Randy Klein

I am an award winning pianist/composer, specializing in teaching piano, songwriting, jazz improvisation and the business of music.
Teaching Philosophy

Music is a cumulatively learned art form, 'what you learn from the music you are working on is what you bring to your next piece. I give honest, clear, concise evaluations. I’m a cheerleader and encouraging. I want you to learn, to become musical, to find your own voice. My experience gives me an objectivity toward the craft that helps you grow. I enjoy working with students of all levels, my love for the process is what I share with you.
