My daughter has learned so much from Will! I appreciate his willingness to go above and beyond for my child. I would definitely recommend Will for music lessons, especially for learning instruments.
Very professional & great singer!
For the last year, Kelvin has been coming to our house each week to teach my 6-year-old daughter, Nora, and me (41 yrs old) how to play our new piano. We were both new to reading music and playing an instrument when we started. Kelvin is well known in the musical community in Santa Fe and the person who sold us our piano assured us that we had made an excellent choice of teacher (we had found Kelvin independently). Kelvin has a patient style and a good sense of humor. His approach was obviously different for me and for Nora, and he explained that adults tend to enjoy learning to play songs as soon as possible and also like variations on a given song, to keep things interesting, while kids tend to progress best by learning scales and patterns. Within the first 2 weeks, I was playing a dozen familiar tunes with confidence and after a few months the language of the music was starting to make sense to me. The weekly lessons have been productive and we increased our time from 30 minutes each to 45 minutes each for the last two months, as both Nora and I were enjoying our increased skills and wanted more lessons. Kelvin has a speech impediment which causes him to stutter. Do not let this be any kind of hindrance to considering him as a teacher. Indeed, this has allowed our daughter the opportunity to learn on 2 levels at once from Kelvin as she absorbed the music lessons while learning to be patient and appreciating that not all people talk the same way. Kelvin has been most patient and supportive of Nora and her sometimes shifting interest. For several lessons in a row, rather than just staying on book, Kelvin helped Nora to discover how to find the notes for a song that she had in her head that she had heard on the radio. Then he would teach her a variation or a fun ending, and she would get all excited and show to her friends during the week that she could play radio songs. Ill admit that I have not made much time for practice during the week and often find myself cramming during the 5-10 minutes before Kelvin arrives. Despite not committing myself more fully to learning on my own, I have progressed steadily in my ability to handle more complicated music and am nearing the end of my first music lesson book (which Kelvin brought at the first lesson for us both). I wholeheartedly recommend Kelvin as a Piano teacher.
Mr. Bos was a great piano teacher. I remember waiting in turn for my three siblings to take their lessons and when it was my turn, he was just as patient and helpful with me as he was with them. We went through different piano books, such as Piano Performance and Piano Theory, so as to be well rounded and be able to perform pieces as well as be able to scale octaves and have good technique. I am sure that he would be a great teacher to anyone of any age, and would highly recommend him. -Olivia
Great band with a wide variety of songs. Absolute general audience band!
This past Oct my husband and I exchanged our wedding vows. It was to be the BEST day of our lives and after searching for several months to no avail, we were referred to Greg Penner for our sound system needs. Our friends had hired him to perform a party several months earlier and were very pleased with his services so my husband and I met with him and found him to be very professional. He arrived early and had the sound system set up and working properly within a very short time. Wireless microphones, amplifiers and a whole lot of cords were concealed and properly used. Mr Penner did a superior job in handling our requests and was professional throughout our special day. My husband and I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Penner for all your musical needs.
Ms Kim does a fabulous job teaching piano to my girls. She is aware of the type of music each girl enjoys and is wonderful at picking music to suit these preferences. Not only are they learning to play piano, my girls are developing a love for music along with an ability they can take with them throughout life.
I have been following Freequency for about 4 or 5 years now and they have yet to disapoint. I recently hired them to play at my 50th Birthday Party on the Patio at Chesapeak's Restaurant in Knoxville, TN and they were amazing. I had approximately 50 guests and all I kept hearing throughout the event was "Where did you find these guys?" They are the perfect group for a social event. Just the right mix of music. Exellent guitar playing and excellent vocals. Soft enough where you can socialize but also lively enough to dance to as well. Me and my guests had an incredably good time at this event and I highly recomend Freequency for your entertainment at your next social event. Definately big time tallent. Although, for selfish reasons, I kind of hope they don't ever make the big time so I can keep them here all to myself! Freequecy is truly THAT DAMN GOOD! Best party ever!
Dave Maggard makes working with Sound Biscuit on projects, from live shows to recording & videography, well--comfortable. He seems happy to meet artists in their comfort zone while still pushing just enough to get their best. You won't regret choosing Sound Biscuit!

Diane has been teaching my 4 & 5 year olds piano for over a year now. I'm absolutely amazed at what she can do with them at this age!
Love this band! We hired the Cosby Creek Band for our Wedding Reception (by the recommendation of friends) not only did they do an AWESOME job by keeping our guests entertained and dancing all night , they created the TIMELINE and coordinated each song with the flow of the evening. Thanks for making our Wedding Special and for the "Surprise Video!" The captured moments and footage are priceless.....
We contacted Matt to create a music mix to accompany the opening presentation for a large corporate meeting. He was clear in his directive, quick to respond, and kept communication lines open at all times. He was able to make technical and musical recommendations, as well as last-minute adjustments, in order to provide the best final product. We applaud his strong work ethic and easy-to-work-with personality and hope to utilize his skills for future projects.
