Knowledgeable and great communication

Rob has a tremendous amount of musical knowledge, and does a great job communicating with my 12 year old son. My son has studied classical piano for years and is now looking to transition to popular music, and Rob is patiently guiding him through that process. My son is really enjoying working with Rob!

Thanks again to Rob

Another great session with Rob. Third lesson for us and I feel I’m making great progress. Very appreciative of his time and wisdom!

Danny, 4 lessons with Rob

Thanks, Rob!

Rob is helping me master piano and music theory. His experience + knowledge are exactly what I hoped for. I'm looking to take my production to the next level. I've called on Rob to help me out! Can't wait for the next lesson.

Great tutor!

The learning experience is great. I am an adult learner, formally learning music for the first time. Rob is a friendly, patient, helpful and overall a great piano teacher. Definitely recommended!

The personal touch

Another great session with a talented musician and teacher! I’m looking forward the next class. Thanks for your patience and understanding of what I’m trying to accomplish.

Adaptable and relatable

Rob listened to what I want to learn and quickly molded a lesson plan around it. As the first lesson progressed he found out more about what I knew and quickly moved through it so we could step to the next part. Something I really appreciate. I already have my next class scheduled and I am looking forward to it and many more!

Excellent!!!

Great tutor ever! My 6 years old girl did not give any response to Rob in her first class. Rob is very patient with my shy kids. His classes are fun and interesting. Now both of my girls love Rob's piano class.

Great communicator with a flexible approach.

First, Rob really knows his stuff. But beyond that, his approach with me has been very flexible and dynamic. It isn't based on rigid series of learning steps. It's an individualized approach that works because he's really good at listening and explaining and is willing to let my questions and the things I want to learn about serve as the guide to his instruction. I'm looking forward to more lessons with Rob -- he's a keeper.

Knowledgable, flexible, and skilled teacher

Rob is a really versatile teacher with the ability to tackle all different kinds of goals. He got a sense of what I'd been working on on my own, then tailored some ideas to where I wanted to work toward. He's an enthusiastic presence and clearly cares about his students.
