Clifford Lamb Music

David O.
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!

Where would I be now if it wasn't for Donna Stoering? In less than two years, when I was 12 years old, she had me performing my first solo piano recital: rhapsody in blue, Chopin's Scherzo B flat minor, a Beethoven Piano Concerto, Liszt's Valse Oubliee, and a Bach Prelude and Fugue. That's one program. And you know why I learned it all so fast? Because Donna made it FUN to learn. She taught me the most important thing about music---MAKING MUSIC. We had laugh attacks at my piano lesson, made up wonderful stories about the pieces I was playing, and learned so much furious technique-I didn't even realize at the time how hard what I was doing was. With Donna, fear was never in my vocabulary when it came to the piano. She is the best. I enjoy music as a profession to this day and I owe much of my amazing career to those 2 years I was so lucky to have with Donna as my teacher.

I had the opportunity to have this awesome band play at my house party! They were really talented and played a really good mix of jazz and latin which was perfect for our guests. You won't be sorry if you hire this band:)

Miles is a great teacher and musician. His patient work with me has helped my playing immensely, and he's always been incredibly patient and supportive. He's encouraged me to become a better piano player and to start writing songs of my own!

Deborah is a truly special instructor. I came open to learn voice and piano, and I'm getting both and more. She really honed in on the work that I need: that in my head and heart. Through music, I'm learning how to dismantle the pride and fear that clouds (or prevents) my music-making. I feel so much more it touch with my inner musician, and free to let her fly. Deborah is easygoing and thoughtful, practical and resourceful. I highly recommend her.

My tango band Trio Garufa recorded our 2012 album at Granada Studios under the supervision of Stevan Pasero. We had an excellent experience and were delighted with the quality of the results. Many factors make Granada Studios an outstanding recording facility: First, the studio equipment, room design and acoustics are top notch. It's also a very nicely-decorated space, which makes you feel comfortable and relaxed during your long recording sessions. Second, Stevan Pasero strives for nothing short of excellence: he is extremely knowledgeable, detail-oriented and uncompromising when it comes to recording quality. He spent several hours optimizing the mic placement for each of our instruments (double bass, bandoneon and guitar), and was on top of every single technical detail, allowing us to fully concentrate on the music. It does make a big difference when your recording engineer is a very experienced performing and recording musician himself: Stevan gave us very valuable feedback on our music and was extremely supportive when we had to work long ours to finish our album. He even spent an entire night working with us when we had to deliver the master mixes the next morning. Lastly, Stevan's wide knowledge of the music industry can also be of great value to those who need advice in that area. In summary, I highly recommend Granada Studios to any musician looking for top-notch professional recording quality.

•Absolutely loved the band…everything about it. You rocked the house, had people dancing the entire night, and the assortment of music was completely unreal. I walked in there, couldn’t believe people were dancing the entire night, and at the end, packed the floor again for the final songs. Your band learning the 1st dance songs was completely awesome too. True talent from every person of the band. The equipment, MC abilities, professionalism, flexibility was off the charts. Best touches – Dr. Dave getting me (the groom) to let me know about the last couple of songs, the introduction of the wedding party, and the real talent and energy that the band brought. Favorite songs – chicken dance, Shout, and everything in between. (Brian – Groom).

I have been under Nick Simmon's wing for over 13 years and have enjoyed every single second of it. He creates a relaxed, lucrative and enriching environment through his genuine compassion and dedication to his students. I am now heading off to college to pursue a musical career, largely in part to the inspiration I recieved from this brilliant musician and friend, and I could not recommend him more.

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.

I knew from hearing Martin perform many times that he is a tremendously gifted, knowledgeable, and accomplished musician. But studying with him is a special joy because he strives to make all aspects of his "total musicianship" available to his students. With his guidance, I am delving into the repertoire with new understanding of each composer's style and intention, techniques and tools, and with more feeling and excitement about being at the piano.

I hired Los Boleros for my 40th bday party and they were awesome! My whole family is in music, so we know who is good and who is not. These guys are very professional, great repertoire, great fun. I STRONGLY recommend them! I had only 5 musicians; lead singer, guitar, drums, trumpet and saxophone so they would fit in my living room. Just perfect!

Marc is an exceptionally talented musician. I have worked with Marc for a few years now, and I cannot begin to describe this man's talent and passion. He is always practicing and his stage presence is very engaging. If I am ever in the market for a solid performer, with a skill set such as his own, you can rest assured that I will be knocking on his door.

About

Guitar music can be played almost anywhere. Events and venues that may not allow regular band music can still be enriched with the sound of music. The costs associated with guitar playing are minimal and can help stretch a tight budget. I can also compose and produce recordings of songs and musical score in my computer. This can be done in high quality and at a significantly reduced price to traditional recording/producing methods.
