I wanted to have a live music at the milestone birthday party for my wife. Louis responded my request quickly. He explained the details of the project over the phone. He has done a great job understanding and providing the music I was looking for. He send a detailed contract quickly. Two musicians showed up at the party ahead of time to set up.. They were very professional and pleasant people. The quality of music they played was amazing. Everyone at the party was very impressed with their performance. I was extremely happy with the project. I will definitely reach out to Louis for the next party.
Matt provided music at my wife's 50th birthday party. He was fantastic! Arrived on time, played everything we asked for, and performed like a total pro. Familiar with both new and old songs. Would recommend him to anyone looking for great live music to accompany your event!
I called it "God's perfect timing! Here's our story...Our family, recently bowed our heads, as our 97 year old father, united with his family in Heaven. We were blessed to enjoy every single minute we spent together. God bless my dad, "Babe's" soul. I wanted to honor my dad, by having live music playing at his service, as my dad loved music... he had 3,001, 33 1/3 records. All his friends and family gathered to celebrate his adventurous life. Scott Samuels promptly contacted me after I left a message requesting a vocalist/guitarist! His professionalism is "above" all others. I have EVER met. The rest, is a moment in time, my memories will cherish for a lifetime. Thank you for creating this site for the world to utilize. Scott, you're a fantastic performer/true humanitarian. I could go on and on, but those memories are mine. Betsy, Babes baby "DAURTER" as dad would say!
Hadi Sumoro is an excellent teacher, and an even better player. As a teacher, he's patient, knowledgable, and provides excellent advice that helps you develop your skills. And as a player, he is as good as it gets. He can play just about anything. Best was that he takes the time to speak with you and ask what kind of atmosphere you want to create with music, and then does exactly what was asked.
We rented a bounce house from People's Choice. Maria dropped it off the day ahead and picked it up the day after the party. It was wonderful to have the extra time! Maria is very friendly and professional. We were concerned about the weather. She said it was no problem to cancel if we had to. Great business sense!
I have known Fran as a close friend and worked with her on stage for quite a few years. She has a lifetime of experience performing in front of crowds, and it shows. She has a deep love of music, a strong, soulful voice, and a friendly and fun stage presence. She's a joy to work with and everyone loves when she comes to sing!
I requested a violinist to play two songs graveside at my father's funeral. It was very important to me that everything went smoothly, and the violinist sent by Elegance Quartet was exemplary. She was there and set up and ready to go when we arrived graveside. Her renditions of the selected songs were perfect - absolutely right tone and mood struck. I even slightly switched up the start time of the second song on the fly and she didn't miss a beat and even, if I am not mistaken, played a few extra verses to fill the time appropriately, which was most appreciated! It was a small, private family funeral, but everyone in attendance agreed that the music was a perfect tribute to my father. Many thanks to the violinist (I was distracted with so much else that I forget her name.. my apologies, but she was really phenomenal) and to Elegance Quartet!
I've been playing music for 13 years, and Jordyn is hands down the best voice teacher I've ever hand.
Katie is my daughter's favorite teacher. I've never seen my child come back unhappy from one of her lessons. She is always encouraging, has the most positive teaching philosophy, and is always encouraging my daughter to take risks and perform. With Katie's support and guidance, my daughter has participated in several vocal competitions, and is blossoming into a beautiful singer. With love, Katie was able to open up my child's desire to learn and take the extra step to excel.
Testimonial for David Joel, Guitar Instructor: My name is Ken and I have been playing guitar for 43 years since the age of 12. I took lessons for about 2 years at the very beginning. I never learned how to read music in the traditional sense, just tab. I have played in classic rock bands over the years. Several years ago I reached a point in my playing that I felt I could not get any better and was playing the same music, leads over and over again. I was convinced that all I could learn was what I could hear or was shown by other musicians. I knew I developed bad technique habits over the years as well. I wanted to get better and began looking for an instructor on-line and found David Joel. A brief review of Davidâs web-site indicated he was well-versed in all styles on electric, acoustic and classical guitar. The backbone of Davidâs approach is based on the Berklee Series Modern Method books by William Leavitt. It requires the guitarist to read and play musicâ¦something I never did and as it turns out contributed to my âilliteracyâ or lack of language or âdataâ as David refers to music. In the 2 Â½ years that I studied with David he completely changed my technique, increased my potential to play a variety of styles and improvise and helped me to achieve many of my goals as a player. He is amazingly encouraging and very real when it comes to students of all ages. I currently enjoy playing in a number of classic rock bands and praise band at church. Thanks David!
Tammy is professional and fun! She has lots of great ideas for practice and warm ups, and she really knows her music! We try lots of genres and work on different languages. I also appreciate her flexible schedule as I am a mom of 3 and work part time.
This is one of the best bands I have heard. They have a nice variety of songs, and don't play too loud. Unlike other bands, they aim to please.
Lovely group of very talented musicians.
I don't hire bands that often but Joe made me feel that he had everything under control. He showed up earlier than we had arranged and had a big smile on his face. His music was fabulous and he brought his dad who plays the accordion for that extra special touch. The range of music was fabulous. He knew when to play what for the mood of the party. He and his partner were outstanding. I highly recommend them.
Conor is a kind man and really great cello teacher. He always listens to my questions no matter how dumb I think they are. I’m third generation musicaian so I know a great teacher when I see one, and Conor is definitely great. He’s very patient, historically informative, and his passion not just for performing but teaching as well shines through very easily. Every lesson I leave feeling even more excited about playing the cello than before which I didn’t think was possible. I take lessons with him via Skype because we live 3000 miles apart so that’s very convenient. I don’t have to lug my cello around San Francisco or even leave my bedroom. Conor is very understanding about my health problems too. I can’t recommend him highly enough! He’s definitely the best cello teacher I’ve ever had!
