I sought Mr. Novi out after taking a long hiatus from piano. I have had many piano teachers but Mr. Novi is definitely one of the most fun and enthusiastic teachers I've had. I have had many years of classical piano instruction but am completely new to jazz. Mr. Novi will give me suggestions on new pieces to learn, but ultimately leaves choosing what I learn up to me, no matter what style I want to learn (classical, jazz, rock n' roll, etc). Because of this I never see practicing as a chore since I am only playing the pieces that I truly enjoy. Mr. Novi is a fantastic musician himself, it's very inspiring to listen to him play! I would absolutely recommend Mr. Novi for anyone interested in studying piano.
I have always regretted giving up playing guitar when I was a teenager. When my teenage son started playing bass in his schools jazz band I was motivated to see if I could play again. I struggling for months attempting to use the internet and learn on my own before meeting Ken Fought while he was playing at a friends wedding. I was so impressed with his artistry with the guitar that I scheduled lessons for both my son and I. Ken has helped rekindle my passion for music and continues to work with me in improving my skill and confidence in playing my guitar.
Bill is an amazing coach and person. He uses all his life experience as well as his profound vocal skill and experience to enhance the process. His style is much different than mine (he is a world class opera singer, and I'm more of a raspy "rock" guy), but he addresses those differences head-on and we make progress where we can and it's fun and beneficial all at the same time. I've always been a bit skeptical of voice coaching, thinking you either have the "pipes" or you don't, but Bill shares technique and perspective that anyone who uses their voice extensively can be helped by. Cheers to Bill!
When the LIVE band sounds like a recording. That's when you know you chose the right group for the job. Professionalism was beyond measurable and the overall experience was A+
Matthew has been teaching my teenaged son guitar for the past few years. He is extremely knowledge, passionate, kind, professional, dedicated and just overall a fabulous teacher!! He has also been coaching our son's Rock band and he helped them to do great at their first public performance!
Laura and the band played at my 30th/my dad's 60th birthday party. They were very easy to contact and work with. Everyone at the party loved listening to them play!
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.
Guy has provided excellent recording services for our band, Branches Band. We have recorded ten albums with Guy so far and look forward to more in the future!
The EcoLimes are great musicians. They have a fun sound with lots of interesting mash-ups of popular songs. They were easy to book, showed up on time and took care of their own set-up and tear-down. They took longer breaks than agreed upon.
Best guitar instructor ever! Matt helped me improve my skills enough to play in a great band, and we performed at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Matt helped me learn to count and feel the ups, downs and skips. Thanks, Matt!
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.
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.
My family has hired Sipos & Young for a wedding reception and a celebration of life gathering. Rachel and Chris are fantastic musicians and their song catalogue is deep. They also asked on both occasions if there were any particular songs the family wanted to hear. They set the tone perfectly for each event as diverse as they were and really added something special.
Artist collective is a very professional business that has the musician in their best interest. I personally have worked with them and it was so nice to have them take care of the "business" end, so I could concentrate on the creative end with my band. AC set us up with a photo/video shoot and it was a success! Highly recommended by us!!
Fantastic music, fun band members, great night!
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.
The band has played at private events events that I hosted and I have seen them dozens of times at public venues. I keep coming back for more because they get better every performance
We had a birthday party for my husband's 55th and Rock Boxx could not have been more perfect! Their energy level accommodated the pace at which we love to celebrate! Family and friends have nothing but excellent comments about the social band members and their music! Can't thank them enough!
My daughter, Piper, started her 1st music lessons with Miss Jessica at age 7. She laid the foundation for love of music which continues to this day. Her thoughtful lessons designed to suit Piper's ability, made learning fun and easy. Her uncanny patience brought them through periods when faced with greater music challenges. I appreciated her approachable demeaner and willingness to keep an open dialogue. Piper passed from piano to French horn in 5th grade when school band was offered. With the benefit of lessons from Miss Jessica, it made for a smooth transition. Thanks for 4 great years! Kate (Piper's mom)
