Music Lessons

Interested in starting a new hobby, dusting off an instrument that's been buried in the closet, or taking your playing to the next level? Would you like to be able to join a band, a session, or an open mic? Rob has over a decade of teaching experience to help you get there. Focus your study on any of the following: playing rhythm, playing lead, improvisation, reading music, music theory, composition & songwriting, basic instrument maintenance, and more!
