"We have been with Rob’s School of Music since the doors opened. My son began taking guitar lessons, he wanted to be a rock star like his teacher. After about a year Rob, my son and I realized that his inner rock star was more of an acoustic song writer! We began piano lessons and have not stopped since that day. My son has learned more than just notes and songs. He sees the music. He feels the music. His teacher, Lou, found a way to make the basics fun and the difficult portions a breeze. The amount of time, patience and love that goes into each lesson is palpable. He truly looks forward to each piano lesson. As our lessons progressed, my sons desire to take his music further brought us to Sam for voice lessons. He loves to sing and Sam found a way to take natural talent and harness it. She hones in on the necessary steps to strengthen his tone and pitch. Not only has she found a way to challenge him each week with new techniques, she also gives him confidence. She constantly reminds him that hard work and perseverance will help him achieve his dreams. As a parent these lessons are invaluable. Being a part of Rob’s School of Music truly makes you part of a family. A family of teachers, students and an owner that share their love for music with each of their students! "
