About Randy

I'm a pianist-singer specialized in Western Art, jazz, and musical theatre idioms and I teach lessons in all classical and contemporary styles. I was conservatory-trained at Shenandoah University where I earned Dual-BM's in Performance and Jazz Studies, one of only a handful in its history to do so.

My daughter has been taking voice & piano lessons with Randy for about a year now. Within a few months after switching to Randy, the improvement in both her piano playing & in her voice was very noticeable not only to us (her biased parents), but also to her music & performing arts teacher at school and others. Randy is an excellent teacher who knows how to bring the best out of his students. My daughter loves her lessons with Randy !

Randy did an excellent job. Very patient and knowledgeable regarding the subject matter.
Daniel
Randy is a great singing tutor. He’s patient, flexible and encouraging. My son is a little reserved boy and not comfortable at expressing his feelings, and Randy helped him reading through every phrases before the singing. That was very helpful. Thank you Randy!

Hello! I'm Jocelyne and I am very excited to help you or your kids start their musical journey. I have played with different genres the main ones being mariachi, classical, and jazz. With my lessons, I focus a lot on foundation so my students have the building blocks to be successful and problem solve when I am not there. That includes technique, music theory, and musicianship. I am patient and I tailor my lessons for every individual to make sure my student is learning, engaged, and having fun. LET'S GET STARTED!

I've been teaching guitar for over eight years. I've previously been a part of two bands during my formative years and recently have been a session guitar player for four upcoming indie rock, alternative, and R&B/Soul albums.
For children and beginners, I use the Mel Bay publication Children's Guitar Chord Book as well as Hal Leonard's Guitar Method series. I also apply basic music theory that includes learning the Circle of Fifths and basic reading of sheet music.

For intermediate guitar players, I utilize the Gibson's Learn and Master Guitar series to teach Power Chord Formation and Delivery, Fingerpicking, Pentatonic Scales, Reading Tabulature, and tackling some of classic rock and jazz's favorite tunes.

For guitar lessons at my studio, I leverage Guitar Pro to project and display tabs and play-alongs with ease. For in-home lessons, I use the software for select lessons as we begin song selection and play-alongs.

Milton is an excellent instructor! He is very knowledgeable, kind, and patient. The guitar curriculum he uses is very good. I have prior musical knowledge in piano, and Milton knows when I need to be challenged/need extra work and when I can breeze through exercises on my new instrument. Lessons are really fun and I always look forward to them. Highly recommended!

I have been teaching clarinet for nearly thirty years (beginning to college level), and particularly enjoy teaching out of the Klosé method in a way that is interactive and enjoyable. While learning solid technique, we will include resonator fingerings for the best possible tone, and think beyond the wonderful clarinet literature waiting for you, as we unlock your personality in the chameleon quality of the clarinet. I encourage students to also play by ear and learn cultural traditional music from all over the world.

I would assess the student's capability and begin with the level appropriate for the student. For new students with no experience, I would start out with simple hand positioning and playing the piano firsthand. We'll learn as we go with fine details of reading notation and techniques. I will introduce one or two subject to cover for each lesson. For students that have more experience and are at the beginner level, I will introduce technical practices and assign a piece of music. As for intermediate and advance, we will cover technical practice, assigned music, and music theory.

Not only is he a skilled musician he makes learning fun and gears the lessons to the pace of my son. I especially love that he easily can identify issues with your voice and starts right in on exercises to take home and practice in order to correct the issue.

Is Cello Hard to Learn? Read THIS Before Taking Lessons

Many beginning musicians wonder, “Is cello hard to learn?” The process of learning the cello is not difficult, but it’s important to keep in mind that the cello is not an instrument of instant gratification. It does require focused, daily practice time and a good teacher to guide you along the way. How far you progress with cello is a direct result of the amount of quality time you put into practicing the instrument. Even someone who puts in just 30 minutes a day will notice a signi …

Should Drummers Learn Music Theory?

If you're a drummer, does that mean you're off the hook if you don't want to learn music theory? Maybe you just want to rock out and learn some killer fills and wow the crowd with your solos. No need for modes, minor scales or the Circle of Fifths... right? Think again. Learning music theory can be incredibly helpful to any musician, and excluding yourself from those Music Theory 101 classes is only holding you back.
