Great Piano Teacher!

I've had a few lessons with Randy, and I'm very pleased with my progress! He is extremely knowledgeable and does everything possible to make a student feel comfortable. With Randy, learning the piano is exciting and fun! I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a teacher that will work with you to be the best musician you can be.

Randy is a great songwriting coach!

I have the highest recommendation for Randy as a songwriting teacher and coach. I walked into his studio less than a year ago, having recently started writing my own songs. With remarkable patience and understanding, he picked out the parts of my work that were working well (he always points these out), and he led me, step by step, through a process of learning how to improve both my lyrics and my music composition. He has an excellent approach of knowing where I am as a student, and exposing me to just the right amount of new information to take me to the next step. Randy is organized, has a good mix of theory and practice, and his teaching style matches my learning style very well. Through many systematic steps, I feel I have become a much better songwriter in the last 9 months or so. He is always encouraging, and added to my motivation for creating an album of my own work. Randy is now coaching me through the creation of this first album — a cumulative process that I’m enjoying thoroughly. Again, I wholeheartedly recommend Randy as a guide for your songwriting journey.

Excellent teacher with varied backgrounds!

Randy has been a wonderful teacher! I have worked with him for many years as a musical theater coach and now am venturing into improving my piano skills. He is so knowledgable about theory, music history and just playing his instrument that I always feel wholly enriched after my sessions with him! He really helps you to understand the how and the why that when you get into the piece itself, it all comes together and makes sense! He also is a strong advocate of finding an artists' authentic voice. This is wonderful because when you learn to play the instrument, he helps you to reveal your own signature! You are not just playing songs anymore. You are making music.

So far with Barbee has been a fantastic experience, she is a really talented and patient teacher and performer, she is humorous which is good, you don't want a teacher that is serious all the time, although she can get serious when needed.
A really good person to work with, in general great! I truly love her teaching and her dedication to students.

Excellent!

Two months of lessons have proven very productive. I have seen great improvement in my daugher's abilities and confidence. Barbee is mild in her ways yet tenacious; always pushing to the next level. I like that I am able to sit through the lesson. The classes run on schedule. Barbee is responsive to calls/texts and is flexible with schedule changes.

I have had the privilege of working with Marjorie for the past 14 years. I began taking lessons with her while still in middle school and I have continued to grow as a performer through years of her expertise and hands-on approach. She has trained me in multiple styles including broadway, opera, pop and jazz. Her willingness to go the extra mile and build a student's confidence and stage presence has enabled me to tackle any audition with a sense of pride in my abilities.

Marjorie has coached me through more than 50 auditions including conservatory program auditions. She has given me the gift of multiple recitals that allowed me to put her teachings to use. I can proudly say that I am confident not only in my singing ability, but also in my ability to "act the role". By that I mean, adding a character to every musical piece I perform, enabling me to be that much more successful in my performances. She has challenged me to leave my comfort zone and hand over control and I have been more than successful every time I put my complete faith in her.

To me Marjorie is the epitiome of voice teachers. I can not recommend her highly enough. Whether you are trying to make a career out of performance or if you are simply looking for a hobby, Marjorie is by far the best out there. Please give yourself the gift of voice lessons with Marjorie.

Before Marjorie, I didn’t know I could sing. Her patient guidance and enthusiasm have helped me find my voice. Her loving and playful teaching style creates a safe and warm environment for learning, exploring, making mistakes, making beautiful sound, and having great fun. With her support I feel more confident in myself. She is truly a wonderful and inspiring teacher.

Music Performance
Great teacher for beginners or advanced students

I'm a pop/jazz/classical pianist, and I took lessons with Sebastian to get better at improvisation, and just improve my musicianship in general. Even though he is a drummer, he taught me performance concepts that can be applied on all kinds of instruments. His explanations are very clear and straightforward, and when I didn't understand something he would explain it another way. He's also very easy going, but pushes you to be better at your instrument. He always keeps a clear channel of communication open and always replies texts and emails. I highly recommend him!
