Students of all ages in a personal relaxed atmosphere.
Customized to each student. If the student has not previously taken lessons I use Piano Adventures as the basic course guide. I have found it the most productive and enjoyable for my students. I uses a minimum of the Lesson and Theory book for my younger students with either the basic course or Accelerated course depending on their age and maturity. Adults begin with the All In one adult book. I add the other books that accompany each level based on the particular students needs and interests. I believe that a good grounding in Theory is essential as a student who becomes proficient in sight reading, no matter how well he/she plays by ear, will find that the doors for lifetime musical fulfillment with be much wider. However, with a student who has already had some lessons I will be happy to continue with any method that the student is currently using.
I also believe in supplementing the Piano course with the student's favorite ...

Kathy came to my home for my lesson. She has a very pleasant personality and it is very easy to follow her instructions. She kept the pace up, yet did not overload me. It's been a number of years since I have played and she did an excellent job on getting me back on the keys. I am looking forward to our next lesson.

We did online tonight per my request. Michael is so patient and encouraging and he answers my questions that are endless. I feel hopeful that I am learning the correct form and things I definitely would not pick up just trying to teach myself through the book. Thank you Michael!

She has learned (through listening and patience) what I need to work on during the previous lessons and we're focusing on these issues during class. She's very knowledgeable and easily transfers that to me.
Very pleasant to work with !

1st lesson went great! Ms. Depauw is knowledgeable with music theory, and techniques that I am using to help me re-learn sharps, this includes practicing scales (groan). I look forward to working with Ms. Depauw to help me improve my playing, and since I play for my Church, I know they will appreciate the lessons. LOL

Are you or your child just longing to express yourself on a keyboard? So was I, for as long as I can remember.

WHEN WE WERE KIDS..... we all learned to speak before we learned to read and write. So why would you ever try to read music before you can play it?

We play AND record right away, and it's a lot of fun!
Listening back to your performance is a powerful tool.
So we record all the time. And we make it fun.

What people are saying:
“...an amazing instructor...inspiring mentor...compassionate.”
“...a lot of patience...”
“My son's love for music has come from Randy.”
“...positive attitude and friendly personality.”
“...wildly entertaining.”
“ ...will teach you in a way that will make you want to learn.”
“We look forward to our session every week!”

Most music lessons are just too full of un-intuitive systems. They teach reading before you can play a note. What a turn-off! We make sure to play first and we always have great fun. We still get to all the ear ...

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.

Hello!

Lessons with me means we will be learning and having fun at the same time! I personalize each lesson for a specific student's needs and learning abilities. Whether your student is a visual learner, auditory learner, or a kinesthetic learner, I will help your student play comfortably and confidently. I have been teaching ages 5-18 for over 10 years and I love it! I use games, puzzles, online interactive games, and prizes to help the student's learn Music Theory along with playing the Piano and Harp. I want my students to love music as much as I do.

I hope to see you in class!!

"Mr Cameron is a wonderful teacher. Because of him I have learned more than I could ever possibly imagine. He teaches me little tips and tricks to keep me on task and to correctly play the violin. I may not have played violin for very long time but because of Mr Cameron I can play like I played the violin for 8 years! Mr Cameron has made me from a beginner all the way to a pro. Anyone who ever goes to Mr Cameron soon will be able to become a teacher. You forgot to keep your wrist straight, you forgot to keep your elbow straight, you are on the wrong line oh, don't worry, Mr. Cameron keep you on the goal. Mr Cameron is an amazing teacher."

"If you're considering taking music lessons, now is the time, and Josh is your guy! I've taken music lessons with a number of instructors in the past, and they've each had their own unique approach to both music and teaching. Working with Josh was the first time that I felt like my music education was a collaborative partnership. Josh was open to meshing my prior musical experience with his expertise and teaching style, and allowed me to choose the direction and pace of my progress while providing the structure and support I need as an adult learner. Whether it's online or in-person, I can't recommend studying with Josh highly enough!"
