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
Kris and the team at the Drummer's Studio are wonderful people ,and great musicians to boot. I couldn't stay with them long due to life and moving, but definitely enjoyed my short time with them.
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!
Bengisu is a very talented musician and has been a great mentor
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.
We had our daughter take lessons with Steve Luhmann for 5 years. He was awesome. It was relaxed, comfortable and a great learning experience. He is an incredible musician as well, just go and listen to him play. He is wonderful with piano and Guitar. Jared
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.
Mahir was so professional, dedicated, and also funny and passionate at the same time. Our music production lessons on Logic Pro turned out to give me knowledge in music theory, and composition too. Now I am at a level that I am happy about, and I am able to develop my skills myself. Since the beginning I'm thankful for Mahir's honesty for helping me become an independent musician.
From day one, Gary was a pleasure to work with. I have never worked with a vendor who was so speedy in responding to emails with helpful information. Not only did we love his style of music, but he really knew how to get the crowd moving. Our initial musician for our event fell through and I'm sure glad he did because we couldn't have been more pleased with how wonderful Gary and his band were. He even came up with a song about my five year old on the spot - a memory none of us will ever forget! If you are looking for professional musicians, a set list with a wide range, and someone who can engage the crowd and perform accordingly, look no further. You won't be disappointed!
Daniel Aizenshtadt is a wonderful musician with great violinistic skills. He can bring wonderful musical experience to the audience
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!
Everyone at our function commented on how great Bill was. I even had people come ask me where I found him.
Showed up on time during a snow storm. Great performer!
I have seen this band many times and they are just great. Great musicians and Keturahs voice is just one of the best around. Very professional and they have a lot of fun entertaining. You won't be disappointed with this band!
Matt Fearns is offering various musical needs. I do solo acoustic, with over 400 songs to perform, acoustic duos, and full cover band.
We are an acoustic duet, trio and full band playing classic rock, pop, country, Motown and blues spanning the '60s through today for all occasions and venues!
