F A B U L O U S ! Just had Arlington Highschool Reunion ( 30th ) I called Nick 5 days before our reunion and was booked by the end of the night. The gentlemen were awesome. The photobooth was non-stop for 4 hours. My crazy classmates couldn't get enough. Joe the photographer was perfect. I will never use anyone else. Quick response, courteous, explained everything and these to young gentlemen had to deal with our 100 49 year olds !!! Thank you so much guys..
Christine is a truly phenomenal teacher. If you have any hesitations about starting voice lessons because you are afraid of singing in front of other people, have no fear! Christine made me feel completely comfortable from the very first minute of our first lesson together. She is classically trained and extremely knowledgable about singing. I would recommend beginning lessons with her to get a solid technical foundation even if you eventually want to sing pop or R&B (i.e. she is not just for classical/opera singers!) That being said, I've met several of her other students and heard them sing and some are very serious students of the craft; she is an excellent teacher for experienced singers as well. During lessons, she plays her (baby?) grand piano in a large private area of her home. The walls in the singing area are filled with books of sheet music, but she also happily found specific songs online for me to work on when she didn't have the music already. She has an incredible ear- she truly listens to you and can pinpoint and explain to you exactly what to change (your posture or breathing, enunciation etc.) to instantly improve your tone and pitch. Improving your voice is a long process, and there are no magical tricks (except practice practice practice!). But with Christine as your guide, you will see improvement and most importantly, you will gain confidence. She truly believes in her students, which helps them believe in themselves too.
I feel very fortunate that I had the opportunity to study with Ben Paterson. Ben is a master musician on both the piano and the organ, and he has a great understanding of the history and language of jazz, blues and R&B music. He is a fantastic teacher, and he is able to clearly explain technical and theoretical concepts in a very clear manner. I am a full-time professional musician and bandleader, and I had some very specific questions and problems that Ben was able to help me with. I highly recommend studying with Ben, and look forward to more lessons with him myself.
I'm Aziza, a song writer and artist from New York. One day many years ago I was looking for someone to help me put my music together in a studio. I called a number out of a Village Voice ad, and that was the beginning of a long music production relationship with Bruce Whitcomb. I'd have to say I'm currently mostly a jazz/R&B/musician/poet in my own right. I have been a musician my whole life due to a great part to my musical dad and having been strongly influenced by R&B artists when I grew up. Jazz is in my blood, and I was very glad to learn that Bruce had a deep love of it too. In many of our recordings in the beginning, I'd have Bruce program drums and then I'd play all the other parts. When I write, I get very specific about bass lines and parts I hear, and being a pianist primarily, I've always played my own keyboard parts. One day Bruce offered to play electric bass and guitar on a tune. I didn't really know he played back then! He sat back and attentively watched me put my music together without interjecting any more than that, which was in many ways refreshing- until I heard what he had to offer to enhance my music from his own perspective which was a lot. He always engineered the sessions very quickly and accurately, and for me as my own producer, that is really important in the studio. Anyway, his contributions became invaluable, and from that day on I was always interested to see where his parts would take my music. We have probably recorded about twenty songs together over about a twenty year span or so. I have my own band of great musicians and play primarily around the east coast. I have headed up the late night jazz jams at the Blue Note in NYC, been the primary keyboard sub in Oprah Winfrey's broadway show The Color Purple, been Natalie Cole's musical director and pianist on a several tours, and have had songs of mine covered by artists such as Ahmad Jamal, Natalie Cole and others. Bruce is a close friend and a very musical soul. I prize our musical relationship as much as our personal friendship. I know he can always do wonders in the studio and recommend his abilities highly to any aspiring artist on any level
I have played with Zerlina plenty of gigs through the past four years (ranging from Straight ahead Jazz to Funk and R&B) and can easily say that she is one of my favorite musicians to play with. She is delivers in a professional manor, regardless of the setting.
I saw DJ A at a private party recently. I was impressed by his music collection which had the crowd dancing all night. He played R&B, Hip Hop, House Music, Latin, Reggae/Reggaeton, Calypso, and Soca. He also had all the party favorite line dances. The added bonus was the videos to accompany the music, which was blended right along with his mixing. It gave a club feel even at a private party. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a DJ for any type of event.
Quartet plus 1 is an awesome group to work with. They are very professional, organized, and know how to make an event planning process enjoyable. My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Quartet Plus 1 for our wedding day in Central Park. They elegantly performed the various music genres we wanted, such as R&B, classical and Jazz. They did such a wonderful job and made our wedding day feel classy.
I had the opportunity to take piano lessons with Joseph in 2014, and could not have asked for a more competent or accommodating instructor. Joseph is an accomplished teacher, composer, arranger, and accompanist across a variety of styles and genres, and was able to craft lessons that met my diverse personal goals (which for me were a combination of learning classical piano technique, R&B/pop arrangements and basic music theory). He made my goals feel attainable and gave me practical tools to work towards them. Joseph was INCREDIBLY patient and lessons felt efficient and FUN! I would HIGHLY recommend Joseph to musicians of any level looking to broaden their theory knowledge, polish original compositions, or sharpen their piano skills in any style. Joseph is amazing!
Sol is the really the best you can get; not only is she an attentive vocal instructor, she's a professional ARTIST. She was able to really figure out my weaknesses, which really allowed me to zero-in to truly improve as a singer. She has a knack of explaining things that makes it easy for the student to understand and apply. No doubt one of the best decisions I've made thus far in my musical career!
