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!
Amazing musician. We will hire agin for sure.
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!
Ilana is my go-to violinist. A brilliant musician who is a joy to work with. She gives 1000% always. Suellen Primost, Manager of The Espiritu Ensembles
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.
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.
I had a great experience working with Rob for my wedding. He was extremely helpful and open to learning new songs that I requested. Also, a great musician.
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.
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.
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!
Matt is an incredible musician and teacher, and a wonderful person to know. He was able to meet me where I was at (some experience playing guitar but no formal training), assess what I wanted out of my lessons, and help me reach those goals in a way that was both fun and rigorous. I can't recommend him enough!
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.
Jeremy is an incredibly talented musician AND teacher. He is patient, engaged, and his passion for sharing music shines through and makes me more inspired to learn!
Great instruction from a Grammy winning musician!
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.
He's my cello teacher. I'm a beginner at cello but have extensive music training and experience. Joseph is a very skilled cellist. He's classically trained but is proficient at a variety of styles including hip-hop, jazz, etc. His teaching style (for me at least) encourages breaking down the parts of playing to focus on specific techniques, often assigning exercises that require patience but can push me to the next level. He has good feedback for me and lets my interests drive the program. When I had minor complaints about the workload, he took the feedback well and quickly enacted adjustments. His schedule is a little chaotic during the summer since he's a working musician but he's always punctual and communicates (mostly through texts) responsively.
Professional, talented musicians. A pleasure to deal with. They get it.

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.
i am a solo artist i play numerous instruments and can give lessons to all interested
