Nick and his mate, Sam showed up on time....ready to work and continued to play three sets during a three hour period. This is my first time hiring a band for my personal party and I could not have worked with a better pair. I will definitely use him again. Well worth the money. Nice guys and open to my inexperienced suggestions. Lol! And I haven't even mention the quality of their music (jazz) was outstanding. They were the hit and highlight of the party.
Jon provided the music for the cocktail hour of our wedding on Sunday, September 18, 2016. We must start out by saying that, because the entire wedding was one big whirlwind, we did not have the pleasure of being able to hear a majority of Jon’s performance. However, we did hear through word of mouth that the guests really enjoyed the music that Jon provided. We communicated exclusively through e-mail. He was very kind and patient with us as we tried to figure out what types of music we wanted to play. Jon was able to send us a list of songs that he was well-versed in and that accommodated the genres we ultimately decided on (latin, jazz, bossa nova, R&B). This made our lives easier as it helped us to focus and eventually narrow our choices down to a small selection of songs. We finally got a chance to meet face to face at the wedding venue. He was very sweet and very formal (and he speaks Spanish too!). We did have a bit of confusion regarding whether or not Jon would use his own personal keyboard or the piano provided by the wedding venue but thankfully everything worked out in the end. Jon was VERY reasonably priced; however, he does not provide a contract (but because Jon is such a professional, this was not an issue at all). We would absolutely recommend Jon. And like we had mentioned to him at the venue, hopefully we have another opportunity to hire him so that we can listen to and enjoy his musical talents in its entirety. Thanks again Jon!
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.
Working with Artist Collective has been great! I appreciate the quality and value they bring to the table. Artist Collective has created a fantastic lineup of musicians to meet our needs.
Not only did Bill teach me when I was younger but he now teaches my 4 year old son. The value of learning how to play an instrument is priceless. Bill is punctual, professional and full of knowledge and so much talent. Highly recommend him.
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.
Yuen Yee Richardson has a great space set up for lessons, and is usually flexible with meeting times. Very understanding and patient. She's always cheerful, and has a contagious passion for music and nurturing musical talent.
The Alba Quartet played a performance recently for the Arlington Heights Memorial Library, as part of both our Sunday Musicale series, and our One Book, One Village initiative. Carlyn went above and beyond to connect with the One Book, One Village title, "The Geography of Genius", talking about the life and genius of Mozart, and playing his works beautifully. The audience absolutely loved the performance, as you can see below from a few of the comments we received in our online program survey: “Enjoyable performance by the Alba Quartet” “I wasn't expecting the flutist to speak, but truly appreciated how she 'narrated' the quartet's performance. Her comments were informative, interesting, insightful, funny and tied to the book Geography of Genius. I liked the way the other musicians introduced themselves by talking about where they are from and where they've studied/performed music, again linking to the book.” “The quartet members are skilled musicians and seemed very happy to be part of the program at the library. Unless we could have sipped champagne during the performance, I can't think of a single way to improve the experience. Thank you!” “Excellent musical group which did an exceptional job of playing Mozart's music!” “Beautiful music and a lovely selection of Mozart works. Very interesting tidbits of info on Mozart as well. We thoroughly enjoyed the program” Many thanks to the Alba Quartet for providing the Arlington Heights community with such a high-caliber music program!
I hired a band to play at my husbands 50th Birthday Party, they were great on time and professional.
I took guitar lessons from Fran. He is a very soulful and talented person. As a teacher, he is knowledgeable and helped me accelerate in my journey to learn guitar. You can't go wrong with Fran. He is one of the best!
We really enjoyed having Maxwell and his band at our holiday party every year since 2014. They played all the songs we requested and kept their performance at a reasonable volume.
Ryan did a great job with our elementary school dance. He solicited requests from me and played them. He also played music beyond the contract time. We’ll done, Ryan.
Jerri was great...very patient and flexible as she kept my guests singing the Christmas carols we requested. Perhaps most impressive was her willingness to trek out during a snow storm! Would hire her again in a second...
I have hired and been hired by Henry Smith on multiple occasions. He is a well organized bandleader and reliable musician who always puts his best foot forward in all his musical projects. Additionally, his personal training focuses on building a foundational understanding of harmony and trumpet technique which is valuable for his students, both new and experienced.
My 4 years old son has been taking private lessons with shihui. She is very patient, and I can see my son's improvements after each classes with her. Strongly recommend her to all kids who needs to learn piano, I swear you will love her just like I do.
