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.

Bob does a great job choosing music that the kids are interested in learning in both Piano and Guitar. They learn fun songs along with the necessary scales which keeps them better focused.

Review for William Powers I am a non-professional singer interested in improving my overall level of performance in both solo and choral situations. I have worked with Mr. Powers on several occasions in preparation for a vocal recital and an opera performance, and I truly cannot recommend him highly enough! Not only is he great fun to work with, he is able to quickly and accurately assess my strengths and weaknesses as a performer, and offer practical advice that I can put into use immediately. He is particularly effective in helping me bring a song to life by examining the emotional content of the music and lyrics, and then presenting it in such a way as to deeply touch the hearts and minds of my listeners. Whatever your current level of skill as a singer, actor, or public speaker, and whether you are an amateur or professional performer, Mr. Powers can give you the inspiration and the practical tools to move on to a much higher level!

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.

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!

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.

Aaron Dorfman is not only a truly gifted guitarist, but an amazing music teacher. He gave my young daughter guitar lessons for several years, and is a patient and engaging teacher. It brings him genuine joy to see the children he works with succeed on their chosen instruments. Aaron also taught me how to play guitar, even though I didn't start lessons until I was in my 40's. He was able to strike the right balance between encouraging me and challenging me -- something every great teacher strives to do. I also ended up working with Aaron for a couple of years -- both performing together live and recording my original music with him. Aaron can do it all -- he sang harmonies, played guitar, worked on the musical arrangements, played keyboards and bass, did the sound mixing. Sharing the stage with a musician of his caliber was a privilege, and I will always be grateful to him for sharing his many musical gifts with me both on stage and in the studio. Hire Aaron to perform at your next event or as a music teacher. I recommend him without reservation.

    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!
