About Bob

I have 35 years experience teaching acoustic guitar. I am an expert teacher of beginning and intermediate students of all ages. I have a unique, proven method that focuses on not only getting the student playing the music he/she loves(no matter what style), but also on establishing basics and on the development of playing that will last a lifetime.

I grew up teaching music to my brothers, and my approach has remained supportive, respectful and fun.
Believe me when I say that I can teach you to play guitar, and to love music, whether you practice or not. No pressure, but always consistency and follow-through. First-things-first quickly results in students who practice because they want to--because they are really creating music! Several of my students write their own songs, and even form bands that play at kids-age venues.

I have an extensive array of accomplishments, including a professional CD, 1000 original songs,lead guitar, lead vocals, and lead songwriting for my own band. Also,I am a historian of American and English folk music. I am competent as well on the harmonica, drums, and keyboard/piano.

Music is all I do. I live and breathe it. I play around Portland regularly and look forward to teaching your child, teen or you. I am happy to consent to any request for a background check if asked.

Kind regards,
Bob/Professional Musician and Music Teacher
