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!
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
Allison was such a hit! Although I personally didn't interact with her on the big day, my husband said she was very professional and has great guitar skills. My husband is a musician as well and was able to appreciate the skills needed for the songs Allison played. We spoke via phone and text prior to the ceremony and provided some general request of the genre and musicians we liked. Allison exceeded our expectations. The value for her services is a steal. Thank you Allison!
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!
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.
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.
She played for two of our kids weddings and did anoutstanding job. She not only has a great voice but is an accomplished musician able to play keyboard, guitar, or accordion. On top of this she writes music and is currently working on recording a CD of her latest material.
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 Franciscos beloved Pickle Family Circus and consistently wrote music of great charm and invention. Highly recommended.
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!
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!
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.
Hugo and his fellow musicians were a very talented and professional group. We received many compliments of people having a wonderful time listening to their lively music - they even got a few kids dancing! Would definitely hire again!
Musicians are very professional and the music is very nice.
I had the pleasure of working with Bruno as his accompanist for his final graduate recital. He was always punctual for rehearsals and very knowledgeable in guiding me through the repertoire with him. As a soloist or collaborator, he is an excellent and well-rounded musician.
Mike's band is fantastic! From start to finish, I felt I was in good hands. Mike and his band did jazz music at the brunch reception for my wedding. All the musicians are highly experienced and professional. Their music was a true highlight, setting an upbeat, jazzy ambiance for all of the guests (including myself!). They accommodated my music requests, were responsive on messages beforehand, offered a great price, and were a pleasure to work. Thank you very much to Mike and his band for making my wedding reception so special!
Professional, talented musicians. A pleasure to deal with. They get it.
