Stumptown DJs seriously came through for our wedding. From the day we contacted them about booking our ceremony we were impressed by the prompt and easygoing communication from Matt. Before meeting, he managed to jump through all the hoops that the former musician father-of-the bride set up for him in good humor, providing insights into his style and suggestions as to what he thought would fit the occasion. He was even open and respectful of our wish to compare with other DJs first. Turns out we probably didn't need to look for anyone else. Matt met us at our wedding venue way ahead of time and sealed the deal when he was able to really help us figure out the flow of events and the music to go with. Seeing as we hadn't exactly planned a wedding before, it was immensely helpful to have the MC experience at hand before the date. With a price that was in our budget, signing Stumptown DJs on was a no-brainer. The day of, Matt set up quickly and discreetly amid the flurry of mothers and aunts and when the reception started, it was hard to ask for a better DJ. Songs flowed smoothly, and as an MC, Matt kept everyone on track. Even to the point of running across the venue to fetch the groom from the bar and away from uncles and grandfathers. People stayed dancing to the very last in no small part to the good mix and the professional MC. From planning to party, Stumptown DJs rocked it.
Great at guiding you through your journey on becoming a better vocalist. Glad I took lessons with him and I'm glad I will be continuing lessons with him.
Phil Greek is a very talented Musician/Entertainer. We really enjoyed him at The Barrington Employee Christmas Party.
Just like the five stars indicate - "outstanding"! Seriously, Alisdair is a complete package. When you enlist him for your project, at first you may be looking for a producer or vocal engineer, songwriter, guitarist, or teacher, but once you work with him, he's so darn likable and enjoyable to work with that you may end up having him be all of the above! Alisdair is extremely accommodating. He will either come to you or open up his home studio for sessions. He's a seasoned musician with a keen ear. So, from my experience he's exuded the capabilities of a producer, songwriter, career coach, vocalist, teacher (music theory and vocals), and confidante. As of late, we've been putting a primary focus on building my vocal ability. He's patient and doesn't give off an ounce of negative judgement, so there's no need to fret over making mistakes. Very adaptable to the learning style of his clients, and displays a great ability at communicating a desired result with an action plan of how you're going to get there - it gives you even more confidence. His directions and method for explaining music makes sense, and he does it with the intention so that you REALLY understand the music and the concepts. At the end of our first vocal lesson, he had me record the vocal exercises we worked on with his production gear (he goes to great lengths to provide quality, so his software and set up are up to date), all personalized for my own voice so I could plug it onto my iPod and practice at home or before a performance. I have never been mentored by someone who's so delicate and concise in how they personalize their interaction and services. I'm blown away nearly every session at the new traits that come out of this guy. All in all, what I can say is: If you're looking for someone who can record you, produce your track, teach you how to work on your craft, and some life lessons to boot ... it's really all in one place with him, and his rates are very economical. We've been working together for the past 4 and a half months, so all I can say is "This is only the beginning". :0)
So happy with these lessons! Kris is a very talented musician and teacher, and I'm very glad I selected him from Thumbtack. I'm just a beginner and I can't believe how much I have learned. Kris is very patient and always accommodating in regards to scheduling. I would definitely recommend Kris to others looking for a piano instructor.
My wife and I have been taking music lessons with Kyle for over a year. He is a very versatile musician being proficient on the piano, guitar and vocals. Because of this he is able explain many different aspects of music. He is also extremely patient. Kyle is the best.
Shannon is a gifted musician and teacher. What ever your level he can teach you to play. Just as important as his talent is his patience.
UpFront Band added their musical talent to our mother's 100th Birthday Celebration—making it very special evening. Email communications were always prompt and helpful and most importantly UpFront has a wide repertoire of songs for us to enjoy and dance the night away. Thank you again for helping us create a memorable "Celebration A Century in the Making".
Attila is an experienced and trained musician, and his teaching of the guitar is interesting. He brings standard techniques at the beginning and branches out using various interests and goals that I have set coming into the lessons. Due to his teaching, a short-range goal has grown into a deeper satisfaction for continuing to pursue the guitar at a higher level. I highly recommend Attila to every level of guitar player.
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.
Grace is an outstanding music teacher. My daughter was so excited to try Violin, and Grace was the perfect teacher for her. Grace was extra patient with my daughter, who is blind in one eye, and went out of her way to make my daughter feel comfortable and empowered her to believe she could play violin. She adjusted her lessons accordingly and found perfect ways to communicate complex music and violin lessons to a 7 year old. I highly recommend Grace to anyone looking to expand their musical talents. She is a very talented musician, super smart and an wonderful teacher.
Pressure Point was an amazing band! They were professional, talented musicians and kept the party going all night. Many of our guests commented that they were the best wedding band they have heard and enjoyed dancing to all the music they played. We would highly recommend Pressure Point Band for any event.
My Daughter went from never playing an instrument to being proficient on her trumpet in 8 months. Her band teacher is so impressed. Much of her understanding of music comes from her voice and trumpet lessons with Ms. Valardi. She is branching out into piano this summer and has even attempted to write her own solo. A music teacher that understands the excitement of a student and balances that with foundation is a wonderful thing to find. Ms Valardi is just that.
Ky Burt taught my kids ukulele and they loved it! He brought a vareity of instruments that allowed them to explore different sounds. The entire lesson was filled with laughter, singing, and two very happy girls. As a professional musician he was able to quickly and competently adapt to the needs of young kids (ages 3 & 5) and open a whole new world of self expression for them. I plan on having Ky Burt back to continue lessons with my kids once he is back in Colorado on tour.
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.
My husband and I hired Ryan to perform at our daughters wedding reception this past fall. We first heard Ryan perform at the Portland Airport while waiting for our plane, and were immediately attracted to his beautiful music. We approached him and he was gracious enough to take the time to talk with us and answer all our questions/concerns (and gave us a free CD so we could listen to his music in-depth). We were sold!! Ryan is a very gifted and talented artist. His repertoire is extensive and varied and includes many the best known classical pieces, as well as some of his own beautiful compositions. Please consider hiring Ryan Walsh for your future events .we are so glad we did! Carrie M.
Justin is a great musician and performer, he really gets the crowd going and involved.
