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.

Julie is an awesome voice teacher. My 9 yr old daughter has grown to love music very much after taking lessons with Julie. Her voice has become professional and she had gained much confidence to perform solo in many concerts. I am very happy that we found Julie.

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.

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!!

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

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 hired Jon to perform classical guitar for our wedding ceremony. We were late in the planning stages, and hadn't spent enough time thinking through the ceremony music. Jon made a number of suggestions, and we found several selections we liked. Knowing he was experienced with previous weddings, and confident, was reassuring, especially since some of the details were still being worked out at the last minute. In the end, his playing was fantastic, and the music perfectly suited our procession, setting a beautiful tone for an unforgettable evening. Jon is an excellent musician and a true professional, and I can't recommend him highly enough.

I began taking voice lessons with Ashley in the summer of 2016 when I decided to begin a new solo project. The idea of singing was quite intimidating to me, but my experience with Ashley has eradicated that intimidation. She is a patient and thorough teacher who utilizes technique-building exercises, as well as songs (which show the practical application of the exercises). I've enjoyed every lesson, I've always walked out feeling like I've understood each lesson, and I know I'm a better a singer now thanks to her. What more could I ask for?

We own a music store and wanted to treat our musician friends to a very special evening. A fellow musician recommended Jean and her band. We visited a restaurant gig where they performed. Jeans jazz standards vocal style was exactly what we wanted. We hired them for our event...they were amazing! So entertaining. We highly recommend them for any special event....
