About this pro

I've played guitar since 1964 and have won several notable contests.  My band won a tri-state battle of the bands which included a recording contract.  The song reached #7 on WEBC's top 40.  Currently I was the 1st place winner in Steve Vai's "Best in Shred" contest here in Las Vegas. It's an extensive resume.  Studied with jazz guitar guru Ted Greene, etc.

I've taught guitar off and on since college and full time now for several years. I've always loved the guitar and all styles of music.  I find teaching very rewarding and several of my students have continued their music to this day.  I still stay in touch with several of them.

    I've been working with Bob for several years. Knowing very little about music, Bob was able to help me through the basics and now we're progressing to more advanced methods. Bob is great to work with for this old man learning to play blues guitar. He's extremely knowledgeable and explains what you need to know with sufficient detail. And, he's very patient as you progress. I highly recommend Bob to be your guitar guru.

    Has a deep knowledge of guitar that will give you the real incite into guitar playing to help you get into the next level.

    Been with Bob for 2 years now, I’ve learned a ton! He is very knowledgeable and patient with students, able to teach important fundamentals while still making lessons fun. 10/10 would shred any time

    Been taking lessons with Bob since 2012. He wasn’t focused on any particular style and asked what I wanted to learn and where I would like to end up. I cannot read music and Bob did not make that important instead introducing me to tabs. He is a very patient instructor, I am learning at age 50, and he patiently worked with me that first song. Since then we have learned 16+ songs and I am having more fun than ever. Would highly recommend Bob to anyone wanting to learn guitar. Electric or acoustic.



FAQs


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

It's whatever I feel the student wants and needs.  If they're a beginner and not sure I'll start them with chords and maybe some Beatles tunes.  If they like lead and want to improvize blues it's the pentatonic.  If it's theory we start with the Major scale, etc.  Notation...and so forth. 


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

I graduated the Ted Greene school of Chord Chemistry.  I've got a lot of theory.
