Michael always goes the extra mile to help prepare my kids for auditions or to help prep for roles, often times squeezing them in at the last minute. He is such a positive role model. They have also enjoyed their involvement in the summer musical productions!Jan 22, 2015Lamb Studios's reply
Hi Denise, Its been great working with the boys through the years. I look forward to working with them again soon! Michael
I had the pleasure of meeting Michael when he worked with my son, who was auditioning for a role in A Christmas Carol at Hartford Stage. From our initial contact over the phone, I could tell he was not only professional and knowledgeable, but a genuinely nice person. My son (age 9) adored working with him and after the first session, his words to me were, "that was the coolest thing I have ever done!". Michael knows how to relate to kids. He is funny, entertaining, extremely motivating and energetic. It is obvious that he loves what he does and he is fantastic! As a teacher myself, I know that it takes a special person to teach young people well. Michael goes above and beyond... he is inspiring!Oct 16, 2015
My son has worked with Michael in many capacities since he was about 8or 9 initially in his summer projects and then voice and acting lessons. Most recently he has worked with him around preparation for college auditions. I chose to purchase a package of 6, 45 minute coachings at a time at his studio in South Windsor. There isn't any way I can give justice here to Michael and the extensive preparation my son received from him. You just need to see for yourself. Their coachings ranged from choosing appropriate songs and monologues for auditions to refining them to a level of comfort and confidence. Some schools required pre-screen video taping of his material prior to a live audition. Michael has state of the art equipment that perfected the presentation of the material. He cut CD's, he emailed finished products to my son to forward to schools, he re-recorded material to appropriately meet the particular criteria of the school. Michael went above and beyond to provide my son with the best preparation for his auditions. Some was very last minute and Michael worked to fix or prepare audio material beyond working hours to make sure my son was able to submit it on time. The experience has been invaluable and, as a parent with no knowledge of college auditions, I'm not sure I would have been able to guide my son properly without Michael's help and consultation. Michael is always on time, is professional and extremely knowledgeable in his consultations regarding college musical theater expectations. He maintains a positive approach with his students while working them hard to get them to where they need to be. For parents, the comfort of his studio makes it worthwhile sitting and waiting and relaxing! A final comment, there are many on-line coaches that one can purchase who will offer tips and advice and will SKYPE with you to train you for auditions. They are VERY expensive and you pay for every little piece of consultation you may request. Michael's package is personalized to just your child and is very reasonable. He knows your child and what works best for him or her. It is important to know that he does not charge you extra for asking questions that are above and beyond what monologue or song one should choose. My son is still in the auditioning process and continues to work with Michael to refine his pieces prior to each audition - but I see a level of confidence with him after working with Michael that was not there before! I highly recommend students interested in Musical Theater or Acting or Vocal Performance, give consideration to working with Michael.Jan 29, 2015Lamb Studios's reply
Hi Joan, Its been an honor to work with you in this process, Michael
I am taking lessons with Mr. Lamb for singing and acting at the studio in South Windsor. I love his approach and techniques when it comes to singing and the advice he gave me for improving the monologues really helped. I always look forward to coming to the lessons and love working with him!Jan 24, 2015Lamb Studios's reply
Its been really great to work with your talent! See you soon!! ;-)
Michael Lamb is beyond wonderful to work with. He has helped me greatly improve both my singing and acting technique and has boosted my confidence. He has been the one I go to for career advice and support. He also helped me prepare for my college auditions and I ended up getting into my top schools for theatre. He brings out the best in people and I recommend him 100%.Jan 22, 2015Lamb Studios's reply

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The 45 minute trial discounted lesson is a good way for us to meet and see if its a match! I enjoy working with students who are eager and willing to sing material and work on developing their voice. I'm all about good energy and making people feel comfortable!
