I was greeted with optimistic energy immediately from Alex. He was very helpful in making me feel comfortable with my guitar. He started teaching me the basics in a way I could even relate too. ( Having no prior background with the guitar) I have developed a strong desire to want to continue to practice and improve, largely in part, due to Alex's passion for music, as well as teaching. I am more than satisfied with my decision to hire Alex as my guitar instructor.
I am happy to be paired with Shulamit - she is a gifted musician and even after a few lessons I have been aware of how I can play better. She is a good listener and is really helping me re-learn the musicality of playing piano music.
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.
My daughter takes classes with Prairie Music, and she is in her second year for a once a week lesson program. Yet she is able to play fluently almost all the song in the Suzuki book. She can also play songs she heard on TV and at church by herself without the written notes and she is only 7. The teachers are really committed to help each individual student become a great musician. They encouraged my daughter every time she is struggling with a song. The thing I liked the most is how patient the teachers are with the kids. I recommend Prairie Music to anyone who would like to learn how to play piano, flute, piccolo, violin, viola and cello.
WOW!! EVERYONE KEEPS COMPLIMENTING OUR BAND!!! We checked out every band in town and these guys were head and shoulders above the rest!!! The Dap Squad is THE BEST live band we've heard and we checked them ALL out!! We saw these guys in Iowa at a stranger's wedding (by accident) and we said then if we ever got married, this WOULD be the band. As luck turns out they were actually from Minnesota. We went with the full 10 piece because we are only doing this once and wanted the to make a splash. Wow, I just can't say enough. They KILLED Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind and Fire, Prince, etc.. My sister turned to me at the end and said if she ever gets married they will hire this band... I'm just waiting because I already know. ;-) This band is magic!!!
Very natural and helpful teacher. Her vast knowledge and experience helped me develop as a musician. She took pride in my growth through her individual approach. I highly recommend learning from her no matter if you are an amateur or a professional.
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.
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!
Very professional and talented musician. Asher is especially skilled at fingerstyle and classical guitar but is able to meet unique needs of his students (whether their interests are original work, songwriting, electric guitar or all of the above). I had a great experience learning from him and would highly recommend.
Ryan is a wonderful, dedicated musician and teacher. He is always well prepared and teaches with enthusiasm kindness, respect and patience
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.
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.
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!
Juan is a fantastic music teacher! He takes the time needed to help a person at any skill level to grow and improve. Lessons are always fun and the time just flies by. When he demonstrates a particular song it is evident he is a skilled musician as well. I highly recommend him.
Worked with Musicians Unlimited for my daughters wedding. Everything was handled professional and exceeded our expectations. Highly recommend
He really helped my daughter to bring out more of her talent and to decide how to proceed for her future.
We were going to hire megan to play at our wedding September 10th, but we just had the reception dj do the ceremony music. But megan has an awesome voice and is a wonderfully talented musician. I would recommend her to play any event.
It is has very unique message and energy that is very uplifting.
I play in two different settings and styles. The first ........is my acoustic based solo or small group music. This is a cross between jazz and rock and world music.....but I like to use familiar songs and play acoustic based versions with jazzy twist and some world influences as well. I use a lot of different guitar textures, from 12 string to 6 string to mandolin. I also perform both instrumental and vocal based shows based on the event/club need. My instrumental music has been heard nationwide, for example, it was used at the smooth jazzy background on The Weather Channel and other Film/TV placements. Check out my album T.C. Ortberg The Ninth Tide, or T.C. Ortberg, Hot Jupiters for some of the instrumental selections. The latest album, T.C. Ortberg, Half Finished Novel, has vocals. I often will add the amazing Kenni Holmen on sax, who is also part of the The Hornheads (Prince's horn section) to my shows for an acoustic plus sax vibe.
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.
