Ivan was very professional and is very talented, we would definitely hire him again!
Working with Jacob was better than I could've ever expected. He was super supportive and responsive. We hit the ground running with songs I had only dreamed of being able to play. On top of that, he gave me the confidence to perform for friends, family, and a few real live gigs. I would 100% recommend him as a teacher, but do it before he gets booked up.
Just for background information, I took lessons with Christine for about 4 years throughout high school with a focus in classical voice. I currently still study voice in college and I can honestly say I have the most helpful foundation I could have ever asked for for that. Christine instills a very strong vocal foundation both artistically and technically. She doesn't dumb anything down, but is absolutely understandable even for beginners. She is also incredibly knowledgeable as a musician, which is enormously helpful because with each new piece she adds to your repertoire, she also builds theoretical and artistic knowledge which helps you be able to perform other pieces later on. So I went into a lot of later repertoire having a solid understanding of the purpose and context of the music I was singing. Also, she never loses sight of the artistic aspects of singing, never letting pronunciation, oddly placed breaths, facial expressions, body language, misunderstanding of text, etc, slide. This seems kind of standard, but it's actually a really professional way of treating your students and made me personally, approach my music with as much professionalism as I had developed. I also found it extremely helpful that she explained why she did asked me to do certain things or ignore other things because, especially for beginners, classical training can seem like a black box and occasionally feels like it's taking you backwards. Having those explanations assuaged a lot of that fear. In my experience, I felt a lot of changes both explicitly and implicitly. I felt my voice grow, in range and strength, and my technical foundation and knowledge are both fairly solid. I stopped fidgeting and found a tremendously improved focus and composure while performing (a big problem for me). My Italian pronunciation is actually quite good now. My ear and internal tempo are both MUCH better. My theoretical knowledge is a lot more in depth than it was, (kind of a bonus because that's not her job). And my contextual knowledge of music is also at a much higher level than it would have been otherwise. Overall, Christine is a really talented teacher and musician who provides a lot of understandable but high level information, impeccable and PRECISE technique, and an artistic but academic approach to music and singing which lays a perfect philosophy in her students for continuing to grow as musicians.
So glad we used a harpist through Sweet Harmony! It was so easy getting in touch with Tara anytime I had a question, she was really on top of everything. We had 2 songs that we really wanted to be played, and they were able to add them into the repertoire of song choices. It was such a beautiful addition to our wedding ceremony, and I would definitely recommend Sweet Harmony to anyone looking to hire a musician.
Drew arrived early to set everything up and played beautiful music at our wedding ceremony. It’s exactly everything we wanted. Thanks !
We recently hired Sabina for our house party. We are extremely happy with her performance . She has a great personality and very professional . I’m so glad we found her. Thanks Sabina , you made our day and we can not thank you enough . Regards , Kash
Kino is a very knowledgeable person with a wide perspective on the world of music. She is very positive and encouraging, and teaches with a balance of form and artistry
So good! He has helped me in many different ways, from exercises to building technique, to how to conquer challenging pieces, to even prepping me for gigs in the city. So calm, and encouraging, and clear with sharing ideas on how to become a better pianist.
We were very pleased to have Nico play guitar and sing in our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. She is very professional, arrived in advance and dressed appropriately for a wedding. She asked us in details of what we need in the ceremony and the cocktail hour, and tailored the song choices to exactly what we wanted. She recommended songs that would be good and also played my favorite, “Fools Rush In.” In a busy and stressful wedding, Nico’s professionalism made it easy and her beautiful singing made our ceremony really perfect. My wife was so happy and several of our guests asked for her card. We’d definitely hire her again.
Mariko is very patient with my daughter. She gives constructive teaching in a way that my daughter grasps. She works with my daughter to break down each portion of a music piece, and goes over each section diligently. My daughter has been playing for 5 years, and she is autistic. She enjoys Mariko's teaching style and looks forward to her classes. I highly recommend her for a violin instructor.
Eagle was professional, dependable, and funny as hell! Him and his crew stole the show. They had my guests rolling! Everyone asked me where I found them and wanted to hire them for their next event. Also, Eagle was responsive and his communication was on point. He showed up early and I would definitely hire him again. Thank you for a great time!
Hired Anthem for a birthday party and it went great. They sound exactly like the bands they cover and put on a great show. They're pro, no goofy embarrassing talk between songs and the price was right. The sound was great and they DJ'd during the breaks. Would definitely rehire. Thanks guys!
We hired Sho in early May to perform as a string quartet at the cocktail hour for our wedding, and we could not be happier with his performance! I love classical music but do not know string quartets as well, so Sho helped recommend some songs that would fit well. He was always very responsive and professional in communicating while planning the event. And best of all was the performance, as the quartet looked and sounded superb! It is clear that they all love music and are very talented and professional. I will highly recommend Sho to anyone in the future!
Kevin is teaching my 3-5 year old students piano after 6 weeks they are able to play several songs Independantly.
My daughter was taking voice and piano lessons for 2 yrs. We were very unhappy with her progress and looked for different instructors. I came across Marty's bio and he appeared to be exactly what I was looking for. We started voice with him in February of this year and I can't believe the difference not only in my daughter's voice but also in the confidence he has helped her gain. Her vocal strength and range has broaden in such a short amount of time it's unbelievable. Prior to Marty, she refused to sing for anyone and everyone and now in just 5 short months she has decided to sing in a talent competition where there will be hundreds of people. We now have both our kids working with Marty for voice and piano and we couldn't be more thrilled!!! When it's time for lessons my kids practically run out the door because they can't wait to work with Marty. He IS THE music instructor you're looking for!!!! My only regret is that I didn't find him sooner!
