About this pro

**we are happy to announce we are offering In-person lessons again! Rob and the Staff have been fully vaccinated and ready to meet you for lessons. ONLINE Lessons are definitely Still offered!**

I am a professional musician and music educator for 20+ years and Berklee College of Music alum in Jazz & Emerson College alum in Musical Theater. 

Currently I work in various capacities of pianist/arranger/music director with performers from American Idol, Post Modern Jukebox, Wicked & Celtic Woman as well as producers of Broadway musicals such as American Idiot & Book of Mormon, and play keyboards for international world music singer Kouros.  I also vocal coach for musicals at Cal State LA. 

My experience will not only help you on your instrument but to guide and enrich your life as a musician.  

Each lesson is focused on the student's needs to progress musically & to also have fun with what they would like to learn beyond the basics of piano & music theory.

Lessons can be given in your home, mine or via Skype. I am centrally located in the San Fernando Valley.

Please check out my growing my list of reviews here on Thumbtack, Yelp & 

I look forward to helping you reach your next level of music.





Every opportunity I have to work as a musician is a gift. Musicians 'play' music, Actors perform in 'plays'. How can we call it work? A life in the arts, and being able to share that with others is the most rewarding profession anyone could ask for.

    Rob is lovely! He is great with my kids they enjoy his teaching style which really focuses on the individual child’s interests and this motivates them to learn and have fun at the same time! He also is a great at providing detailed information on how the kids are doing which helps to see how they are progressing from a parents perspective. BIG fans! Thanks Rob!

    5 Stars for Rob!! I'm a guitarist, and I have been performing with Rob consistently for five years. He is the leader of the group and a fantastic one. We take studio recordings that are often complex and have to to recreate them in a live setting for a small band. Rob is great at figuring out how to accomplish this and creates clear, easy to follow charts. He communicates well and knows how make the band sound its best. So in my experience, his teaching abilities are on point. He is funny, kind, talented and a joy to work with. I recommend him to you highly!! :)

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

When I first meet with a new student it's important to see where they are at in their musical studies so we can come up with a plan for progressing forward. No two students are on the same level or learn in the same way.  I like to discuss goals and styles of music the student has an interest in. Workbooks are a great foundation but it's not going to teach you all the songs and pieces you would like to learn.

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

Berklee College of Music- Jazz piano, film scoring, audio engineering
