Apart from being enthusiastic about music and skilled at guitar playing and teaching, Mary is also kind and supportive. I ask lots of questions about guitar playing and music theory. She is patient and is able to answer all of them in a clean and concise manner. She also shares with me information from Seattle Classic Guitar Society on performances and master classes of top guitarists from time to time. I would recommend Mary to every person who wants to learn guitar, especially classical guitar seriously.
Jonny works well with my ten year old daughter and she really enjoys taking lessons with him. He is encouraging, positive and relates to her by asking which artists she likes and the songs she loves to listen to. She thinks it's pretty cool when she can play a Taylor Swift song!
Sarah introduced our children to the world of music and piano five years ago and was a steady and constant guide on their journey, providing them with exceptional technical skills while encouraging an appreciation for the art of music and what it means to be a musician. She also understands how to keep kids motivated.
Since January 2014, I have been studying guitar with David in a weekly group improvisation ensemble. We play well-known rock and blues tunes. Playing in this group under David's leadership has greatly improved my confidence and ability to play rhythm guitar, and also to improvise melodies using minor and major scales over chord changes. David provides a very supportive atmosphere for playing creatively, and every session is fun and inspiring. I always leave feeling motivated to practice during the week on my own. David is also a master of working patiently with a variety of musical skills and abilities among our group members, and helping the group listen to each other and encourage each other. I highly recommend David as a guitar teacher for both private and group study.
My daughter had guitar and vocal lessons with Kristen for 2 years. My daughter was 10 when they began, and grew immensely as an artist with the guidance Kristen provided. Kristen is an amazing teacher. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking to start playing guitar or needing voice lessons.
Our daughter has taken voice lessons with Aaron for about 3 years and really loves her time in his studio. Aaron has a wonderful ability to connect and has really helped her become the confident singer she is today. Bitterlake Studio is an extremely warm, positive, safe and inspriring environment and Aaron is the most supportive teacher. He is a very talented musician and a passionate and artistic person. His presence puts her at ease with a confidence to explore her strenghts and weaknesses. We are so grateful for Aaron making it a challenging but very fun learning experience for our daughter.
Miriam was great to work with, cooperative with our inability to pay with cash/check, and the performance was great. We appreciated the background music, but could easily see that the band would be great for a more interactive performance as well. Overall the experience was great!
The Rafael Tranquilino Band is one of the most versatile and exciting bands I have ever seen. Rafael's guitar work is inspired and he never ceases to blow me away! He also never plays a song the same way twice. You just never know what he's going to do. He is my favorite guitarist! Leah Tussing's vocals are this very cool combination of jazzy blues that brings a completely new vibe to every song she sings. Love her! They are a dynamic duo with some of the most talented rhythm sections in the PNW. I never miss seeing them when they are in Tacoma.
I was a piano student with Larry Schacher for two years. I had classical training but was interested in learning about jazz, blues, and improvisation. I was nervous to start, but Larry soon put me at ease, helping me transition to the new style I was attempting to learn. Larry teaches with patience and understanding while keeping the process entertaining and challenging.
I have had Ian Skavdahl play numerous time at my bar and he has always been an amazing artist. I love the way he blends current and vintage songs together in a fresh and funky way. I would recommend him to anyone!
Danny played for our retirement party in Bellevue Wa. He was early and began playing right away. He was Outstanding! He took very few short breaks during his sets. He played a varity of music. He played all requests! I would recommendm highly.You wont be sorry. He was very friendly with everybody at the party. I have seen many jazz artist on the smooth jazz cruises over the past six years and Danny ranks right up there with the Best of the Jazz World. In fact he is good enough to be on the ship and open for Greats like Peter White or Dave Koz in my opinion! So Try him, you will be amazed. We took a chance on him and We will book him for our next event, and I hope you will too!
Global Arts Collective is the #1 Entertainment Provider on the West Coast for any event! From Wo-Pop to Jazzy Grooves, you have come to the ONLY place to make your party the best!
Ed Mays Groove Kitchen’s music is full of jazzy delta blues, pop, rock and funk as well, for a sound that is timeless yet modern in it's own way. It’s kind of like stepping back in time, but with the keys to the Porche. This group - is undeniably charming, and undeniably entertaining. Not to mention pretty darn talented. Our guests ranged in all ages, and everyone loved Ed Mays Groove Kitchen. If you want your wedding reception, or whatever event to really "Groove", book this band! -Christy K, Seattle, WA
These guys rock. They played a party we threw to celebrate our friend's marriage. Working with Adam during the lead up to the event was seamless and easy. Adam was responsive and worked to build a set-list to what we wanted for the party. The quality of music was superb. The lead singer had a great voice, engaged the crowd, and kept the party going all night. The band was fantastic, and the lead guitarist shreds. The dance floor was never empty as the band successfully covered songs from rock n roll to pop to county to blue grass, and satisfied everyone's musical preferences. I would highly recommend this band for any event or wedding. They helped make a great night even better with their talent, skill, and energy.
At age 67, I felt I needed to hone my keyboard skills with someone who could teach me blues and/or jazz basics. My background was classical piano, taking lessons in the 1950's and 60's. I had 'graduated' from the workforce, always had a piano in my home and found Mack Grout, who was gracious enough to take on someone 40 years older than he was. He was patient, allowed me to tape our sessions, held me accountable and was a real inspiration to me. I learned a lot from Mack; he built up my confidence and made my life a lot richer with my improved knowledge and abilities. Unfortunately our lessons ended when he took a musical gig in China. A sad day for me.
I've been working with Justin since 2005 in the entertainment business as his bandleader and more recently as co-leader. In addition to providing high-energy, engaging entertainment, Justin has always proved to be professional, efficient, creative and knowledgeable about the requirements of the particular job at hand. He is an excellent communicator and creative on the both the artistic and business sides. It's always a pleasure to work with Justin.
A Northwest legend! Danny's showmanship and musicality never disssappoint! His band plays jazz,funk and blues. As a single he is the perfect addition you wedding,backyard or indoo party or event. My favorite
I am an artist/magician with a lot of experience and has an addiction to entertain. I have a passion to make the beauty in music. I also mastered my own style in dancing.
I am a photographer. I have been shooting for 3 years now. I shoot all kinds of pictures. I am also a makeup artist and esthetician.
I have battle rap knowledge -- political and some randy stuff, so get me. I'm 43 and black, and recording is something I picked up when I was 16 or 17. It's sometimes fun; so, let's make beautiful music together, and we'll see how it goes.
