I have been studying the guitar under the direction of Robert (Robbie) Noll for the past 2 years. I have been playing for many years and already have had some experience. And so, I was very particular in my search for a mentor to help guide me to advance my skills and knowledge in the art of guitar playing.
I chose Robbie because I found that he has a very unique approach and teaching style that he has developed over many years. It's efficient, logical and methodical. An algorithm, per se, that if followed and practiced diligently, will result in rapid advancement. And, that is why I choose to continue to move forward and advance in my journey. The bonus is that every week I have a lot of fun and always learn something enlightening. Robbie is a true mentor, a very talented musician and guitarist, and he's become a dear friend. I find my lessons with Robbie to be both beneficial musically as well as therapeutic and spiritual. If there is really such thing as a holistic guitar instructor, then it is Robert Noll.
I would recommend Robbie to anyone who is seriously interested in studying the guitar. Robbie makes the learning process fun and rewarding. His method of instruction will quickly help you advance and achieve improvisational expertise in most every genre. And, if you're lucky, you'll make a really awesome new friend.
