About this pro

Hi, I'm Robbie - thanks for checking out Guitar Guru Lessons!

I've been teaching professionally for 15+ years and have extensive experience working with all ages, levels, and backgrounds. I teach locally in San Diego and also online to anywhere in the United States.

My teaching style is very practical and I do my best to customize our lessons to fit your specific goals, style preference, and level of play. Each lesson is unique to the individual; some students simply want to learn how to play their favorite songs, while others prefer working on technique, improvisation, or music theory. Regardless of your age or level of experience, our lessons will be fun, progressive and engaging.

Please see the FAQs section below for information on pricing and availability. I provide all lesson materials - all you need is your guitar and I’ll take care of the rest!

THANK YOU for your time and interest and please feel free to contact me with any questions. 

Best,

Robbie 🎸🙏

    Rob is an awesome guitar teacher and an awesome person! In the time I studied with him, he completely elevated my playing to another level! Our lessons always flowed easily and efficiently because Rob is very clear and articulate when explaining material. Also the material he gave me was always catered to my musical interest which made it really fun learning new and familiar songs. I would 100% recommend taking lessons with him.

    Rob's the man! I've been taking lessons with him for seven years now and I've learned more from him than I ever could have on my own. Rob has an extensive knowledge of different kinds of music and music theory. And if that's not enough, he also just happens to be one of the nicest dudes on the planet! I can say without a shadow of a doubt that he is by far the best teacher in this area, if not LA. You'd be doing your self a massive favor by taking lessons with him.

FAQs


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

NEW STUDENTS: 

Please contact me to discuss your musical goals and possible lesson times. If you have experience playing guitar, I will assess your level of play and we will go from there. If you are brand new to the guitar, I will guide you step by step and I guarantee you will be playing real music in a very short amount of time.


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

M.F.A. Jazz Guitar Performance - California Institute of the Arts.

B.M. Jazz Studies - San Diego State University.

In addition to my personal teaching business, I'm also a faculty member at West Coast Music Academy, in Santa Clarita, CA.


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

IN-HOME lessons are $30 for a half-hour OR $50 for one hour. 

ONLINE lessons are $35 for 45 minutes. 


How did you get started teaching?

I began teaching professionally while earning my B.M. from San Diego State University. I continued teaching during my time at California Institute of the Arts and I've been making a living as a music instructor ever since (15+ years).


What types of students have you worked with?

All ages, all levels, all styles.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I love creating music in small group jazz settings and also working with singers/rappers/producers/beat-makers in the studio. Aside from teaching, those are the two processes I’m involved in the most these days.


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

Find the best fit for your situation. Ask about recommendations from people in your community with experience giving or receiving lessons from professional teachers.
