Classical Piano · In studio

Mr. Jones was not only my Assistant MD/pianist for numerous musical theatre productions, he was an invaluable music consultant for underscoring my dramatic productions in NYC. His extraordinary knowledge of classical repertoire, performance theory and practice, coupled with skillful keyboard technique, make [him] "the" go-to training resource in central FL. Like all great artist/teachers, Robert continues private study and consultation in a desire to never stop growing as as an artist/practitioner—enabling a his students an educational, intellectual, and artful keyboard training for all skill levels.
