I have been taking lessons from Sam for about two months now. I am an adult who is coming to vocal training with little experience in singing other than some high school chorus and performances. And I am so glad I did! Sam was immediately welcoming, encouraging, and warm. He is clearly a wonderful person and it shows right away. But maybe more importantly, he is an extremely talented singer, performer and instructor. I really wanted an experienced and sophisticated teacher who will not just encourage me but teach me, push me, and help me to advance and become an accomplished performer. Sam has a great reputation and teaches many advanced, even famous singers but he is also great for beginners. He teaches you not just singing technique but how to develop as a musician both technically and emotionally. Before starting with Sam, I took a few lessons with others who start you off the bat with sheet music and just singing. That doesn't work in my view. Singing is difficult (more difficult than I expected actually) and to progress you have to understand theory, rhythm, timing and phrasing. Sam starts you with these kinds of lessons so that when you start singing you understand the music itself, not just technique. In short, you won't find a better teacher or person than Sam so if you are interested in progressing either as a beginner or an experienced singer, please check him out. You won't be disappointed.
I had the pleasure to work with Xen Live on May 14th, 2018 at Richland Golf Club, Middletown MD. He was very professional in every aspect: setting the speakers and the microphones ahead of time, providing a high quality equipment and being attentive to all the musicians including a singer, pianist, and violinist. The volume level was properly adjusted and the ceremony went as smoothly as possible despite the fact there was high wind at the site. I can't wait to work with Xen Live again, and highly recommend his business to everyone who is looking for a perfect wedding. Zhenya Zianouka, violinist pixieviolin.com
I really enjoyed working with Alyssa! She is very well educated and took the time to get to know me and what I wanted to do as far as singing goes. She helped me learn breathing techniques and how to train my ear. Her prices were fair and reasonable and the commute was well within my range. I highly recommend working with her you won't regret it!
Ok. Our outdoor office picnic got rained out at the last minute. We ended up bringing it indoors to our office, which is filled with 75 six foot high cubes. We stuck Dave and Joey in a cramped, hot doorway with a few tables and told them not to play too loud!! Wow, now that is a tough crowd. BUT we really enjoyed the show. He was a great sport about the whole crappy weather fiasco. He made the best of a lousy venue and it all worked out fine. The musicians were both professional and talented. I actually can't wait to catch his next show at a better location than I could provide!! Kudos!!
Steve was great for our wedding cocktail party. He played "our" song beautifully and for hours kept the music going. His guitar and singing skills are great.
We had Mike play our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. He worked with me via email to pick out ceremony music and even learned a couple of pretty difficult songs I requested. All the music went off without any problems during the ceremony and was perfectly timed. His music set a great ambience during cocktail hour. I even had some friends who are musicians compliment his style. I'd highly recommend Mike and hope I get the opportunity to see him play again in the future!
I went to see Annie because I was diagnosed with nodules on my vocal cords. I was prescribed speech therapy but I knew that a singer teacher would have been a good help and Annie went over my expectation. She is patient and she gave me a great motivation besides a professional approach to my request of help! I highly suggest her, either if you want to improve your singing quality or you just want to start to have some. Thanks Annie!
We had such an awesome time with this group. We had a neighborhood picnic on Saturday and I'm still getting emails from attendees about The Marquees. Great band and great singers. They showed up well in advance to make sure they were set up by the time we had them scheduled to play. You will not go wrong if you hire this group - original back up singers for Marvin Gaye. We have asked them to come back for our next annual picnic. Fun and more fun! ❤️🇺🇸
I am the head of the vocal dept. at Hillsdale College in MI. Sadie was an accompanist in my studio for four years. She was always prepared for my singers and spent time outside of lessons to help them and rehearse with them. She is extremely musical and is an excellent sight reader. She has a very affable personality and is very fun to be around. I would recommend her for any accompanying job as well as teaching of younger students. She is relialbe and well versed in much vocal music as well as piano literature. Sometimes she takes on too much and that is the only thing that I would have her work on to better her performance. That was in a college setting which can be very stressful when combined with other studies. In the professional world I don't think that would be a problem. She is a very well rounded musician and would be able to excel in many venues. I recommend her most highly.
Jim sang at my wedding and he was amazing.
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.
Simon is a professional musician of the highest order. He is a gifted conductor, accomplished organist, wonderful singer, and genuinely warm-hearted person. He has my highest recommendation.
We hired Katie and Logan for the cocktail hour at our wedding reception. They did an amazing job!! They are both tremendously talented and played an appropriate mix of songs for the crowd with no direction. All of the guests were commenting on what a great addition Katie and Logan were to the ambiance and setting the tone for the evening. It was an unforgettable evening and began with great music from Katie and Logan!! Thanks for being so professional.
Michelle and her band were amazing. The singers and band members really put on a spectacular show. I would recommend them to anyone. I can't wait to see them perform again.
About a decade into my professional dance degree, I found myself hired as a dancer for Holland America Cruise Lines. Among the lead vocalist I worked with, Christy was a dream to meet and work with. After watching her for about a month, I approached her to help recultivate my own voice. In my youth, I was a trained singer and performed often, but when my dance career began, I put vocal tools aside and focused on my dancing. A decade later, I was ready to integrate tools I had already been taught, and learn more about my own vocal abilities. Christy's firm but light mannered personality made our coaching sessions light hearted but focused. Her perspective on breath and vocal technique literally changed my own singing. She has a way of helping fill out the voice, taking tension of of the vocal chords, and helping a singer connect their whole body to the sound that comes out. I thank her for giving me tools that keep me open to the endless possibilities that come with being a performer. If you can, work with her. You won't regret it.
Mrs. Reid Bonzagni is a wonderful musician. Her projection and voice preservation techniques are tested and proven. She is incredibly personable and has a great deal of patience when working with students and less experienced singers. I would recommend her services to any musician looking to further develop their skill set.
David Bach and and his band did and outstanding job for our corporate dinner with 120 guests. Our performance included a female singer who was also excellent. Many guests mentioned they were impressed with the performance. David is very professional. It was a pleasure to work with him.
I've spent years studying my craft. I genuinely focus on the entire record n how it feels.
I am a professional psalmist. I have been singing since the age of four. I am currently the minister of music of the Solid Rock Full Gospel Baptist Church Ministries International. I also serve on staff at the Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church and held positions of praise and worship leader/choir director for over 14 years. Lastly, I am a solo artist in my own right and have sang with and background for many well-known gospel artists over the East Coast. I love singing and lifting people's spirits, for I found music is good for the ear and heart. What makes my business great is when I satisfy Christ, He, in turn satisfy people on my behalf through the gift He has entrusted me with.
I am an R&B artist from Baltimore. I am currently finishing up my first album by multi-platinum producer Herb Middleton. I sing, write song, arrange and produce. I honestly have a gift for melody creation. I also have my own band. We perform songs ranging from classic soul, i.e. Marvin Gaye, Sam Cooke, Eddie Kendricks, Stevie Wonder to contemporary, i.e. Maxwell, D'Angelo, Chris Brown, etc. Most people in the area call my sound "New Age Motown".
I am a studio bass player of all styles. I'm versatile. I can sing backup vocals and play some piano as well. I have 32 years of experience.
