About Rob
Hey Everyone! I’m Rob!
I’m an instructor with over 13 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 College 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! Robert is a Certified
Music Teacher in 91604

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons with me are constructed entirely around the focus of the student. I am here to help you achieve your goals!

If you want to learn how to be a guitar shredder, lessons will include playing techniques from the guitar players you want to play like.
If you want to learn to be a great acoustic player, we will go over picking and strumming techniques as well as acoustic chord structures.

If you are more interested in becoming a songwriter, lessons will posses education in chord structuring, melody and lyric writing, interval training, and general education in music theory.

Of course the basics of music theory, and general guitar technique are essential to becoming a great player and will be the focus for all students at the beginning level.

Whatever it is you want to learn about guitar, I am here for you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Guitars. Amp. Microphone. Pro-Tools Recording Software. Full weighted Electric Keyboard. Seating available for parents. Street parking available.

*** Travel Equipment ***
My guitar, my computer (if necessary), and all other basic tools needed.. such as my copy of the course work. Students should be expected to have an amp, if they so desire (for electric) and should consider buying a copy of the curriculum recommended for practice at home.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in contemporary music especially pop,rock, blues, r&b, and jazz (I have extensive music theory knowledge from playing in big band jazz bands in high school and college, as well as playing in combos frequently)

I met Robby in college and he was a really good guitar player. I wanted to learn from him as much as I could. He actually took the time to set me up with lessons and gave me very specific stuff to practice. He would check in with me every couple weeks and see if I had any questions and how I was doing. I moved and had to stop lessons for a year or two. A few years later I called him and asked to get together for a couple lessons. He was blown away at how much I improved and was so genuinely happy for me. We still talk every week and if I ever have a guitar question I call him. He's my friend, and he's gonna be a famous guitar player some day.

I started learning from Rob 5 years ago. I didn't think he'd want to spend time teaching me because I didn't know anything about guitar and he was so good. I was so wrong! Since our first lesson, he treated me like a friend, and 5 years later and we are great friends. I started off being able to play a couple notes, and now I can pay solos and songs and learn just about anything I want! Thanks Rob! Take Lessons from this guy! He's the Best!

My brother told me he found this great guitar teacher, and I was skeptical because he has been playing guitar for a long time and has never really sounded good. Two weeks after he mentioned him, all of the sudden he didn't suck any more. He was actually kinda good. So I tried a lesson with him and Wow! Within my first lesson I was already able to play a song! I can't afford lessons since I'm in school right now, but my brother still takes lessons with him. Even though I no longer take lessons with him I still call Rob and ask him questions about guitar all of the time, and he always makes time for me. I don't know where my brother or I would be without him. Great Teacher. Great Friend.

Tom is a great Hebrew teacher. He really took the time to make sure I understood the material and I was shocked at how fast I was able to work through what seemed like daunting material. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone.

About Clare
After two years working as a translator/interpreter for a local government office in Kochi, Japan, I moved back to the US last year. Since then, I have been a private teacher of Japanese for all ages, currently from age 7 to mid-40s. I love to be a witness when my students suddenly "get" something new we've been working on for a while. Japanese is a fascinating, beautiful, and complicated language, and it's exciting to be a partner in my students' achievements and success!

I am highly experienced in teaching middle school and high school age students--including my own kids, whom I homeschool. My first visit to Japan was a semester study abroad in my senior year of high school, so I can give ample advice to students who are preparing to go to Japan. Along with my on-the-ground experience living and working in Japan in a fast-paced and hig
h-stakes environment, I hold an M.A. in Japanese and N1 (highest level) certification on the Japanese Language Proficiency Test. Native Japanese speakers have complimented me on my native-like pronunciation and syntax.

Contact me any time for more information or to set up your first lessons!

Our son has always been interested in foreign languages. He began teaching him self Japanese in early 2014. He asked us to help him locate a tutor so he could accelerate his learning. We started working with Claire in late 2016 at the age of 14. It has worked out great! She is patient, professional and organized. She keeps us appraised of his progress. We would highly recommend her for anyone interested in learning how to read write and speak Japanese! Ron and Anne L . , Belchertown , MA

Clare has a perfect balance for a homeschool instructor. Half "strict" teacher and half fun innovator we have found her balance of worksheets/homework along with Youtube videos to watch and Japanese games to play to be just what we need. My boys are 8 and 10. The 10 yr old actually has a learning disability and he does better in Japanese than with some structures in English!!
