Introduction: We are happy to offer in person lessons once again for local to Los Angeles students! Non local residents can still receive lessons via Zoom & other video platforms. I am a professional musician and music educator for 20+ years and Berklee College of Music alum in Jazz & Emerson College alum in Musical Theater. Currently I work in various capacities of pianist/arranger/music director with performers from American Idol, Post Modern Jukebox , Celtic Woman. Broadway stars of Wicked & Dream Girls (West End production), as well as producers of Broadway musicals such as American Idiot & Book of Mormon. I also play keyboards for international world music singer Kouros and vocal coach for musicals at Cal State LA. My experience will not only help you on your instrument but to guide and enrich your life as a musician. Each lesson is focused on the student's needs to progress musically & to also have fun with what they would like to learn beyond the basics of piano & music theory. Please check out my growing my list of reviews here on Thumbtack and on my personal website. I look forward to helping you reach your next level of music.

Rob has been a great piano teacher. He is very flexible with your goals and helpful in guiding you in the right direction musically. He is patient and thorough and I would definitely recommend him if you are trying to improve your piano skills at any level.

Piano Lessons

My wife and I had a "bake off" of sorts with a few teachers for our 2 children. Rob was no-contest selected by both! He's patient with them, understands what they'd like to learn (eventually). He's exactly the kind of teacher I want for my kids so they'll enjoy music and look forward to their next lesson.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Lessons are $50 for a single one hour lesson, $40 for a 45 minute lesson & $30 for a half hour.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to find what interests a student & gear the lessons toward what will keep them engaged and enthused to learn piano & music. My Pedagogical approach is to not only teach you the instrument but become a well rounded musician whether you are learning to become a professional or play for fun. Music is the language of the universe.

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

    I attended Emerson College for Performing Arts/Musical Theater/ Vocal Direction/ Music Directing/Piano Proficiency. At Berklee College of Music I studied Piano performance, Film scoring & Recording Engineering.
