Randy marched with the Santa Clara Vanguard Drum and Bugle Corps in the mid 90’s where he played trumpet and has enjoyed watching his oldest daughter, Madison, march this past year (2018) with SCV as well.
Randy’s philosophy of music is that just about everyone in the world is touched or inspired by one or more genres of music. For students of music, and those who actively and continuously participate in its performance and development, it has an even deeper impact. This impact can be so profound that they will always remember the effect that music has had on them for the remainder of their lives. Music should teach students to develop a basic, emotional, and creative understanding of music and art, teach them how to act and perform as professionals in the working world, allow them to feel proud of what they have accomplished and to challenge them on a daily basis to help them understand who they are and what truly inspires them.
Randy currently lives in Murrieta, CA with his wife Erin and their three kids Madison, Danzie and Carson.
