I have been taking voice lessons from Julie Kinscheck for over three years now and am very pleased with her as a teacher. I have a very busy schedule as a manager and she has been very flexible in making the lessons happen. These lessons have built my confidence and inspired me to perform more often because of my growth as a singer. I enjoy singing in the regular student recitals. I appreciate her patience helping me to learn to read music, improve my breath support, tone and more. She also has a good listening ear when I need to talk. She motivates me to want to practice to be my best. I also see she is an excellent role model for her younger students, always willing to expand her own horizons by learning and then teaching them songs which they want to perform. She genuinely cares about her students and takes a personal interest in their lives. You can tell she has a passion for teaching. I highly recommend her!
Loved that Adam is both a musician and a DJ! He was able to play acoustic for our ceremony and then turn our reception into a party as a DJ. Took the decision of band or DJ completely out of the equation because he is truly the best of both worlds. He was easy to work with about song choice and various other customizations. He also MC'ed our reception and kept everything flowing. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a musician and/or DJ.
Ryan completely exceeded our expectations. This was not an easy gig: he worked with me to put together music performances for a birthday party. He had to accompany amateur singers and musicians, create a performance from scratch with four kids between 4 and 11 years old, play cocktail music and even do a little improvised accompaniment of the birthday boy! He was extremely competent, bringing his wealth of knowledge to help me execute my vision. Ryan was creative, open, responsive, flexible, and patient (with me and with the kids!). He provided us with tremendous value for our event, and we are forever grateful for his contribution.
My daughters, who are now 12 and 14, will be starting their fourth year of piano instruction with Christie. Christie approaches each lesson with exceptional knowledge, creativity, energy, enthusiasm - and an expectation that the girls have done their homework and are committed to learning to play. My girls have thrived under her teaching approach, which consists mainly of a combination of evaluating and practicing multiple songs, and reviewing theory. Christie is excellent at setting expectations at the start of the year, and weekly. She is also excellent at assessing strengths and challenges of the girls, and adapting her approach as needed. She challenges them in ways that require them to do their best, and exposes them to new things. My 14 year old played her first duet at the Spring concert, which required her to master Ave Maria on the piano and learn to play it with an accompanying violinist. It was a very rewarding experience and my daughter is interested in doing others. Christie is always prompt and cheerful, and fills the house with her positive energy. She has made learning the piano a very positive and rewarding experience for the girls, and I feel very fortunate that she is their instructor!
During the preparations for our wedding in 2012, we received recommendations about the beautiful and talented Jazz vocalist/songwriter, Gabriela Martina, from friends of ours. After a fantastic evening at a jazz club in New York and a short meeting with Gabriela Martina, our choice was made right then and there! We just wanted HER for this special day in our life!!! And it was definitively the right decision! Our song requests for the wedding ceremony such as our favorite love songs from stars like Whitney Houston, Céline Dion, Bette Middler etc. were not a problem at all for Gabriela Martina and she adjusted her repertoire wonderfully and seemed very accommodating to our wishes. People sat with tearful eyes and deeply touched hearts during the whole ceremony. I will never forget this moment in my life. We asked RED VELVET SOUNDS to play some more smooth jazz, light swing music while our guests were having dinner and later for the party they came out with funky, groovy and soulful songs that fit perfect! They seemed very open and flexible in terms of music genre and cleary - we had a blast!Thanks RED VELVET SOUNDS for a very professional performance in any way and your wonderful voice, Gabriela Martina: you guys made our big day unforgettable for everyone!
My name is James, and I recently attended a karaoke event hosted by none other than DJ Nicanor! Not only does he keep the music bumping between singers, but has the ability to make everyone feel comfortable no matter their skill level. From first time karaoke attendees to Kelly Clarkson 2.0, hes got encouragement for all! If ever in need of a DJ, Nicanor Snow is where to go! See you at the microphone!
Words cannot express how absolutely grateful we feel to have had the privilege to have Horizon and the Horns as the band at our daughter and son-in-laws wedding. They are the most FANTASTIC people, and the most amazing musicians and singers. I have never had such a fabulous time at a wedding in my life (and we have been to some great weddings), and the fact that it was our daughters wedding and we were able to really celebrate with all of our family and friends and dance the entire night made it even more wonderful. We had people to our house the next day for brunch, and have received several phone calls with the same comments: Where did you ever find that band, they were amazing Never have we been to such a fun wedding The band was incredible, they played such a variety of music and the singers were amazing! So many people told us that they thought the band had as much fun as all of the guests and that the band's enthusiasm and charisma really made the night fabulous. Our goal for the wedding reception was to have a fun party with all the people we love. Not only did they make this happen, they exceeded our hopes and truly made this a night we will never forget.
Bengisu is a very talented singer and a very good teacher. I'm looking forward to our classes.
The band was amazing! We had them play our ten year anniversary/beach party. We requested both female singers and they sounded incredible together. Combined with the male vocalists they could perform every song we wanted. We would, and probably will, book them again!
In my role at Berklee College of Music, I see/hear a lot of music. I happened to check out The New Review this week -- this band is the straight-up, no B.S., *real deal,* hands down. Nine-piece mad-tight band. Great musicians and excellent vocalists making a completely fun atmosphere. Nothing at all against DJs, but there's something hella-special about singers and players who love what they're doing to make your body move, and this band does it like few others. They packed the place, and even people with too little room to dance couldn't help bopping their heads. If you're looking for a band that feels the joy of playing and gives it to a whole crowd, The New Review is it. Absolutely "pure funk, uncut funk, the bomb."
We hired Groove Authority for our company Holiday Party this year and THEY WERE AWESOME! Completely professional, extremely talented musicians, all three singers had amazing vocals. They got and non-dancing crowd up on the dance floor and everyone had a great time! Would absolutely recommend them for any gig and we certainly will use them next year!!! THANK YOU Groove Authority!
Erin Christine is an awesome teacher! My vocals have improved ever since i started taking lessons with her and she instills belief in all her students. She's all around positive and i'm grateful to have her as a teacher☺
We had our first meeting and it was wonderful, Ashley is very professional but also incredibly friendly, we felt comfortable with her right away. My girls are already excited about there next lesson and in just one session have learned so much! Thank you, Ashley!
Priya is a great singer, and a very respectful teacher!
David: I had SEVERAL people, dozens, tell me that the band was awesome which I knew would happen but many people said I feel like Im at a rock concert - I am so into the music. Just awesome. Everyone spoke about every part of the band too. The horn guys are amazing That drummer is SICK! Thats one of the best guitarists Ive ever heard live (Billy Jean - I mean come on - that guitar bit at the end was just mind blowing), and on and on. And as far as the singers connecting with the audience, it was unreal. I mean unreal. They made every person feel special. I know I shouldnt but I felt proud for picking Downtown Fever! -Julie and Tyson Schoezel
Alex has worked as a tutor at Halsway Manor, National Centre for the Folk Arts, leading the 'Dyer:Cummings English Folk House Party', as well as performing, calling and MC ing on various occasions. He is always pleasant, professional and enthusiastic, as well as being an extremely talented musician, singer and teacher. Recommended!
excellent opera singer
As a teacher I understand what it's like not to "get it" the first time. Not all of us are Mendelssohn or Bach. Also, I understand the problems involved for the late starter or the adult who had lessons years ago and now would like to try it again. Patience and love are the key elements to my approach to teaching. But, I also expect my students to work honestly and diligently no matter how difficult the task seems to be.
B J Magoon & Driving Sideways is an established New England based band playing a mix of Swing and Jump Blues, Roots-Country Rock, Groove Jazz and Soul with an emphasis on the groove to make you move. We are a favorite for parties, concerts, wedding receptions and dances.
