Scott is a pleasure to work with. He's so talented! 5 Stars for Scott Arcangel - Hire him, you won't be disappointed. Rhonda, Mother of the Bride.
Nick's guy Ron was great! They worked with our budget and really got the crowd going. I would definitely hire him again. He had any song we wanted! Thanks guys.
I've played with Jimi since the first time I picked up the instrument (bass for 11 years). Lessons with him enabled me to play in big bands and small ensembles at the college level, as well as have a steady stream of gigs when I was in school. His method of teaching is sadly growing rarer and rarer in private lesson study. Rather than mandate to the student rote musical examples which are a.) boring and b.) relate nothing about learning actual music, Jimi's approach is a holistic one that has faith in pupil's drive and intelligence. He demonstrates aspects of music theory fundamentals, and then has the student utilize the formulas he has imparted to extrapolate the rest, with his guidance of course. If the student has trouble, Jimi instructs to fill in the gaps but never spoon feeds. This method insures the student actually learns and internalizes the information, rather than becomes an automaton. Moreover, Jimi encourages the students to bring in pieces that they actually like to play! So instead of spending months hammering out a highly diluted version of a Bach morning song, the student can bring in pieces by Zep, the Strokes, the Black Keys, Rihanna, whatever! Jimi then instructs through elucidating the music theory fundamentals within the songs that drew the student to the instrument in the first place! Jimi is professional, yet laid back. I have continued my friendship with him after studying and going on to professional life. He's just a good dude to know. Lastly, and this should be the last thing you consider. Jimi's rates are always reasonable. For private study in college, I paid 3-4 times as much for a lesson as what I paid when taking a lesson with Jimi. I hope you Long Islander aspiring musicians realize what a gem you have there.
Matt has knowledge of, and an appreciation for ALL types of music. Of course this is difficult because he attended Stony Brook in the 60's and was exposed to the very best of Rock music. But he transcended that period, kept his high regards for Dylan and Jimi, and continued to grow as a musician and person. I've seem him at several jobs, and he reads the audience very well and makes the event a happy occasion for all.
I'm going to start this review with saying Ivan is awesome!!!!! During the whole process he was the sweetest person and it was a pleasure working with him. He learned songs for our wedding that he never played before and he was at great guy from the very first phone call. He's not just a musician he's an artist with his music and his songwriting. He does his from his heart and you can see and hear it. It meant a lot to us. He came extra early to set up and he wore a tuxedo. I will definitely hire him without even a second thought and highly recommend him. THANK YOU IVAN from the bottom of our hearts Jim and Carol 💗
Gary is one of the most talented people I have ever met!! His musical talent and years of experience make working with him very special. I am one of his "older" students and I am thrilled to be a part of one of his bands. Gary provides all students the chance to perform many times during the year which enhances the learning experience. The performances also create a strong and supportive bond among students and family. Because Gary is skilled at so many different instruments and voice, there is truly something for everyone. And, he has a good sense of humor :)
Fantastic musicians! Female/male both sing amazingly! Guitar skills are incredible! I would hire them again and again. Great people and great performance! Everyone at my party was raving about them. Almost don't want to give their number out, want to keep it to myself! Thank you so much!
Soulful Sounds were the perfect choice for our son's graduation party! It was an amazing night with thunderstorms, rainbow & music ! They played to a large gathering of over a 100 people. A very professional band who adjusted to the situation and played remarkably. Highly recommend!
So good! He has helped me in many different ways, from exercises to building technique, to how to conquer challenging pieces, to even prepping me for gigs in the city. So calm, and encouraging, and clear with sharing ideas on how to become a better pianist.
DJ Al did a fantastic job. He was early to set up, organized and tidy. Very respectful and professional. An outstanding job with the music!! He kept the party going to the very end and read the crowd PERFECTLY. He made the night one of the very best I’ve seen. You’re looking at many options, but I assure you Al is the very best! Hire him, you won’t regret it. Al, thank you for your hard work and talent, it was great working with you!
Working with Jacob was better than I could've ever expected. He was super supportive and responsive. We hit the ground running with songs I had only dreamed of being able to play. On top of that, he gave me the confidence to perform for friends, family, and a few real live gigs. I would 100% recommend him as a teacher, but do it before he gets booked up.
Wanted to surprise my wife on our birthdays at a retreat in PAs poconos. Hired James and dont regret about it! Came an hour ealrly to set up. Very social and outgoing. Would definitely recommend and hire again
I had the honor of having Tye Austin perform at an ecology and sustainability benefit I was hosting back in the summer of 2015. The theme for the event was Return to Simplicity. Everything at the event was minimalist in design and completed using ecological and sustainable practices, including the use of minimal electricity, and where needed it was provided only with renewable energy. It was important for us to have acoustic music that could compliment the naturalistic setting, but still maintain a high level of elegance and sophistication. Tye went out of us his way to help us arrange the music area to accomplish just this while still projecting loud enough for an audience of over 60 people. His natural professionalism, attention to detail and passion for every aspect of the experience was wonderfully enjoyed. His performance was the most raw and visceral part of the entire evening. Everyone in attendance was captivated and mesmerized by the power and beauty of living music. Even the crickets and birds were in sync. I would highly recommend Tye to anyone who is considering having music at their event. I know everyone in attendance that night would most certainly as well. Thank you so much Tye for such a memorable evening. It was a privilege creating with you. Chase Waters San Francisco, California
I had a wonderful experience with Continuo Music. Barbara was communicative and helped me pick the perfect music for my wedding ceremony. The musicians were excellent and were on time! My guests were extremely impressed with the music and we couldn't have been happier.
