Introduction: ENTERTAINMENT BAND: Services for weddings or other events. We are a network of musicians founded by myself Marcelo Maccagnan, a Brazilian from Sao Paulo living in the great city of New York. We perform in New York greater area and are able to adapt for each individual request the client may need regarding instruments and musical repertoire or special requests. Some of the ensembles we can provide include: Solo Piano, Solo Guitar, Instrumental duo, Instrumental Trio, Instrumental Quartet, Instrumental Quintet, Instrumental Sextet, Singer Combos, Singer and Piano/Guitar/Bass duos among many others. Please take some time to check some of our recordings. We play anything from Brazilian music to instrumental Jazz to Pop. We will provide all equipment and most important, bring joy and energy and make this an UNFORGETTABLE PARTY! Looking forward on hearing from you! TEACHING: Established New York musician. Berklee College of Music Graduate. Have been teaching for many years and know that each student has their own mindset and we need to work around each person`s goals and interests. I teach mainly pop, rock, blues, jazz, classical, funk, RnB. All ages and levels are welcome. *** Lesson Details *** Lessons are very relaxed and we will focus on ways to practice and getting the student to learn what he/she wants. Some people just want to come and learn a few tunes, some want to really learn the instrument and practice all the time. It all depends on the individual and I`m more than ready to adapt for each one of my students with the methods I have. On our first class we will spend some time discussing what are the goals of the student and I will formulate a good plan so we can reach those goals in no time. I usually have 3 main paths that the student can choose. 1st - Learn the instrument enough so you can play your favorite songs and have fun with friends. 2nd(most requested) - Learn the instrument from scratch. Study technique, repertoire, a little of reading and music theory and learn how to improvise. This will allow the person to have their own tools to study on their own after attending classes with me. 3rd - Usually people who have been playing before like this one. We will go deep in music theory, ear training, reading, improvising and technique. Always leaning challenging tunes that will develop the student skills. This one allows the student to follow a professional path on the future, or maybe go into a music college. *Location Classes can be taken online, students location(Brooklyn and Manhattan only), or at my home studio in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. *AUDITION PREP I also help people to prepare for auditions. For this subject, I will tell you how to get ready for an audition. If you are trying to get in a college I have many contacts around the country and know how most auditions work and can help you with any question there might be. For auditions for orchestras or band we can work on repertoire and behavior to get you ready and all set to get accepted.

It was a beautiful experience. I needed to record my Spanish poems, and in addition to the skills of the tech person, I was looking for a studio where I would feel comfortable reading my poems in Spanish. And Marcelo was the perfect tech. In addition to his tech skills, he made me felt comfortable and not intimidated by the mic. Patient and sensitive with my work, which helped me to do my best.Beautiful home studio with a great ambience. Highly recommended.

It was really easy booking/working with Marcelo. I booked his services for a live acoustic musician for a private dinner. The musician who arrived was on time, and professional, and his music absolutely completed the vibe we were trying to achieve for the evening. Highly recommended!

Marcelo is a super talented guitar player/teacher, and so glad I found him on Thumbtack! He is patient, knows his stuff, and will work with you on helping you learn songs that you actually like or want to learn. I am a new guitar player and didn't know anything really about the guitar, and after one lesson, I started learning how to play a song. He is top notch and highly recommend him!
