Dottie was a true professional. He connected with me several times before the event to plan. The night of the event, he showed up with professional lighting and equipment, playing the music that we had discussed. The party-goers were dancing and having fun all night. Dottie made it all happen and the group of people at the party made many comments about how much they enjoyed the music. I would hire Dottie again without hesitation.
My two sons both studied with Shulamit over the course of five years. As a teacher, Shulamit was patient, yet motivating. She has a lively personality that both of my sons responded to. She remained true to her training and philosophy of teaching, yet was flexible when my son's interest was veering away from classical music. Shulamit knew that she was not going to become a different teacher, but she incorporated some popular music into his lessons to try to meet him where he was. As the mother of the student, I have always enjoyed my contact with Shulamit and have felt privileged to be audience to her magnificent playing.
Mike is a terrific guitar instructor. He's organized, providing easy-to-follow lesson plans and he tailors the instruction to your interests and pace. Another bonus: he's a working musician and he recently hosted an open blues jam session where his students played with his band Crooked Dice. How cool is that? We (students) got a chance play with other musicians. Isn't that what music is all about?
Exceptional job outlining chord shapes in a streamlined fashion and listened to my concerns and questions. Helped me to get better at basic and more advanced strumming patterns. I've been to numerous instructors and Jeff is by far the most patient, accommodating, and knowledgeable instructor. Please seek him if you are learning for the first time or need to further your guitar playing, music history, and theory.
I frequently take my grandchildren to their music lessons with Dr Barbara Lamb. Dr Lamb has a vast knowledge of music and of different instruments. My grandson has improved greatly under Dr Lamb’s tutelage, both as a school teacher and leader of The Fabulous Fiddlers through fourth grade and as a private teacher. He is now able to read music in both treble and bass clefs and the tone when he plays has improved greatly. She includes vocabulary slowly, as in the musical signs and terms for tempo, etc. She gently guides him into making improvements in his stroking and incorporates interesting bits of information about the music he is playing. When it is obvious he hasn’t practiced enough she doesn’t chide but instead tells him how and why the music would sound better if he were able to spend more time playing. He enjoys the fact that in addition to the standard teaching books she will coach him on music he brings in, Star Wars themes in particular. When he brought in his recorder and played a piece for her she complimented his playing and also gave hints on fingering and breath technique. She is very patient and when my grandson starts rambling about other things she listens and gently guides him back to the topic. She instilled a love of music in both children and I enjoy hearing them sing when they are in the shower. My grandson says he would give Dr Lamb a 5-star rating, adding that she is nice, patient and she knows a lot. He was very disappointed when she left his school and the Fabulous Fiddlers program was dropped. It had taught him discipline and had prompted him to work harder on improving his cello skills. He is looking forward to continuing cello as he moves on to middle school. My granddaughter has had to drop lessons temporarily due to school responsibilities but she also enjoyed her lessons and progressed well. She hopes to be able to continue guitar lessons in the future.
Mark helped our grandson with pre-algebra and was very nurturing and patient while teaching concepts. Nick really enjoyed his sessions with Mark and gained so much confidence. I believe the skills talked about carried thru in his other subjects as well. Mark is excellent!!
Lauren is a fantastic trombonist and overall musician. She is talented, kind, and smart. It has always been a pleasure to rehearse and perform with her. She is dedicated to her students and continually works to improve her teaching skills. I highly recommend Lauren as a trombonist and an educator!
Rockitman was the entertainment at my wedding, and it was an absolute blast! Jon entertained young and old alike, and the dance floor was going all night! He was funny, engaging, and super easy to work with. You pay a bit more for live music than a DJ, but the quality and professionalism Rockitman delivers is far and away better than any DJ, and unlike most live bands, Rockitman is able to customize the show based on requests. I would hire them again in a heartbeat for corporate parties or any kind of event, and I’d recommend them to anyone!
Reception Jazz LLC was a complete delight to work with. They were easy and straightforward to deal with, came in plenty of time to set up, played wonderfully for our event and added greatly to the ambiance. If you want a great quality, talented jazz trio, kind people and no drama- hire them!!! We would hire them again and again.
Mr. Correa played at our wedding on 12/28/2012. The addition of a harp to the ceremony made for a very romantic event. I also purchased music CD's as gifts for our guests. Reuben also played a children's medical benefit at my request. Some of the medical staff remembered him from the hospital, as he played there a few years back, and commented how much they enjoyed hearing his soothing harp music during children's surgeries. Reuben's passion for playing the harp and his artistic ability are amazing and they shine through in his music. I highly recommend him for any event.
Dr. Kemper provided a relaxing atmosphere at the my An Evening with the Author event by playing a mix of jazz and classical tunes at the start, and a plethora of Holiday/Christmas music at the end. He also found piano music for songs mentioned in the chapter I read, which was a delightful surprise.
I asked him to play a song he had written. It was so beautiful I had tears in my eyes.
Played a variety of musical styles--classical, show tunes, popular tunes from the past, ethnic tunes. Excellent selection of music for wedding ceremonies, preludes and postludes. Good background music for dinners. Pleasant sound.
Chris- is a DJ that plays for the crowd! He is enthusiastic, entertaining, and he gets the people involved! He is a family man that enjoys a music and he know how to entertain! I highlybrecommend him for weddings- he will provide you with a lifetime of memories for you and your guests!
I have hired and enjoyed Stoney on several Minnetonka boat cruises with my best clients - 70 or so each year. I keep hiring him, because he's not only a terrific entertainer, he's accommodating and easy to work with. Super "go with the flow." Versatile, reliable and a crowd-pleaser. I highly recommend Stoney.
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!
To use an acronym to describe Les Izmoore, I would say WTF! (Wonderfully Talented Ferpormers!!!) These guys were Led Zeppelin before there was a dirigible. And who's more popular...J.C., or the Beatles??? Neither, it's Les Izmoore by a long shot. It ain't even close. While you may never hear Lez Izmore and Eye Candy in the same sentence, these guys are all exceptional musicians and amazing performers. Unlike bands I've been in...these guys start and end at the same time. Incredible, right? I've always wondered why I couldn't do that! If you want a great band, at a great price, that is better than you could have hoped for...these guys are it. At some point, they'll have to change their name to Moore Izmoore. Cheers music fans...these guys will make your day!
Just thought I would tell you that my daughter did her practice for my mom (piano teacher, musically talented) tonight and my mom said that she thought "her teacher was doing an excellent job" 😊. She was impressed with what [student] has learned so far. So thanks!

I am a talented musician and soloist. I play piano and guitar, and I sing along with the songs that I play. I have sang and played for several weddings throughout the twin cities, and I am able to figure out how to play anything. My rates are reasonable, and you won't have to pay extra for a separate pianist or soloist. I can do it all.
