Learn to sing with a 30-year music pro.
I want to help you find your voice and express yourself -- to SHINE and have a lot of fun in the process! I'd like to pass along some of my expertise and knowledge to you. I've been a performing vocalist all my life, with formal training beginning in high school, continuing into college and into my career as a professional musician. I have "stage" experience (choral, broadway musicals, opera) AND experience in the "band" arena, performing vocals and/or bass guitar and guitar for rock, pop, R&B and jazz gigs.
About Rob D.

Hey there! I've been performing music for as long as I can remember, and performing professionally for over 30 years. I have formal training and 12 years of teaching experience. I teach with positivity, patience, and perseverance and help you express the music in you! *** Lesson Details *** All of my lessons are customized to your needs, preferences and goals. No matter what instrument or skill level, I'll take you through the basics and help you build solid practicing fundamentals. I'll also help you develop your performance and, depending on how serious you'd like to get, I can also teach you to read music and learn music theory as well! I balance learning and technical skill with fun and self-expression. *** Studio Equipment *** I have a dedicated music room, stocked with guitars, basses, and practice amp, keyboard and computers with recording software. *** Travel Equipment *** Keyboard, practice amp, and/or instrument cords. I expect the student to provide his/her own instrument, and prefer they have an amplifier for electric instruments. *** Specialties *** I teach in all genres, but have experience in rock, alternative, pop, jazz, and even music theater.

Rob is great. He really works at your pace and is very knowledgeable and insightful. Rob is a very positive teacher.

I'd never had any experience aside from singing in my car. Rob helped me learn many different exercises and helped me identify and unlearn bad habits I had picked up. He helped me learn to sing a lot of different songs that I enjoyed and is quick to map out the vocal notes on the piano to help me more easily understand and hit the notes I need to. Definitely recommend him as an instructor!

Great exercises and feedback for singing. I felt much more comfortable singing with Rob than I expected.
