"Clifford Lowe has performed well for the Penn Hills Community. Clifford, "Ahveekhy" has performed for the Penn Hills Coffeehouse, community fund raisers, and similar events and has provided our audiences with a refreshing cultural experience delivered through a warm welcoming voice and wonderful original songs. If you get a chance to book him for your event or see him perform jump on the opportunity." Howard D.
"My experience working with Clifford was during a music concert he was giving. It was very favorable. Clifford Lowe was very organized and efficient in the way he was preparing for the performance. I could see that Clifford Lowe was gifted and had years of performance experience. I was impressed with the variety of music Clifford Lowe played and sang, the effortless way he prepared everything necessary for a smooth successful performance. Clifford Lowe made sure that every detail was taken care of so that his audience had a memorable, exciting evening. I would recommend Clifford Lowe to any organization that is looking for a musician who is reliable, and has a reputation for bringing quality, efficiency and excellence to his performances."

"Mr. Lowe has been in the music industry for many years and has a wonderful gift enabling him to perform as a professional singer, song writer, guitar (bass, acoustic, & electric) player teacher and lecturer. I've had the opportunity to assist him during a few of his performances as needed. I am continually impressed with his professionalism and easy rapport in dealing with customers, fellow musicians and people of all ages and backgrounds. He is punctual, always leaving enough time for the unexpected. He gives quality service consistently and goes the extra mile to make sure that he doesn't impose on others. During the times that I was with him, everyone expressed their appreciation for his music performances and lectures. He has been a mentor and teacher to my sons who are teens and they have truly blossomed in musicianship under his tutelage. I have not experienced anything going wrong , because he prepares ahead of time and has alternate plans in case something does go wrong. I would encourage him to continue expanding his services because he has a lot to offer." Valerie W.
"Clifford Lowe, A.K.A. Ahveekhy, is a very talented musical artist. His singing voice is simply amazing. One woman I spoke to from The Change Tour concert event said she had tears in her eyes because she was so moved by Ahveekhy’s voice and his words. Each time I have worked with Mr. Lowe he has been extremely professional, dependable and very friendly." J.G. Boccella Ed.M
"Clifford "Ahveekhy" is an artist a technician and a first class musician. His versatility has been demonstrated during BDPA outreach performances. He adapts his musical gifts to fit the occasion. Clifford translates "old favorites", jazz, R&B, and sacred music into soothing, relaxing, uplifting and inspiring auditory sensations. His music has come to the attention of people in all walks of life." Stanley E. Lowe, D.A.
"Clifford is an experienced, competent professional musician with extremely sharp and intense talent. As vice president of BDPA Pittsburgh, he has performed effectively, unselfishly and showing sustained enthusiastic action with unflagging vitality. The results have been surprisingly impressive as to stun or overwhelm most, if not all who have experienced his performances on and off stage. Clifford has been a tremendous asset to BDPA both in the U.S. and Ghana, West Africa. Since returning from Ghana after being away for ten years, in the short 8 weeks since setting foot on U.S. soil, Clifford has decided to share his talent and goals with BDPA's goals for helping our poor and distressed people here. He has successfully played more than twenty-one professional musical engagements at his own expense to boost BDPA's cause and has other engagements lined up to perform in two days and beyond. He has also taught band members while welcoming them to perform with him spontaneously in street festivals. This young man in question has several other talents but his musical ability surpasses them all as he applies this asset to solve a multiplicity of problems. With all sincerity and honesty I recommend Clifford."

Student Review From Thumbtack
"I am currently one of Mr Lowe's students. Mr Lowe is a great music teacher. He not only knows a variety of music from different genres he knows a lot of music theory that goes behind it. His teaching style is very adaptive, forward thinking, and relatable. For example,If you are struggling with a particular song or a section of a song, he will break that song down and see where the problem is. If it's the technique, you will work on that if its you[are] not grasping the process you will work on it until you get it right. He's a great teacher in he doesn't want you developing bad habits that will prevent you from moving on to the next level. He also not only talks about how but the why he wants you to learn certain techniques. Mr Lowe is also a wonderful teacher because he eventually wants you to develop your own style wants you learn the foundation of your instrument first. I would recommend Mr Lowe to anybody of any age who wants to not only learn your instrument but grow in having a full knowledge of understanding of music."
