"Paul is an excellent teacher. He was kind, patient and willing to work on whatever it was that our daughter wanted to work on. He not only taught her guitar, but helped with her writing and some recording aspects as well. She was a teenager and loved her time she spent with Paul. She has been very successful so far in her music career and it all started with a passionate music teacher."

"He just makes our music so much better. An exceptional teacher.

Randy has worked with my partner and I for 15 years. He took our melodies, arranged them, and turned them into songs that were actually singable. Watching Randy run a rehearsal and teach people songs is a sight to behold. He makes it happen quickly and efficiently, and we always have fun.

In all sincerity, I consider Randy to be the most talented musician I've ever known. He is a great teacher, even of inexperienced adults, and fun to work with. A winning combination all the way around.

I love her. She is so sweet, she is amazing I would tell all my friends interested in piano, voice, music theory, songwriting or anything having to do with music, to take lessons with her. I can’t believe how much I have improved on my songwriting, voice and playing. I wish I had found her sooner. She's a miracle worker.
