Randy L.

Franklin, MI

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 and teach reading before you can play a note. What a turn-off! We make sure to play first and we always have great fun. And we get to all the ear training ...

This past year, I have been brought back to piano music through Randy's excellent teaching. His approach is one of a kind. He helped this student to hear the music within me, the sounds around me and to play what I hear. He is truly amazing, encouraging, supportive and highly skilled, a true professional. I am always happy to recommend him to anyone who is seeking the very best instruction, by the very best instructor.

I had always wanted to learn how to play the piano. I wanted an instructor who was fun, loved playing and teaching, and patient. Randy is all of those things and more. I have learned so much about music and the piano in the four months I’ve been working with him. He makes me feel confident that I can learn to play almost anything! All I can say is I picked the right guy. I’m looking forward to many more lessons and with his help reaching some of the many musical goals I have set for myself.

I give beginner piano students a great head start in their musical education, with a solid foundation covering piano technique and an introduction to music theory which would serve them well whether they continue to pursue piano, or pick up another instrument along the way.

My 9 year-old son has been enjoying his trumpet lessons with Caleb a lot. Caleb is nice and patient, which is very encouraging for children. He is also easy to communicate with, very flexible and always on time. I highly recommend him for younger clients.

Caleb is the first music instructor we've ever worked with... but it's been a very positive experience thus far. He is professional, patient and talented. We look forward to every lesson with him!

I teach piano in the same manner in which I teach every instrument. First I teach students the rudiments of the instrument. Also I teach them how to read and a bit of music theory. From that point I like to follow the students lead. They bring in songs that they would like to learn, or possibly how to play a certain style like Funk, or Blues, or how to approach a classical sonata. At every point I try to point out general aspects of music that need to be learned from the material that they choose.

Love my lessons

John is an amazing teacher all around. Very professional and good at getting me to understand things which may be a bit confusing. I am currently reading and playing between four books and I never thought it would be possible especially just after taking lessons for a year. Sometimes I feel a bit frustraited when I am not able to play certain pieces or when I dont understand a concept but John is great at breaking everything down and making it easier. I am now realizing how my piano skills can be utilizied in my other music projects. When I attend my lessons I am reminded why I love having them so much. With him as my instructor I can see my skills improving and I know I will only get better. I recommend piano lessons to everyone and if you are looking to have a great teacher John is your go to person !
