I've been playing guitar for over 20 years and Tom is the best teacher I've ever had. His technical abilities on the guitar and his knowledge of music theory and teaching methods are only matched by his positive and inspiring approach to being a teacher and a musician. He taught me to embrace the esoteric qualities of music while and at the same time to follow my heart and remember the value of having a good work ethic. Tom is not only a great guitar teacher, he is a great teacher in general.
More than just a teacher. I took guitar lessons with Paul for eight years. He helped me realize my natural ear for music, and allowed me to figure out what I wanted to learn. Our lessons were always different. Sometimes I would bring in songs that I wanted to learn, and sometimes he would have things he thought I should know how to play, which helped me learn similar songs later on. When I was applying to college and needed to learn how to read music and play jazz guitar, he tailored all of our lessons so that I could learn those techniques quickly and most importantly, efficiently. Paul's personality transcends the teacher-student relationship, which allowed he and I to become very good friends. Paul William is an excellent teacher for whatever you need to learn. You can't go wrong taking lessons from him.
I am a big fan of Jeremie's teaching method. This guy is amazing. Our lessons are online but that in no way diminishes their quality. I look forward to each lesson and suspect that will be the case indefinitely. He helped me find a new guitar, gave me some great tips about what to look for in an amp. He's given me innumerable pointers, pieces of music theory, sheet music (including tablature) for songs I'm interested in, and great advice about how to take stock in my progress (especially during times when it seems like I'm not moving forward very much). I don't think I could recommend Jeremie enough. If you get the chance to work with him, do yourself a favor and take it.
Vinnie was awesome! The guests could not stop raving about him. He was punctual, very professional and very friendly. His voice and music was great. He played to the audience needs and had a great variety of songs. He was interactive with the guests during breaks and played songs they requested. I had younger group of high school/college kids as well as an older group all of which loved his music. Many of the guests asked for his contact information and I'm sure I will be seeing him at parties my guests will be having in the future.
I took guitar lessons with Shane for about 3 or so years and it was such a great experience. After trying many other places that gave lessons, the experience that I had with Shane really made it easy, fun, and enjoyable. I learned A TON while still getting to pick the style of music I like. I was able to explore different types of music and different artists that Shane introduced to me, some of which are among my favorites today. Choosing Shane at TriTone music was a great decision that made for a fantastic learning experience for me.
When recording at Mama's House Dan's help and expertise were indespensible. His collection of top notch gear and know how got us a great sound and his musical sensibility was key in the success of our track. After we left the studio he was incredibly professional and punctual during the mix and master process. I couldn't be happier with the work done at Mama's House.
Excellent instructor for all levels and types of music. Taught me both note reading and tab reading and really improved my technique and enjoyment. Wish he was still here in L.A. Also a wiz with equipment tech too.
I had been looking for a chance to take my guitar abilities to the next level since graduating from college with my music business degree. While I've met many guitar players who were capable, I wanted the best guitar teacher I could find and not ONLY is Paul an excellent guitar player, but he's an excellent teacher as well. His patience while I worked through more advanced techniques was incredible and his ability to provide the learning material in simple terms helped immensely. If you're looking for a guitar player to teach you, you can find those anywhere. But if you want an amazing guitar player with equally impressive teaching abilities, Paul is your ideal teacher. I 100% recommend him without question.
Brad Neiman was exceptional with his help and direction. He was extremely nice, courteous and professional. Definitely knows what he's doing and his experience in music production shows with the efficiency of the editing and such. The studio is brand new with top notch state of the art equipment and I was honored to be the first customer. I definitely recommend checking this place out if you want a great and affordable studio experience.
I had a great session while recording this past weekend. As soon as I stepped inside I was blown away by the wall decor. For an artist, it’s nice to work with someone who truly enjoys music. They not only appreciate music but also care about the type of sound they are capturing during a session. I plan on completing my project with IMasters and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
When you first listen to his music you think he's this old dude playing the saxophone, but he's not , he's a young black man with talent beyond his years. He has a gift and a talent that shines in him. I've always liked jazz, but after listening to Rico Maatre, i like it even better.
Phil is the best guitar teacher you'll find. Extremely knowledgeable and attentive to your individual goals, with years of professional experience to back it up. Want to be a true musician? Learn from one!
Meagan is professional and conscientious. She makes the lessons interesting and fun with her attitude and music selections.. We could not be happier.
David has honestly been such a wonderful vocal coach! I really loved that he wanted to meet in a public place to discuss my vocal experience and goals, this allowed for us both to get to know each other a little and feel safe! I have been meeting with David weekly for over two months now and he has been amazing! I personally had no experience with reading music, but after his attention to detail and his thorough teaching style, I have advanced and can already read some small pieces of music. Overall, David has been phenomenal and I really have enjoyed being his student. I would recommend him to anyone that is looking for a vocal coach.
I produce music as well as perform and write songs. If you need your mix tape or album produced, I'm your man.
We have a multiplatinum producer's studio. We are offering songwriting, arranging and music production. We use Pro Tools and Logic. Vocal coaching and show creation are available.
I'm a songwriter/music producer/live/studio musician experienced in a variety of genres. I have music studio time available, and I give keyboard/percussion lessons.
I have performed with a wide range of groups over the last 25 years - ranging from playing in a percussion ensemble, singing in a college choir, playing in marching band, to touring the world with my current rock band.
i dont record by the hour but by the song, that way you can walk out of my studio with a complete project and not unfinished material
My experience comes from major recording deals, published and released original songs, major touring performances with major acts, ProTools recording knowledge to date which as a package it gives me the edge in mentoring younger talent in a way that book knowledge can't offer. I have many years of guitar experience including Rock, Classical and Folk styles both on electric, acoustic and classical guitars. I'm well versed as a song writer, I sang in bands and classically in the Oak Park Concert Choral as a tenor.
