Randall C.

Tallahassee, FL

About Randall

My love of music and musical talent was discovered when I was just five years old. An uncle gave me a plastic recorder and, without lessons or help from anyone, I was playing melodies within days. Soon after I started taking private lessons on Saxophone and Clarinet.
I played my first paying job at age 14.
When I was 15, my private instructor, asked me if I would be interested in teaching. He put me on the County list of private instructors and and soon I had my own thriving studio of Sax and Clarinet students. From that time on, I have almost continuously been involved in music educatio
n.
Though I had listened to the rock "guitar gods" of the 60's I never became interested the guitar until, at the age of 15, I first heard Maestro Andres Segovia through his televised master classes. About the same time, I was amazed by the chord melody genius of jazz artists like George Van Eps, Joe Pass, and Bucky Pizzarelli. It was then I realized that the guitar could be an "orchestra."
In the small town where I grew up, there were no guitar teachers so I studied with outstanding Guitarist Ed McGuire. Later, I studied formally with several renowned professors of guitar, including Bruce Holzman at FSU and Randy Reed, a professor at Duke University in Durham North Carolina.
I have also performed in Master Classes for Classical Guitarists Atigoni Goni and Dimitri Diatchenko.
Before making North Florida my home, I toured and played throughout the Northeast, Midwest and Southeast in a variety of venues and styles from Rock to Jazz to R&B.
Even after settling down I have stayed active in the music business, playing and teaching. I continue to work regularly performing solo, or in ensembles throughout Florida from Tallahassee to Jacksonville.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher who prefers to motivate my students by instilling my love of, and enthusiasm for, music in them rather than using any kind of "scare" tactics. I had a very few "knuckle rapper" style teachers over the years and found them to be very unmotivating.
A large percentage of the progress a student makes happens between the lessons. The more they practice, the faster they improve.
I also believe in building a solid foundation that my students can build upon. A good teacher teaches a student how to teach themselves.
On guitar, I encourage, but don't insist on, my students learning to read music. Some styles of guitar do not require it, but I do mention the gigs I have gotten over the years because I could read.
On all instruments, I am a big believer in great technique, musicianship and improvisational skills.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio is in back of the house as an addition. It has its own separate entrance and is approx 160 sq feet. Well lit and with heat and air.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide a music stand if needed. Students must have their own instrument. They will need to get their own books, though I do provide much supplemental material.

*** Specialties ***
Jazz, Classical, Blues, Flamenco

About Justin

Winner of The 2015 American Prize in Voice - Chicago Musical Theater Award, American tenor Justin John Moniz, has earned great acclaim for his “comic chops and huge voice”. Lauded by the South Florida Classical Review as a "superb high tenor" and a "vocal standout", his "refined" work has also been praised by the Miami Herald and Cape Cod Times.

Mr. Moniz’s students have been praised by the Miami Herald for their ability to bring “a veteran performer’s assurance and personality” to the
stage. Many have gone onto perform on Broadway, National Tours, and regionally, with companies including the Utah Festival Opera & Musical Theatre, the Actors' Playhouse, Stagedoor Manor, the Area Stage Company, and Orchestra Miami, where one student made his professional debut in the title role of Menotti’s Amahl and the Night Visitors.

Justin provides an outstanding and quality brand of instruction aswell as a comfortable and focused environment in which to learn, work collaboratively, and take risks when in a musical theatre workshop or lesson. When being vocally warmed up, Justin notices the quality of your voice for that day or time of day and uses different warm ups to accomadate your vocal needs. When working with Justin I am always discovering new things and pushing my limts with his unique mix of practicing material, learning new material, and then coorelating that material into discussions about the business aspect of musical theatre. Justin is not only a fantastic and highly recommeded teacher for me, but has become a mentor and role model to me of what a successful and prolific working actor should be.

I started taking lessons with justin in 2012. At the time I had never taken any vocal training (I was 21), and Justin helped me tremendously in learning how to use my voice. He instilled a great respect for the fundamentals in me, and has always been a generous and helpful presence. I stringly recommend him to anyone looking for a strong and knowledgable instructor.

Akiyla M.

Tallahassee, FL

About Akiyla

Music is my eudemonia, as well as, my asylum. I have come to personally know and enamor its therapeutic benefits. It has inspired me to develop personally and academically. On innumerable occasions, when I was privileged with the opportunity to perform, I continuously saw the relief and the elation that the music was bringing to people. As Bob Marley once said, “One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” Consequently, I sought out to make it my life’s goal to use music therapeutically to replenish lives. I aspire to do this by naturally leveraging my adoration for m
usic, expanding my knowledge and experiences in music, and ultimately becoming an education leader/practitioner in music therapy. I graduate from Florida A & M University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music, with a concentration in classical voice. During my undergraduate year I proudly served as the following leadership positions in my 80 plus concert choir as the President, Vice President, soprano section and assistant section leader. I am also a sister of the cherish sisterhood Sigma Alpha Iota International Music Fraternity inc. Currently I am a Graduate student at Florida State University aspiring to obtain my masters in music therapy. With my love, dedication and discipline for my profession I am certain that my students will benefit significantly as we build upon their musicianship.

*** Lesson Details ***
My students can expect to have fun while still incorporating discipline. All students will learn different styles and techniques from various styles of music to expand their musical talents and knowledge. Even if your focus is classical music, you can still expect to learn some jazz, pop, etc. Students can also expect to work on breathing exercises, diction, basic piano, basic guitar, sight reading, ear training, proper singing techniques as well as the anatomy of the throat. After a few months students will see tremendous improvements in the areas mentioned above as well as gain more confidence, individuality, creativity, adoration for the art and be able to execute their vocal instrument efficiently and beautifully!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have voice books for soprano singers, a piano, and a guitar. I require students to provide their own voice books (if I require them for your particular session), a notebook, and a recording device.

*** Specialties ***
Classical-Spirituals, Opera, Romantic, Baroque, etc.

Reggae

Lessons are taught on an electronic keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
My specialty is teaching beginners and organizing piano recitals as a means of building confidence and enthusiasm.

Rachel Hall is one of the most thoughtful and detail minded musicians that I've worked with in my 25 years as a professional performer and teacher. She is intelligent, patient, knowledgable, and responsible. In addition to having a thorough knowledge of the viola as a teacher, she is a very fine performer as a soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral player. I can give her my highest recommendation!!

Rachel Hall is a fantastic musician and dedicated teacher. I have worked with her as a performer and have also witnessed her teach high school viola students. Her sense of organization, her passion, and her joy make her a special human being and very caring teacher. She is enthusiastic to share her knowledge with children and will go out of her way to make each student feel important and special. One time, I watched her perform side by side with one of her students in a prestigious venue, and he became so nervous, he got sick on the stage. She proceeded to take him backstage and take care of him until his parents could help him, even though she missed a significant performance. Her heart and skills make her an excellent teacher.
