Within the first two lessons, I am now able to locate notes along the entire neck of the guitar. I also learned a blues riff, a pentatonic scale and started to dive into the music theory. Alex is a great teacher and is able to break things down into a way that is easy for me to understand. Only downfall is that your spot is not reserved if you don't prepay for it in advance. Otherwise it is fantastic and I look forward to continuing lessons!
I had a small group of kids ages 3-7 and they all had a great time. He broke up the magic show with some dance time to keep their attentions through the whole thing. All of my kids were laughing laughing laughing. Most of the kids got a chance to be a helper and they really enjoyed participating in the magic tricks.
Mike is an excellent teacher with incredible skills and knowledge of many genres of music. Before taking lessons with Mike, I was only learning guitar by learning simple metal songs with my old guitar teacher. When I started taking lessons with Mike, my guitar playing improved exponentially. Mike helps you reach your goals through a variety of methods like exercises and the underlying music theory to introduce the material, followed up by applications of the material seen in real music you listen to. Mike has also helped me be more open-minded about other good genres of music like the blues, jazz, and classical, which has also helped me to become a more well-rounded player. Overall, Mike is a great guitarist, musician, and teacher who can help you get as far as you want to go as a guitar player.
I tried playing several times on my own but since taking lessons with Josh I actually want to play and practice, he has an innate ability to push you yet make it relaxing. He tailors the lesson to you, takes the time to find your interests/goals. And a great little bonus in teaching you a lot of nuances of playing guitar and music in general. Highly recommended.
Silly Miss Tilly is an amazing entertainer!! She has the ability to make both adults and children laugh and be astounded by her talent with balloons. It's easy to see she truly loves what she does. Hiring Silly Miss Tilly for birthday parties, corporate or community events will not be something you regret! She truly is an artist with a passion for bringing joy to others.
STEVE IS EXTREMELY HELPFUL!! He has a good knowledge on rhythm and progression, and has perfect pitch with the cords. I'd reccomend him if your looking for a rock or accoustic vibe. The versatility is where it's at :)
Bloomington Farmers Market favorite, folk is just a general description for his music. Hints of blues and country come through his warm vocal tone not labeling him in one single genre. Always a pleasure having Dan preform at the market.
I will follow this group wherever they play! My husband and I have enjoyed listening to the beautiful music put out by Poetic Sound for over 5 years now. We try to get to as many gigs as we can because they are so enjoyable and have a huge variety of musical styles. I truly believe Laurie Melting Stegner is the best jazz and blues violinist in the Twin Cities, bar none! We also so enjoy listening to their vocalist Shannon Wenzel with her deep rich tone and her uniquely gifted vocal style!!! They are very professional and whether they have their guitar player who adds not only his ability on guitar but a second set of vocals or their keyboard player, we always enjoy them!!! We are real fans! We will continue to follow you on your website and can’t wait to see you at your next gig. Sincerely, music lovers Colleen and Monty🎶
Reuben Correa has played for us several times at events at the Woman's Club of Minneapolis. He is an accomplished harpist with a large repertoire of music. Reuben has been a consummate professional in his dealings with us. He is a popular musician that members want to have back. I would highly recommend him.
I am 50+ guy who is an advanced beginner or early intermediate and have had many "beginner" guitar instructors. I was very pleasantly impressed with Loba and very highly recommend him. He teaches many styles of music but perhaps most importantly he shares with you how to play, to feel the music and express the feeling the music has for you - so you are not only learning a new piece but you are owning it personally through Loba's encouragement and guidance. You take guitar lessons with Loba not from him - it is a shared experience. As person, he is friendly, polite, patient and sensitive; and will share his many experiences with music and people - an education alone. This is a very positive referral, and should be, Loba has earned it and will continue to, hopefully for you!
I am a member of the Annie Mack Band. Kathleen and BKS provided backup vocals on Annie's Baptized in the Blues album (released 2013). Also, for two years running, Kathleen and BKS have joined us on stage at the Bay Front Blues Festival in Duluth. In the studio and live they elevated us to another level. They are fantastic! Professional, quick studies, a joy to work with, I highly recommend Kathleen and BKS!
Richard has a true passion for music, and it comes through in his teaching. He is kind and gentle in his style, with an amazing depth of knowledge to share with his students. Ricky will help new students learn the foundations of piano - rhythm, fingering, scales, melody, and more. Be sure to ask him to play for you, he has an amazing gift to give.
I know Gabe on several levels. As a patron to local live music venues, Gabe is as good as it gets. His musical talents with percussive fingerstyle acoustic guitar are remarkable. His interpretive covers of other artists’ hits are as good as the original, often more interesting. His original music is outstanding. I also know Gabe as a student. My son and I take lessons from him. The variety of fingerstyle music that he can teach is significant. He will go out of his way to learn a song that we want to learn and break it up into smaller, easy to learn segments. He is inspiring, acceptant of our current abilities, picky about doing it correctly, yet always encouraging. He will record each segment, emphasize the proper timing and technique and send the videos to us to help perfect our practice. There are not many guitarists who can teach the complexity of Michael Hedges’ music and break it down to learnable segments. He has a gift as a performer and a coach, but he works hard at it too.
I have not hired Tim and his band but I seen him and danced to his music several times (more than 5) at different venues. It is good music and very dancible. You will enjoy any evening with his music.
I have listened to, been in production with, and performed with Greg several times for over 10 years. He has played, written, scored, transposed, adapted, and collaborated to create exactly what was needed for each event, show, and gathering. As a pianist and guitarist he seems a bottomless well of ability and genre capability; he can rock Bon Jovi and then perform an Arvo Pärt piece that will bring you to tears. Pop, classical, jazz, funk, modern, quiet, loud, solo, ensemble, and more. Greg is talented, experienced, collaborative, and a pleasure to work with and to listen to.

We play old-school swing and jazz music (both instrumental and singing) with a bit of a gypsy jazz flavor. Some of the artists we draw from are Nat King Cole, Billie Holiday, Chet Baker, Lester Young, Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Django Reinhardt, and Artie Shaw. We play music for listening and dancing, whether it's for a wedding, a party, a festival, ambiance, active listening, or the big swing dance.
