Verified review

I worked with Jose for 3 years during our time together at Eastman. As an accompanist, his insights into the poetic, dramatic, and musical aspects into any vocal piece presented to him were always incredibly well informed and creative. He often pushed me to push the envelope of complacency and raised my standards for quality musicianship. This desire to push boundaries is echoed in his compositions, which stands as a testimony for his technical and engineering prowess. His earnest, hard working attitude is matched only by his depth of musical expression, intuition, and technique. His range of keyboard styles and technique would always astound me during our time together. Any project, musical or non-musical, that Jose is a part of always thrives. He remains to this day the hardest working high talent musician I have ever known. If you want the highest caliber of music, you need Jose Benjamin Escobar.

From the minute Gena walked through the door, I knew we were a perfect fit. Her mix of linear and creative approaches to teaching piano has helped me grow as a musician and thinker. She finds ways to make small chat in-between informative instruction which helps the student's mind digest all the new musical material. Gena is a genuine person and knowledgable teacher who I would recommend to anyone :)

Maia and I worked as camp counselors together at "Camp Jam," where kids work on their technical, collaborative, and performance skills in music. Maia was not only adored by her campers for her friendly and approachable personality, but successful gained their trust and respect as a musician, teaching many lessons and giving advice that was noticeably taken by the students. Maia is fantastic to work with!

Erik taught my son guitar (he is 12 now) for the last three years and we were always pleased with his teaching and the outcome. My son learned so much and had the confidence to even perform at a classical guitar night for the public as well as playing for my sister's wedding!

Both my boys took lessons from Luke over the summer. He was always ready for the lessons on time and they practiced to end of each lesson. Luke is professional and understands how to work with younger students. He also knows how to encourage their progress. Luke's a great instructor and his rate is reasonable. I highly recommend Luke to teach music lessons to you or your kids!

While looking for a percussion Instructor for my then 5 year old Grandson...I was guided to Eric by the well established EASTMAN SCHOOL OF MUSIC. I was having a hard time finding someone who would teach so young a student... And what a Great choice .. Eric was patient,and recognized the gift that I saw.. after one year of lessons, he suggested that I seek a scholarship for him to the community program, which he also help initiate... Eric himself is a wonderful , dedicated talent...And the ability to share that, and translate that to a young musician was Wonderful to see..( and I'm not just some doting Grandma....I too am a Musician..U.S Army Bands..(Ret)

Grace was amazing to work with. She was open to playing any song we wanted & learned the song very quickly and played it beautifully on the day of our wedding. She is extremely talented and a rare find for a solo violinist. I would highly recommend hiring her for your event! She is also such a sweet girl to work with.

They are a great crew! They surely stand by there quote and motto. The only reason it isn't 5 stars is because they communicated way too much for us. We felt we should only know iif something went wrong thankfully nothing did go wrong, but they called us to let us know the caterer and DJ were all set and we had no worries. Other than that, great service and affordable beyond belief. When they had to increase the price you can tell they felt bad, but they have a business to run. Will continue to recommend them.
