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.

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!

Matt is a wonderful teacher! He takes time to learn what kind of musician YOU want to be and what YOUR musical tastes are and develops your lesson plans from there. Some of the things that he has taught me have stuck with me years after his lessons. Highly recommend.

Jump 4 Kids is a yearly charitty event held for families. We chose DJ Rush to entertain our guests with music and games. We quickly realized just what a professional DJ Rush was, when he took the time to meet with us at our venue prior to our event. He went over our expectations for the day, helped us to build a playlist, and gave us great advice in creating a timeline for our event! On the day of the event Rush arrived well ahead of time to make sure everything was in place and ready for our guests. He put our minds at ease and kept our guests entertained throughout the event! Rush was able to keep the energy level at 100% and had everyone smiling and dancing! Based on our experience, with DJ Rush, I would highly recommend working with him on any event because he is very professional, easy to work with, and knows how to make an event come alive!

Laura Joy recently played at my wedding and was an absolute sensation. Not only did she play the wedding songs we requested (and very well I might add), but she played an array of appropriate wedding songs without the need of any cues form the bride or groom. My wife and I were honored that she played our wedding (you would be too) and would love to see her play again anytime, anywhere. Come to Japan!

Kathryn was exactly what I envisioned when I set out to find a jazz singer for my father in law's birthday party. Her voice is seriously gorgeous and she was very easy to work with. She was flexible with me throughout our time planning the gig and was able to accommodate all of my requests. While her song list is quite vast, there were a few special tunes she specifically learned for this event and they sounded fabulous. She found the perfect accompaniment in a very talented guitar player as well. Throughout the time Kathryn performed and for hours afterwards I received compliments from other guests for finding such a talented duo. The men and women alike were very impressed with the quality of music, song selections, appearance, and demeanor of both musicians. Everyone thought the music really added something special to the party. Most importantly, my father in law was absolutely amazed with what wound up being the perfect gift for him. He was very impressed and I was so happy to see his face when Kathryn sang one of the songs she especially learned for us. He'll never forget it. I'd hire Kathryn again in a heartbeat.

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.

Kathy sang at my California wedding in August 2014, during the ceremony and the reception. I discussed the songs I was considering with Kathy many times in the months leading up to our wedding and she listened to my ideas, giving guidance and suggestions for impactful songs. We ended up choosing an Adele song for the ceremony and a Beatles song for the reception. One of our guests told me after that he's only cried at two weddings: his and when Kathy sand Adele at ours. If I could give Kathy six stars, I would. Kathy is the epitome of professional. In a process filled with weirdly secretive costs (the minute you say wedding, costs increase exponentially) it was a huge relief to have someone up front, honest and fair with prices and expectations. If you are worried about having a meaningful music experience, hire Kathy. She listened to our desire for an emotional performance at the ceremony and a more 'fun song' at the reception and knocked it out of the park with "I'm So Tired" by the Beatles. I could go on about all the ways Kathy enhanced our wedding experience, but let me leave it at this: if you are even remotely considering live music at your wedding, you would be crazy not to contact Kathy.

Donna is a wonderful voice teacher, & my daughter loves her lessons & practices without prompting. In addition to her academic musical qualifications, Donna is an accomplished, classically trained opera singer. Donna has a great sense of humor & makes music fun for her students & she is enthusiastic & encouraging & often gives them extra time. Donna teaches the importance of correct breathing & posture, & warm-up exercises so that students learn how to extend their range & improve their tone without harming their vocal chords. Donna has a flare for understanding how to motivate her students so if your child has an interest in performance, or just wants to sing for pleasure then Donna will bring out the best in your child's voice..

I am so pleased with Sid and Hala. We had them play for my mom's 80th birthday party last weekend. Beginning with my first correspondence with them up until they left the party, they were wonderful. I have never used Thumbtack before or even heard of Thumbtack so I didn't know what to expect. I put in the information to Thumbtack a few months ago looking for a live band for my mom's birthday party. I had no idea what a live band would cost and if there was anything available where I was looking to have the party. (The party was a good hour from any major city). So once I entered the information into the Thumbtack website, within maybe an hour or so Sid and Hala contacted me. They introduced themselves, informed me about the type of band they were (acoustic), type of music they played and told me costs in the first correspondence (quite reasonable I thought). We went back and forth several times with questions of mine and their answers and they always answered within an hour. Can you believe they were willing to drive 2 hours to my event! I couldn't believe it. No extra charge for drive time either! So we had a verbal/email commitment with them and the next week they emailed a contract that I signed and sent back to them. We emailed back and forth a couple of times over the following few months up until the event. The emails were mainly regarding song selection. They have a good sized list of songs they play on their website. I had two song requests that they didn't currently play but they were more than willing to learn for me. The day of the party they were right on time-1 pm sharp. They were professional and polite. They gave themselves an hour to set up and started right at 2 pm like we planned. They checked in with me prior to starting to ask about when they should play the songs they learned special for me. They asked if it was okay if they took a break in the middle. (Of course it was okay!) The quality of performance was 5 star and then some. Their voices are beautiful and work really well together. I had listened to several of their songs on you-tube prior and the internet quality of the music was not the greatest for some of the songs. Let me tell you that in person they are fabulous!! So much sound and talent from two people. My family threw in some song requests that they were not expecting and they accommodated beautifully. They could play the music and just looked up the words on their smart phones so they didn't make any mistakes. That was the only time they had to read lyrics. If you had not been looking at them you would have never known they were reading the music. I received compliment after compliment from our guests on how great the music was. I cannot recommend this acoustic band enough. You will not be disappointed. Well worth the money.

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.

My son learned to play guitar there at the age of 5. He is now 12 and has continued his lessons and has formed a Rock Band where they all practice and perform through the music school. They have all learned a tremendous amount and it continues to be a wonderful experience for them.

“Ms. Corie is an excellent Suzuki teacher with an outstanding musical background. My daughter learned a lot during a year of lessons with her before she moved out to continue studying for her masters degree in music. She is fun and yet very patient. She was always prepared to teach her classes and made my daughter comfortable in each lesson. She made learning music easy and fun at the same time by playing games. I also loved the group classes she provided where every student got to play their solos/duets and give feedback to each other. Ms. Corie also performed at the end of group classes which was always a treat for everyone, but made my daughter motivated to practice more to get better. What I loved about Ms. Corie is that she cared about her students learning. She was also very dedicated and wants the best for her students. She was truly an inspiration to our family especially for my daughter. I couldn’t have asked for a better teacher than Ms. Corie. I highly recommend her.” Grace Burns

I enthusiastically support the recommendation of Nicole Auriemma for employment as an entertainer (guitarist and vocalist) in the Chicago area. I have known Nicole Auriemma for the past year and have employed her numerous times to provide musical entertainment during our summer villa events. Nicole always showed up on time and entertained our guests on a very professional level. Nicole is a pleasure to work with and always brings a smile and positive attitude whenever she plays guitar. It is very apparent that she enjoys performing for audiences in any type of environment." Sincere and best regards, Steven T. Samson
