I have known Ivan for many years and have heard him perform many times in many different venues. He is full of talent and knowledge, his repertoire is huge, and his music is soulful and full of feeling. He is truly and profoundly passionate about music (composition, performance, teaching). He is reliable, personable, charming, and aiming to please. Highly recommended!
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!!!
Amazing teacher with a vast knowledge of jazz music. Highly recommended
To whom it may concern: Jacob Sayraf has been teaching my 10 year-old son Steven the guitar and vocals for over a year and a half now. He has been a wonderful teacher, and my son has made great progress under his tutelage. Before he met Jacob he didn't know how to play the guitar at all. Jacob is also sharing with Stevie a wealth of songs from a broad range of folk, country, rock, pop, and standards. Some of these include: "We'll Meet Again", "Bad Bad Leroy Brown", "Blue Moon of Kentucky", "House of the Rising Sun", "Blue Suede Shoes", "In My Life", "Hot Tamales and Theyr'e Red Hot", and "Don't Worry, Be Happy". Stevie is getting a sound musical education through Jacob. Jacob is doing a great job of not only teaching Stevie the guitar, but also the theory of music behind it. He gives Stevie homework, which Stevie dutifully does. Jacob also goes out of his way to borrow sheet music books from the library so he can lend them to Stevie. Most importantly, Stevie has a lot of fun with Jacob and always looks forward to his next lesson, which to me is a sign of a great teacher. I would definitely recommend Jacob for any teaching position you have. Sincerely, Jeffery Ringle
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.
So glad we used a harpist through Sweet Harmony! It was so easy getting in touch with Tara anytime I had a question, she was really on top of everything. We had 2 songs that we really wanted to be played, and they were able to add them into the repertoire of song choices. It was such a beautiful addition to our wedding ceremony, and I would definitely recommend Sweet Harmony to anyone looking to hire a musician.
Adam is an extremely intelligent and knowledgeable jazz teacher. He is incredibly proficient in jazz theory and has a very friendly teaching style that helps the student with feel, technique, theory and above all, instilling a love for the jazz art form.
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
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!
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.
Oli taught me for about three years from when I was 12 years old to 15. My lessons with him played a pivotal role in my development as a musician. I found him to be extremely motivating and by having him as a mentor I was able to improve my skills immensely. I will always look fondly upon my lessons with Oli and regard him highly as an educator and a musician. This year I will be starting the Jazz course at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, and it is clear to me that my deep passion for jazz music that continues to this day was initially inspired by Oli, and for that I am very grateful.
I could not have asked for a better experience than I had taking voice lessons with Rebecca for three consecutive years. With her help, I improved not only my voice but my confidence. When I started working with Rebecca my voice was barely trained and I had little control or knowledge over how I was using it. She worked with me week after week, giving me new songs that would test my limits and then show me techniques and strategies that would help my voice grow to the strength it would need for that song. I constantly found that a song would feel hard when she first gave it to me and then suddenly appear easier two or three weeks later because of how she was pushing me. It was Rebecca's genuine interest and faith in my voice that kept me going back to her for years, too. When I thought a note was too high to hit or a rhythm was impossible to figure out, she would gently insist that I would get it and then prove time and time again that I could. I owe my voice and my confidence to Rebecca and the incredible teacher, guide and role model that she is to her students.
Helene was my piano teacher from kindergarten through high school. She taught me how to read, understand, play and love music. Furthermore, my early -and in-depth- start with piano prepared me for years of trumpet in various advanced bands. Although I am not currently taking lessons, I still sit down to play piano whenever I get the chance. I'll play anything from Bach to Beethoven to Josh Groban to new and classic Disney - really anything I'm in the mood for. Helene's teaching has made me proficient enough in piano and music in general such that I can truly enjoy playing. Thanks Helene!!
Lou is a conscientious and dedicated musician and guitar teacher who tries his best tom teach the skills necessary to improve a students understanding of the instrument and guitar technique. He provides charts that focus on learning basic skills and accommodates the students personal interest in learning how they can present their favorite music in a more professional manner. He is also a very kind and supportive human being!
