I learned a lot from these music lessons, and I have come a long way from when I first started taking lessons. I can really notice the improvement, in the way I sound and the advanced techniques I am using to play. Furthermore, Rob is a very kind and patient teacher, who will do whatever it takes to help his students succeed. I would recommend taking lessons from Rob to any level guitar player, who wants to learn how to play or improve his/her knowledge of music.

My son really enjoys learning and playing guitar with Mr.Robert Barner. He is always keen for the next session which says much about the teacher. Highly recommended Mr. Rob for anyone who wants to learn guitar.

Rob is a great teacher, lots of experience, very patient and so approachable. He plays quite a few instruments, reads and write music. As a past student of Rob, I recommend him highly for anyone who is serious about learning to play the bass, guitar and piano.
