Clarke is a talented piano player with an impressive repertoire of classic compositions. He has an affinity for the music of Alkan and Rachmaninoff and his talent for playing these composers' and others' arrangements is inspiring. He is a supportive and encouraging teacher and is able to focus lessons to the level of the student. His teaching techniques are professional and based on standard piano pedagogy, but that does not mean that he will not try more unorthodox methods if needed to help the student progress. I highly recommend him if you are looking for a technically proficient, energetic, and giving piano teacher.

Clarke is an excellent educator. He pulls not only from his training, but also from his wealth of experience in the professional world. He is a very creative, and passionate, individual, which is made evident through one's first meeting with him. His open-mindedness and willingness to adapt make him an invaluable teacher, performer, and all-around great individual.

I came in with little to no experience and left feeling confident to play piano and sing for my wife at our wedding. She had no idea I had been training to do this so it really blew her away. I was so impressed with Clark that I replaced my own brother with him as the best man at my wedding.

Dave has been teaching my son for the past six years. My son always looks forward to his time spent with Dave. Dave is kind, patient, and fun. Dave instills a passion for music. As an educator, I believe that passion is crucial for learning. It's what makes learning so enjoyable. Not only is Dave a talented musician but an excellent teacher.

I've been going to black and white studios with various music projects for 5 years. Matt Motto and team and amazing and great to work with. They do a fantastic job at helping visualize the goal you want to achieve and making sure that is heard through your music. The pricing and structure is unbelievably fair and you get much more than what you pay for. 10/10 will return.

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.

Jim Reeves worked expeditiously with high attention to detail on my recording project. Throughout the process he was honest and candid, sharing tips from his decades of experience in the audio recording industry. I had a slightly different project request than other clients but he tackled it with devotion to ensure I was completely pleased. He is well worth his rate, because I have found he is more transparent in pricing than nearby studios, and Jim works much more efficiently to create excellent quality end results. I am happy to recommend him to my friends and colleagues.

Chandra Pointer Point Of Elegance Event and Wedding Consultants I had the pleasure of meeting this talented brother 2 years ago. As a beginner/novice at creating video content for my business, I was worried Zernul wouldnt have the patience I needed to complete my project. He is patient, professional, and a joy to work with. I was in awe when i saw the finished product for my promo video. Seeing myself on the screen coupled with his expertise, I was amazed with the finished product. He makes video creation simple. He is easy going and down to earth which made working with him a blast!. Zernul is innovative and it amazes me how he makes his clients look like seasoned professionals. Trust me. He is your guy for all things video marketing/videography.

What I love about this business is that they ask questions that I never would have considered. (You don't know what you don't know, right?) They care about the branding, quality, and marketability of my videos. He made me feel EXTREMELY comfortable in front of the camera, and he was very patient with me despite the number of flubs I had. They captured my personality, my expertise, and my passion for the work that I do. This company is the motherload of video & sound production!

My son took percussion lessons from John Marrella throughout high school. During that time his skills improved tremendously. He became a well-rounded percussionist and enjoyed many achievements during this time, including Colorado All-State Band, Top of the Nation Honor Band, and superior ratings for both his drum and mallet performances at Solo and Ensemble Contests. I also took xylophone lessons from John. I was a total beginner, having never learned to play an instrument. With much patience, John taught me how to read music and to play with proper technique. John was always encouraging and positive, yet always guiding me to improve in my playing or form. I highly recommend John as an instructor. His experience in playing professionally, his expertise as a percussionist, his patience, and his ability to explain things clearly make him an outstanding teacher.

Many artists and bands record their own demos. Many can use backing tracks live. But if you want to go to the next level, to work with a recording engineer who is really a producer, contact Brian Cook of Logic Pro Chicago. Brian taught me how to use Logic Pro and MainStage. He worked on several of my songs, for very different projects. But whether the style of music was alt rock, blues, folk, or EDM he'd take them to another level. He transformed songs that were recorded on a laptop into big productions that sounded like they were recorded in a five star studio. They no longer sounded stiff, starched, and digital. Brian's a true audiophile, with a collection of analog and digital equipment that will make your tunes sound better than you heard them in your head. He can add effects you'd never heard of, and burnish your tunes in ways you may have never considered. 5 star engineer!

I’ve worked with Brian on several different music projects over the years and there’s a reason I keep coming back: You always get far more than what you paid for. His recording techniques are awesome. He uses multiple mics in multiple places to give you lots of options. You’ll fall in love with the raw recordings, but hold tight for the mixes. I’ve brought in several bands that weren’t very gear savvy and Brian helped design everything from our guitar tone to what we went for esthetically. He’s a great recording tech, but it’s as a producer where he really shines. Most studio’s expect you to come in and do everything yourself, but Brian works with you to help make the record you want to make.

I worked with Brian about once a week for over a year on mixing and recording my solo album. Brian is extremely patient with his clients and very knowledgable and professional when it comes to recording, mixing and mastering musical compositions. He took my ideas and made them sound professional. He can also add his own musical ideas to enhance songs (if you want). I have worked with several "big budget" music studios with all the big monitors and leather couches but after working with Brian one-on-one I don't feel the need to work with anyone else anymore.

Jake recorded, mixed, and mastered two full-length albums and was not afraid to contribute musically and creatively on the projects. We could not be happier with the result. We originally worked with Jake at IV Lab in Chicago, but as we are from Ohio, Jake was readily available with constant communication and updates on the project. He was even able to make it to the release show in Cleveland. There is no one I would have rather worked with.

Love Third City Sound! I've been recording there for several years now. High quality, very reasonable prices. Facilities are perfect--sort of funky in a good way. Old, wooden floors, a couple of drop ceiling tiles falling down, occasional garbage can spilling over. There is a full-size refrigerator to keep your beer, and there is always a bottle of Malort in case you need some inspiration. You can tell that real musicians inhabit the place. An eclectic and constantly growing variety of instruments (including a kettledrum, Rhodes keyboard, sitar/guitar, bells, etc.) is available for client use and just might inspire you to add something new to a song. Staff is the best. Bill, the owner and main engineer, is very knowledgeable and very helpful--always learning more. He is constantly investing in new equipment and likes to experiment with new recording techniques. An accomplished and versatile musician himself, he will offer criticism, advice, arrangement ideas, etc., but only if you solicit this advice. Furthermore, Bill has connections with lots of musicians and can always hook you up with good players if you want to add instrumentation to a track. All around great place to create and record!

Ok, Bill is not always punctual. But he has helped me to create 2 cd's of which I am very proud (both on iTunes and cdbaby.com). He is very easy to work with and has musical insights that make the music better. Plus, he has added musically to my music. Working with 3rd City Sound has been a great experience. If he can't help you sound good, then you must really suck. Chuck Abney

Eduardo was so easy to work with. His response to my request was prompt. There was less than a week to the event when I contacted him but he made everything happen in a smooth and stress free way. He answered all my questions and made concessions to facilitate my needs. His price was excellent, he was early and able to set everything up on time. My guests loved him; the music selection was extensive and everyone was able to get the songs they wanted. We had a fabulous time.

When it comes to recording engineers, if you are looking for the best, you have found him. Sean Daily is not only a musical genius in the studio, he is a great presence that encourages a relaxed and creative atmosphere where it is comfortable to work. That doesn't just stop at tracking either. After all is said and done, as an artist putting your masterpieces in Sean's hands, you can rest assured that he will put in every ounce of effort when making your art sound the way you want it to. I have had only great experiences working with this individual, and I highly recommend his work! Give him a call, or shoot him an email. I guarantee you will not be disappointed!

I grew up with Sean as a child, and then we lost contact for a while. Who would have thought separately we would both endeavor to pursue music! Sean is real easy to work with in the lab. He he branches any and every idea he has on the purpose of furthering the project you are working on, and once he gets a feel of your style and talent, everything else is automatic. If it were possible.. I would rather not have anyone else turning buttons for me! ECHO BASE FOR LIFE! #BLACKFLAG #INVISIBLEHAND

Jake is a dynamic young producer. I was blown away by his equipment and ability to navigate his studio and use exactly what he needs. He has a portfolio full of everything from hip hop to hard rock, and as an artist, how comfortable he made me feel was most important. I feel like it directly affected the quality of my performance and helped me get the product I desired. If you want incredibly clean, lively production, I wouldn't recommend anyone else. Jake has a modern ear for every genre of music!
