Get to know Randy

Mr. Randolph Gardner Sr. has been involved in music for twenty-eight years. After exploring music at the age of three he began playing on an advanced level and received his first music position playing drums for the youth and young adult choir of The Good Shepherd Baptist Church located in Baltimore City at the age of five. Randolph continued his music study throughout elementary, middle and high school playing for the various instrumental music and vocal choral ensembles. Randolph attended the historic Frederick Douglass Senior High School in Baltimore, MD as a music major in The Cab Calloway Music Careers Program under the Direction of David C. Burton Jr. As a student he embarked on many great opportunities such as playing for Baltimore's own jazz singer the late great Ethel Ennis, playing for the late great Whit Williams and his jazz band, playing for world renowned saxophonist Gary Bartz, playing for Chris Calloway grandson of Baltimore's own the late great Cab Calloway, and being awarded the first recipient of the Baltimore Jazz Alliance Scholarship in 2009. 

Since high school Randolph entered the Baltimore City Public School System, where he returned to Frederick Douglass High School and obtained the position as the Assistant Band Director and Percussion Instructor for seven years, and one year as the Acting Band Director. Randolph has also established his own band "The RoseGold Experience" and had the privilege to play for the various Mayors and former President Barack Obama at the White House for the 2016 Mayors Conference. In the spring of 2019 Randolph crossed the burning sands and was birthed into the brotherhood of Mu Phi Sigma National Percussion Fraternity Inc. This musical journey has not only increased his love for music, but it has also increased his ambition to service various communities and educate others through music!
