Is it your dream to be on the stage performing for audiences playing your songs? Maybe you need help refining how to engage an audience & find ways to connect to the crowd.

Well I've been performing professionally & gigging for 10 years now, and I've learned a lot along the way. Whether performing in a small club, on the road for strangers, at big festivals, on big stages, small stages, sold out shows or empty, performing has built my confidence and shown me exactly how to use my time on stage efficiently to be able to tell my story through my songs.

Building up the confidence to perform on stage takes a lot, and I can help you find your voice and be the performer you've always dreamed of being. Message me today and let's chat!

Whether you want to play in your bedroom or get out and play stages, I can help you get there. Since I've been 17 I have been in a band, including playing multiple genres in those bands. I've played by myself and also in a 10 piece band. I've played in front of hundreds of people.

About Tim

My son's first lesson was excellent. Tim went at my son's pace and made sure he understood what he was learning. Tim was friendly and my son felt comfortable interacting with him. My son is really looking forward to his next lesson!

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.
Romy R.
Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

Since I was 16 I have made a professional life performing at a keyboard of some description. So that makes for a lot of years of playing. (Check my hair color)

We record you in a recording studio environment from the first lesson.

Lots of styles: every possible kind of band, jazz, rock, funk, blues, country, solo.... Whatever you want to play there is a pretty good chance I can help you realize your dream. And get started fast.

An integrated approach:
Music almost always involves several skills. Below are some of the complementary skills that I can help you with.

In my Semper Method, we always address several of them at every session. For example, we record, sing and play all the time. To sing you should be able to pick out intervals at the piano, or better yet, accompany yourself and everyone needs some music theory. So it really is all one thing.

Accompaniment, Arrangement and Composition, Audio Engineering, Audition Prep, Composition, Ear Training, Film Scoring, ...

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.

"To Whom It May Concern:

It has been a pleasure to have Ms. Leeora K. teach my son how to play piano for two years. My son developed a positive relationship with Ms. K. He excelled in piano under her direction. Ms. K. is a responsible, kind, thoughtful, and professional piano instructor that we were blessed to have worked with. I appreciate that Ms. K. is passionate and caring about teaching my son and others how to play the piano.

I believe that Ms. K. would make an excellent candidate for any work position that she seeks because she is a friendly, helpful, and reliable person. I highly recommend Ms. K! Please feel free to contact me if you should need further information.


Thank you,

Maureen Flaherty"

"Hallie's dedication and passion is second to none. I had the honor to see her at Sewanee conducting a symphony performing a piece that she composed. In order to put that production together, she had to conceive of the piece, write the parts for each performer, and teach all the musicians how it should sound through rehearsal. It was amazing. That same weekend, she was the soloist performer for a flute concerto and you could see that she really knows her stuff! Her ability to communicate her vast musical knowledge is what makes her a fabulous teacher. I highly recommend Hallie for your music lessons."

Since then, I've had the pleasure of performing in SDSU ensembles with Jordan. I mean it when I say it: Jordan is not only one of the best music teachers in San Diego, but he is also one of the best trombone players I've ever had the pleasure of knowing."

"Bill is a thoughtful teacher, an amazing musician, and a really caring guy

I would highly recommend Bill! He is such a great player and teacher! He has helped enormously with my saxophone playing, clarinet playing, and improvising.

Since my saxophone playing is already fairly advanced. In our lessons on saxophone focus heavily on advanced jazz improvisation topics, like standard tunes, and transcription. He is so knowledgeable on these advanced topics but is really great at showing me the basics so that I can learn at my own level and pace.

On clarinet Bill and I work on more classical studies and instrument technique to get my clarinet playing more on track.

Bill is such a patient and motivating teacher. It is clear that he cares deeply about MY SUCCESS in music. He has helped me feel good about my musical progress and inspired me to work harder!

He has even given me lots of great music business advice, and helped me think about what I want out of music in my life.

Bill is so easy to get along with and is really careful to explain things in a way that I can understand them.

Its been really awesome getting to know and work with him!"
