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.

Mike was just fantastic. I was putting together a corporate event and my client needed a DJ who could play ambient music for some time, then needed a solo artist who could perform something on strings . Mike just happened to be both !! Everybody loved his performance, and so talented. Would definitely recommend for any event.

Rob is a highly professional and talented musician. He played at a fundraiser I hosted for the Leukemia and lymphoma society and everyone really enjoyed his music. He knows to adapt his DJing style to his audience and keep everyone happy and engaged. Highly recommend Rob for any type of occasion. It will be money well spent.

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.

Seth is exactly what I was looking for. My boys love music and have learned a tremendous amount from Seth, ranging from taking a guitar solo at a live gig to taking the microphone and singing with gusto. My 8 year old takes private drum lessons for less than a year, and we are impressed by how many beats he now knows. It is clear that Seth loves what he does. He is skilled at relating to children and getting them excited to play music. He is fun and light and that carries over I'm his teaching style. We couldn't be happier and highly recommend him.

•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 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.

The band did an amazing job. Our event was for 1000+ people in San Francisco. The band played from 10pm to 1am and the crowd could not have been more energized and excited. The band was extremely professional and flexible with venue and event requirements. Highly recommend them for future events!
