We hired Scotty to perform at my husband's 40th birthday party. He was excellent. He's a great musician with a variety of music and he kept everyone entertained all evening! Scotty is very responsive and arrived very early to set up leaving nothing to worry about. We would definitely reccomend him for any event!

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!

Ali is amazing! She is sure to explain the music, range, songs, etc. to Isabella and makes sure there was meaning behind all of the vocal exercises they did together. She is kind and patient, has an amazing voice and was instantly wonderful with our daughter! We look forward to a long relationship with Ali as Isabella's voice coach!

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

Mr Cullen showed up on time. He was paid upfront.I did not like him having a young lady sitting on stage with him reading a book while he performed. He could have been dressed better. No stage decor. His music was excellent, but he could have introduced some his music and played a little dance music. Like I said the music was excellent but he needed to talk to the audience more. The young lady could have been of help to Jim rather than reading. It was not a good look her sitting on the stage. Lenora Crockett Eta Sigma Philo President

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.

Steven, Hope this message gets to you as I would like to thank you for your performance at the Atlanta Jazz Festival 2010.  Your band had a great set and I feel my trip up from Gainesville FL was worth the trip just to hear your band's version of Cassie's Theme by Grover Washington.  If you have a recording of that please tell me how to get my hands on it. I am so glad I made it to the concert early.  I feel that your band and Trombone Shorty were the highlights of the night and I am a Bass Player.   Can't say it enough, you guys are an incredibly gifted Jazz Band. Great work on the saxes and please let me know the name of the bass player again.  He worked the pocket well and every one of your band members played their role.  Great groove and pocket, your entire set. If you guys ever play in Florida let me know, once again, an incredible set at the Jazz Festival! Kraig G.

And not only is Steven great during the actual performance, he gives the attention-to-detail you need when engaged in the pre-event planning process. I am sorry to see Steven leave the Atlanta market ... but Atlanta's loss will definitely be Colorado's gain!

I've been taking bass lessons from Jim Coley close to three years now and the experience has been nothing short of amazing. I came into it knowing absolutely nothing about bass with the exception of knowing I wanted to play. I didn't even know the note names of each open string! I'm still learning and have much to learn but I couldn't have picked a better teacher. He's patient, supportive, encourging and experienced. I came in aiming to be as well rounded as I could be and he has covered so much ground with me in a diverse curriculum spanning every genere possible. He is also more than willing to teach you songs by your favorite bands or artists. He goes above and beyond every time and has been flexible with me at every turn. Its more than worth your time and is one of the most valuable insvestments I have made since moving here. I strongly implore anyone with the desire to learn to take some cash and spend a few minutes with him and see how it goes. You'll be glad you did!

I've been taking guitar lessons from Jim Coley for a couple of years now. I was self taught on "cowboy chords" and decided in my mid 40's I wanted to learn different styles, be able to read tabs and learn more about the structure of sheet music. Jim's teaching style has made this challenge a fun and enjoyable learning experience. The selection of music and lessons he works with me on has tremendous range and style from Classic Rock, Latin, Funk, Jazz, Blues and more. I would highly recommend some sessions with Jim. It has been and continues to be a great experience.

Jim is a great guitar teacher He caters to exactly what you want to learn, he is well equipped to write musical arrangements in tab and official notation so you have both to learn from I teach guitar at a music school and I still study with Jim because he keeps challenging me so our lessons help me be a better teacher all around !!

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!!

I had a video of my father edited, had the lyrics to a song he sang transposed onto the video along with a sing-a-long bouncing ball. The video came out great, they were quick to respond with a quote. Over the phone he was very professional and asked plenty of questions as to what we wanted done and how he thought it could be improved. The turnaround time was above par and far quicker than we anticipated. Would definitely go to again for any future needs without hesitation.

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!!!!

Derek knows his students and tailors his lessons accordingly. He's not just a guitar instructor; he's more like a music life coach helping with technique, new habits, songwriting tips and band arrangement. It's a very open and laid back environment and you don't even realize what you are learning while it's happening. Very intuitive approach. I highly recommend a visit.

There are NO WORDS that can adequately convey how happy I was with the performance. I had an intimate dinner party and needed the volume to be low. They NAILED it! Her voice is like a warm set of silk sheets you just want to wrap yourself in. The band was AMAZING. Guitar, keyboard and drums. The website asked me how it could have been better. I suppose if a rainbow magically appeared and unicorns ran up it then it would have been better but I really can't fault them for the lack of magical rainbows. There were fantastic memories made that night that will last forever. You just can't beat that. They will be hired again...and again. P.S. My date said it was her best Valentine's Day ever. Can't tell you what that means to (and for) me! :)
