Great experience with Smithson Music. Alvin did a wonderful job getting my long-unused and untuned piano back to sounding wonderful. The price was exceptionally good and we will absolutely use Smithson Music going forward. Couldn't be more pleased.
We had an engagement party for two of my kids (25/30) and it turned out great. Stevie was so accommodating and professional. People enjoy the ability to request songs from his extensive catalog. And I got to jam with him on two songs. I'll be sure to hire him again for future functions!
I have hired musicians for over 25 years for different events. Mark was one of the most talented, professional, gracious and kindest person I have met. He played for a group of 60. The reviews from our guests were unlike anyone we have had in the past. We will certainly have him back in the near future. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a harpist.
He really knows his stuff with regards to vocals, in terms of music theory and breathing technique. His knowledge of rock vocalists' technique is clearly shown and helps me a lot in shaping my goals in singing. He is also very friendly and helpful, and I would definitely recommend visiting him if you are interested in learning more about singing.
I couldn't have been happier to have David play at my wedding! Nothing but good things to say about my experience with him. He was so easy to communicate with leading up to my event and was more than happy to accommodate anything I needed. I can't say how many people have given compliments on how much they loved listening to him perform. He is extremely talented and has an amazing voice. Not to mention very kind and professional. I would hands down recommend him to anyone who is looking to hire a musician. We didn't get a chance to see him because he played our ceremony and cocktail hour, but we plan to go see him perform as soon as we can!!
Brian was a wonderful hire! He was so easy to work with and the music was great.
Bill was EXCELLENT! I will hire him for all our company events! He is a sweet, fun, and lovable guy! He is very accommodating, professional, and a crowd pleaser for sure! I highly recommend him!
Rich is a natural teacher, kind and quick to praise progress. He was also very quick to adapt the class in accordance to my progress, provided exercises of increasing difficulty, and gave ideas for further direction. His knowledge of guitar music is incredible.
I attended my best friends wedding last September and was blown away by Xen Live's production, that we booked them for my sister's wedding this past January! Working with Xen Live was effortless. I emailed them and Jay ( the owner of XL) got back to me the same day. The consultation was thorough. I told him we wanted music from the 60's 70's and 90's. When we arrived at the venue to do some last final touches, XL was already set up and ready to go! Phew! One less thing we had to worry about on the special day. We had a few songs specifically requested by my sister (to be played at specific moments) Jay was right on queue and didn't miss a beat! Thank you So much XL for making my sister's day so special! We'll be seeing you this fall!
Working with Ryan was a great pleasure! He kept the event lively and upbeat (for the most part) and everyone who came out really enjoyed the music selection. Despite the constant request for Bachata music he was great and he did try his best to accommodate to the requests made by club members and attendants. Other than that, he was affordable, a great DJ and I would love for Ryan to DJ at our future events. Thank you!
Yulia Petrachuk is an excellent singer and vocal coach . Her extensive knowledge of music, vocal technique along with her artistic gifts and ability to share them with others all combine to make her an outstanding artist and teacher. I highly recommend her!
Glenn Baker is an absolute professional--from our first communication, through planning the music for our Class Reunion, up until the end of the evening of our event. He "got" our music perfectly -- and many folks commented on how good he was. He was extremely responsive to all of our questions, provided great value for her service and was punctual. We LOVED his lighting display -- made for a very festive, but not intrusive, atmosphere. Thanks so much, Glenn!
I hired Josh and a stand up bassist to play for a work reception and dinner. They were outstanding! I received many compliments about the music and would hire them again no question. The jazz was just lovely and they were very professional and easy going. You won't be disappointed!
“Don with SingOuttaTune did a totally professional and unique Karaoke performance for me that featured his excellent singing voice to keep the show interesting and exciting. The guests were drawn in, and soon found themselves participating, doing a wide variety of songs. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves and I receive several compliments on the music. Don from SingOuttaTune made my Party Pop!”
Pete is an outstanding teacher with a fine grasp of both music theory and performance. He tailored his lessons to my learning goals and was able to adapt his teaching style to what I needed to improve. My lessons with Pete greatly improved my playing, my understanding of music theory and my love for music. He is a wonderful teacher and I heartily recommend him for anyone interested in moving beyond the basic chords and understanding how music and the guitar really work. Cheers, J in VA
Mr. Grattan provided videography, a band, and a duo, for my daughter's wedding. It was such a relief having all of that in the hands of one person instead of three different vendors. The band was called the Rockits, and they were fantastic. They played great music and when they went on break, they played new music like a DJ would. It was really perfect. The duo was PG&Robin. They were really good for the beginning when people were heading in and having a champagne before the ceremony. The video Mr. Grattan did was really professional and my daughter got it within a week, which is unheard of. She got a long and short one. I highly recommend Mr. Grattan and PG Productions for video and entertainment.
While I’ve only started my violin lessons Kirsten has been a wonderful teacher whom I know will be able to help me learn to play the violin.
Carey’s talent as a teacher does wonders for bridging the gap between music theory and music performance. I went into lessons with only a very basic knowledge of music theory that I hardly was able to apply to guitar, but his lessons taught me how to play in a way where I can either explore the musical depth of the tune or simply jam, comfortable that what I’m playing will always sound good. It’s broadened my abilities as a musician without taking away the simple fun of playing guitar, something that is invaluable in any teacher.
John Kunu is flexible in his approach to teaching, he brings many styles & skills to the keyboard, and he is willing to teach to what the goals of the student are rather than a regimented steps approach. John has been my daughter's piano teacher for several years. We are a musical family so it was important to us to choose a teacher with the depth in classical but also the breadth of knowledge in contemporary pop music, in order to keep our teen engaged in what she was learning. John's flexibility to teach to her interest areas while still making sure she mastered foundational skills and repertoire are rare in a piano teacher. We love that he weaves both classical instruction and improvisation so that a student is comfortable playing a piece of Bach as well as the latest songs on the radio. This has kept the learning fresh and relevant. But the greatest thing of all is when we hear our daughter wander over to the piano and just play -- she sounds beautiful and it is utter joy hearing your child make music and know that she will have this for a lifetime.
Janet Greene was my son’s private lessons teacher for almost ten years. She worked with him as a 4th grader until after graduation. His love for his viola and music is in large part due to her passion for music and her gentle guidance to the nuances of music and playing. She also encouraged him to practice every day and we have fond memories of him walking around the house every evening playing his instrument. She often found other venues for him play which gave him confidence in his ability to play in front of others. I believe that one reason he is still playing his instrument in college is the love for music she helped him develop. I highly recommend her as an instructor, tutor and person!
Yukiko is a very caring and thorough teacher. My older daughter has been taking lessons for the past two years and enjoying improving her piano and music skills very much.
