played the venue quite well.

Forest was incredibly entertaining. I would 100% recommend him if you want party. He hired him for our wedding reception, and while he had a really great selection of more "wedding" reception music, we prefer rock music. He tailored the night to exactly what we wanted. His wife also gave us the option of taking photos for us which was awesome to be able to add to our wedding collection. We will absolutely hire again if we are in the need of entertainment.
