Randall K.

Clearwater, FL

I've been teaching theory for over 20 years and have helped my students get better grades in school, get into college and to develop a deeper understanding of music and how it works.

About Randall

I have been teaching music for over 20 years and playing as a professional musician for even longer. I know how to get the best out of my students and have fun doing it. I'm a University of South Florida grad and I have worked and studies in Las Vegas and at the Berklee school of music. My students constantly win superiors at contest and sit in the upper chairs in band and orchestra. Lets have some fun and make some music.

Randall is an amazing instructor. Very laid back, easy going and extremely knowledgeable.
He provides just the right amount of positive reinforcement sprinkled with a little constructive criticism which helps motivate me to be a better student. He provides that subtle nudge for me to learn something new without me realizing it. Did I mention, He makes learning a new instrument FUN….

Mr. Gallo was very professional. He started out making sure Mackenzie was using the right techniques for breathing, mouthpiece, etc. He wants to be sure you know the correct method from start to finish and doesn't just teach you the notes/music. We were very pleased with his teaching method. Thank you.

My 13 year old daughter wanted lessons to improve on her french horn playing . We found Pasquale through his positive reviews and thought we would give him a try. I was a little apprehensive that lessons could be effective through the Internet verses in person. I was wrong.
Pasquale called us as soon as we signed up for lessons to introduce himself, exchange Skype information as well as iron out the best times for lessons.
I played French horn from 5th grade through most of high school and also took some private lessons.
I was extremely impressed with Pasquale. He took the time to really explain to my daughter the mechanics of playing a brass instrument better than I ever heard it when I was younger.
He had my daughter take notes and gave her assignments for the next week.
I am looking forward to watching my daughter's playing grow under his guidance.

Cheryl is remarkable. She engaged with my 6 year old nephew immediately. She made it fun for him and he had a great timeand, all the while he was learning much more than I expected for a first lesson. Cheryl has a lovely way of building trust. She is a skilled and talented musician and teacher.
I highly recommend Cheryl.
