About Randy M.

I'm a pianist-singer specialized in Western Art, jazz, and musical theatre idioms and I teach lessons in all classical and contemporary styles. I was conservatory-trained at Shenandoah University where I earned Dual-BM's in Performance and Jazz Studies, one of only a handful in its history to do so. All my life I've been performing, producing, teaching, and coaching all over the SoCal (CA) and DMV area (DC, MD, & VA).

Teacher's Studio

We feel so privileged to have Randy as an instructor for our daughter. Not only extremely proficient in many areas of music, Randy is also very skilled and proficient with his teaching. Our 12-yr- old daughter thanked us for finding Randy, saying that she has learned and progressed so much since he began teaching her. He helped ready her for her audition, and her confidence is growing. I can't recommend Randy highly enough.

My daughter Aliyah thought it went great!

My daughter has been taking voice & piano lessons with Randy for about a year now. Within a few months after switching to Randy, the improvement in both her piano playing & in her voice was very noticeable not only to us (her biased parents), but also to her music & performing arts teacher at school and others. Randy is an excellent teacher who knows how to bring the best out of his students. My daughter loves her lessons with Randy !
