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.
Absolutely perfect—that sums up our experience with Scott. We hired Scott to entertain our 40 guests at our annual holiday party in our home in Tribeca, and his skills, background and music blew away the other vendors who submitted quotes. Not only is he a wonderfully talented pianist, he is a composer, arranger and teacher. As such, he brings unparalleled skills in creating the perfect musical backdrop to any function…and our holiday soiree was no exception. Warm and welcoming in person and via email, he is professional, pleasant and aims to please. My wife & I asked Scott to prepare a set list filled with sounds of the season—and Scott prepared and performed an endless array of wonderful holiday classics infused with touches of jazz…providing the ideal mood for conversation, laughter and enjoyment. We will most certainly be booking Scott again for our private and corporate events moving forward, and strongly urge anyone looking for a fantastically talented pianist to hire him for any type of gathering, large or small.
I've really been enjoying my lessons with Mike. I've only ever played the drums a few times in school about 10 years ago and now with only 4 lessons under my belt I'm already up to lesson 8 in the book. I always look forward to class as he teaches you the fundamentals but also lets you feel your own beat and rock out to your favorite music. He's fun, professional and very good at what he does! Thanks Mike!!!
I worked with Ivan on a project titled "A Void Home" some years back. The soundtrack music he provided was top notch, atmospheric and touching and perfectly suited to the mood of the space documentary his work was commissioned for. I've additionally heard his work on other projects and attended his live performances. Always special and fabulous.
Gary is FABULOUS! He is patient and kind, and really quite funny! Best of all, Gary can cultivate a child's natural talent for music. One of the many awesome skills Gary has is the ability to group children together to form bands. He puts bands together where the children bring out each other's musical strengths. These kids have ended up forming friendships and bonds that are long lasting. Even a shy child feels comfortable performing, after Gary's encouragement and tutelage. My oldest child, now in college, attributes his love for music to Gary. We cannot say enough positive things about Gary and encourage everyone to bring their children to Gary for music lessons.
Al Louis Entertainment did an outstanding job at our wedding! Friends and family were having a blast on the dance floor all night long. I've known Alan personally for many years and he is an amazing performer and music professional!
Michelle was a wonderful singing coach! We will be hiring her again!!
I briefly took guitar lessons from Josh. I wanted to learn to play with other musicians and improvise, and his jazz background is what caught my attention. The sessions were informative and Josh was very encouraging. I had to stop unexpectedly but what I learned in the few lessons I took was very helpful and got me out of the rut I fall into while practicing on my own.
I actually got in touch with Jimi through Thumbtack, and was pleased with the lessons I got right from the start. We're working on music theory and composition, and I managed to learn something I regarded as monstrously difficult for years in the span of a month or two. Jimi makes music accessible and "not scary", adapting his lessons to each student's needs. Highly recommended.
Spencer & Sequoia are abosolutely amazing! I hired them to play a song for my proposal in Central Park and they were great. They played the song perfectly and really created a magical and initiate atmosphere! It was better than I could have ever imaginged. Thank you guys! 👏👏
Barbara matches music students with music teachers.
Dianne, Monk and Sam of the Talking Machine headlined our fundraiser, music festival wedding in August 2017. They are fabulous musicians - huge diversity of ability - their own unique take on cover songs, and their own original music which is totally awesome. They also look like rock stars, have the stage presence of rock stars, but also somehow are organized and helpful and super responsive on email. I would recommend Talking Machine to anyone hosting an event or any bar who wants to draw in more customers. If they had a standing set at my local bar, I would go every week! You won't be disappointed!
Kino is my piano teacher. She's not just professional but really cares about students. I learn faster with her because she's patient to me. I enjoy her class a lot.
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.
This is a review for Nicole's professional presence and responsiveness on Thumbtack. Though my fiancee and I chose to go with a harpist for our wedding (we simply felt the instrument was a better fit for our spring garden ceremony ambience), I was very impressed with Nicole's communicativeness. Over the course of a month, Nicole provided several custom recordings to help me decide if the cello was right for us. Her quote was extremely reasonable and her playing is lovely--I will definitely seek her out for future music needs!
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. Very Best - Jen M Vanella Vocal Specialist, Artist, Educator, & Advocate
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!
Adam is an incredibly patient and motivational teacher who easily adapts to whatever style of learning and music work best for you. I'm very interested in music theory, and have found Adam not only knowledgeable about any of the questions I have, but also able to relay the concepts in memorable, easy-to-learn ways. His lessons are well-paced, and I always leave excited to go home and start practicing. Would highly recommend Adam as an instructor!
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!
A true local music store in the very best sense of the phrase and what's missing in a lot of big box stores these days. Great gear, a great staff who care about the customers, lessons, clinics, the whole shebang. Highly recommended.
Arthur is an excellent, very well-rounded, guitar instructor. He is very knowledgeable in quite a few aspects of guitar playing - from music theory, playing different styles, transcribing, to all the guitar gear and technology stuff. He has a nice studio, and is also very accuracy oriented, which I really like. I'm into learning to play the blues, rock and metal, and Arthur has been really helpful with that. Highly recommended!
