Lori came to our daughters Princess party and everyone was in love with her beautiful balloons and pleasant personality! All the girls wanted their princess balloons and all the moms were amazed at the wonders Lori created. I definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for a balloon artist or face painter. OH yes she dressed as a princess herself which was a nice added bonus on Lori's part. My daughter couldn't have been happier!

The short version: Ryan Reid is someone you want to learn from. Behind his warm demeanor is a fiercely thoughtful creative musician and professional instructor. The longer version: First of all Ryan is patient! Learning to play piano as an adult is quite a challenge and Ryan truly provides a friendly teaching atmosphere. He is highly skilled in his craft and is definitely someone who is passionate about sharing his knowledge with others. Ryan is very professional and punctual. He communicates effectively and is flexible when it comes to scheduling our sessions; he is also prompt in responding to questions before/after our sessions. Ryan is also extremely knowledgeable in different genres of music from classical, jazz, blues, etc. From the start Ryan asked me 101 questions to have a clear idea of what my goals and expectations were in order for him to create a personalized plan for me, he helped me explore different genres of music so that our sessions would be meaningful and productive. I am now on my 6th session and have already learned so much from Ryan - its important to note, I don't have any musical background and I'm already playing the blues, working on bass, melody and harmony and now starting to read music. Thank you Ryan for being awesome! All of this circles back to the short version: Ryan Reid is someone you want to learn from!

After taking piano lessons with Phebe, I can look back and say that my time with her was extremely valuable and beneficial. Phebe has been teaching for many years, and with her experience, she can teach like no other. She is extremely hard working, passionate, professional, and knowledgable. No matter how young or how old, Phebe can teach anyone how to play with the best technique, ear, and musical judgment. I had the most positive experience and have learned so much about playing the piano and classical music from Phebe.

Let's just say we have had Alot of piano lessons from many people who are trained,etc... This is the only teacher my son practices for every day without any encouragement from me. It's wonderful. Barry is more than a teacher, hes a great composer,pianist and inspiring artist. His students are very fortunate to be in his studio.

Over the last 10 months I have been taking weekly piano lessons at the Vanover Music Academy in Houston with Dr. Krume Andreevski. My teacher is a highly educated talented pianist with real-life teaching experience while actively involved in performing musical activities. As an adult student I enjoy learning piano in a very casual, relaxed atmosphere. However, I very much appreciate that Krume’s teaching attitude provides strong discipline and professionalism. Friendly, approachable, organized, enthusiastic and very articulate Krume cares deeply about improving his piano teaching practices. He shows great flexibility to best accommodate each student’s unique skills, abilities, goals and needs. I do my scales, arpeggios, chords, Hanons and piano course exercises but at the same time my teacher insists on me playing Schuman (for now) because the ultimate goal of learning piano is making music. With exemplary stage presence and charisma, Krume has a special gift to connecting with his audience and always gets a great emotional response from his public. Joyfully alive, skillfully delectable, honest and filled with heartfelt emotion, his piano playing is always inspiring. I strongly recommend Mr. Krume Andreevski for students of all skill levels and ages who understand that learning the piano is a serious commitment. To achieve piano playing mastery you need the best quality teaching.

    My singing improved tremendously within 3 weeks since i enrolled in her class. Morayo is an excellent and highly knowledgeable professional. She teaches singing, voice techniques, song writing etc. Interestingly, she is so calm and patient & goes at your pace. She is an established artist who has successfully recorded albums (check out "Said And Done" album on iTunes) & done background vocals for many successful award winning artists. She plays the guitar beautifully too so you can learn that from her too. (Don't say I told you). You will have much fun while learning from her. I made a great choice. You should too!

    Working with WSOH Productions on a live recording project was by far the best recording experience in all my 18 years as a recording artist. It was truly amazing how that the WSOH team of people brought their recording equipment into my home and was able to quickly transform my guest bedroom into a serious recording studio complete with wall, window and door audio treatment materials just like in a real recording studio. They recorded 8 songs using 18 – 21 tracks per song including the use of a walk-in closet as a vocal booth and for the drums, they recorded 11 sequential tracks in separate takes. The great part is that WSOH works on a project basis and not on time by the hour, so recording separate tracks in different recording takes, does not kick up the price due to time constraints. The recording was done in HD (24-bit @ 96kHz sample rate), to produce an unbelievably high quality recording in terms of clarity, punch and capture stability. After editing and mixing at the end of each recording, each song was mastered on the spot adding the extra sparkle, EQ, dynamics and stereo imaging all of which really put the icing on the cake. In considering the price, quality of equipment and the end result, I will not have to think twice about using WSOH Productions on my next recording project.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is a mariachi band?

    Mariachi bands are rooted in Mexican culture. Traditional mariachi bands consisted of two or more members playing stringed instruments, wearing regional costumes adapted from the charro (Mexican horseman or cowboy). Modern mariachi bands, which are likely what you’re looking for when searching for a mariachi band for hire, feature at least four members who play stringed instruments (violin, vihuela, bass guitar called guitarron) and one or more trumpets. The costumes have remained the same, but now trumpets are synonymous with mariachi music. Mariachi bands for hire often play a wide range of music, including styles originating from Mexico and adopted from elsewhere. These include jarabes, waltzes, serenades, corridos (Mexican ballads), ranchera, cumbia, and more. Mariachi bands for hire bring a festive and soulful element to a party, birthday, wedding, corporate affair, fundraiser or community event. UNESCO has inscribed mariachi music on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

    How much does a mariachi band cost?

    A mariachi band will bring your party or event alive with their fabulous costumes, beautiful playing and strong vocals. The cost of a mariachi band for hire will depend on how many players are in the group. Each musician in a performance group needs to be paid, so pricing is usually based on the number of mariachis (musicians), the location of the event (and travel time required), and the length of the performance. Day of the week also affects cost, as does day — Christmas, New Year’s Eve and other major holidays will cost more than regular days. The national average cost for live bands of all types ranges between $740 and $1,200. Depending on where you live and regional rates for performers, you might expect to pay between $65 and $120 per hour, per player. Mariachi groups may have 12-15 players available for performance at one time, depending on your budget. Here are some examples of how the number of players affects average cost:

    • Four mariachis: $300 per hour for weeknights, $400 per hour for weekends.
    • Five mariachis: $350 per hour for weeknights, $400-$450 per hour for weekends. Weekends may have a minimum number of hours.
    • Six mariachis: $400 per hour for weeknights, $450-$500 per hour for weekends.

    How many mariachis can a band have?

    A mariachi band for hire can have as many players as you like. Modern mariachi bands typically have a minimum of four players with the trumpet playing a vital musical role along with stringed instruments such as the violin, guitarrón (a Mexican bass guitar with a deep body), vihuela (a Spanish stringed guitar) and guitar. Strong vocals are also an important component of mariachi bands for hire, since one or more of the players will be singing during the performance. For a truly spectacular show, you can hire a mariachi band with 15 or more players. The medley of stringed instruments, multiple trumpets, soaring vocals, and even an accordion or harp is powerful and beautiful. Mariachis typically wear the traditional costume of charros — Mexican horsemen. The look is a very regal, monotone suit, often in black or white, with silver adornments and embroidery. Mariachi bands often wear sombreros as well. Traditional mariachi bands were only made up of two or more players, according to a UNESCO report celebrating the cultural heritage of the musical style. The style of music originated in the state of Jalisco. Now the style of music is symbolic of Mexico but is celebrated all over the world, and adds a fabulous vibrancy to any group’s events, parties and weddings.
