I perform in the band Xotic Yeyo as the bass player. We are a popular band in Florida and perform all over the state. We have released an EP and Album, and depending on when you are reading this, we are either about to, or have just released our latest single. All of this can be found on spotify and all other streaming services.

I also served as the Musical Director at School of Rock Boca Raton and shepherded the school through it's opening. I taught guitar, bass, drums and vocals to many of the school's current top students and also hired many of the instructors currently serving at School of Rock. I also led several band classes, where I molded a group of students into a band and readied them for live performances.

I am also an experienced sound engineer and producer, having several songwriting credits in T-Pain's stable of artists. Currently I own a recording studio in Boca Raton where I occasionally will record projects that really excite me.

In addition to that, I run a concert promotion company, where I organize live events and one-day music festivals throughout the Florida Treasure Coast.

My knowledge of music is very hands on, I know how to fully service any of the instruments I own and also much of the production gear. I know the nuances of different instruments and how that can affect the sound one might be looking for.

With me as your teacher, you will not only know the how, you will also know the why.

Rod is a knowledgeable, energetic and fun teacher who imparts good techniques and at the same time instills a lifelong appreciation of music. He is professional and responsive yet warm in his communication style. I would certainly recommend him to any one who is a beginner or wants to continue learning .

Incredible lessons from this groovy guy. He taught me things about the bass I didn't event know where possible. He showed me how the notes relate to each other and I was playing walking bass lines in no time!

Rod got me from zero experience playing guitar to soloing in 6 months! I was so amazed and didn't think it was possible. He did make me practice a lot, but he was right, it made a huge difference.

If you're a beginner, I cannot recommend a better instructor.

Ever since I was small I loved sing, but was afraid to let my voice be heard. Even till recently I found it challeging to sing in front of others, but since I got lessons from Rod I feel more confident. He taught me new techniques and gave me fresh inspiration, I could not be happier. Feel so much ligther and open, and my songs sound so much better. Thanks Rod! You helped me relight this candle, so grateful.

I worked with Rod during a recording session. I was amazed that by making small adjustments and following some subtle pointers, I sounded so much better! His tips and tricks really helped make the recording so much better. I even impressed myself!
