Despite a somewhat disappointing first free lesson - the instructor didn't realize I was coming and was underprepared - Skiles went out of his way to make up for it. He sent me a personalized message apologizing for the miscommunication and offered to give me another free lesson. I decided to give it another chance, and boy was it worth it. Skiles spent an entire hour teaching me fundamentals and sent me off with a bunch of practice exercises to help improve my finger coordination, strumming, and sense of tempo. I highly recommend taking lessons with him if you're looking to bring your guitar skills to the next level!

I had my first lesson today and have never had any experience in music theory or the piano. Not only did I learn about the instrument itself, but I also learned how to read some notes and play two songs in just one lesson! I highly recommend!!!

Richie Kaye was fabulous. He and his team of musicians gave my guests far more than we expected. They played exactly the music I requested and put on a wonderful education musical program. Richie went over and beyond the call of duty to deliver a extraordinary evening for us. Thumbtack, thank you so much for putting me in touch with this talented musician(s).

The music Richie Kaye and his trio provided was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed the music they played, along with their consideration in making our 50th anniversary very special. They are each excellent musicians and Richie has a wonderful voice. Thank you for all the memories. Curtis and Kelly Kayem

We had a great experience with Richie. We hired him as part of a trio for a 550-person networking event at a hotel. They're really on top of things - were on time with set up and were the last vendors out the door. Communicated really well and people loved the music.

I've been working with Ray for over a year and have been greatly impacted by him as a person and as a musician. He is genuinely caring about all areas of someone's life and offers help in any way possible. He is one of the most gifted musicians I've ever been around and knows his instrument completely. He is very easy to work with and brings out the best in everyone. I highly recommend him for both teaching and performing!

Rey has a natural ability with the keyboards. Rey and I worked on some music together and he is extraordinarily talented and a gifted musician. If you have the privilege to work/play or hire him it's a gift. Thank you Rey

We found Amy through a mutual friend and were so grateful to find her! My son started guitar lessons with Amy in 6th grade and took lessons for about 2years. He went on to play jazz guitar at HSPVA. We credit Amy for giving him that first guitar foundation he needed. Amy has a great talent to match the student with musical interests so that playing was fun, never a chore. She fostered collaboration among her students, giving my son his first chance at playing in a "rock band". Her recitals are fun and more like talent shows; with vocals, piano, guitar, and student bands. Enjoy and learn!

My children have been students of Amy's for more than 8 years. She met each child where they were in their musical development, encouraged their creativity and nurtured their love for music. All three of my children flourished under Amy's guidance - including one that is now a professional musician.

Amy is an extraordinary musician, and a kind, patient soul. She is a great person to help nurture a love of music in children.

Jeff has been giving my 3 kids music lessons for the last 5 years. My 18 year old became an accomplished drummer under Jeff's instruction. Because of his varied talents, Jeff has been able to accommodate my 13 year old's wandering interests.(so far we've covered the bass, guitar and drums ;-) 0 My daughter, who is 9 has been taking lessons from Jeff since she was 6 and I'm always amazed by what she plays at home. Jeff is great with kids and adults alike and I would highly recommend him to anyone with a desire to learn an instrument!

Jeff is a great instructor and is very patient!! Which is exactly what I needed! He knows his music and he takes his time teaching you the basics that you need for a good solid music foundation. I did not just want to learn to "play" the bass guitar, I wanted to understand the instrument and the music. Jeff is teaching me just that!! Thanks Jeff for being such an awesome person and teacher!!!

These guys were AWESOME! They played for my husbands 40th Birthday Party and were the hit of the party! They were fun and easy going and worked with us completely in terms of when and what music we wanted played. I would recommend them 10 times out of 10 and will definitely use them again if the need arises. LOS VERTIGOS IS A MUST HIRE!!

Wow! We can't recommend Los Vertigos more! It was really hard for me to find a local band that would play quality Top 40 cover songs and they met more than our expectations. I really like that they were trustworthy and I didn't have to manage them leading up to the event. They stayed on top of me!

My daughter has been taking lessons from Terana Taylor for almost five years now. Mrs. Taylor is a professional with many years of experience, who comes from a rich cultural and musical background. She is very knowledgeable, passionate, and devoted. She is direct, yet very patient. The most challenging part has been getting my daughter to practice. And what I personally love most about Mrs. Taylor is the simple fact that she never gives up. It’s been a long journey and Mrs. Taylor has helped my daughter through various practice methods for her success. My daughter plays well beyond her age and gets compliments all the time.

Terana is such a talented musician, with many years of experience in national and international venues, that it makes her be the perfect piano teacher. In addition, she loves teaching, particularly children, and she is very patient. Her students love her, because she genuinely cares for them, and she inspires them to be better. There could not possibly be a more accomplished individual, playing and teaching piano, and I highly recommend her to everybody who desires to learn piano.

Isaac Satterwhite and Song Dawgz Productions are about as professional as you get! If you are looking for a great show with professional artists and musicians look no further. You are going to get a degree of talent that in a year or a few months or perhaps next week won't be available. Why?!! Because they will be out on the road bringing their music to the world! Sign 'em up now before you are left at home moaning, "I could of had them performing for me!" Get ready to jump on the Isaac Satterwhite, Song Dawgz Productions bandwagon. They really do have a heart as big as Texas!

We asked Eugene to help us at two separate art receptions on a single day. The first one was in a large room where we had a grand piano available for him to play. He did a great job for us and he was flexible and versatile with us when we asked him to spend part of his set accompanying a violinist whom he had never met. He did a great job both as a duet and as a single, and he added a lot of class to our event. Later in the evening, we had two additional art receptions and Eugene played for one of those. He recruited a saxophone player to join him with this later gig and they had a terrific sound - just what we needed. I have always been pleased with Eugene's work. He helps make our events vibrant. I recommend him to you without reservation.

Mike is an amazing instructor!!! His skills and aptitude are very polished and strong. As a voice coach he can actually sing how he teaches. His piano skills are on point his grand piano sounds outstanding. Mike plays pop music to Mozart and he actually plays piano and sings Italian opera at the same time which lends itself a much richer learning and real world experience. If your learning voice or piano or both from Mike you stand to acquire most of the skills necessary that create an accomplished musician and successful performer!!! Don't miss out Houston you have an amazing instructor in your own backyard....

Clara is awesome! She tutored me over the summer before I began my freshman year at Berklee College of Music, and helped prepare me for the Entering Student Proficiency Assessment. She has excellent jazz theory knowledge and solfege skills, and as a Berklee alum, she was able to help me prepare for college-level work. With her tutoring, I was able to test into Ear Training 3 and Harmony 2X (an intensive course), when I previously had only had limited knowledge of jazz theory. All the work Clara assigned was very helpful - even after 2 semesters at Berklee, I still use some of the methods she taught me! Clara is great if you want a lot of personal focus, flexible class times, and a nurturing learning environment. She is very professional and very patient, which makes her a great teacher. Her extensive knowledge makes her suitable for any music tutoring you might need. I highly recommend Clara!

Peggy is simply the BEST! I had never touched a hammer dulcimer until about two years ago when one was played at our church. I fell in love with the sound and wanted to learn the instrument. Every call I made referred me back to Peggy Carter and am I glad they did! I will never be a concert player but my dulcimer and me spend many happy hours together because of the lessons I've taken from Peggy. She is SO amazing and so encouraging. She plays ALL kinds of music and makes any event a hit. Her personality and her sweet voice, when added to her playing, and her unique costumes is beyond wonderful. My husband absolutely LOVES her hats! She is an amazing musician!
