I sought Mr. Novi out after taking a long hiatus from piano. I have had many piano teachers but Mr. Novi is definitely one of the most fun and enthusiastic teachers I've had. I have had many years of classical piano instruction but am completely new to jazz. Mr. Novi will give me suggestions on new pieces to learn, but ultimately leaves choosing what I learn up to me, no matter what style I want to learn (classical, jazz, rock n' roll, etc). Because of this I never see practicing as a chore since I am only playing the pieces that I truly enjoy. Mr. Novi is a fantastic musician himself, it's very inspiring to listen to him play! I would absolutely recommend Mr. Novi for anyone interested in studying piano.

Jerry and the trio were a perfect fit for our event. They provided excellent music and adjusted their volume to the room perfectly. I would highly recommend the trio to anyone looking for solid jazz musicians! Our cocktail party was a huge success and I know Jerry and the gang played a huge role in this. Thanks again guys!

We absolutely loved having The Band Sundance play at our wedding! They played for over 4 hours and kept the dance floor packed all night! They had such high energy and are fantastic musicians, and the fun they had on stage was infectious! They offered a personalized playlist of hundreds of songs and we loved everything they played! They even learned a new song for our first dance and it was incredible! It was so easy working with them and they were consummate professionals! They even brought us on stage at one point to play with them, and we had such a blast! They also took their own pictures and videos and provided them to us at no extra charge! We had such a wonderful experience working with The Band Sundance, and we would recommend them to everyone!

Pete taught our son James guitar lessons for about two years. James had never played guitar prior to meeting with Pete, and I was impressed by Pete's patience, optimism and professionalism at every lesson. James can now play several pop songs and even some beginner classical music. Thanks Pete!

    Dave Brandwein has worked with our son since 2012. He was 12 years old when he began taking lessons and he is now a senior in high school. Dave's drum instruction is exceptional and helped our son matriculate into elite jazz and ensemble programs. Dave is always professional and has a great one-on-one relationship with our son.

    I have been taking lessons from Li-Ying for over 6 months and my experience has been excellent! I'm one of her adult students and have played classical piano for a few years before I started taking lessons with Li-Ying. During our lessons she provides very helpful, customized instruction on the exercises and pieces I am working on and describes different methods to help improve my technique. Li-Ying is also flexible with scheduling lessons. I learn a lot from each of our weekly lessons and look forward to continuing working with her!

    Tom provided our Family/friend gathering of 30 people with a wonderful concert of guitar music. He performed in our living room which was the path between our 2 decks which allowed for back round music to set a mood for our guests. The guests felt comfortable to sit and listen or to stroll and enjoy the mood setting of his music.

      Allison Cannon is not only a decided musician, but she is also passionate about teaching others. I've known Allison for eight years now and have heard her skill level advance with each passing year. She is hands down one of the most talented musicians I know for her age, and quite frankly most anywhere. She has done a multitude of performances and comes highly recommended by a well renown director, Patrick Henning. If you have the opportunity to work with this shinning-young, talented musician take everything you can in! She will teach you the skill you wish to have from the skill that still surpasses most well known artists.

      Steve is a great guy and a wonderful musician. Steve graduated the year before I started high school. He came back to help the saxophone section learn music for marching band and along the way, gave many valuable pointers to help us all know our instruments better and grow as young musicians. Almost 20 years later and I still regard him as an inspiration to my musical endeavors.

      SolJAMM is an incredible experience! I have personally taken piano lessons since I was young and my 4 kids have all grown up with piano, guitar or voice lessons in their weekly schedules. Let me tell you that SolJAMM's Instructors perform a service that is nothing short of REVOLUTIONARY!! I SAVED hundreds if not thousands of $$$ over the last 2 years. Using SolJAMM, with my two youngest has forever changed the way I approach personal music instruction. When I previously took lessons there was a lot of time and money wasted just making sure my tired kids were paying attention or doing the tasks they were asked to do. SolJAMM's style allows you to choose the skills you want to work on and sends you all of the necessary material to master that skill or style. They also make awesome personal response videos, live chat sessions and track/update you on your progress. It seems they have actually found a way to make music instruction an easy and fun process. The instructors were extremely respectful and genuinely care for your growth as a musician, almost feels like you are joining a team!!! Again, BEST MUSIC LESSON EXPERIENCE EVER PERIOD.

        I play in many events as a solo acoustic, but also can assemble and lead bands of any style and size. I'm an accomplished saxophonist as well, and have recorded and toured with many renowned artists. On the days I'm not playing or rehearsing, you'll find me in my well-equipped attic studio writing and recording original music for my band, The E-mics. I do record and produce other acts, including Dave Tamkin, Scottie Long, Holiday House, and many more.
