Learn bass guitar with ease through the knowledge of an experienced guitar specialist
I work with beginning, intermediate, and advanced bass players, helping them to understand how music works, how to get the sounds they want from the bass guitar, and how all of it relates to music they like.
About Rob R.

I'm a professional bass player in Austin Texas, the Live Music Capital of the World. At one time or another I've played just about every style of music, and I have more than a decade of teaching experience. I love 'opening doors' for students, helping them understand how music works and how they can sound better than ever. I graduated from B.I.T. in Los Angeles and I have thousands of hours of teaching, gigging, and recording experience. I'll share that experience with you! *** Lesson Details *** I like to use real music to show how technical concepts work. Once I've gotten to know you and your musical goals and preferences, I'll point you towards the knowledge you need, and show you how that knowledge works in the music you like. *** Studio Equipment *** Music room: recording equipment, bass, amp, chairs, music stands, additional seating for parents. *** Specialties *** Theory, fingerstyle, thumb, reading notation & chord symbols, blues, country, funk, jazz, rock, soul.

Rob has been teaching my son who is a beginner bass guitar player. Rob has been super accommodating and I appreciate his feedback after each lesson. There is usually something to practice on for the next lesson and he is also open for questions during the week.

Rob will meet you where you are and guide you to where you are trying to go. He is extremely knowledgeable, accommodating, and encouraging. I play left-handed, and he is the first teacher to not hassle or try to sway me to be anything but me. He has been playing 40+ years, and proven his commitment through study which culminated in graduating from the Bass Institute in Los Angeles. He brings a level of both scholastic and practical knowledge which is well worth the price of admission. Rob is going to provide a level of knowledge and personalized coursework that is absolutely not going to be had elsewhere. Due to my location, we conduct the lessons online. I will say it has not been a hinderance. I started lessons with tempered expectations, but Rob has continually gone above and beyond. Anybody looking to deep-dive into the culture, craft, and practice of playing bass would be extremely well served to seek out Rob.

Great teacher! We went over the different chords and he picked out a song I liked to go over together and made me some sheet music with the fret positions labeled for each note. He was patient and gave me room to fix my own mistakes.
