Not just an accomplished guitarist but an actual teacher. Very adaptive but actually has a sense of scope and sequence to his instruction which, in my experience, is tough to find in a guitar teacher outside of college level instruction. Can really teach authentic rock, blues, and jazz styles.
I would not be the singer and artist I am today without the instruction and guidance I received from William Powers. His years of professional operatic experience and enthusiastic teaching style have given me both the tools and technique I need to compete in the extremely demanding field of opera, as well as the confidence to believe in my talents. His support and mentorship continue to shape me as an artist, and any student of voice would be fortunate to have William Powers as a teacher. I recommend him whole-heartedly and without hesitation!
Started taking lessons from Shaun about 6 weeks ago. So far i've learned a lot about the basics and going at the right speed. He gives assignments to do every week to help improve skills which is awesome. So far my experience has been awesome for someone that is completely new to a classical guitar. His style of teaching is easy to understand. In the end its up to the student to put in the practice to really get better at it.
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!
All I can say is WOW. The Sundance Band made our wedding one of the most fun, memorable nights of our lives! The band played songs that got the young, old, and "I-don't-dance" people out on the dance floor all night. I was worried that there would be too many people outside on the veranda instead of on the dance floor, but this was never an issue. It was a pleasure working with Jim, the manager and emcee. The band played specific live songs we wanted for our Mother/Son and Father/Daughter dance. Also, last minute, they were able to play a blues song for our intros that made our wedding party intros fun and unique. It was seamless discussing the details with Jim up until the big day, and his calm demeanor really helped ease our worries. We are still getting rave reviews about the band weeks after the big day. Would highly recommend the band to anyone.
Alyssa was my pianist for my artist diploma recital back in March 2016. She was super flexible with my busy schedule, was always prepared for our rehearsals, and most importantly she plays incredibly well with so much love for the music. It's hard to find much better. :)
We highly recommend Vinnie Hines at Artist Collective (Chicago)! We have attended several performances by Vinnie Hines and liked him so much that he did a private show at one of our parties. He was fantastic with the attendees and the show was great! It's only perfect that he also does bookings for Artist Collective. We recently went to him with a special request for an artist with a specific skillset and Vinnie was right on it making things happen. Over the years we have used several outlets for talent and Vinnie Hines at Artist Collection (Chicago) is by far top notch and great to work with.
Fran can PLAY, he's got a degree in music, and he makes the lessons a fun exploration of whatever genre takes your fancy. I was an anxious adult novice and my experience with Fran was always great: encouraging, comfortable, and geared to the music and theory of interest to me. I couldn't speak more highly of Fran as a great guitar teacher for both for acoustic and electric for any skill level.
After seeing a performance by Alex I asked him to work with me in the future on a dance piece. His technique, clarity, and expressiveness were outstanding then and later when he performed in a new solo I created on a guest artist from a dance company in Israel. He was a pleasure to work with in the process and the final product. I would recommend him to anyone, anywhere, at any time and look forward to working with him again.
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.
I’ve always been fascinated by the violin. The moment I could muster up enough courage to take classes, I was extremely dedicated, however, not knowing anything about instruments and being an absolute beginner in playing one, it was always a challenge to find a teacher who could match my excitement and interest. When I met Kal, I felt that he had a genuine desire, not just to teach me how to play the violin, but to help me understand music as a whole; to incorporate all musical notes into my life through our lessons. Taking up an instrument can be such an intimidating task, but it is not at all impossible! With Kal as my teacher, in just a few months, I found myself reading music, playing to rhythms, listening to notes and recognizing them (and playing solely by listening to notes!) - basically, I found myself learning music, wholly, something that no other teacher had ever managed to take me through. Thanks to Kal, I can pick up my violin, tune myself, and just…play. His love for music is palpable and quite easily transferable; his dedication is outstanding, and his help has been truly invaluable.
Ms. Røsnes introduced me to several particular stringplaying technical applications. A mountain of patience and a source of inspiration. I had almost given up hope of ever learning but I am still playing and through her instructions am able to make the music live. Much appreciated! Thank you.
I got to Taylor's class every Saturday, and have a great time! We learn to play each drum part of a rhythm. It is part history lesson and carrying on tradition of the song. In his class you can drop in and be able to play with no experience necessary! I think everyone should try one class, because you might be surprised how you like! you get to go away with worldly knowledge from a worldly man who has patience and fun all in one!
Sarah is an amazing make up artist. Will definitely use her in the future.
Provide instrumental music for a spiritual encounter. Mikey McKay handled this with confidence and left a lasting impression on all who attended.
I am a DJ (downtempo cocktail music) with live violins and effects. Mesmerizing, we have played events across the country, including The Peninsula, Trump Tower, The Four Seasons, Navy Pier Skyline Stage, The Mandelay Resort in Vegas, and many more. We've been entertaining as this group since 1999.
I am an artist, guitarist, singer and songwriter. I have been in the Chicago and Midwest music scene for 12 years.
Chicago's Skip Towne & The Greyhounds personify hard-driving, heartfelt classic blues, jazz, swing, ballads, and downright good time rockin' blues that you can't refuse!
