About Randy Sauer of Randy’s Music Jam
Randy was born and raised in Norton, KS where he was involved music all through school. Eventually this led him to Fort Hays State University where he earned a Bachelors Degree in Music Education and later a Masters Degree with an emphasis in music composition and recording.
Randy has taught music since 1990. After many years of being mainly a grades 5-12 band director Randy began teaching elementary music and found he enjoyed teaching this level. Randy started using his composition skills to write music for elementary classes and found the kids loved his original music. This is where the beginnings of the "Randy's Music Jam" show started.
Randy's Music Jam has been performing since 2008 playing throughout Kansas, Nebraska and Oklahoma. Randy lives in Hays Kansas with his wife, Niki, and also teaches K-6 Elementary Music. Randy's origianal music won Best Children's Song of the Year from the Indie Music Channel, based out of Hollywood, in 2014 and 2015. In 2014 Randy was also awarded Children's Songwriter of the Year.
A live “Randy’s Music Jam” show is a show for the entire family—an entertaining show with a variety of styles, from traditional kids music, to rock, to acoustic, and upbeat pop dance music. Kids will love is his energy, fun songs, and the variety of instruments he plays, including ukulele, all sorts of hand percussion, and guitar. Kids love being active participants in songs, and the audience is as much a part of the show as Randy.
