Robert has been teaching my 11-year old son electric guitar for the last few months and has done a brilliant job. My son loves his lessons and is inspired to practice and learn more. Robert works with my son's song choices and is amazingly patient and supportive. He is also an outstanding mentor for a young musician!

Robert is amazing! He is remarkably patient, encouraging, thoughtful, and generous. He is also quick to think of all kinds of fixes to advance your progress. He wears his encyclopedic knowledge lightly, and his lessons are always fun. I would recommend him with great enthusiasm for any stringed instrument!

Robert has been teaching my son for several years on acoustic and electric guitar! Robert is meticulous, patient, artistic and fun. He has been an amazing teacher. We would give him 10 stars if we could!

Robert is an amazing teacher. Both my children take from him and have improved dramatically since they’ve started working with him. He keeps my youngest focused and excited.

I’ve been taking lessons from Robert on and off for almost a decade. Out of all the people I’ve taken lessons from, Robert is by far the most patient, easygoing, and fun to work with. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to learn guitar.

Robert is such a good teacher. My guitar playing skill has increased greatly since I began with him a year ago. I really enjoy the online lessons. And he’s such a nice guy as well. I strongly recommend him to anyone wanting to learn how to play a fretted instrument!!

I am seventy years old and have absolutely no natural ability! Robert is patience and respectful, he always find something good about what I have learned. Very encouraging. My third lesson was the best as we both seemed more relaxed and get more comfortable. I like Robert.

I would definitely recommend Robert Martin as your music teacher. He is very patient and motivating. He has a great way of explaining techniques or concepts so you can easily understand them. He is very knowledgeable about many music genres and music theory. With his instruction, I have come along way in my guitar playing since I first starting taking lessons. Very nice man and great teacher.

Robert has been great to work with. He comes to our home weekly to work on bass guitar with our daughter. She has come so far in only a few months. They work on all aspect of the music- theory, finger placement, drills, and they pick some really fun music. He has let my daughter pick several songs she really likes so that she stays engaged. Meeting time been flexible which is a huge bonus! So much easier on all of us! Thanks Robert!

Robert has been working with my 9 year old daughter for about 2 years. She looks forward to her lessons with Robert every week and has learned a lot!
