By Rob F. - Baltimore Piano Teacher
Hi there! I’m Rob F. and I teach piano lessons in Baltimore, Maryland. I am originally from White Plains, New York, and have just recently moved to Baltimore to explore its excellent music scene. While there are great differences between these two music scenes, I have found several similarities that both cities share.
As the keyboardist and songwriter of a jazz-fusion/ hip-hop group called Funk Friday, I have had the opportunity to discover Baltimore’s music scene. We originated from Goucher College in Towson, Maryland, playing shows at different events at the college. Soon enough, we began performing at different venues in Baltimore; some being small restaurants where spoken-word poetry was recited over an improvised song, and other venues where there were three to five different bands playing for an hour each on a large stage. For certain shows, we would team-up with a DJ/ video editor who would project a montage of images and movie clips that would swirl and change constantly as we played our songs. We have also collaborated with other artists for performances where three or four different singer/ rappers would sing over top of our original material or our arrangements of their songs.
In New York, I have also collaborated with various musicians, whether at a weekly open mic show or in a studio setting where I am recording a guitarist or rapper. Last summer, I was the keyboardist for a group called Rayce, playing at a variety of different open mic shows in White Plains with aspirations to play shows in New York City. I quickly found that it is extremely difficult and competitive to break into New York City’s music scene, as some venues receive over a hundred emails a week from bands that are trying to play one show at their venue.
Aside from teaching pianos lessons in Baltimore and performing live with my group, I have been working with a rapper on songs that rely on my knowledge of recording techniques. We have recently been sharing these recordings with friends and professionals in the music industry. It has been a lot of fun to meet and perform with an array of different musicians in Baltimore and New York, each with their own definitive style. It is their styles that have inspired me and brought me to where I am today, as a music teacher who hopes to bring inspiration to you someday. Sign up for piano lessons in Baltimore and let’s make music together!
My love for the piano started at the age of thirteen. I majored in Music Education at Frostburg State University, and studied piano under various professors. I have seven years experience in teaching children and adults the piano. I hope to convey a love of music during lessons. Playing the piano shouldn't be stressful. It should be rewarding, relaxing, and fun.
I have been teaching for over 10 years and work with all ages and skill levels. I cater my lessons to meet the individual goals and needs of the student and I strive to give students a strong musical foundation while nurturing their unique musical style and interests.
I believe that strong technique and basic musical knowledge are both important in creating well rounded musicians and am mindful to incorporate both technical skills and music theory into each of my lessons.
I have taught all ages and all levels for over 20 years. You will quickly learn to read music and be able to play easier Bach and Beethoven pieces within a few months with reasonable practicing. I will also teach you how music is organized so that you can better understand the theory behind each piece to help you learn faster
I can teach you to play piano in a mindful, body-conscious way (which I find more relaxing and fulfilling). My specialties include any/all of the following: beginner/intermediate piano (any style, including classical and pop/jazz), teaching music reading/theory, learning to playing by ear/with chords, accompanying oneself while singing, learning to arrange/write music and working with individual/special needs.
Though I am not a concert pianist/accompanist by trade, I have 12 years of piano teaching experience, and have worked steadily as a singer-songwriter and in pop, rock and variety bands (as a keyboard player).
