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.
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.
Hired Mr.Penner to instruct me on the basics of playing the guitar recently. Not only do I learn while having fun, but have made a wonderful friend in the process. The reasonably priced, great teacher's tutelage has helped me to grow in my pursuits of musical arts. And since I live on a budget this just worked for me. Just drop him a line and he will be on his way to rock out with you! He's also a great performer!
Great band with a wide variety of songs. Absolute general audience band!
Curtis taught my children piano before he left for grad school, and he did an incredible job then. He met each child's instructional needs (NOT a "one-size-fits-all" approach) and gave them a solid music theory foundation. I have full confidence in his teaching ability, and he is a remarkably talented pianist himself!
Very professional & great singer!
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.

Cosby Creek Band was awesome! They played such a variety of music we couldn't believe it. They took request and let some of us get up and sing some songs with them. We had such a good time. Definitely going to hire them again. Very fun band!
Dave recommended Griffin Bros. Music for our event and they were fabulous! A great mix of tunes on their playlist and they were friendly and personable with our group. We would definitely go through Sound Biscuit again.
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!
I have worked with Jason Lovely as a fellow DJ and professional graphic designer since 2011. He always has a clear goal and purpose, and for that, he is easy to work with. There is a clear design goal or a clear and specific type of music I should play. I recommend his professional services to anyone looking for a fun DJ or professional sound and lighting.
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!
