Our daughter (Kivi) started with the recorder in 4th grade, and soon graduated to clarinet. By Middle School, she was taking lessons from a classical teacher who advanced her skills markedly. Upon reaching high school, she was in demand by the jazz band - whose leader persuaded her to take up the saxophone. Kivi loved the sax, and loved jazz, but clarinet remained her first instrument. I thought of the great jazz clarinet players: Pete Fountain at the top of a substantial list. But we could find no one who could teach jazz clarinet. Finally, we attended an event at VanderCook, and one of the presenters gave us Jon's name. Kivi studied with Jon for about two years. I was disappointed with the amount of time Kivi had to spend practicing Jon's lessons - what high schooler has time for anything? Nevertheless, Kivi learned a great deal from Jon, and was the only student to ever perform a clarinet solo in our high school's jazz band history ("Jack the Bear"). Jon was unique in my experience in that he taught what Kivi wanted to learn - rather than imposing a rigid course of instruction. If you are considering private lessons that offer something both valuable and unique, please look no further than Jon Novi.

Matt is a wonderful teacher! He takes time to learn what kind of musician YOU want to be and what YOUR musical tastes are and develops your lesson plans from there. Some of the things that he has taught me have stuck with me years after his lessons. Highly recommend.

I would not be the singer and artist I am today without the instruction and guidance I received from William Powers. His years of professional operatic experience and enthusiastic teaching style have given me both the tools and technique I need to compete in the extremely demanding field of opera, as well as the confidence to believe in my talents. His support and mentorship continue to shape me as an artist, and any student of voice would be fortunate to have William Powers as a teacher. I recommend him whole-heartedly and without hesitation!

I love working with Paul! I've been studying guitar and electric bass with him for over two years now. The growth I've experienced as a musician has been tremendous, and we have a blast together during lessons. He's funny, laid back, patient, and super smart (REALLY knows his stuff). You can tell you're working with a professional musician here. I love jamming together, our weekly lessons are the highlight of my week.

Matt has been teaching my daughter piano for about 9 months now and we have really enjoyed him. He is patient and imaginative when engaging children to learn an instrument. My daughter has really learned a lot in a short amount of time and is enjoying the piano more and more. He is prompt and courteous. And a very talented musician. We always love it when he treats us to play something. So grateful that we found him.

We initially hired Brit and her colleague Cassie to play strings at our wedding ceremony. When we discovered Brit is also a talented vocalist/guitarist, we hired her to sing/play for our cocktail hour AND she played our first dance live. She put a ton of time into preparing, and it showed. Everything was perfect and I really appreciate her level of dedication. Thank you Brit & Cassie!

Dollar for dollar, hiring The Band Sundance was the best decision we made in our wedding budget. The band gave us a great experience from beginning to end. We had numerous guests say we had the best or one of the best receptions they have ever attended because of the music and our dancing (obviously aided by the music). They kept asking where I found them and how much I must have paid to book them. As great as the band was, they did not detract from us as a couple. Jim and the band planned everything to cater to us. They provided a DJ for the breaks, and a few songs we wanted outside of their repertoire were played on break. They even let me sit in for a song. I found them through this site, and did a lot of other research on them before booking. We wanted a band who could provide the 1940s big band sound for swing dancing and also play contemporary rock, pop, and country with everything in between (50s, Elvis, 80s, polkas, waltzes, etc.). Moreover, we wanted a band who played both “In the Mood”and “Uptown Funk” well. Hard to find, huh? Well, here they are. They read the crowd well and knew what songs to play to keep people excited and on the dance floor. They have a full sound with keyboards, drum set, lead guitar, bass guitar, trumpet, sax, and vocals, and they blended very well as a ensemble. They helped give our reception such an amazing energy. This praise might seem effusive from anyone who has not seen them, but you cannot go wrong with these guys.

Kathryn was exactly what I envisioned when I set out to find a jazz singer for my father in law's birthday party. Her voice is seriously gorgeous and she was very easy to work with. She was flexible with me throughout our time planning the gig and was able to accommodate all of my requests. While her song list is quite vast, there were a few special tunes she specifically learned for this event and they sounded fabulous. She found the perfect accompaniment in a very talented guitar player as well. Throughout the time Kathryn performed and for hours afterwards I received compliments from other guests for finding such a talented duo. The men and women alike were very impressed with the quality of music, song selections, appearance, and demeanor of both musicians. Everyone thought the music really added something special to the party. Most importantly, my father in law was absolutely amazed with what wound up being the perfect gift for him. He was very impressed and I was so happy to see his face when Kathryn sang one of the songs she especially learned for us. He'll never forget it. I'd hire Kathryn again in a heartbeat.

Pete is an awesome teacher. I was able to learn many chords within a 2 month time period. Now I regularly sing at open mic's with my guitar instead of having my friend play guitar for me. I definitely recommend Pete as a guitar teacher.

Greg is the best! He is an incredibly talented musician. He is B able to adapt any piece to your abilities. He wants you to play pieces you're interested in. His encouragement was kind, but firm-- which is exactly what I needed. He held me to a high standard that I was eager to meet. He has a great sense of humor, which made lessons fun and stress free. I highly recommend Greg!

Eric was outstanding!! We booked him two days before the party. He took the time to review our requests and desired music. The one song requested for my husband he knocked out of the park! Eric welcomed requests and really made the audience feel a part of the music and the party. All of our guests contacted us after the party to say what a wonderful time they had and how much enjoyed Eric. Would highly recommend!

He was very professional and a great musician. Would be great for dinner music/background music. Not as good for assisted living entertainment as this population did not "understand" his music.

    The Ron Harris Music Group was terrific! Ron will create a wonderful evening of background music perfect for a party when you want your guests to socialize. Ron took care of all the details including coming out to our venue ahead of time and checking the space out! Ron and his keyboardist played pop music, jazz, oldies-a wonderful range. He also chose the right volume for the party space. The Ron Harris group are excellent musicians and really nice guys. I recommend them wholeheartedly!

    A crooner / singer and she was great! It was for an in-home 50th wedding anniversary celebration for my bosses in-laws who are 87 and 90 and they loved it, so thank you!

    We hired Davin to handle the music for a friend's memorial service. We did not give him much time, but he was able to quickly hire musicians and pick songs and interlude music which added so much to the service. Afterward, many people commented on his beautiful and touching performance and on how powerful the music was. He added so much to the service and we will always be grateful for the way he helped to honor our friend. We highly recommend him.
