    I feel encouraged and confident. Robert is a professional and really knows what he's doing. The future is exciting

  • Liz Bodell

    Rob has been a great fit for my boys ages 12 and 9. He very quickly determined their levels and helped them to feel proud of where they are and where they're going as individuals. He's a great teacher!



FAQs


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

I want to get to know a student and their skill set first, and also really understand their goals in learning music. In this way I can tailor my training to their needs and help each student with personalized lessons that get them where they want to go musically.


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

I hold a degree in music performance (percussion) and physics from UW Eau Claire and have studied piano and percussion from the age of 8.

I've had the pleasure to study with Jeff Crowell,  Steve Schick, Gregg Lohman (drummer for Taylor Swift, Kellie Pickler, and more), Patti Cudd (of Zeitgeist) and many other fantastic artists.

Ive worked as a sound engineer, sound designer and mixing engineer for the last 18 years.


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

$25 per 30 minute lesson


How did you get started teaching?

My first teaching gig was 15 years ago and I haven't stopped sharing and exploring the world of music since!


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students from the age of 9 to 55, at all levels from beginner to advanced.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

The Cedar Cultural Center's online event streams have been great this past year!


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

Always ask about what method or book series the teacher uses when starting a beginner student.

Not all methods are equal, and while many are quite good, several have serious shortcomings that hamper student growth in the long term.
