I started playing violin at 3 years old. Wichita State University gave me the opportunity to get my Music Ed degree and start teaching lessons. I have taken over 500 lessons myself and played in many heavy gigging bands playing gigs almost every weekend. Improvising, Country, Jazz, and Rock are my specialties but I have played lots of Blues, Funk, and Latin jazz as well.

Initially I was a complete beginner. I've been studying with Rob for a couple of months now. I think I'm making good progress and certainly a lot of that is Rob's doing. Very personable and flexible, he's really taught me a lot and is really good at teaching in a way that has me progressing steadily and not being overwhelmed by such a challenging instrument.

Identified many of my errors right away, has given instruction on how to correct. Have noticed definite improvement each week, and given new skills each week to practice .(I'm not likely to pass this pattern in the near future!)

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.

Experience

Self-Employed

I usually take my students through the Suzuki books. In my opinion the classical method is the best way for new students to learn technique and the attention to detail that the violin or viola requires. When the student is ready I also am very comfortable going outside classical music with them and working on improvising or fiddle or rock or whatever as well.
