Gary did a great job of getting me started on my first piano lesson. Learned a lot on my first day...hope I can measure up to my practice plan for the week! Bravo!
John R.
Gary's just fantastic. He has the knowledge and the attitude that makes learning both effective and fun. He's working with me to help learn the kind playing I want (mostly modern songs) but knows when to reach for other material to help learn important techniques.

My son has looked forward to trumpet lessons since we began working with Roxanne. We've only experienced instruction via Zoom, yet we all feel he's learned quite a bit and he feels he has become a better trumpet player. As a parent, I appreciate her flexibility and clear communication. I have confidence in her teaching style and the apparent vision she has for this point in my son's musical journey.
Mish
Ms. Roxanne is a wonderful teacher with fun and inspiring tricks up her sleeve. She is able to captivate the imagination of young minds and help them achieve a consistent learning experience. I am so impressed by how effective her teaching methods are in keeping young restless minds interested in learning music. Roxanne's lessons are playful which is perfect for kids and adults alike. She creates fun musical games and creates funny stories and characters around musical concepts to help children remember. This is so much more fun than just plain memorizing! She even invents new games for individual children based on their own personal interests; recently she came up with a treasure hunt game in a young boy's backyard to help him learn about rhythm. Her YouTube channel keeps kids excited for the next lesson with creative and kid-friendly videos. She truly is an ingenious music teacher. I cannot recommend her enough to inspire you and your children in the way of music.

I'm a 52 year-old with no music background and today was my first virtual alto sax lesson with Randall. I must admit that I was very intimidated at first and didn't think that I would be able to get the most out of this virtual learning experience. However, Randall made me very comfortable and quickly got me relaxed as if he were right there with me in my living room. We began by him showing me the do's and don'ts of putting my horn together (especially the mouthpiece), fingering, and creating the sound I wanted. I was impressed because he taught me about 5 to 6 notes in this initial session. To be honest I didn't even think that I would've been able to get a note out but I did. Although I didn't want my first saxophone lesson to be virtual, I can confidently say that I will continue my sessions with Randall and highly recommend his services.

I can't speak highly enough of him, I've gone from sounding like a brass whoopee cushion to being able to 'sound like a trumpet'. In addition, he's taught me the basics of reading music, which I can now do without a cheat-sheet (on a basic level)!! All in 3 lessons of an hour each!!!
