I have been teaching music for over 20 years and playing as a professional musician for even longer. I know how to get the best out of my students and have fun doing it.

My students constantly win superiors at contest and sit in the upper chairs in band and orchestra. Lets have some fun and make some music.

Randall has really helped my son grow as a musician in a short period of time. He is very knowledgeable, patient and uses humor to help establish rapport. I was concerned about virtual music lessons, but the experience has been much better than I expected. We were only going to use this for summer enrichment, but have decided to continue during the school year.

Randall is an awesome teacher. He has taken my bowing to a whole new level. I now feel comfortable with the bow in my hand and can now bow straight . I will be learning a new song next week. I am looking forward to my next lesson with Randall.

Randall knew exactly what to do to correct my bow grip and explain and model for me how my bowing wrist needed to change in order for me to bow straight. This has been a problem for me. He is extremely knowledgable. I am looking forward to practicing the exercises he gave me before the next lesson.

Randall is an amazing instructor. Very laid back, easy going and extremely knowledgeable.
He provides just the right amount of positive reinforcement sprinkled with a little constructive criticism which helps motivate me to be a better student. He provides that subtle nudge for me to learn something new without me realizing it. Did I mention, He makes learning a new instrument FUN….

Randall pushes the best out of you. He sees potential in you when, at times, you don't see it. You will progress quickly.

The lesson was for my grandson who is 13. It is difficult for him to focus, but he seemed to follow Randall for the entire lesson. He was introduced to quite a bit of information. This next week will provide information on what he is able to retain. For my part, I was pleased with the bits of musical history that Randall imparted, so I am receiving benefit from listening in.

Randall was fantastic. He immediately engaged with my son, and interspersed history and anecdotes into the lesson that made what he was saying even more relevant. Vlad is nine, and new to the violin. He couldn't wait to get home and practice, and is already looking forward to his next lesson.

Randall is an excellent instructor for kids. Makes learning fun and entertaining. Very punctual, never cancels lessons, great teacher.

Randall makes sure that you don't persist with any bad habits that will prevent you from learning how to play the instrument properly. He also gives you simple analogies why some things need to be done a certain way...and as a side benefit, you will learn about music history as it relates to what you are doing.

My daughter enjoys her lessons with Randall and has learned a lot. He is very patient with her and she especially likes that he explains why he wants her to do the things he asks her to do!
