Robert is a wonderful and highly skilled artist and teacher. He is very patient with young and older students, which helps build confidence in the student. He is not judgemental and is very encouraging. His studio is a very low key." - Harold C

"My daughter and I take lessons with Robert and it's one of our favorite nights of the week. We've made more progress than I expected for two people that have never really touched instruments before. I would highly recommend - you'll be playing music before you know it! "

- Kristy W


"​My son has been taking bass and guitar lessons from Robert for a year now. The growth has been phenomenal! Robert has great patience and is a wonderful teacher. My son feels he has learned something new each week. The shows that Robert puts on for the kids are wonderful. Not only do they get to show off all their skills for a day they also give back to those in need. Such great lessons for these kids to learn."
