Thank you Nick for making my daughters Engagement Party one to remember. The DJ music and your sons solo music had everyone on the dance floor. We enjoyed it so much and received a lot of good feedback. We also loved the photo booth and all the pictures. Thank you for your solo at the end it was awesome! I will let you know when my daughter sets her wedding date. Joanne
Absolutely perfect—that sums up our experience with Scott. We hired Scott to entertain our 40 guests at our annual holiday party in our home in Tribeca, and his skills, background and music blew away the other vendors who submitted quotes. Not only is he a wonderfully talented pianist, he is a composer, arranger and teacher. As such, he brings unparalleled skills in creating the perfect musical backdrop to any function…and our holiday soiree was no exception. Warm and welcoming in person and via email, he is professional, pleasant and aims to please. My wife & I asked Scott to prepare a set list filled with sounds of the season—and Scott prepared and performed an endless array of wonderful holiday classics infused with touches of jazz…providing the ideal mood for conversation, laughter and enjoyment. We will most certainly be booking Scott again for our private and corporate events moving forward, and strongly urge anyone looking for a fantastically talented pianist to hire him for any type of gathering, large or small.
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.
Ivan was a phenomenal addition to our holiday event on Friday, December 16th. He was extremely accommodating, and very professional. He is truly a talented man, and we can't wait to use him at our next non-profit event. I highly recommend Ivan to whoever is look for a solo pianist.
Al Louis Entertainment did an outstanding job at our wedding! Friends and family were having a blast on the dance floor all night long. I've known Alan personally for many years and he is an amazing performer and music professional!
I met Gary about 15 years ago, when I moved to the States. His rock music teaching program for aspiring musicians of any age, grouped by skill level and interests rather than just age group, grabbed my attention the first time I visited the (now defunct, unfortunately) East Coast Music store. I joined his program, and before I knew it I became part of many bands that he formed over the years, making lots of new musical friends in addition to improving my skills. Gary's music talent is unparalleled: he knows thousands of songs across different genres by heart, his soloing skills are amazing (especially in jazz and rock) yet he only uses them artfully to refine the sound of the band, complementing shortcomings of the wanna-be musicians that he is teaching love for music to. The result is that any aspiring musician, no matter the age and playing skills, is offered a joyful and enticing environment to play music in, and feel "I did it, I can do even better and I know now what to practice on next". I am fascinated by his ability to interact with children all ages, get the most out of them and make them feel proud of their performances. When I took music lessons as a teen ager, they were all about score reading and practicing passages. Of course they are important steps, but I never had a teacher like Gary who would also bring in the passion of sharing music in a band, learning from each others' mistakes, making commitments to other band members to practice and improve, performing in public every now and then as a motivating challenge to grow musically. More recently I enjoyed playing with Gary some serious jazz. His improvisation skills are amazing and head and shoulders above anybody I know. As I play my part I listen to his soulful re-interpretation of the tune in awe, realizing how much more I need to grow and I can learn from him. I don't think there is any other professional musician that like him can dialog with pro musicians and primary school kids beginners with the same ease.
You would be hard pressed to find a better teacher, and a better value, than Jimi Durso. He is incredibly patient, which is invaluable for students of any age. He has a methodology to his approach, but is always willing to accommodate those lessons where you rush in just HAVING to learn how to play a particular song. Jimi is also a stunningly talented musician, and an incredible improviser, so he is able to demonstrate his lessons regardless of the musical idiom you are working in. He also has a plethora of anecdotal examples to illustrate his lessons (and entertain as well!). Let me sum it up this way: after taking lessons with Jimi Durso for some time, I gave him a raise because I felt there was more value in his teaching than what I was paying. When was the last time you voluntarily paid more for something?
We strongly recommend the string quartet from Consonance Music. Vasiliy and the string quartet performed the ceremony music for our wedding. Leading up the the event, they were very organized and always promptly replied to our questions or concerns. They supplied a helpful form for us to provide our music selections (for pre-ceremony, processional, etc.). They have a large repertoire including many classical and contemporary string arrangements, and even prepared a custom arrangement ("Melissa" by the Allman Brothers Band) for our ceremony. Their pricing was fair and their musicianship was excellent. We received many compliments on the music at the wedding. With the cost of planning a wedding, we were unsure that we could include live music in our budget. But looking back, it was one of the best choices we made and can honestly say it transformed our ceremony.
Sean is an amazing musician. Furthermore, he teaches music theory in a proper way. He is a good music teacher.
I briefly took guitar lessons from Josh. I wanted to learn to play with other musicians and improvise, and his jazz background is what caught my attention. The sessions were informative and Josh was very encouraging. I had to stop unexpectedly but what I learned in the few lessons I took was very helpful and got me out of the rut I fall into while practicing on my own.
I came to Marty to learn to sign while I played my guitar. I was more curious to see if I can be a recreational vocalist. Marty has been working with me to identify the root note in a chord and how to sign in key. It's amazing what a professional like Marty can pick up on and help me with.
Talking Machine played at backyard party and was a huge hit. Great musicians and vocals, great selection of songs! The guests said they made the party!
Matthew is very professional musician. He took a lot of time to assist me preparing a very special song list for my husband's birthday dinner party. My family really enjoyed themselves especially because of his soulful sounds from playing the saxophone. He was mesmerizing. And, we're going to invite him back in the near future. Thanks, Matthew!
Mikhail was responsive, flexible and attentive when preparing the event. The day of, he was punctual and very professional. His performance (and his colleagues'; a cellist and a saxophonist we hired too for really interesting rates) was wonderful and guests really enjoyed it. We are very happy with him, added up to a extremy beautiful day and would not only recommend him but also hire him hands down for any special event.
Drew is an exceptional musician and teacher. He is adapt at making abstract musical concepts concise and easy to understand. Drew also has a way of making challenging techniques feel less intimidating. Anyone who can make barre chords feel comfortable for a student is an excellent teacher!
Steve is not only a great musician and teacher, but a terrific role model for my kids. He always shows up on time ready to teach with a positive attitude. My children always look forward to his lessons and they are motivated to continue with their musical practice.
My 13-year old has been taking piano lessons from Brittany for nearly two years now, and we would highly recommend her to others looking for lessons. Brittany is an immensely talented musician in her own right, and she knows how to reach students of all ages and skill levels to maximize their musical growth and enjoyment.
I follow Nico's gigs as regularly as possible and have been doing so ever since her fledgling days as a singer song-writer. I love her original music as it has captivating melodies and heartfelt lyrics . She is quite tenacious in getting herself "out there" and in so doing, she leaves me breathless with all the things she does to promote her talents at any one time. I like to go with friends to hang out at her various gigs and be entertained by her while casually enjoying good food rather than a cover band with very loud music. Nico is a very talented singer and musician who plays different instruments equally well.
My daughter was hesitant to start lessons, but felt very comfortable with Gabriella. She learned so much in such a short time! Gabriella is a gifted musician.
Oli taught me for about three years from when I was 12 years old to 15. My lessons with him played a pivotal role in my development as a musician. I found him to be extremely motivating and by having him as a mentor I was able to improve my skills immensely. I will always look fondly upon my lessons with Oli and regard him highly as an educator and a musician. This year I will be starting the Jazz course at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, and it is clear to me that my deep passion for jazz music that continues to this day was initially inspired by Oli, and for that I am very grateful.
OMM is a very talented musician with a unique approach to entertaining the listener's ears. From the headless neck of his guitar to his computer generated digital accompaniment Matt will keep the party rolling.
