Amir Neubach has been teaching my son for more than 2 years, and I am amazed by the progress he made. Amir is a fantastic guitarist but more important he is a great teacher and it's a rare gift. Before Amir, We tried several teachers but nothing stuck. Amir manages to teach my son according to his needs and his unique taste in music (which is rock music and heavy metal), in a fun and relaxing atmosphere. My son is only 12 years old and he can play complicated guitar solos, fully motivated and making progress every day. Amir encourages him to develop his talent, play with friends and even start creating his own music. I would highly recommend Amir to anyone who is serious about playing guitar and loves music.
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!
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 🖒👍
I've worked with Ed on and off over the last few years. As a player, he is a total pro, able to deliver at a high level across many styles. What I really love about playing with Ed is that he is also a great person - always a positive attitude, punctual and prepared. Ed is my first call when I need a drummer, for both live and studio work. He has also given some drum lessons to my son, providing not just style and technique, but also some great philosophy and guidance about music in general.
Matt handled sound for our wedding and worked with the band we booked to make the whole thing smooth.
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!
Mr. Del Bosque was a very good teacher for the three years I had him as my private lessons teacher. He will teach you all you need to know to be a successful saxophonist. He will teach you the fundementals like scales, tonal excerises, arpeggios, etc. When I was in middle school, I made the TMEA All Region Band with his critique and help. But I feel that Mr. Del Bosque could've taught at a faster pace because the pace felt slow to me, but that's just my preference. It really depends on the person. Overall, Mr. Del Bosque was a great teacher and will be perfect for anyone who's looking to start to play the saxophone or already has been playing, but is looking for professional help.
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.
Great Band! Always fun and entertaining. Work hard and always make it special.
We had Matt as a teacher for three years, for our children. He was so talented and such a blessing. I am quit convinced that Matt would be able to successfully take on any challenge he is given.
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!
We hired the Divas and Cavaliers for our wedding in November, 2015. Johnny Bode and the band were simply outstanding. The songs were well played, the lead singer is gifted, and the guests were dancing up a storm from the very beginning until the very end of the night. I still hear from friends and family just how much they loved the band. Johnny Bode is easy to work with and clearly enjoys his work. Running up to the wedding, Johnny, my wife and I, came up with a couple of phenomenal playlists that truly incorporated his knowledge of what gets folks out on the dance floor and our taste in music. In addition, he worked with us creating a very special first dance that went off flawlessly and is now a very special and tender memory. Enjoy, you can't lose.
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!
