Teaching since:

My name is Rob Foster. I teach violin and viola lessons in the KC area. My parents started me on the Suzuki Method at 3 years old. I have played and taught lots of Classical music but I am also passionate about other kinds of music as well. Rock, Blues, Jazz, Country, Funk and Improvisation. I have played in many bands playing all of those genres. We can go any direction you want. I usually use the Suzuki books for sight reading and classical practice/technique, and also do ear training exercises. Come check out my website for more information. Thanks.

Rob's passion for music is evident in his teaching. He is very professional and an excellent violin instructor. I can tell he truly wants his students to succeed. He is very patient and teaches in a way that is fun and involved. Very highly recommended.

Rob is a great violin teacher. He is very competent and knows how to break the steps down to help our 6-year old learn this complex instrument. We are excited to see her learn and grow!

Mr. Foster is thorough. He understands the difficulties beginning students face and he has a nice way of helping you to work through them.
