Rob B.

Austin, TX

About Rob

I have been playing guitar since August 1992. I cut my teeth on the alternative music that was popular at the time (Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, Nirvana) but soon began to focus on earlier movements, specifically the playing styles and mindsets of Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, and Eric Clapton. I formed a band in 1996 and began gigging in Austin and throughout Texas. During this time, I immersed myself in jazz and did everything I could to bring the sonic palettes of Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, and Miles Davis into my playing, even taking up saxophone and piano in order to better
understand what they were doing.

I eventually moved back to my hometown of Lubbock, where I graduated from Texas Tech University with a BA in English and a minor in Music, having played guitar and saxophone in the Jazz Band in addition to taking several classes in theory. During this time, I was giving private lessons in Lubbock and setting up arts education programs at the Lubbock Boys & Girls Club and The Buddy Holly Center. Since then, I have started a family and begun writing fiction, both of which have given me a much wider spectrum through which to channel my songwriting.

*** Lesson Details ***
These are your lessons. I see my role as being nothing more than helping you get to the place that you want to be, in whatever fashion and at whatever pace that you set. While it would be disingenuous to say that I don't take pride in watching my students succeed, I believe that the instructor should only be as concerned with measurable results as the student. If the student wants to learn three scales and two songs every week, then it's the instructor's responsibility to have those ready to go, along with a few suggestions for additional work. If the student wants to learn a few chords and then spend ten minutes talking about Led Zeppelin, it's their dollar and their time to spend however they wish.

All of which to say, my teaching style varies dramatically from student to student. It can be laid-back, strict, calm, or rapid-fire, depending on the learning environment that the student prefers. My experience is that this approach leads to the greatest level of student satisfaction, which I consider to be of the utmost importance.

*** Studio Equipment ***
1 Paul Reed Smith, 1 Fender Stratocaster, 1 Jasmine Takamine 12-string, 1 Alvarez acoustic 12-string, 1 Jasmine Takamine 6-string, 1 Montana electric/acoustic bass, 1 '75 Gibson SG electric bass, 1 88-key electric piano, 100-watt Fender Twin tube amp, 35-watt Mesa-Boogie solid-state amp, 1 Fender bass, 1 Yamaha tenor saxophone

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have an acoustic guitar and I could provide one for the student, though he or she is not going to get very far without one to spend hours practicing on outside of the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I'm best at teaching students music what they want to learn. I specialize in rock, blues, beginning to intermediate jazz, songwriting, and music theory in general.

I learned a lot in a short amount of time

Rob is an incredible guitar player who also has the ability to teach others what he knows. He taught me exactly what I requested and then some... in a very short period of time. I'd highly recommend Rob to anyone wanting to learn to play or simply needing to improve. He's great.

Lillian is patient, kind, positive, and careful to combine theory with practical teaching. As an older student, just learning piano, I learned more from her in one lesson than the five lessons I took before. She is excellent. I have hope now that I can learn piano.

Lillian has been a very patient, understanding instructor for this older student who could no longer read notes. She makes learning to play again a fun lesson each time.

Brandon C.

Austin, TX

About Brandon

Brandon has been surrounded by music since a young age, having both parents as musicians. Brandon began his musical carrier playing the trumpet eventually branching out to piano, a little violin, composing, and conducting. He attended the University of Central Florida where he received a BA and MA in composition and conducting respectively.

While in Orlando, Brandon worked as a part of the A Gift for Music program teaching beginning violin to inner-city elementary school children. He was also the conductor of the A Gift for Music Core Orchestra, a group of very talented young string stude
nts. Brandon was also the Brass Instructor for a local Jr./Sr. High School where he taught trumpet lessons, coached brass ensembles, and accompanied students on the piano. On top of this Brandon also had a small studio in the area.

Currently Brandon is a graduate student at the University of Texas in Austin where he is studying composition.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher I find the most important thing is to make sure the student has fun making music. I realize that everyone is different and I try to cater to the needs of the individual while still making sure that there is advancement in technique and musicianship. It is also a goal of mine to make sure that every students learns to practice without having someone ask them to do it.

I believe it is important to have a strong foundation when playing music. If that foundation is there it is easier to have fun making music and far less likely for a student to fail. For beginners I generally start with basic technique and gradually shift into playing pieces. If a student has been playing for a while, I will find out where they are in their musical journey and take it from there. I also try to focus on developing musicianship and individuality. I can not stress how important it is to not only have fun but to practice. It takes a great deal of dedication and effort to become a good musician.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide some music and small things like the occasional rosin or valve oil. I can also help students find rental venues for instruments. I would expect the students to have their own instrument/s and material to properly take care of the instrument. I would also expect them to keep the music we are currently working on with them.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical music though I can teach popular music and basic improvisation. I try to focus on expression and technique with students.

Excellent lesson., Ryan is very professional, explaining the purpose of each assignment, having a notebook for the instructions, and focusing on the student's desires during the lesson. I am very excited by his enthusiasm and look forward to my lessons. I couldn't wait to practice after he left, even succeeding at part of the assignment that I had doubts I could complete.
