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.
My newlywed spouse and I hired Eric to play classical guitar for the prelude, processional, and recessional music at our wedding. To put it simply, he was perfect. We had contacted him just two months before the ceremony to begin preparation, but in that time, he had written his own arrangements to the two songs we had requested him to play and kept us up to speed with recordings of his progress along the way - all with a smile and distinct professionalism despite our requests for adjustments. On the day of, he was early to the venue, played beautifully, and turned out to be a great addition to the rest of the day as many of our guests later told us that they had met him and enjoyed his company. We couldn't have asked for more. Eric met our budget, and exceeded our expectations.
The Wayne Batchelor Jazz Band is professional and talented. We hired them for our Spring Benefit recently and all the attendees enjoyed their music. These musicians really know how to jam up the room. If you are looking for live jazz music then you need to consider them. In fact, we plan on hiring them again for future events.
I Robert Pavelka highly recommend Umusic and Lou Ubrianco for all your Music Education, and Guitar Playing. I have known Lou for many years, and alway's look forward to hearing and seeing him play Guitar with his proficiency. I recently studied with Lou for 2 years, and found myself playing much better. I've participated in a Guitar Workshop, and Band workshop, and I'm looking forward to more learning. Lou is a kind person who can make the music experience, enlightening for young and old.
Charles plays both the piano and organ with great skill. He is a joy to work with and has a great sense of humor. I highly recommend him.
75th Birthday party for my husband and Ron played many of his favorites with a bass and drum as well. Just great! Good humored and great to work with!
"I hired DJ Brian to play at my sisters wedding shower.......and I would highly recommend him for any occasion where a DJ is needed. He arrived on time and was well prepared and eager to entertain. He played a wide selection of music that kept the crowd alive and jumping for four hours of fun and dance. I received many compliments on my choice of DJ selection from party goers. He was very responsive to the crowd and fulfilled all their music request. I would definitely recommend DJ Brian if you are ready for a night of fun, music and dance. James Green Brooklyn, NY"
I had the privilege of working with Yuma in the summer of 2014. We decided that we would exchange lessons; I would teach him drum set fundamentals and he would teach me jazz theory. I showed him some basic rudiments, and basic grooves from the jazz and rock idiom. He helped me get a jumpstart on theory by teaching basic jazz chord voicings and the ii-V-I chord progression, and challenging me to take it on 12 keys. This was essential because it helped me stay current with my jazz piano and jazz theory class that I took that following fall semester! And at times after we exchanged instruments, we just had a jam session with him on tenor sax and me on drums. Not only is he a fantastic teacher...he's an awesome musician as well!
Alex is a great teacher who helped me become a better and more confident drummer. I've played guitar and bass in bands in the past, but I wanted to branch out and learn drums to form a new band so I sought out Alex for lessons. He has really helped me understand the concepts I need to progress as a drummer. Been getting my chops up and hope to get the band gigging soon.
Mike plays drums in my band. He is friendly, flexible, professional, always prepared, and talented. He is a pleasure to work with, and a hard working gentleman.
I hired Andy to play at my restaurant many times. I have known Andy for over a decade now, and I associate him with some of the best bands in town. When he plays solo he is respectful of his audience and plays an excellent range of music. He is definitely a crowdpleaser. And I can always count on him to arrive on time and play for as long as we agreed that he would play. I recommend him highly – and look forward to working with him again.
Ofer is one of the most gifted and creative teachers I have ever had. He is very observant and uses different teaching techniques depending on the student's needs and learning style. I consider myself having a "wandering mind" however, Ofer was able to keep the classes motivating, challenging and fun. He is flexible in his teaching approach- and will work with you to get the most of your classes. Whether you want change careers and want to start your own band in your mid- thirties; whether you are just looking to improving your brain and motoric skills; whether you are a student preparing to get into a conservatory; or whether you have a small child that shows interest in rhythm- Ofer is your guy. Always positive, always encouraging, highly intuitive, patient- as well as demanding and inspiring. I would highly recommend him as a teacher. And if you have a musically inclined child, then there is nothing better than a teacher who can truly capture your child's interest and curiosity, while also instilling the importance of good work ethics and perserverance in order to reach their goals.
Great! Perfect for weddings, or any occasion. Would hire 10/10 times again.
Lessons were well planned, personalized, and productive. I looked forward to my lessons with Tabitha. Her knowledge and love for music helped me to excel as a flute player. Tabitha is an awesome teacher!
Mr. Marcel Blanchet, Mr. Lonnie Gasparini and Mr. Paul Gabriel performed their extraordinary blues with style for us at our graduation party. I was fortunate to be able to book them. These men are serious musicians -- each with an impressive curriculum vitae of playing at major venues and with world-renowned artists over the years. They turned our pool party into a blues festival! They arrived right on time, set up their own lighting and sound system very quickly and professionally, were open to playing inside our home in case it rained, and were extremely helpful with suggestions on how to configure the dancing area in tent and outside on our driveway. They were accommodating regarding requests. They were extremely professional and yet friendly. They got everyone up and dancing, and all evening I heard nothing but compliments about their sound. They played a perfect mix of original pieces with classic selections, and the combination of percussion, Hammond organ and lead guitar was perfect! Their intuition was right on as to what to play to keep the party lively. My husband and I felt proud to treat our guests to an evening of excellent blues in our own backyard! I would recommend these gentlemen to anyone who's looking to create a fabulous blues party experience. Kind thanks for everything, Marcel and the band! We will try to book you again for our next event!!
