Bob’s students say:

“Bob’s easy manner and knowledge make lessons truly something to look forward to.”
Bob is a patient, thorough teacher. Playing with Bob, and under his leadership, is an inspiring experience.
Bob is a master teacher and an incredible musician. The progress my 13-year old has made in such a short time is amazing.
Bob has been instructive and patient with me. With no musical background, I feel like I have accomplished a lot.
