My 15 year old daughter has being "playing" with a guitar for a couple of years now. I wanted her to get some proper training and Steve is an inspiration for her. His love of guitar and music is infectious and he knows how to teach the technical side, without it becoming boring. I also grabbed my guitar and joined in. We have now set up a weekly schedule and I hope to be the dad of a serious rock and roll guitarist in the near future. Thanks Steve!
Sam (El Melody) has been great! Not only is he an outstanding vocal teacher but he also pushes you to get out there doing public performances and working on your music. After only 4 months with him I performed at his winter recital in front of about 100 people with a full band behind me, it was great and way more than I expected to be getting from a vocal teacher I had been with for just a few months. Sam is always pushing you to improve your singing, from fine tuning details of specific performances to overall technique, and pushing you to move forward with your own goals regarding what you want to do with music. He has a great attitude, he's fun but tough, and does a great job. In my first 4 months with him I feel like I've progressed a lot, with improved breathing technique, better overall singing ability, and increased confidence singing in front of others. It's been an awesome 4 months and I'm really looking forward to the next year working with him.
The best thing that I did for my guitar playing ability was hiring Tim. Your first mistake (should you make it) would be to not hire him. If you're looking to improve your overall skill, do yourself the favor of working with Tim. I have been working with Tim for about 2 years now and have seen drastic improvement in my ability to play. I began as a curious beginner and am now playing at a really comfortable level. To begin, Tim is really easy going and down to earth. He easily relates to anyone, which makes it easy for him to understand your desire for different styles and reasons for playing the guitar. I previously worked with someone who only wanted to teach his style of guitar, so needless to say when I met Tim I was really happy to work with someone who was interested in what I wanted to learn and why. His guitar knowledge is so profound--he's been playing for so long that he can play and teach any style of guitar. When I'd ask about jazz guitar, or rock style vs. blues he not only was able to explain the difference between them all but also could play the styles. Tim's expertise and appreciation for music allows him to be able to teach songs from an array of genres. Not only does he know how to teach them, but he also tabs everything out along with a recording of whatever song you're working on. This was very beneficial to me as I wanted to practice my solo techniques over music that he/we created. I've never created a song before working with Tim and I have to say it was really cool. Very impressive! He supplies all the needed items at his house (amp, guitars--both electric and acoustic), effects, mic--the whole 9 yards. Here are a list of the topics we have covered over the last few years. I know there are more than I'm going to list, but this is what came to mind: -Chords, chord theory, different grips/voicings, etc. -Scales, soloing, riffs -Finger picking technique -Lots of song examples working through chord progressions, melodies, solos -Tabbed out what we worked on & sent recordings to work on rhythm, etc. Again, do the right thing for both you, your wallet, and your guitar and HIRE TIM!!
Don knows his stuff, he's easy to get along with and overall a really nice guy. He has an impressive repertoire of musical skills and a lifetime of experience in music to draw from. As far as instruments he can play a little bit of everything, he can basically teach you any instrument you'd find in a regular rock band, folk, country, pop, blues etc. He's probably most proficient on the guitar and piano but he also knows quite a lot about vocals. If you struggle with theory he does a great job demystifying some of the fundamentals of music theory that are useful to beginners. Whether you're an absolute beginner or long time musician Don will be able to help you out. Highly recommend.
The Brian Farley band was great to work with. They were professional, on time, reasonably priced and played great music. They were a crowd favorite for our festival! Thank you!!
Peter is an exceptionally experienced musician with experience that not only validates his abilites but places him among the elite. Peter has worked with bands including the Who, Twisted Sister, Mick Fleetwood (Fleetwood Mac) and my personal favorite, Elton John. As a "newbie" to the field of music, I can assure you that John exhibits exceptional patience as well as the ability to make the complex seem simple. Whether new to music or an experienced professional, I highly recommend you speak to Peter before making a final decision. FIve stars!
Baltimore's Best Bluegrass band!! Fun, affordable great for any event.
What a treat! Outstanding performance by truly talented group that knows their profession. All night everyone was finger snapping, singing along and enjoying the sounds of this magnificent band! I will definitely be booking them again for our annual event next year! Please check them out. You won't be disappointed! Andre Ford Vice President Empact Ministries
The band played during the ceremony for my outdoor summer wedding in Baltimore in Aug2017. Bob and his band were very professional, easy to work with and great value for their services. Highly recommended for events large and small!
From the first gig that I worked with Jay and Trackside, they treated me as part of the group as we worked together to create video and photos worthy of a first class regional band. He and the group have always had my requirements as a priority and keep me informed about the things necessary for me to function in My role with the band. Love working with these guys. One of the best local rock bands ever!!
We had a great time when you were at Dogfish. We loved it! Funny but my friend Arlene tried to dance to "Dillon" (her quote!). I hope we get to go back there on the 11th. It was a great trip down memory lane. You guys rock! Sharon
The New Dominion Band just played at RdV Winery for my husband's 60th birthday party. Everybody loved them! Cannot say enough great things about this band!
Billy and co are top notch. I've known Mr. Martin for a long time and he's played many events at my place in a couple different bands. He's a consummate professional and a good dude. FFRD is unique because they don't really sound like any one band. They're a combination of quite a few different genres, people of all ages will get what they do and they are super tight for such a big band. Hire them.
