My name is Rand and I am from Houston originally. A born and raised Texan with a lot of family in the music scene in Austin. I'm a graduate from the Sound Recording Technology program from Texas State University's School of Music. Years ago I was in such mentorship programs as HOSTS and Best Buddies. These days, I do freelance Audio Engineering and have always done teaching as a side job, starting with teaching my younger cousins. Hope to hear from you soon, I find teaching to be a fun and rewarding experience and do my best to make clients feel the same!!
