Alvin was great - patient with the kids and distractions in the house, skilled with our old and out-of-tune piano, and passionate about the piano and music.
Let me start off by saying that it has been an honor and privilege learning from Sam. He is an amazing singer and an incredible teacher! I had previously taken vocal lessons from another instructor, but I wasn't too glad with the teaching method. I began taking lessons from Sam after reading the positive reviews on his profile. After my first class with Sam, I knew that I had made a good decision. After a couple weeks, I've seen major improvements in my voice quality, breathing technique, and vocal dynamics. In addition, I've started to sing with more emotion and connect with songs at a level that I didn't know existed. I'm excited to continue learning from Sam and I cannot be happier! Sam's very knowledgeable in all aspects of music, and his experience with soul, jazz, blues, and contemporary music really resonates. I believe what makes Sam an amazing teacher is his ability to connect with his students - he's very passionate about teaching and he makes it his goal to take his students to the very top. I trust in Sam to help me reach my goal because I know that Sam trusts in me. If singing is your passion, I highly encourage you to take lessons from Sam - he will help you find your voice! - Gurpreet
Celeste provided music for our reception and it was all AMAZING! The strings were awesome & the pianist knew every song we asked for! Everyone with her company was accommodating and professional - I would recommend them for ANY event. They exceeded our expectations by far.
A wonderful pianist and amazing teacher! Couldn't have asked for someone better to learn from the past few years!
Great Jazz group! Full of energy and skill! They shared their talent at a Benefit Comedy Show & received rave reviews!!!! I can't wait to see them again! Thank you, thank you, and thank you again and again!
Cameron provided the perfect background music for our party. His repertoire was exactly what I requested, mixing genres from jazz to holiday classics to contemporary/rock. He played during our cocktail hour, but we could have listened to his music all night long. Highly recommend Cameron and his guitar!
Justin is a fantastic piano player! He is flexible and willing to go the extra mile to satisfy his customers.
Carman Bryant is an amazing vocalist who channels the soul and vibe of Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, and Mary J. Blige to name a few, not to mention her ability to sing in any style or genre, from soul to blued to jazz to funk.
Scott Schoem is a wonderful piano teacher who has worked with my children for four years. He is a talented musician himself who shares his skills and love of music with his students. Scott always is upbeat, patient and encouraging. My children enjoy their lessons with Scott and have learned to play piano well under his tutelage. He varies the songs they learn from classic pieces to jazz, rags and blues to holiday music to keep practice time fresh and fun.
Jonathan has played for several events for me. He is one of the most gifted piano players I have ever worked with, playing with heart and passion that lights up the room! Guests and clients are always impressed with his performances. He plays everything from Jazz and Pop, to Broadway and classical.
Sadie is a accomplished musician who is a fine pianist as well as organist. As a music director at a Catholic church, I have employed Sadie as a subsitute organist. I also attended a piano recital she gave as a senior at Hillsdale College. Sadie's musicality and versatility make her an ideal choice as a solo artist or as an accompanist.
We were in Arlington for 3 yrs until we had to move because of a State Department job in D.C. My 4-year-old took piano lessons with "Ms.Penny" the entire time. She was one of her youngest students, Ms. Penny said, and she said she doesn't teach children who are younger than 4, so I doubted they'd get very far working together. I was so wrong! At her first recital, my daughter played two beginning pieces from her repertoire book flawlessly. She also played a duet with Ms. Penny, and it was so great, I got teary-eyed. My daughter was proud of herself, rightfully so, and I was proud of her. (And I still am.) By the time we had to move, she was 7 and beginning Clementi Sonatinas. Penny's an outstanding, well-educated pianist who's used to playing concerts, but somehow she also knows how to work outstandingly with little children, it's obvious. Other parents and I talked, and we agreed Penny does almost anything to keep her students happy and engaged with their piano studies. Lessons were fun. There was never any shortage of laughter in there. And kids liked to practice for Ms. Penny, it seemed. She was the best introduction to piano we could have asked for.
We hired Kim's trio for our jazz soiree and they were excellent! Kim let us know a few days prior to the event that he couldn't make it, and gave us the option of canceling or having the trio w/ another pianist playing in his stead. We could have gotten another band altogether (three replied to our request on Thumbtack), but we went w/ his option of the substitute pianist and could not have been happier. The trio was fabulous, attendees from the young to the not so young loved all the tunes, and everyone had the best time. We are definitely putting Kim and his trio or quartet on our slate of events for 2018.
Mood for Guitar delivered, from start to finish. They were spontaneous as well as disciplined, fun as well as serious. They are excellent musicians and warm and lovely people who are responsive, creative, and fun-loving. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.
I highly recommend Simon for your wedding, funeral, or other need. I was blessed and honored to have Simon provide the music for a funeral service earlier this year. With Simon's talent as a vocalist, as well as his skills as a composer, pianist, organist, and accompanist, the music was superb. He worked with me closely on the planning, and his suggestions for the service were excellent, including the addition of a soloist with whom Simon had worked. Many people told me afterwards how much the music touched them and uplifted them on a sad occasion, and I was touched and uplifted as well.
Ron gave me a lot of help when I was learning to accompany singers and saxophone players. He showed me chord configurations that made me sound like a pro. I was asked to join a jazz combo. He was also great at accompanying me as a singer.
Very dedicated and extremely professional with services and performces.. Entertaining people
I take great care and pride in being a jazz pianist and performer. This begins with my own study and practice of the instrument and extends to performing live. It is vitally important to me that I provide guests and audiences with an enjoyable and memorable musical experience. Making people happy through music!
My students progress quickly. I teach students how to produce a good sound and be technically proficient from the very first day. My lessons also involve music theory and music history in order to create a well-rounded performer. My students and I study a wide variety of repertoire, from Bach to Prokofiev. I teach how to critically listen to oneself, and how to practice efficiently. My goal is for students to become more and more independent. My lessons are distinguished by strong attention to basics as well as finer nuances. Equipped with these skills and knowledge, students will be able to apply them to whatever they choose to learn and play.
