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 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!

I've been taking lessons with Shaun for about two years. I've grown as a musician and as a guitar player mastering songs that I struggled with on my own. I've been playing for 16 years and as an advanced student, never run out of things to learn.

Jerry is a great musician and a wonderful person to work with. He has played for fundraising events I've run many times. He always engages highly skilled sidemen and he is expert at tailoring the music to fit the ambiance of the event. I look forward to the next time I can hear him play.

Dollar for dollar, hiring The Band Sundance was the best decision we made in our wedding budget. The band gave us a great experience from beginning to end. We had numerous guests say we had the best or one of the best receptions they have ever attended because of the music and our dancing (obviously aided by the music). They kept asking where I found them and how much I must have paid to book them. As great as the band was, they did not detract from us as a couple. Jim and the band planned everything to cater to us. They provided a DJ for the breaks, and a few songs we wanted outside of their repertoire were played on break. They even let me sit in for a song. I found them through this site, and did a lot of other research on them before booking. We wanted a band who could provide the 1940s big band sound for swing dancing and also play contemporary rock, pop, and country with everything in between (50s, Elvis, 80s, polkas, waltzes, etc.). Moreover, we wanted a band who played both “In the Mood”and “Uptown Funk” well. Hard to find, huh? Well, here they are. They read the crowd well and knew what songs to play to keep people excited and on the dance floor. They have a full sound with keyboards, drum set, lead guitar, bass guitar, trumpet, sax, and vocals, and they blended very well as a ensemble. They helped give our reception such an amazing energy. This praise might seem effusive from anyone who has not seen them, but you cannot go wrong with these guys.

Pete is an awesome teacher. I was able to learn many chords within a 2 month time period. Now I regularly sing at open mic's with my guitar instead of having my friend play guitar for me. I definitely recommend Pete as a guitar teacher.

Greg is the best! He is an incredibly talented musician. He is B able to adapt any piece to your abilities. He wants you to play pieces you're interested in. His encouragement was kind, but firm-- which is exactly what I needed. He held me to a high standard that I was eager to meet. He has a great sense of humor, which made lessons fun and stress free. I highly recommend Greg!

    I took sax lessons from Max while he was at Oberlin. He cares about his students and their musical growth. He makes even the most tedious drills fun, especially when he plays the material along with you. He's a fantastic musician as well. I miss working with him.

    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. In addition to his musical and teaching talents, Dave is reliable, flexible, and professional.

    He was very professional and a great musician. Would be great for dinner music/background music. Not as good for assisted living entertainment as this population did not "understand" his music.

      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.

      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.

      SolJAMM is an incredible experience! I have personally taken piano lessons since I was young and my 4 kids have all grown up with piano, guitar or voice lessons in their weekly schedules. Let me tell you that SolJAMM's Instructors perform a service that is nothing short of REVOLUTIONARY!! I SAVED hundreds if not thousands of $$$ over the last 2 years. Using SolJAMM, with my two youngest has forever changed the way I approach personal music instruction. When I previously took lessons there was a lot of time and money wasted just making sure my tired kids were paying attention or doing the tasks they were asked to do. SolJAMM's style allows you to choose the skills you want to work on and sends you all of the necessary material to master that skill or style. They also make awesome personal response videos, live chat sessions and track/update you on your progress. It seems they have actually found a way to make music instruction an easy and fun process. The instructors were extremely respectful and genuinely care for your growth as a musician, almost feels like you are joining a team!!! Again, BEST MUSIC LESSON EXPERIENCE EVER PERIOD.

        I play in many events as a solo acoustic, but also can assemble and lead bands of any style and size. I'm an accomplished saxophonist as well, and have recorded and toured with many renowned artists. On the days I'm not playing or rehearsing, you'll find me in my well-equipped attic studio writing and recording original music for my band, The E-mics. I do record and produce other acts, including Dave Tamkin, Scottie Long, Holiday House, and many more.
