The skills required to accompany a melody on a piano start with the simple stuff: scales, chords and intervals. But we make them fun! The Semper Method Book covers all of these issues and is customized for each student. Lots of tips and tricks make it fun. For example, just mstering inversions of chords allows you to"play what's under your hand" making a part that is always tasty and smooth.

We will cover:
How to accompany your own voice on keyboard
How to accompany other vocalists or instrumentalists
How to play in a band
And, while we're at it, how to cue the band and run a rehearsal.

Randy's insights on speaking on YouTube have been game-changing for me. His expertise spans many relevant topics, including breathing, public speaking, and voice strategies. And he has really helpful insights and feedback. I strongly recommend him for YouTubers.
Asata N.
Randy is attentive, honest, patient and a helpful instructor. The homework works if you follow it. I may have felt uncertain about the class at first but that changed after the second session. By the fourth class, I observed improvement in my speaking voice. I highly recommend Randy for speaking voice lessons.
Mojca -.
I had a great experience with Randy. I really enjoy his lessons. I appreciate that he gives homework and tips after each lesson. I noticed an improvement in my speaking voice after only 2 weeks.

Abbey L.
Tanisha is an unbelievably talented teacher. She really took the time to help me understand what was needed and to fill various gaps in my knowledge. She was also quite flexible with our time difference as I am on the Gold Coast, Australia. I would definitely recommend her to anyone at any level.
Martha
Learned a lot about the music industry and gained a lot of confidence in my singing. Also learned a lot about songwriting and music production. Definitely recommend if you are serious about singing.

Working with Tanisha Hall, I am learning how to practice for my class. She is the kind of professional that you do not dare come to her class half stepping. In other words, you do not come unprepared.

"my instructor Felicia was fantastic. She was knowledgeable, patient & extremely helpful. I learned so much in the half hour class. She was able to improvise when I was missing an important component to my machine. She truly is a genius. I scheduled another session at the conclusion of my 1st class, but find I must cancel due to physical problems. I am disabled with severe arthritis & her class is on the 3 rd floor. She carried my machine up for me & I made it up the stairs but when I got home later that evening my knees were so swollen I had to ice them & take pain medication. I know I cannot do that again & will let my instructor know it is not het fault."

He was quick to identify what my son needs to improve in order to get to the next level.
