Our daughter (Kivi) started with the recorder in 4th grade, and soon graduated to clarinet. By Middle School, she was taking lessons from a classical teacher who advanced her skills markedly. Upon reaching high school, she was in demand by the jazz band - whose leader persuaded her to take up the saxophone. Kivi loved the sax, and loved jazz, but clarinet remained her first instrument. I thought of the great jazz clarinet players: Pete Fountain at the top of a substantial list. But we could find no one who could teach jazz clarinet. Finally, we attended an event at VanderCook, and one of the presenters gave us Jon's name. Kivi studied with Jon for about two years. I was disappointed with the amount of time Kivi had to spend practicing Jon's lessons - what high schooler has time for anything? Nevertheless, Kivi learned a great deal from Jon, and was the only student to ever perform a clarinet solo in our high school's jazz band history ("Jack the Bear"). Jon was unique in my experience in that he taught what Kivi wanted to learn - rather than imposing a rigid course of instruction. If you are considering private lessons that offer something both valuable and unique, please look no further than Jon Novi.
Matt is a wonderful teacher! He takes time to learn what kind of musician YOU want to be and what YOUR musical tastes are and develops your lesson plans from there. Some of the things that he has taught me have stuck with me years after his lessons. Highly recommend.
Jerry is a great musician and a wonderful person to work with. He has played for fundraising events I've run many times. He always engages highly skilled sidemen and he is expert at tailoring the music to fit the ambiance of the event. I look forward to the next time I can hear him play.
We have hired Guy as our sound man for many years at Congregation Shir Hadash. As a fellow musician, I can appreciate his commitment to quality and his remarkable attention to detail. He is reliable. He brings a high level of experience and expertise to his work. I would highly recommend him without question.
Vicki was very sweet and very professional and a superb musician. Everything we wanted.
5 stars. He has played at my establishment multiple times. Steven is a talented musician who is always on time, has a great local following - and is an all around good guy.
Vinnie is a very talented musician with a wide range of genres. He took requests and rocked them all! We got compliments all night on Vinnie's performance! He was the best part of our event! Highly recommended!!!
Pete is an awesome teacher. I was able to learn many chords within a 2 month time period. Now I regularly sing at open mic's with my guitar instead of having my friend play guitar for me. I definitely recommend Pete as a guitar teacher.
Kathryn was exactly what I envisioned when I set out to find a jazz singer for my father in law's birthday party. Her voice is seriously gorgeous and she was very easy to work with. She was flexible with me throughout our time planning the gig and was able to accommodate all of my requests. While her song list is quite vast, there were a few special tunes she specifically learned for this event and they sounded fabulous. She found the perfect accompaniment in a very talented guitar player as well. Throughout the time Kathryn performed and for hours afterwards I received compliments from other guests for finding such a talented duo. The men and women alike were very impressed with the quality of music, song selections, appearance, and demeanor of both musicians. Everyone thought the music really added something special to the party. Most importantly, my father in law was absolutely amazed with what wound up being the perfect gift for him. He was very impressed and I was so happy to see his face when Kathryn sang one of the songs she especially learned for us. He'll never forget it. I'd hire Kathryn again in a heartbeat.
Greg is the best! He is an incredibly talented musician. He is B able to adapt any piece to your abilities. He wants you to play pieces you're interested in. His encouragement was kind, but firm-- which is exactly what I needed. He held me to a high standard that I was eager to meet. He has a great sense of humor, which made lessons fun and stress free. I highly recommend Greg!
I took sax lessons from Max while he was at Oberlin. He cares about his students and their musical growth. He makes even the most tedious drills fun, especially when he plays the material along with you. He's a fantastic musician as well. I miss working with him.
Dave has been teaching my son for the past six years. My son always looks forward to his time spent with Dave. Dave is kind, patient, and fun. Dave instills a passion for music. As an educator, I believe that passion is crucial for learning. It's what makes learning so enjoyable. Not only is Dave a talented musician but an excellent teacher. In addition to his musical and teaching talents, Dave is reliable, flexible, and professional.
A great musician in fantastic performer that works well with a variety of venues, client and guests preferences.
He was very professional and a great musician. Would be great for dinner music/background music. Not as good for assisted living entertainment as this population did not "understand" his music.
Sang solo during my wedding ceremony
My son learned to play guitar there at the age of 5. He is now 12 and has continued his lessons and has formed a Rock Band where they all practice and perform through the music school. They have all learned a tremendous amount and it continues to be a wonderful experience for them.
Ethan is an extremely talented songwriter, musician, and performer. The reaction of our party guests was unanimously "he can really sing." His vast repertoire includes amazing originals, unique covers, and classic favorites. His personality exudes warmth, intelligence, wit and humor. Book this performer--everyone will love Ethan Keller!
A crooner / singer and she was great! It was for an in-home 50th wedding anniversary celebration for my bosses in-laws who are 87 and 90 and they loved it, so thank you!
The Ron Harris Music Group was terrific! Ron will create a wonderful evening of background music perfect for a party when you want your guests to socialize. Ron took care of all the details including coming out to our venue ahead of time and checking the space out! Ron and his keyboardist played pop music, jazz, oldies-a wonderful range. He also chose the right volume for the party space. The Ron Harris group are excellent musicians and really nice guys. I recommend them wholeheartedly!

I play in many events as a solo acoustic, but also can assemble and lead bands of any style and size. I'm an accomplished saxophonist as well, and have recorded and toured with many renowned artists. On the days I'm not playing or rehearsing, you'll find me in my well-equipped attic studio writing and recording original music for my band, The E-mics. I do record and produce other acts, including Dave Tamkin, Scottie Long, Holiday House, and many more.
