Introduction: In my career as a guitar coach I saw many aspiring guitarists practice and practice but not get the results they hoped for. After studying with word renowned guitarists such as Eliot Fisk, David Russell, Pepe Romero and others - and exploring countless guitar methods, I started to discover ways to get guitarists past their thresholds and beyond their limitations. They finally started to feel confident with their beloved instrument and play with great expression. I was able to make it happen over and over again, to a point where I am confident to promise measurable results to anyone who wants to study with me. It is crucial to choose an excellent repertoire that is within, or slightly above a player’s ability. From that starting point, I present or design exercises that are aimed at specific technical development as well as address detailed individual challenges and technical shortcomings. In the years I have been doing this, I have seen too many aspiring people work on exercises that did absolutely nothing for them and that is something I cannot tolerate! I guarantee weekly progress.

Jim C.

I had been playing and taking classical guitar lessons for about 8 years prior to starting with Robert and learned some valuable techniques and pieces of music, but didn’t gain the sound quality that makes the instrument so beautiful. Robert taught me how to go beyond just playing the notes and opened up the gorgeous sound of the guitar.

Studied with Robert for several years, and still now continues to be a great guitar mentor for me. He always was invested in his teaching and took care of his students’ progression. He has a very friendly demeanor that doesn’t interfere with his professionalism. His ability to teach repertoire stands out to me personally from my time studying with him

Robert pays close attention to where I'm having trouble and gives me useful strategies to address the issues and move forward. He is upbeat and encouraging. I also find his YouTube videos very helpful.

Robert possesses the ability to correct even the smallest error in my playing and does so with patience and respect. He helps me play better by dissecting difficult sections with attention to mechanics and musicality. He inspires me to play a score artistically and expressively. In essence, Robert's teaching style is wholistic; addressing the realms of how to practice, good technique, interpretation of the music, and inspiring artistry and enjoyment.
