"Dear Mr. Hartman,Thank you for being a wonderful piano teacher to Alex, Josh and Jake for over 8 years.
You are not just a teacher but a friend and a mentor to them. Every week you greet them with a bright smile and make playing piano fun. You didn't just teach them how to play notes but also helped to cultivate their passion for music. Kids look forward to piano lessons with you. I'm sure that one day when they become parents themselves, they will look back and fondly remember Mondays with Mr. Hartman."
"Randall Hartman performs piano with ease and enjoyment....a strong rhythmic sense and a very natural technical facility...his recitals were played with real musical excitement and flair."
C. Nolan Huizenga A.Mus.D., U. of Mich.
Head of Keyboard Dept., Prof. of Piano
"Randall Hartman's pianism is quite impressive and his musicality infectious."
Alexander Fiorillo, Prof. of Piano
"Mr. Hartman is an intelligent musician... his approach to teaching was articulate and commanding."

"This was a brilliant recital. Randall Hartman has superb technique and total control which he displays with ease and a seemingly relaxed naturalness of motion."
Professor of Music
"Mr. Hartman has good fingers, good memory and musically clear mental picture. The Beethoven sounded like a masterpiece in his hands, it was a pleasure to hear. The Brahms was very passionate and emotionally penetrating, almost disturbing in its dramatic course. The Rhapsody was excellent both emotionally, architectonically and technically, this was one of the better performances of this piece that I can remember. The Rachmaninoff was imbued with tantalizing nostalgia so characteristic of the composer's moodiness, and projected beautifully by Randall Hartman."
Prof. of Piano
"I know one of his current students and have seen the progress over the years, not only in technical ability but for love of music. This is a hard thing to balance as an artist and teacher, but one which Randall strives hard to maintain. Randall is comfortable in many styles of music such as jazz, classical, and pop. This demonstrates his versatility and dedication to his craft."
