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 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 had the pleasure of working with Astrik as my piano instructor and coach. I played the piano for a long time before starting graduate school. After my practice had lapsed for more than a decade, I decided to get back, regain and refine my technique, and improve certain things that weren't as good as I wanted them to be. Astrik patiently works with me and recommends pieces and exercises that would help me improve my technique. I admire Astrik's open minded approach to music making as she is eager to hear my opinion and interpretation of the music I am working on. Then, together we try different approaches, discuss them, and decide how to move forward. This way, music evolves from one session to the other, it matures, and it becomes a refined and meaningful piece of work in the end. She is a knowledgeable musician, an avid pianist, a patient teacher, and a courteous and wonderful person.

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!

Tim played a solo set for my girlfriend and I on Valentine's Day. He was very accommodating and even went the extra mile to make sure our night was perfect. The music was perfect and Tim was extremely talented. I would highly recommend him and his band any time!

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.

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.

Joe and J Silverheels were an awesome cover band! They tailored my wish list as requested and all four musicians had amazing talent. The energy was perfect as they engaged the audience throughout the performance. It was an intimate urban outdoor setting, they were able to adjust the sound level accordingly and brought some cool lighting to spice things up just that much more. The dance floor opened up quickly and it was a great synergy. I would not hesitate to recommend this band; especially if you want to mix in some quality jazz with a wide selection of rock and roll. Last but not least, they play a mean harmonica plus tenor and alto saxophones to boot!!

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!

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!

I've been relying on Peter for entertaining my guests and colleagues for close to 3 years. He is not only a devastatingly brilliant singer and musician but he also is incredibly funny and keeps the audience entertained throughout his entire performance. I can't recommend him enough. If you are considering him for an event, you should book him soon because it won't be long before he'll be out of the price range for most.

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.
