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 Greek was an excellent wedding dj. I found him last minute and everything worked flawlessly. have never hired a dj before but using Thumbtack saved our wedding day. Phil has an amazing music library and was able to find all of our songs. He was very flexible with schedule and kept to his word and more than delivered.
Alisdair is currently providing music consulting for our band, Dreadlight. We we're very impressed initially by how excited he was to work with us and how even at the first phone call, really understood our sound and showed a genuine interest in our musical path. By the first meeting, he had studied nearly every aspect of our work and provided clear and helpful feedback on our current songs. He gave us new and enlightening insight on our instrumentation, vocals, lyrics, and overall sound in an impressively organized and detailed way that spoke to us and strengthened our vision as artists. He told us our strengths and weaknesses honestly and helped us identify key elements in our work that define us. Overall, working with Alisdair has been an enlightening, inspiring experience that has even further strengthened our passion for music. We look forward to continue working with him and growing not just as artists, but human beings as well.
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
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.
We could not have been happier with this service !! The Dj's showed up on time, set up quickly and had music playing before guest arrived. The timeline of our event got all mixed up and they accommodated every bit of it ! It was everything we could have hoped for and more !! Thank you Paige and Katrina for Being So Fantastic !!
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!
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?
I was thrown into the dueling piano circuit after learning three songs from the entertainment director who then disappeared. Shannon took it upon himself to not only teach me essential songs that would entertain a crowd but show me the core of theory and how to apply it on the gig. Almost five years later, I can honestly say that if it wasn't for his instruction and instilling not just the theory of music, but the mindset of a live performer, I would not have made it in the industry or be half the musician I am today.
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!
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!
He was my first guitar teacher. I studied with him for 4 years and he tought me everything that I needed to go to the Franz Liszt Music Academy. Studying with him is a very good experience. He's friendly and open minded.
Darrin played for a family memorial yesterday and did a fantastic and tasteful job. We had many people comment how exceptional the pianist was and we'd hire him in the future for any of our family or companu needs. We recommend Darrin wholeheartedly for any occasion!
I hired Scott to DJ my son's graduation party - he did a fantastic job and everyone was thrilled with his music selection. Scott was early to set up - had all his equipment working before the event started and was ready to rock the house! I will definitely hire Scott for my next party!!
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!
These guys are great...great music, easy to work with, responsive and fun all at a very reasonable rate...worth every penny. Made our event memorable. Thanks
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 :)
I've been taking lessons with Justin for nearly two years. I am a retired USPS employee and throughout my life I have always wanted to learn about music theory, how to read music etc. Yet, I lacked the confidence necessary to believe I was capable. With Justin 's instruction, I am now reading music and making progress in saxophone play. Not only is he knowledgeable in music theory, he is very patient in his teaching methods. Anyone who uses Justin 's service will not be disappointed.
Marcy has been a phenomenal teacher. I am an adult learner just starting on the piano and have been taking lessons from her for 6 months now. Marcy is very patient makes you feel very comfortable about being a beginner. She keeps the lessons interesting, engaging and relevant to your aspirations. She is very knowledgeable about music and about teaching piano. She includes as little or as much music theory as you want. Give her a call. You won't be disappointed. Highly recommended!!
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!
