Jesse is a wonderful voice teacher. I come from a vocal music background and was quite serious, at one point planning on studying vocal music in college. As such, I've worked with a number of voice teachers in my "old life", but took a break for around 8 years after I lost my love for the subject. I decided it was time to revisit my lost love and it was very nerve wracking - I had lost a lot of my range, and hadn't seriously sang in years. However, Jesse has made it easy to return to music, and practices the kind of balanced teaching I was always looking for but never found when I was seriously studying. His vocal exercises are great - they successfully combine breath support, stretching range, and increasing intricacy. He has a variety of music styles as well, and won't peg you to one - musicals, jazz, opera, whatever. He balances a stress-free experience alongside pushing you when you need it. Most of all, I'm getting back into fighting shape (vocally), while still having fun and laughing a lot, and if there's anything I've learned, you have to be having fun.
Phil and Laura were excellent. Everybody at our private party enjoyed their talented music. They were very responsive to the needs of our guest (i.e. kids, special request). Thanks!!!
Kris is an excellent teacher and instructor. He caters each lesson to my abilities and interests. He explains music theory concepts clearly and follows up each lesson with an emailed summary of what was taught. He's willing to work with you at your pace. My skills as a pianist and song writer have improved significantly since I began working with Kris.
Sofia was my vocal teacher for 5 years. During these years she was my giude to develope my knowledge of music and singing and to pushing out my limits. Every lessons were personalized, shaped to my needs challanging in a safe friendly and encouraging athmosphere. Sofia is a talented teacher and artist and experienced and inteligent singer as well. Encouraged by her from just a hobby singing became my life long pession and I was accepted to a huge choir. My selfconfidence matured and I was able to sing for the audience. I wish she would have been less students and I would have been more time to take more lessons because each hours of learning was fab' Thanks a mill" Timi, from Hungary
Kyle has been instructing our daughter for 9 mo in guitar and we couldn't be more pleased. He is quite accomplished both musically and academically which we appreciate. He creates lessons to fit her needs, including a wide variety of activities from routine musical exercises, regularly sight reading new music, to writing her own music to name just a few. He is thoughtful, flexible, an absolute wealth of musical knowledge and just the right amount of structure. He holds her accountable and heartily praises her accomplishments. You absolutely cannot go wrong hiring him for your instruction!
I took violin lessons from Mirabai for about three months. I am an adult, and I had very little violin training prior. Always punctual and very professional, she possesses not only immense musical talent but also a keen teaching aptitude. She took a rigorous teaching approach while also accommodating the student's personal musical preferences. Classes with her were well above my expectation, and I would like to resume some time in the future.
Before I started voice with Deanna I was light in stage presence. I didn’t have a booming voice, and though I may still not- I felt Deanna’s direction allowed me to push past my previous limitations that I set for myself. The most difficult part about that was I hadn’t much experience singing for long periods as I later would with Deanna. I was very rough with my approach to singing- never warming up, and not aware of the harm straining can do. If I had continued down the path I was on I probably would have damaged my voice. I had always heard of the precautions singers took, but I tended to dismiss them as obsessive or myth. The thing about Deanna is that her approach to instruction allows a newcomer to feel welcomed and at ease when learning new techniques and being exposed to a whole new array of material, such as music. I was very new to music theory- but quickly picked it up through her teaching, and never feared asking questions. Deanna is considerate, patient, and observant. I have gained knowledge in reading music and having an even greater stage presence. I loved working with Deanna and the cast, and will always use the experience as a reference for future experiences. I’d recommend Deanna to other vocalists who want to use their voice as an ultimate instrument in their performances.
I booked Steve and Chris (jazz duo) for the 2016 Portland Rose Festival Kick-Off Party that is held annually for Festival sponsors, partners and friends. I cannot speak highly enough of these two--not only were they an absolute pleasure to work with in getting them booked for the party, but they were a huge talking point at the party itself! They were such a huge hit. Every party attendee I talked to just raved about the outstanding music they were hearing--everybody loved the band! I would highly recommend UpFront for any occasion that is need of some seriously amazing tuneage!
Greta is a wonderful teacher. First off, let's talk about her music skills and music experience and her people skills: She excels in all areas. Next, from the perspective of my own lesson-to-lesson experiences: I look forward to each sessions and am inspired by her and what I am learning. What more can you ask?
Very creative and thoughtful. He has a wide range of music knowledge that will help any artist. Would recommend.
Hans & The Wanted were everything we wished for and MORE! They were not only professional, they were the hit of our wedding. They have a large repertoire of music and really made our night so special. They were affordable and so worth every penny. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to have a blast at their event!
Brian is a highly professional, extremely likeable, reliable and talented pianist. I have hired him on many occasions. I would not hesitate to recommend his services.
Helen is an amazing teacher. She has so much knowledge and passion for music, that it transferred onto me and made me want to practice every day. She is fun, high energy, and I would really recommend her as a teacher!
I used to work alongside Heidi at a dance and music education studio. She teaches with knowledge, professionalism, and enthusiasm. Heidi has a real passion for music and theater, and works hard to share and express that passion with her students. Not only is she able to share her expertise in music theory and performance, but she does so in a fun, innovative way. I have seen first-hand how beloved she is by her students and their parents!
Shlomo is a wonderful piano teacher! Our son has been taking lessons from him for 3 years now and we are more than satisfied. He has a great balance of being encouraging, while also challenging. He is very creative and comes up with great ideas to keep music lessons engaging. We strongly recommend him as a teacher.
My parents, their guests, and our family enjoyed the music Dee provided for their party SO MUCH! It’s a week later and people at the Bonaventure are still talking about it – particularly how wonderful the music was. Dee brought back many special memories for the whole group with excellent song selections and beautiful singing. I am very pleased Dee was able to find music for my parents’ favorite songs – it added a personal note and really touched their hearts. The extra effort he went to in finding the music and rehearsing the special songs was really appreciated! I also admire how prepared and organized Dee was with his equipment – It was a quick set up and his attention to safety and access were terrific. It was a very happy occasion for all of us. Dee really added to its specialness.
Pressure Point Band was a true highlight for our daughters wedding. So many guests complimented us on hiring a live band for the party. Even the other vendors were impressed and delighted with the music. We would do it again in a heartbeat. Just need another wedding in the family :)
The shows are so exciting to watch and makes for a great night out! The musical talent is beyond fantastic!
Sarah Clarke is one of the finest performers I have worked with in my 8 years as a professional musician. She brings incredible energy to every performance or rehearsal and I have never heard her have an "off" day. She blows me away every time we play together and inspires me to play at my highest level. On top of all this, she is one of the most sincere and caring people I know.
Loved that I was able to choose the music. DJ Mark was awesome! He made the event flow and made sure everyone had fun. Great memories!
I can teach skills for guitar and bass that will allow one to play music, bridging many genres. I can help people learn songs but specialize in teaching improvisational/computational skills.
