After our DJ cancelled just weeks before our wedding, my husband and I were nervous and scrambling to find a replacement. By that point most DJs in our area were booked, but Nick from the Wedding and Party Center had that same Friday night free. Even with the rushed circumstances though, he was very understanding of our budget and worked with our couple to create a DJ - MC - dance light package that was just perfect for our reception needs. Nick was very professional, we didn't need to worry about anything once the reception got started, and worked well with our coordinator to keep everything moving smoothly and according to schedule. The music was fantastic, and once invited up, our guests never left the dance floor. To our surprise and to the entertainment and enjoyment of our guests, he also threw in a few live solos (Nick and his whole family are also musicians and professional vocalists). I was especially appreciative that Nick could cater to our very diverse and international group, half brazilian, and half english-american-korean-japanese-etc. Once he started playing South American and Latin songs the party became even more lively, and our guests stayed to the end of the night. Thank you Nick and the Wedding and Party Center for not only saving the day in a tight spot, but providing and excellent service and helping us celebrate with a great party on our wedding day.

Awesome teacher, he just jumps right in with you. Our first class I learned the basics of drums, names of each, some drum rudiments and then we went through some songs I liked and played along with the music. The lesson was fun, Mike is super easy going and provides lots of good feedback.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Tara, the owner of Sweet Harmony, while organizing music for my wedding. I was a bit clueless about what kind of music I wanted and she made the process of selecting the right instruments, musicians, songs (for each part of the ceremony and cocktail hour!) completely painless. On the day, the musicians were wonderful. We needed them to play at two locations back to back so they set up, broke-down and traveled to the next location, in a way that was seamless and unobtrusive. They also played beautifully and surprised our guests by playing slightly obscure English hymns that we'd requested, stunningly. Thank you for a truly wonderful experience!

He did great with all of our last minute changes, but he didn't play a lot of the music we wanted. We had given him a playlist of salsa music but played a lot of Motown. That is our only issue, but otherwise the Spanish music he did play was great and our family had a blast.

I have been taking private singing lessons with Christine for about two years. During this time her coaching has opened up my voice both technically and in terms of emotional expression. We have worked together on a range of classical music, and she is a very hands-on, positive but also exacting teacher. In addition to helping build my repertoire and improve my technique, she also gives me advice about the performance business. I would recommend her 100% to anyone who loves to sing and wants to work on their technique and performance.

I took lessons from Jimi for string bass and later for guitar. Through his lessons, I learned how to do more than just read notes on a page. I learned the other important skills of improvising and jamming with others. If I ever had a problem, Jimi would notice and help me work through it. I'm now able to jam out to jazz music on bass and guitar, and it's all thanks to Jimi.

Sean and his band provided ideal lively jazz music at a local event. They were super easy to communicate with beforehand, and they played beautifully to a large very appreciative crowd. I strongly recommend them.

Kevin is a terrific teacher and person. Patient, calm, smart, looking for a connection for what I have wanted to learn. He's a great player who knows how to convey how he got where he is. I always leave feeling encouraged and challenged, my head full of music. The best possible experience.

Both of my daughters studied flute with Kazuko over several years. They learned so much from her. Beyond fluency in technique, Kazuko cares enormously about their development as musicians and their artistry. It has been a joyful endeavor.

My experience with Yuto, I could say, was life-changing. The amount of not only knowledge, but really feeling of what Jazz and music in general can be, was endless. Yuto treats you as a real friend, and his lessons are both very practical, but also with a theoretical foundation that really provides a real sense of what you are playing or composing. Also, Yuto, above all, is a great human being, with a big heart and passion for music. We ended up recording some things at his studio and continue to be good friends. I will always thank him and consider him to be one of the best musicians I´ve played with and hope to play again soon with him. To anyone that is looking for lessons on Jazz, or classical or any kind of music. I could, with all sincerety say, Yuto is the one for you. -Diego D.

I had started getting into Latin music a little over a year ago when I met first met Nick Herman. Originally, I tried to learn to play Latin percussion (congas, bongos, timbales etc.) from books and instructional videos. I also tried lessons with a few different musicians. I was at it for months, however, I found my progress to be very slow. Eventually, I confronted Nick about lessons. After only 5 lessons, my bongo playing had improved exponentially! I would play my bongos with other musicians in the park and after one or two songs, many people would compliment me on my playing. One night I played a duet with a guitarist who would compliment me on my playing after every song. Later, I came to find out he was the leader of a salsa band who frequently performed around the city! Shortly after that I made Nick my official trainer on the bongos and cowbell! Nick Herman also leads his own band. I think anyone who is serious about learning Latin percussion would benefit greatly by having Nick as an instructor. I wish I had began lessons with him sooner!

I am writing this review as a Colleague. While I have not taken lessons with Candice I know as a seasoned Professional Musician and Teacher myself what makes excellence: and excellence is what Candice's Music Studio offers. Candice is Passionate, Crafted at her Art, and an Excellent Leader and Team Player. It takes a lot more than a Degree in Music to be a great Teacher. You have to have Talent,Heart as well as intellect, instinct and: a desire to constantly be expanding your own horizons while lifting those up around you. Candice has those things in spades. Professionally, I refer Students and Professionals to Voice Studios all the time especially in NY. I would not hesitate to send my own Students to Candice's Music Studio.

Our family has been students of The Piano Workshop at Chester for more 8+ years. We are at-home students, so we are not always in the studio, but when we are, we are so impressed with the staff and the overwhelming love of music and dedication to passing that love along to the students. While our teachers have turned over through the years, the excellent talent and teaching skills have not. My son's current teacher, Sonia Kiernan, is a very special person, not only a very talented musician. How someone keeps a 15-year old boy's love for piano thriving like she does is beyond me!

I'm not a musician myself, but I was blown over by how easy Caroline was to work with and she is clearly a talented violinist--she helped make our wedding really beautiful. Some of my musician friends commented on how technically amazing her playing was, and I'd definitely defer to their thoughts on the music front :). I'd highly recommend Caroline to play at any event where music, professionalism, and quality really matters! Thanks, Caroline!

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!

Mikhail is perfect! He is very talented, a professional and can play everything you request! He and his mom played for my wedding, everyone complimented how they sounded. People thought at first it was background music from mp3 that was playing but realized it was professional musicians playing for the wedding. They made my wedding beautiful.
