My 15 year old daughter has being "playing" with a guitar for a couple of years now. I wanted her to get some proper training and Steve is an inspiration for her. His love of guitar and music is infectious and he knows how to teach the technical side, without it becoming boring. I also grabbed my guitar and joined in. We have now set up a weekly schedule and I hope to be the dad of a serious rock and roll guitarist in the near future. Thanks Steve!
Brooksley was our violinist for our wedding ceremony at the Loews on Coronado. She did a fantastic job! She has the largest offerings of music and songs. She was very professional and set the tone for our entire ceremony. She made sure everything was exactly what we wanted and was helpful with suggestions.
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
Don knows his stuff, he's easy to get along with and overall a really nice guy. He has an impressive repertoire of musical skills and a lifetime of experience in music to draw from. As far as instruments he can play a little bit of everything, he can basically teach you any instrument you'd find in a regular rock band, folk, country, pop, blues etc. He's probably most proficient on the guitar and piano but he also knows quite a lot about vocals. If you struggle with theory he does a great job demystifying some of the fundamentals of music theory that are useful to beginners. Whether you're an absolute beginner or long time musician Don will be able to help you out. Highly recommend.
I highly recommend Mike for any event you have. He is a talented musician; singer and guitarist in a variety of genres: Rock, Reggae, Funk/Soul, Acoustic Pop and Country, as well as some original music. He is definitely an up and coming artist you should hear. Everyone at my event absolutely loved him!
Ms.cash was extremelly professional, friendly with all the children at the party...her prices were very reasonable and i could tell me honestly loves what she does,painting faces...my experience was so gd i will be booking her again
Joel is not only a virtuoso musician, but he's a true professional. He plays well and he "plays well with others." Truly a pleasure to work with, and every musical experience I've had with him has been tremendously rewarding.
Stacia was a complete JOY, to work with! She made our special day from start to finish The Best Day Ever! She was accountable, self motivating, very creative, she stayed waaayyyy ahead of schedule, and she really got in tuned with our style, as well as who we are as a couple, to create a PERFECT setting for our Wedding Day. She litterally took all of the stress of the planning process completely away! Her level of expertise about the whole wedding planning process, really put us at ease since I had never done this before. She is a business woman, and an artist! I could go on, and on an on, but the bottom line is I would advise EVERYONE to do yourselves a big favor by letting her make YOUR Wedding "The Best Day Ever!"
Sadie is an excellent piano teacher. She taught my 3 girls for about a year and they absolutely loved her and learning to play the piano. She clearly loves teaching and is a passionate musician. She was able to inspire my girls as well as adapt to each of their styles to optimize their learning. We were so sad that she moved, but DC is getting a fantastic musician and a wonderful piano teacher.
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.
Theresa Daly and her crew was put in charge of an almost impossible task - creating a unique, fun and affordable birthday party for a 13 year old budding artist. Theresa coordinated the entire event (a painting party). Everything from artist selection and food and beverages to maintaining a fun yet controlled atmosphere! She did such a wonderful job that not only were the birthday girl and her friends raving at the end of the party, but the mother and other family members we're thrilled. Needless to say, so was I.
Ron is well versed in music theory, rhythms, chords, scales, and basically all musical concepts for beginners, mid-level, or even professional level piano players. He relates in a "down to earth" manner, that is easy to understand and apply ! Keep up the good work Ron !! I even received personal calls, to help me improve my playing. I was an absolute beginner, when Ron started helping me, and I didn't know what a chord or scale was, and now, for the last 4 years, I have been the "House" pianist, at a luxury hotel, playing for weddings, corporate events, etc.!! (I would play for FREE, but the hotel is paying me to play...I can't believe it !! I am learning everyday, and I thank Ron, for giving me the foundation tools, needed to learn, to play the piano.
What a Jewel !!! Its a wonderful pleasure working with Ms. Cortney her vibe and personality WOW! I can really tell taking pictures is not just a job for her but a joy. Much appreciation for her professionalism and her great spirit, looking forward to using her services again!
Billy Caldwell Billy was a truly wonderful part of our wedding. He was so easy to work with. From our first conversation, it was clear that this was a talented guy that we were lucky enough to snag before he hits the big time in the wedding circuit. And then as we continued to get to know him, it became apparent that he is too humble of a guy to turn into that. From the set list, to the cost structure, to his understanding of how important communication is in wedding planning, he exceeded all of our expectations. On the day of, he did all the set-up himself, he played what we asked and he had his finger on the pulse of the evening. Other reviewers mentioned that he has played softer, bluesy music, which he also did at ours, but he can also play stuff that really rocks the house. There was rock, blues, country, classic rock, indie, folk, etc. When the party needed some life, he brought it big time, and when it needed a slow-down, he played just the right thing. This is a guy who has the voice and musical knowledge and talent to play larger functions, or to really bond with a smaller crowd. He played stuff that ranged over four decades. We loved him, our guests loved him, truly he was the man.
I have been to a number of concerts given by Pavel Urkiza and I've thoroughly enjoyed all of them. He is a multi-talented artist who not only writes and sings his own compositions, but arranges not only his own but also those of others. Urkiza's music is very vibrant and interesting, but what I love is that even at its most vibrant and complex, deep in the center of his songs, there is a quiet and peaceful core. How does he do that? Only he knows, but when I shared this observation with him, he grabbed me by the shoulders and exclaimed, "You got it! You heard the peace. Bravo."
Dolly is Amazing . Well read and very professional. As a recorded artist she understands the streingths of her students and brings out the best in all of us. Truly the Best . DM
He is the best balloon artist you will ever meet! Highly recommended and great with kids and adults.
Can't say enough good things about Arla! Her artistic ability and SPEED are amazing. She is a rare talent and I would recommend her to anyone.
We do hard drivin' blues with a bite! Blues, blues rock, and rock 'n roll are all done with the Dogfather's growl. We can play up to 4 hours of music. We offer a song list of over 60 tunes.

It's time to party with Dogfather.

We are a nine-piece band that plays New Orleans funk and blues along with some Motown and '70s funk. We costume up and bring the party. Think jazz fest meets Mardi Gras.
