I was 13 when I received my first bass and up through high school mostly played classic rock and punk. After high school I really got into Jazz and studied it for a few years before being accepted into CSU long beach music program. At CSU Long Beach I had the opportunity to perform with many different styles of jazz and many different group sizes and instrumentation. I also played in their orchestra and received classical training for the upright bass. Since graduating I have a working blues and rock band I gig with regularly all over LA county and a Rock Band that plays LA county also. Throughout the past 12 years since I started playing music I have written, arranged and put groups together to perform my original music. With this training and experience I can offer any student a stronger foundation for playing and performing their music but also help with creating their own music.

Hey Everyone! I’m Rob!
I’m an instructor with over 10 years of teaching experience. I studied writing and received my
B.A. at the University of Florida and received a Certificate with a concentration in Songwriting and Performance at Berklee School of Music in Boston.
I remember so fondly learning guitar when I was younger. I sucked! But I loved it so much I played all the time. And in no time I was playing songs on the radio that I loved. As a teacher, I completely understand the learning curve and have tricks to help you out in those difficult times. Lessons with me are constructed from scratch and tailored to exactly what you want to learn. If you are training to get into a college program, or preparing for a show, or just looking to learn the instrument, I will bring the same level of passion to every lesson, however will adapt my level intensity for what is comfortable for you. If you are interested in guitar, like, guitar, or love guitar, I would love to teach you and hopefully turn your interest into a like, your like into a love, and your love into your passion!

I have been sharing the joy of playing guitar with others since 1983. I attended Guitar Institute of Technology from September 1984 to September 1985 and still hold the title as the youngest female graduate at the school to this day. I later earned a Masters degree in teaching and learning to enhance my skills as a teacher in music and in other areas of education; but I learned some very valuable skills in my graduate program that give me an edge over teachers without an advanced degree. I have studied how people learn, how learning styles vary and how to identify and accommodate various learning styles in order to get the most from each individual student and teach each student in the most effective manner according to their particular learning style.
