Welcome! My name is Rob and I am professional cellist, string music educator and conductor in the DC Area. I've been playing cello for over 20 years and I have taught various age groups in public school and private studio settings for over 10 years in Indiana, Philadelphia and Washington DC areas. I hold a Bachelor of Music Education from DePaul University (2010) and a Masters of Music in String Pedagogy from Temple University. I am certified K-12 instrumental/general music teacher in the state of Virginia. Currently, I am an orchestra director in Fairfax County Public Schools, I perform locally and teach from my home studio in Arlington. I love to engage my students (of all ages) in various ways and find how they learn the best. Most importantly, having fun and working through the learning process! My philosophy is that we never stop learning! I consider myself a student always learning from my own students! I look forward to offering my musical expertise and experience working with you to grow musically, technically and to reach your goals!!

Rob is a terrific teacher. He covers the fundamentals which my son really needed even though he'd been playing for several years before he started with Rob. Highly recommend.
AMAZING TEACHER! VERY CALM PERSON , WITH CLEAR EXPLICATIONS AND SUPER KIND! is easy to see how the special is, and he did that a very dificult experience (like the 1st day lesson in Chelo is) , like if were something easy to learn! Thanks Robert!!!
He is an awesome tutor, and I learn a lot from this lesson. Unlike my previous tutor, he uses his cello to demonstrate things. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to improve at playing the cello.
