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.

I have been studying music composition with Jon for over 3 years. He has also beautifully played the accompaniments for my composed songs (all of several instruments) and recorded my songs at his home recording studio. Jon is a very dedicated teacher who loves to teach, and has a deep and diverse knowledge of all things musical. He is knowledgeable in all genres of music, and will happily teach any facet of music, and any type of music that his students get excited about. His knowledge of music theory is amazing, his notation skills meticulous, and his ability to instantly transcribe or play any recorded music he hears is almost unbelievable. One of my favorite things to do with Jon is to bring in a CD of some kind of music that excites me, but that I know little about, and have him listen to it, and instantly analyze and explain it to me, from a compositional standpoint. Jon is always on time for our sessions, and is always completely attentive, creatively innovative and deeply involved in the teaching process when with me.

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 his jazz trio were a wonderful addition to our in-store fall fashion event. He and his band were very sensitive to the noise level to ensure the music enhanced the evening without overpowering guests' ability to chat or shop. His communication around details for the event was timely and professional. I would definitely hire Jerry again and recommend him to anyone interested in a trio of professional, talented, and flexible musicians.

Laura Joy recently played at my wedding and was an absolute sensation. Not only did she play the wedding songs we requested (and very well I might add), but she played an array of appropriate wedding songs without the need of any cues form the bride or groom. My wife and I were honored that she played our wedding (you would be too) and would love to see her play again anytime, anywhere. Come to Japan!

Laura understood exactly what kind of vibe we wanted for our Sunday morning brunch wedding. The entire band was super friendly and stayed to play for us even as we were cleaning up the event space. They took the time to learn two songs for us and nailed them while also putting their own style into it. Highly recommend, so much better than any DJ.

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.

I cannot express how AMAZING Kathryn and her band were at our wedding! It was the first thing our guests commented to me on: "Where did you find her?!" "She has an amazing voice!" Kathryn has a long repertoire list that is packed with songs of many genres. She also worked with us to incorporate any songs we wanted which weren't on the original list. She and her guitarist provided beautiful background music during our lunch and cocktails, and more danceable selections later on. Their music was such an important part of our event and I would hire her again in a second!

Kathryn worked with a guitarist for our event and we were thrilled with the caliber of their music. They delivered exactly the kind of music that we had agreed on, were extremely professional and the audience was enchanted. Kathryn has a wonderful voice and a very appealing style. We would not hesitate using her services again and would encourage anyone looking for a vocalist to consider using her! We could not have been more pleased! Thanks, Kathryn: you are a "Star" in our eyes (and ears)!

Nick and his mate, Sam showed up on time....ready to work and continued to play three sets during a three hour period. This is my first time hiring a band for my personal party and I could not have worked with a better pair. I will definitely use him again. Well worth the money. Nice guys and open to my inexperienced suggestions. Lol! And I haven't even mention the quality of their music (jazz) was outstanding. They were the hit and highlight of the party.

I am so pleased with Sid and Hala. We had them play for my mom's 80th birthday party last weekend. Beginning with my first correspondence with them up until they left the party, they were wonderful. I have never used Thumbtack before or even heard of Thumbtack so I didn't know what to expect. I put in the information to Thumbtack a few months ago looking for a live band for my mom's birthday party. I had no idea what a live band would cost and if there was anything available where I was looking to have the party. (The party was a good hour from any major city). So once I entered the information into the Thumbtack website, within maybe an hour or so Sid and Hala contacted me. They introduced themselves, informed me about the type of band they were (acoustic), type of music they played and told me costs in the first correspondence (quite reasonable I thought). We went back and forth several times with questions of mine and their answers and they always answered within an hour. Can you believe they were willing to drive 2 hours to my event! I couldn't believe it. No extra charge for drive time either! So we had a verbal/email commitment with them and the next week they emailed a contract that I signed and sent back to them. We emailed back and forth a couple of times over the following few months up until the event. The emails were mainly regarding song selection. They have a good sized list of songs they play on their website. I had two song requests that they didn't currently play but they were more than willing to learn for me. The day of the party they were right on time-1 pm sharp. They were professional and polite. They gave themselves an hour to set up and started right at 2 pm like we planned. They checked in with me prior to starting to ask about when they should play the songs they learned special for me. They asked if it was okay if they took a break in the middle. (Of course it was okay!) The quality of performance was 5 star and then some. Their voices are beautiful and work really well together. I had listened to several of their songs on you-tube prior and the internet quality of the music was not the greatest for some of the songs. Let me tell you that in person they are fabulous!! So much sound and talent from two people. My family threw in some song requests that they were not expecting and they accommodated beautifully. They could play the music and just looked up the words on their smart phones so they didn't make any mistakes. That was the only time they had to read lyrics. If you had not been looking at them you would have never known they were reading the music. I received compliment after compliment from our guests on how great the music was. I cannot recommend this acoustic band enough. You will not be disappointed. Well worth the money.

I am 51 years old and haven’t had any formal music instruction in 34 years. Decided it was time that I get some formal piano instruction just for my own fun and entertainment. Just had my first lesson. Vinnie assessed where I am at and what I wanted. I learned a lot about music theory that I had been missing in our very first lesson. I thought that it was an hour very well spent.

We did a lot of research to find the best band for our wedding. After getting pricey quotes back from orchestra-type bands, a friend recommended Sundance. She had attended another wedding with Sundance and had a blast on the dance floor. We went to one of Sundance's show, met the band and quickly decided Sundance would be the best fit for us. Sundance can plan a wide variety of songs and kept our crowd (ranging from teenagers to grandparents) entertained. They were able to play all of our first dance song requests and sent us their playlist in advance so we could choose songs we liked and didn't like. By the middle of the night, we were up front playing the cowbell and tambourine with the band. Everyone loved seeing the bride and groom having fun with the band! We received many compliments about the band and how much fun people had dancing. After the wedding we received a flashdrive full of photos and videos - lots of fun dancing photos! Jim and Angela are easy to work with and lead a lively and fun band that we were so glad could play at our wedding.

Do not have enough words to express how great the Band Sundance was for our wedding. Their ease of communication beforehand put both of us at ease that we would not have to worry about this vendor. The bands choice of songs kept everyone of all age groups on the dance floor. We received numerous compliments of the band. Whether it was when they were playing, or when they catered to other music the crowd liked when they were on break. Their professionalism, talent, and love of getting people out on the dance floor is second to none. I wish we could have had more time with the Band Sundance, and would recommend them to anyone looking to have a live band. Whether it was 70s-90s music or country music, the Band Sundace put on an amazing show. Also the fact they took candid photos while playing was something that went above and beyond what you woould expect of a band. Again, there are not enough words to express how great they were at our wedding.

This band was perfect! They played everything I wanted to hear and offer a specialized playlist and DJ if there are songs they might not know. The dance floor was packed all night and they were very engaging with all the guests. They had our guests and us get on stage and play instruments and sing with the band - everyone had so much fun with it. I would highly recommend this band and I got so many compliments on how the band made it one of the best weddings guests had ever attended. They also take pictures and videos from the bands view, which was an unexpected, but amazing surprise!

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.

I actually like everything about Christopher Laughlin's School of Music. We have been with the school for almost 10 years. Both of my boys play instruments and I have seen them grow tremendously as musicians. The instructors are excellent, there are opportunities for performance, and Chris & his staff go out of their way to accomodate what are often crazy schedules. If you want your child to develop a true love of music, learn how to make music, and be comfortable performing -- look no further than this school.

Pete and I regularly performed, wrote music and recorded albums together in Shenzhen, China from 20012-2014. I've traveled the world and have performed/collaborated w musicians from all walks of life. Without a doubt, Pete is one of the best. His unique melodic & harmonic guitar colorings are essential in what set him apart from other composers. Pete knows how to listen to each song and write to meet the needs of that song. Pete is also a seasoned music teacher, having 3-5 years of classroom teaching of guitar, ukulele in China as well as private lessons in the US over the last decade. And then there's performing: Pete's performed in all manner of venues, all types of bands and with eclectic and unique musicians. There's very little he hasn't experienced and so much that he is able to assist in helping student's develop. Whether you want to develop your guitar chops, learn how to song- write, pro tips and pointers on performance - Trust me, Pete Kruse is your mentor. I'm his peer and I have learned countless skills from him. He gets my full recommendation. If you're looking to book him to perform for your function, you'll be very happy with your entertainment!

I was a beginner guitarist when I met Pete. Six months later I was already playing through some of my favorite pop and classic rock songs. Pete's also taught me how to write my own songs, and we've also recorded on occasion. I'd have to say that songwriting is my favorite part about playing guitar, and I'm glad that I've got a few originals "under my belt" now.

My daughter, Piper, started her 1st music lessons with Miss Jessica at age 7. She laid the foundation for love of music which continues to this day. Her thoughtful lessons designed to suit Piper's ability, made learning fun and easy. Her uncanny patience brought them through periods when faced with greater music challenges. I appreciated her approachable demeaner and willingness to keep an open dialogue. Piper passed from piano to French horn in 5th grade when school band was offered. With the benefit of lessons from Miss Jessica, it made for a smooth transition. Thanks for 4 great years! Kate (Piper's mom)
