Being apart of Fingersnaps  and having the pleasure of Dj Lamont being my mentor has been rewarding. We started out when I had no experience at all, I just knew I loved music and wanted to dive deeper into it. Dj Lamont asked me what I wanted out of this experience, and I specifically said that I wanted to be able to impact and play for my community, local events, and anyone else who feels drawn to my style. Proudly to say with only 1 year of knowledge and practice, Dj Lamont paved the way for my personal journey. I continue to practice on my own time, and I've already had a few gigs this year alone. I'm excited for the journey and I feel that if you have the slightest interest, want to develop more skill, or truly become a professional Dj, Fingersnaps is a great resource and start. Dj Lamont takes the time to carefully build you up, and critique you at the same time. He is honest and so helpful with everything he explains and shows you. I love that the sessions feel personal, and you get so much out of each session. Thank you for the impactful experience Fingersnaps! More...

This will sound dramatic, but finding DJ Lamont has changed. my. life. If you're shopping around, look no further. Or if you need to, go and get quotes from other DJs/teachers and you'll see that not only is his price competitive / at market rate, I would confidently bet that the value he brings is the best - here's why:* DJ Lamont has over 30 years of experience* DJ Lamont embraces ALL genres of music (if you're not ready to start lessons, at least drop by to marvel at his impressive record collection)* DJ Lamont is knowledgeable in most / ALL - platforms - vinyl, controllers, various softwares, you name itDJ Lamont truly is a guru. gu·ru/ooroo/1. a spiritual teacher, especially one who imparts initiation.2. an influential teacher or popular expert.The best part: he is so humble and approachable - working with him feels safe, zero judgment, encouraging free self expression. DJ Lamont has a gift for enabling each individual's deeper connection to music, authentically making it feel as though you're creating living art together.Through this, he is well known in the community and is steadily building a DJ community for us all. Through this community:* Not only will you learn skills 1:1 at the studio, but* Learn from other DJs* Get opportunities to DJ publicly - at the studio and other gigsI'd been wanting to learn solely for the purpose of DJ'ing a set for my friends at Dolores for Pride, started with him December 2018, accomplished my goal June 2019, and he's plugged me into DJ'ing at the studio, for the LGBT center, at Sunday Streets - and they continue to offer me other gigs that have been consistently fun, and have intentionally gotten me to "break out of my shell."When you're starting out, it's one thing to DJ for yourself - at home, with headphones on. Through his encouragement and network, I've taken my skills to the next level by doing it for others.Important note: the studio has practically every type of equipment you might want to play with, but if you plan on doing more than one lesson, I highly recommend to purchase your own gear so you can practice on your own - that way, each subsequent lesson you can glean more and more insights and skills from the studio to keep evolving your artistry.Whether you want to be a professional DJ or pick this up as a hobby, I cannot think of a better environment than Fingersnaps to let your interests thrive.I've come out of this not only with a teacher, but a mentor and friend, a broader community, and a new way of investing in my own "self care"I've spent most of my life being very "Type A" - striving for perfection, fearful of messing up. For me, these aren't just music lessons, but life lessons - making space for being imperfect, unafraid, committed to self expression, adaptable when the output is not what you wanted to be, and overall more fun-loving and lighthearted.Working with DJ Lamont has taught me how to be more playful, and thus more creative, which has directly increased my own self confidence - as a musician, as an artist, as a human.I am beyond grateful.If you're still thinking about it, just drop by the studio and get a feel for it!

If you've ever wondered what if, go talk to DJ Lamont. I've always had a love for music and wanted to get more involved but never took the leap. I watched some videos on YouTube on how to DJ, but that only gets you so far. I signed up for the introductory class to test the waters and never looked back.Lamont is a great teacher who takes you through the equipment, software, techniques, music theory and more to help you become a confident new DJ. He knows his stuff and his experience and knowledge speaks for itself during the lessons. You'll be surprised at your progress after a few sessions and find yourself counting beats while listening to songs. Music gets even more exciting!Thanks to Lamont I've deejayed at a couple street fairs, outside fingersnaps studio in the mission (which landed me a gig) and most recently at Pride in SF.Ask around chances are a DJ you know or heard was once a student of Lamont's. Sign up ASAP you won't regret it. More...

If you're at all interested in DJ-ing, take lessons with DJ Lamont. Sure, you can learn some things off YouTube, but what I gained from Lamont was more than just skills--it was a deeper respect for the art and firsthand knowledge about the technology and professionalism needed to succeed. Lamont is patient, dedicated, and an extremely skilled DJ. I feel lucky to have learned from him! More...

If you're considering learning how to DJ, I say wait no more and contact Lamont immediately. I chatted with him about my aspirations and goals before we began, he recommended the appropriate package, and throughout our time together, he customized his instruction to fit my needs. He's an extremely patient and thorough instructor, always ensuring you master the fundamentals before moving on, all while guiding you along on a dynamic pace. I grew from a music enthusiast who occasionally dabbled in DJing to someone who is extremely comfortable both on the turntables and the mixer.I give Lamont the highest recommendation! More...

Lamont, a mindful and soulful DJ, walking music encyclopedia, mix tape collector , and creator, thoughtful and dedicated teacher of voice  music, djaying and life, gave me the best present ever that can last a lifetime. Lamont gave me a voice and DJ lesson about two months ago in his studio   My dream job is to be a radio personify and I recently. graduated with a degree in media technology When   I'm nervous, I fumble my words.  Many of times I have said to myself . 'why did I say that or that did not  come out the way I want '  I was ready to give up on using my voice . Lamont's lesson gave me back my confidence and helped dig out my true voice,  a voice that articulates, enunciates, and that' encompasses emotion, personality, and character. Lamont was organized and full of positive energy.We started with pronunciation exercises, by  reciting the alphabet  and  multiple tongue twisters.  These exercises really helped push out the sounds.  We applied those skills to to a reading  where we we engaged  in a conversation through our own interpretation .  After listening to the original recording, it was interesting to find the difference in the artist's interpretation; It's just about being true and committed to the words on the page.The next part of the lesson was to interpret a poem .  At first I  felt I could not feel the words .  But with Lamont's direction  and encouragement, he helped me apply my experiences to the words  The words eventually became my own.  I felt an emotional release  and a sense of accomplishment.The final exercise involved  something that I have done before.   This time  Lamont helped me take to the next level.  He recorded my voice for drops for his radio show and brought out the strong ,feisty, Brooklyn girl that I am.  After this I had the opportunity to receive  my first  DJ lesson.  Lamont taught me the basics of djaying and the use of the  controller for mixing.  It is obvious that Lamont really wants to share his love for music and djaying.  He broke everything down so that I could practice on my own.  Once I got back to New York, I am realized that I am  addicted  and I could do so much with the basics.       Lamont really inspired me with the voice and DJ lesson to the extent that I can really see myself developing as an artist and radio/television personality.    Lamont is very knowledgable and wants to share; He is passionate about teaching  and is  dedicated to helping students find their true voice.  Just when I felt I was going to give up, Lamont boosted my confidence and my made me feel I can do what I put my mind and what I practice everyday.I would recommend  Lamont for voice coaching to anyone interested in public speaking, speaking on the radio or television, acting,  anyone  reciting a Maya Angelou poem, or for anyone who wants to gain confidence speaking in front of people.   If you are new to DJaying and don't now where or how to start ,Lamont will put you at ease and break everything down.  Pretty soon your listeners will be saying " Last night a DJ saved my life."  youtube.com/watch?v=GtfZ…That is exactly how I feel . That night. that DJ, DJ Lamont saved my life. More...

DJ Lamont has been performing at the Mission Community Market since we started. He is one of our regular performers and we love having him there. Whenever DJ Lamont plays for us, everyone is the market is moving and grooving. It really enhances the atmosphere at the market, shoppers are dancing as they pick out their veggies and the vendors are happy as well. Not only is the music wonderful, but Lamont is a wonderful person to work with- very considerate, warm and professional. Our market wouldn't be the same without him, so we hope he continues playing for us for many years to come! More...

I was fortunate enough to hire DJ Lamont from Fingersnaps Media Arts for a networking event I had for the Wedding Industry.  I only gave him a few days notice, but Lamont was nice enough to move things around on his schedule to come check out the venue a few days prior to the event and was able to fit me into his schedule.  I am so grateful to Lamont for this.  Lamont was very professional and cared a lot about being sure to set up on time, and he wanted to know our timeline so that he could do a great job with MC-ing our event.  He was excellent, and was able to provide the perfect music for our very elegant event which included an Opera Singer and a Ballet Dance Group.  It was very important to be sure the mood of the event was set by the music that Lamont played.  He did a great job, was on time and very nice to the guests.  Everyone loved the music he played  and his MC-ing of the event was flawless.  The guests commented on how nice he was.   I highly recommend that you hire DJ Lamont whenever you need a DJ or MC.  He is sensitive to your needs and will play according to what you request.

DJ are a dime a dozen in San Francisco. Everyone with a laptop now claims to be a "DJ."Then there are the select few whom actually make a great living as DJs, get to travel, play music, and live a pretty charmed life. I am lucky enough to get paid extremely well to perform as a DJ both in the Bay Area, and travel Nationally. I have a killer life, and my now make more money than my friends whom sold their souls to work in the corporate world and judged my career choice. This is a direct result of training with Lamont on a weekly basis for about 2 years. Lamont is  fantastic instructor, and was able to coach me from the ground up. No matter how much, or how little experience you have as a DJ, training with Lamont is the best investment you can make in your career! Lamont is like a personal counselor, mentor, advisor, and master of the decks. Do yourself a favor and learn on vinyl w Lamont. It will take much longer, but it will be the best investment in the long run. Words escape how much I, and his family of current and former students love Lamont. He is a fixture of the SF DJ community, and an amazing mentor & friend! More...

The secret to keeping a party dancing all night is knowing the popular songs, playing the right songs at the appropriate time, playing the songs at the right temp to keep them dancing, and allowing the party attendees to request songs that keep them wanting more

Taken by the spin of the wheel that consumed me to prosper and reach to the highest by being abundant in spirit knowning that my talent has excelled beyond all means and exceed beyond all barriers. I am music and music is within me.

What I love most about my job is djing in front of happy, good energy diverse crowds of people of various age groups, and having them dancing non-stop to the music I play. My style is based upon the energy of the crowd. I play songs that are for my crowds and that I know what they will dance to.

My love for music, my dj skills, and having the ability to use my skills in various ways instead of a club setting

Experience, I cater to my customers and their guests, fair pricing, and professionalism
