About this pro

Patient, positive oriented expert instrumental lessons in all styles of music.

Lessons are highly individualized to meet the desires and learning style of each student. Generally, lessons are balanced between learning to read and understand music while learning to play songs, improvise with increasing skill development.

It's all about playing each note with as much feeling and beauty as possible.  As Beethoven said, "To play a wrong note is insignificant, to play without passion is unforgivable".

The Talmud says to find a teacher that wants to teach more than you want to learn.  Regardless of whom you select as a teacher, make sure they love to teach.

Learning music uses more of the brain than any other activity.  It makes people more intelligent, improves academic performance, and down the road abstract thinking.

I love applying the latest research in neuroscience and psychology of how we learn music and see my students enrich their lives.

Mostly it's about how much students appreciate how much they've improved and enriched their lives.

    I am pleased to recommend Robert (Bob) Comarow as a teacher of bass, guitar and piano. I am a working cabaret and Latin singer. I have known Bob for many years and have often observed him teaching lessons. A dedicated and gifted teacher, he is also an experienced performer who brings a real-world perspective to lessons. He is equally at home teaching all age groups and levels. He treats each student as an individual and tailors the lessons accordingly, helping his students achieve the results they seek. Bob is extremely patient and always has his students' best interests at heart. He instills in them a deep love and appreciation for music. He is versatile and familiar with many different styles of music, including classical, jazz, rock, folk, etc. When you are deciding on a teacher, it is very important to choose one with integrity, because you are entrusting your hopes and dreams to them. I can vouch for Bob's integrity. Music is not something he does; music is something he lives. So if you are selecting a teacher, either for yourself or someone else, I suggest you call Bob Comarow. You can thank me later!

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

I first get to know the student.  I learn about THEM.

I teach them how to practice efficiently, and introduce music at a pace they can have success.

Students learn to understand the underlying music theory, concepts and history of every piece they learn.

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

I started guitar lessons when I was 10.

I started bass lessons when I was 11.

I studied with many great teachers, including Lenny Frank, Pat Metheny, Gary Burton, Bob Cunningham.

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

Find a teacher that wants to teach more than you want to learn.   I put my heart and soul into my lessons and love teaching.

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

I start off by finding where they are and what they have been working on and find out their goals. 

Then an I find their unique leaning style.
