Clifford Lamb Music

Verified review

Clifford Lamb is a knowledgeable and talented piano teacher. He is a very patient and knows how to communicate musical concepts to both adults like me and to my teenage sons -- we're all intermediate players. Clifford's teaching methods incorporate a nice balance of music theory and practical technique. Clifford is a working musician and wants his students to learn theory so they begin to "think" like musicians so they can play in any key and not be slaves to a particular arrangement in a particular key. Highly recommended for both adults and teenagers.

Kelly played for my mom's memorial, including accompanying a vocalist. He made extra time for a rehearsal, was punctual, helpful, and friendly. All that and a fantastic pianist able to play anything. I give him my highest recommendation!

I had an excellent experience with Marla. I was nervous about an upcoming solo performance and hadn't sung publically in awhile. Marla quickly measured my ability and where I needed assistance and gave straight forward and incredibly helpful training and guidance. She certainly knows her stuff and is direct but friendly. I would highly recommend Marla for any voice lesson needs. Thanks Marla!

I have nothing but positive things to say about both Yaelisa and Jason and my experience with Caminos Flamencos. I have been taking flamenco guitar lessons with Jason for a bit over a year now. He is a master musician and his command of rhythm, technique, theory and harmony are second to none. Seriously, YouTube him and see for yourself! And just as important, he is a fantastic teacher. He really knows how to help you grow as a musician and reach your potential, and he cares about his students, so he's actually pushing you for your own good. Every session is a blast, always inspiring and I always come back improved from last time. I have also been accompanying some of Yaelisa's beginner / intermediate classes as a guitarist. The same values mentioned above for Jason apply to her as well (birds of a feather flock together!). She has amazing compás, and provides an incredibly solid foundation for her students, and for me, as a guitarist. She really cares about her students and it's been great to see students progress each week. I know my rhythm and ability to accompany has improved leaps and bounds thanks to her. I am getting an incredible foundation. Whether you're looking to begin your flamenco journey or take it to the next level, Yaelisa and Jason are your ticket!

Lessons with Jules are really fun...he has a lot of experience working with all genres of music and a super creative teaching style.

Chris is a really good musician and teacher. Some musicians are so good they forget what it's like to 'not know'. Chris can be with you, where you're at even though he is a highly skilled player. His patience is very encouraging. It's inspiring to take lessons with him and to remember we all NEED music!

A skilled and multi-talented musician, composer, and arranger, Jeffery has collaborated with me on a number of projects including notating some of my own pieces. I was extremely happy with the quality of his work. Additionally, he was the band leader and composer-in-residence for San Francisco’s beloved Pickle Family Circus and consistently wrote music of great charm and invention. Highly recommended.

Margarita P. is a very good professional pianist and even better teacher. The experience i had while with her was excellent and she knows well how to adapt her teachings to each individual student based on their level and personal needs. Further more, she was always on time and with a positive attitude. Thumbs up. Benjamin C.L.

This teacher is so flexible and a true pro. He's helping me (56), a former professional guitarist, play guitar duets with my daughter (23) a beginning guitarist! He's teaching us both at the same time, and we're both learning new things. Truly a special experience. I highly recommend Jacob for any level player who wants to learn more about playing the guitar.

I work with Paul on a regular basis, hiring him as a bassist for live performances and studio recording. He is very skilled on his instrument, he is always willing to work on songs and is very quick to pick up new material. He brings a lot to projects by way of his knowledge of various rhythm options and is a very patient and knowledgeable teacher in this regard. His work add a lot to the music we perform together. He is very professional about the work he does too. His replies are always super prompt, which is much appreciated when it comes to organizing music related jobs.

I've been recording with Michael Peterson at Harvest Moon Studios for several years. Michael is an excellent producer and sound engineer with a high quality studio set up. Michael is great to work with - he can work with all levels of musicians which is important to me as an amateur - he is very patient while constantly encouraging me, and always has positive, creative suggestions. Examples of the results of our recording sessions can be found at mikemetzger.bandcamp.com. I look forward to recording more songs at Harvest Moon Studios.

Jan's guitar was the perfect background to our evening. His style makes it easy to socialize without having to compete with the music. His easy jazz was so nice to listen to. At one point we asked him to turn up the volume a little because once inside our venue, he played softly and we wanted to hear the beautiful music.

My husband & I hired Justin to play at our wedding ceremony in SF's Golden Gate Park. What immediately drew us to Justin was his talent of playing a wide range of music. My husband is a musician and had high standards for the guitarist we were going to choose. Justin met those standards and was very personable and professional. We were able to share our vision of the ceremony with him and he played samples for us over a meeting on Facetime, which was so easy. Justin delivered a great performance that was complimentary to our ceremony. We highly recommend Justin to anyone looking to hire a guitarist.

Tyliah Productions has provided music for Tamarii Matairea polynesian dance groups Crab feed for the past two years. Theo Tabora is a professional, always arrives early, and has also set up his sound system for our Musicians, Drummers, and singers. I also love that he has a wide range of music for all ages.
