Anyone can learn how to play the piano — let me show you.
Even though guitar is my major instrument, I had to play piano all through college as part of my music degree. Therefore, I can help someone learn to play the piano from beginning to intermediate level.
About Robert C.

Robert began playing guitar in Houston, Texas at the age of 12. It was not long before he began playing in bands and played his first professional gig at age 17. Robert performed in and around the Houston area for five years before deciding to study music on the college level. He attended the University of North Texas and later attended Musicians Institute. While a student at MI, Robert was given the Outstanding Student of the Year Award for 1991-'92. Robert began teaching at MI in the guitar school (GIT) in 1993. He has played with Bo Diddley, Tim Bogert, Chevy Chase, Floyd Radford, Deacon Jones, Joe Houston and countless others. He has performed for Buddy Ebson and Chevy Chase and has partied with the Monkees. In addition to playing guitar Robert also plays and teaches bass guitar and piano. *** Lesson Details *** Robert teaches serious beginners from ages 5-99. He can also help intermediate, advanced students and pro players fine tune their skills and learn to play the music they hear. His laid back but structured approach has helped many of his students over the years become solid musicians and attain their musical goals. Robert uses a combination of his own teaching materials combined with the best of what he has learned over the years studying with countless world class teachers and players. With his over 20 years of teaching experience he is able to synthesize all this knowledge and make it easily accessible to all of his students. Robert teaches a variety of styles which include blues, classic rock, R&B, pop, country and jazz. All lessons are tailored to the individual student's interests and goals. In addition to this Robert makes his lessons fun too!

Robert is the best guitar teacher I have ever see or had. He is patient, knowledgeable, and most importantly my progress was unmatched with Rob. Learn from Rob and surprise yourself with what he helps to unearth within you.

Robert is very nice and polite. I think the lesson was sufficient for the first lesson. He gave me homework to work on the D, G, and C chords. We went over the right hand numbering PIMA. I need to determine what my goals are in playing the guitar.
