About this pro

I’ve been playing guitar and bass professionally for 30+ years on both coasts. If you already play rhythm and want to learn how to solo, I can help you. If you’re a beginner, I will skew the lessons toward music that you like to make it more interesting and rewarding.

    I took guitar lessons from Mr. Traegler for two years and I looked forward to every lesson. He made it fun to learn and he taught me to play songs I liked. He was funny and taught in a way that was easy to understand and practice. My lessons were something I looked forward to every week.

    I learned so much from Rob. He makes the lessons interesting by teaching songs that I liked as well as helping me work on my vocals. He even supplied audio backing tracks of bass and drums so I could practice at home!


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I meet with the student and find out their musical interests and what level of guitar player they aspire to be.Different people learn at different speeds, so I can easily adapt to their learning style.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Ive been playing guitar, piano and bass since I was 16 and have played in numerous successful club and wedding bands.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

On the East Coast I was getting $40 an hour, $25 for a half hour. I prefer hour lessons because a half hour just goes by too quickly.

How did you get started teaching?

I’m an English teacher, so I began giving lessons after school around 2001.

What types of students have you worked with?

i have worked mostly with middle and high school students.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Seeing John Mayer live in Las Vegas.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Find a teacher who teaches chords first so you’ll be playing songs almost immediately. Many teachers start off teaching notes which takes forever. If you’re not playing a song after a Month , move on.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Think about how serious you are about it. Do you want to play in a band or just by yourself?
