Kylah offers a very comfortable environment which is important for nervous people like myself. She was able to plan out our goals, was very flexible with listening to bands I wanted to sing along with for practice, and described how the body is effected when you sing a certain way or how your voice will sound when you do certain things to your body. That extra knowledge is vital if you want to learn to stay healthy and perform strong. Overall, the lesson went very well and we plan to meet again a week from now. Thanks Kylah!
Brigid really made our graduation a spectacular experience! She was extremely professional, easy to work with, open to suggestions, and a BEAUTIFUL violinist. I have gotten the best reviews about graduation, just based on the music. We will definitely hire Bridgid again, if she'll have us, because she made the experience for our graduates.
Paula is fantastic! She is very kind, welcoming, and willing to meet you where your at. I love that she gives me a lot of input around what type of music I want to play.
I first met Deuce when he came to conduct a rehearsal at my studio. I heard the band throughout and was incredibly impressed by Deuce’s virtuoso abilities on the guitar. I was also equally impressed with the way he interacted with his band mates. He seemed very easy to work with and open to suggestions. I later had the opportunity to actually play with him in another band for a gig and everything I thought I had observed before was confirmed. If you are looking for a guitar teacher, you would be in great hands learning from Deuce.
We can only rave at how great this little band was at my daughter's wedding last May in Austin. David does a great job of communicating and was very flexible with a number of special requests which helped to make it such a great day. They came early, and stayed late, even helping us to pick up afterwards. The music is very precise and FUN!!! Steel Betty played quiet prayerful tunes during the ceremony, and gradually amped up the energy as the festivities followed. Highly recommended! Stephen N.
I took guitar lessons with Tim a couple years ago before he moved away. I knew his skill and talent from his previous work in bands and it was a no-brainer for me to go to him. His ability to assess where you are at as a student and apply the proper curriculum to help advance you in your craft is what you would expect from a quality teacher such as Tim. If you're looking to open your creativity, you can't go wrong seeking guidance with him. He's got my recommendation 🖒👍
Absolutely amazing entertainer and a pretty good singer too!
Paul taught piano, guitar, and band classes for our music school for three years before leaving for Austin. He is an excellent teacher and outstanding musician and songwriter. We recommend him highly and miss having him at our school.
Gil del Bosque is a skillful teacher and diagnostician with both feet on real-world ground. Gil is a saxophonist performing in the Austin area, which helps keep the focus on *creating the music and sound* the student is seeking. Yes the "academic" information is there too, but the focus is creating the sound and music you want to make. In the first lesson Gil pinpointed critical embouchure issues that made a remarkable change in my practice that week. In each of the next 2 lessons (I've had 3 so far) Gil has seen and corrected issues which made noticeable improvements each time for the week's practice. Quality of sound is paramount to me, and I'm hearing improvements weekly. Realistic steps forward. I'd especially like to mention how flexible and reality-based our working lessons are. There are no achievement expectations - that is, Gil listens to where you are *now* and works from there. It's irrelevant whether it took 2-3 hours of practice a day or 20 minutes every other day to get there -- you are where you are. [Put another way, no wasted time on reviewing your practice schedule; just get on with the next thing.] Assignments may not sound fun or glamorous, but they *are* effective and therefore rewarding because I'm making progress. Gil works easily with the excited kid in me who (finally) has a new tenor sax while keeping the discussion on an adult level. If you want to play music and think you're too old or it has been too long since you last took a look at notes on a staff, I say go with Gil. My last ("real") music lesson was 51 years ago, and my last music class was in 6th grade (almost 50 years ago, when we played soprano recorders for a few weeks). Even so, I'm making progress in creating good sound on my tenor sax.
Loved them! I was hesitant to use a full band or a DJ but "Chido Machine" was like both in one. He did a DJ set with live drums, it was all that we needed to have a great time with a wide variety of genres but a live music vibe!
Their music is innovative with creative themes and enchanting harmonies. It is easy to get drawn in to the songs through their stage presence and personalities. They are also very professional and follow through with what is needed to give a great performance.
I run a variety dance band called The Sophisticates based in Austin, TX. Philip and his techs from Head Water have provided consistent, professional service for every gig we've had the last two years. I have dealt with many sound technicians in my 30 years in this business, believe me when I say Philip Ramirez is a rising star in this industry!
I'm Sherah, the writer and lead singer for The Fine Souls. My smokey, jazz-inflected vocal croons against a backdrop of guitar, upright bass and jazz drum kit. I specialize in writing beautiful, danceable love songs, and I write from a wide range of Roots genres: folk, vocal and Louisiana jazz, blues, soul, pop and early R&B, so the music never gets boring or repetitious. My melodies are memorable, and the lyrics are vivid, poetic, and romantic, reflecting all the various moods of love. I've even written a song about a couple who's watching the sunset, enjoying the memories of their wedding earlier in the day! We play primarily our own love songs, but we will also learn and play up to 8 of your choice of cover songs, especially if you have particular songs in mind for the first dance, the garter and bouquet toss, or other special moments. Bonus item: For an additional fee, I will write a song for you that's based on your personal love story, and we will record it as a single to give to your guests. We'll also perform this song as the first dance! My musicians are among the very best that Austin has to offer, and we have been or are currently a part of other touring bands. We have performed at various wine bars, coffee shops and restaurants around town, as well as at the Hyatt, the Austin airport on the Ray Benson Stage, and at the Continental Club Gallery. Please visit my Facebook page Sherah & The Fine Souls to see what we're up to!
