High praise for Otis Read. He is a talented musician, and shares his musical creativity and teaching skills with me every Friday morning. He has done so since September 2017. Otis is attentive, patient, congenial and enthusiastic. He has innovative answers for the numerous questions I have about chords, reading music, fingerpicking—anything that comes up during our lessons. He brings himself totally to these lessons, never preoccupied or rushing through them. I am always curious, and he takes the time to show me alternative keys for various songs, styles/methods of strumming/plucking as well as inventive “moves” on the guitar. I have learned so much in the nine months we’ve been working together. Otis is also honest, no false praise from him. He challenges me weekly, making me a better player. When I get discouraged about being unable to negotiate a complicated chord or frustrated with my lack of plucking agility, he’s always encouraging and supportive. One anecdote: Several of my musicians friends,—guitar, mandolin and stand-up bass —were playing at my house recently during a big party. They insisted I play with them—I was petrified, deer-in-the-headlights intimated. I got my guitar and sat in with this talented group, and while I’m not in their league at all, I was able to handle the material and sound good. The musicians complimented me and the rest of our friends applauded. Wow! Thank you, Otis!
I had my 1st lesson with Andy last week. I learned more about music and the guitar in that one lesson than I had in years with other teachers. He truly seems to have a gift for teaching music and I'm looking forward to working with him more.
We Worked with The Singing DJ's for our office/client Christmas Party. Total we had approximately 70 people. Ron and Mary were awesome, I highly, highly, recommend them. I am very detail oriented, and had a lot of ideas about how I wanted each piece of the party to play out. We had many clients there, and to pull on this first time party off successfully was extremely important. The Singing DJ's worked with us every step of the way. We wanted to use nice oldies background music for the cocktail hour and Ron and Mary accommodated. We had several songs set to play for different employees and clients upon their arrival and again Ron and Mary navigated this seamlessly, which really added to the vibe of the entire party. The Singing DJ's real talents came out after dinner. We gave them a must-play list about 12 songs long, some of which they sang, and their vocals were a home run. The Singing DJ's were masters at reading the crowd and knowing when to keep the volume on a little lower and when to blast the sound and when to incorporate some karaoke and follow with a awesome vocal number. They kept people dancing all night and every time the music shifted, people had a smile on their face that basically said "oh wow, this is a great song to play right now." December 2014 will be here before we know it and we plan to contract with The Singing DJ's again. In addition to their musical talents, The Singing DJ's, throughout the whole process of planning this party, were honest, enthusiastic, and most importantly to me, genuine. We will be in touch with them soon enough.
He played during my daughters wedding ceremony and the music was just what she wanted. He is a talented musician. Thanks
Tom was absolutely outstanding to work with from beginning to end! We couldn't have selected a better DJ/ musician to work with. From offering suggestions in the beginning on songs to playing live music at the wedding. Our friends and family haven't stopped talking about him! If you want to get everyone out on the dance floor he is your man! He was so great to work with and very responsive! Some people at the wedding couldn't believe it was him singing when they heard him! Definitely book him for your wedding you will not be disappointed! He helped make our day even more perfect!
Tristan is an absolute joy to work with, and I can't recommend him highly enough for his professionalism, attitude, energy, and of course, the music he makes. Professionalism: Tristan is a prompt communicator who listened attentively to our ideas. Not only did he learn the initial music we had in mind, but he also researched similar music at our request and made suggestions that led to an even more beautiful final piece for our wedding ceremony. He collaborated seamlessly with the other musician we hired, and even though they didn't know each other it sounded as if they'd been performing together for years! He communicated clearly and promptly with our DJ, who has since reached out to tell us he would like to work with Tristan again (and we see why!). Attitude and energy: Tristan is an upbeat, gentle and kind young man with a positive approach to problem-solving. We had a few technical concerns and last-minute tech hiccups on the day of our wedding, and Tristan rolled with the punches so that no one could tell. The product (that music!): Tristan's guitar-playing skills are exquisite. His attention to detail shines most in his music; even in a large outdoor space, he played with intricate finger work and dynamics that made his songs float through the space. His playing is emotional, thanks in part to his expertise in choosing pieces that are moving and meaningful, as well as his ability to connect to the music and play with intention. Tristan didn't just play the music for our ceremony - his creative and collaborative spirit enhanced the entire feel of the day and made it even more magic for us. Thank you, Tristan!!
Bengisu is a very talented musician and has been a great mentor
Sam is our 8 year old son's drum teacher, but he is the best drum teacher I could imagine for any aged learner.He is responsible about scheduling and a good communicator each week. More importantly, I am beyond impressed by the rapport that Sam has with all people, especially in our case, our son. He treats him seriously as a musician in the way he talks to him and when they jam together. There is no condescending attitude about teaching a little kid; Sam makes the most of every lesson and keeps him playing and engaged right up to the minute. Even more, 10 minutes after each lesson, we get a personal itunes email with a practice song or rhythm that is personalized just for our son! Summer scheduling could be a little tricky, but that worked both ways. I only hope that our rave review does not contribute to our losing Sam as a teacher, because he would be very hard to replace.
I literally have no words on how amazing this band is! It was a lucky last minute hire and we totally slacked on getting our homework to them on time but they pulled it out! So nice and responsive. With our lack of direction on how to have the reception flow Paul guided us through and it was great! My guests commented a week later to say they had finally recovered from all the dancing! From my 'I need to hear one u2 song one Elton john song and one Bryan Adams song' managed to play during their break a playlist with them on it including my favorite U2 song! Seriously hire them. Like amazing. I want to have a party with them at it every year. All we could ask for and more
Felix is a great guitar instructor! He has the knowledge, skills, and sensitivity to teach students of all ages and levels. Personable and enthusiastic, Felix communicates concepts and techniques very well. He is an amazing and inspiring guitarist who teaches the fundamentals while, at the same time, encourages exploration and personal expression. I have been taking private lessons from Felix for a number of years and I know first-hand of his ability and willingness to provide exceptional instruction in a wide range of musical styles and genres tailored to the individual students interest. In my case, due to having an eclectic musical taste, Felix tutors me in various categories which include: folk, blues, jazz, country, bluegrass, reggae, both classic and contemporary rock, and even some classical. I learn from him using both acoustic and electric guitar. Very soon after first taking lessons from Felix he began teaching me soloing techniques right alongside strumming rhythms. Felix, a Berklee School of Music alum, is an incredibly talented and passionate guitarist held in high regard among his peers. He is a natural teacher capable of effectively instructing the beginner, intermediate, and advanced level student in equal measure. With his vast knowledge Felix offers informed instruction on reading and transcribing music, theory, and composition for those students who wish to delve that deep in their study. Felix is patient, thorough, and encouraging in his teaching approach. As a long-term pupil of Felix I give him my highest recommendation.
Johnny is very professional and talented cellist. He is teaching my 11 year old son and we can’t not be happier with his lessons.
I took piano lessons with KK Music and Productions for a year, and in that year I saw the most progress. This took a lot of patience on Keyhan's part. He helped me to be more proficient technically, along with explore the musicality of multiple genres. We always made good use of our time-- I felt consistant movement forward and felt closer to my goals each day. Keyhan was also very organized, which helped in creating effiecent practice routines in the lessons and outside of the lessons. KK Productions helped me become a better musician all around-- truly a unique and personal experience. I couldn't have asked for more.
We like everything about Christine! She is an excellent communicator, talented musician and warm and effective teacher.
As a composer, collaborating with Dennis Shafer continues to be a great opportunity to work with an incredibly well-rounded, sophisticated, and poetic musician. After soliciting my musical intentions, such an impeccably pictorial and wonderfully sincere performance of my music could only have arisen from someone so wholly invested not only in his craft, but in a greater concept of what music can mean. I am eager to be again composing music for Dennis to perform. In the spirit of his teaching philosophy, hes opened my eyes to the thrill of collaborative work. Composers can be recluses, and I needed that eye-opener. His availability, willingness, and capacity to clarify the challenges of writing well for the saxophone makes me a better composer. A chance to work or study with Dennis in any capacity should not be passed up. He is a renaissance man and a worldbeater.
Andrew is an excellent musician. He learns many new songs in a timely manner.
We worked with Louis's band for our restaurant's anniversary party. Everything went out great! The band is really professional and punctual. We had a great night! Will definitely work with them again for our future events.
Nico is a fantastic musician! He is adept both at entertaining audiences and also sharing really interesting information about the music he is playing if the opportunity arises. An excellent teacher and performer!
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!
Sarah is a truly excellent violinist and overall musician. She has the technique, knowledge and sensitivity to teach, coach and inspire students through advanced levels. I appreciated her ability to analyze my technical issues and suggest potential solutions.
I am a performing musician, keyboardist, pianist, singer, songwriter, educator and studio musician. My artful life also includes graphic design and glass art, but music is my first passion. I have been teaching all ages and all levels of music for 20 years, and I cover basic music, piano technique, improvisation, music theory and live performance technique.
Matt Fearns is offering various musical needs. I do solo acoustic, with over 400 songs to perform, acoustic duos, and full cover band.
