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

Avis C.

Tallahassee, FL

About Avis

I started piano lessons at five years old. My dad was my first teacher. During middle school and high school I continued with other teachers. Music became very important during my years at college, consequently, at the University of Minnesota I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education; in graduate school I earned a Master of Science in Music Education at the University of Illinois and finally, I earned a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership at the University of Miami.

*** Lesson Details ***
I establish a good rapport with my students in order for the class to be enjoyable. It is v
ery important to emphasize hand position and posture with beginners. New lessons are assigned each week. There are lessons that build technique and others that are based on familiar songs or easy songs for beginners.

*** Studio Equipment ***
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.
