This 30-year veteran teacher, performer and recording artist can get you started as a beginner, or bring you to the next level as an intermediate or advanced player
I have a Masters Degree, and have been performing and teaching for over 35 years. While performing is a delightful experience, I feel equally as enthused when teaching others and helping them grow in their own artistry. Helping my students reclaim their passion for music is a particular joy for me as a teacher.
A musical fixture in the San Francisco Bay Area, 30 year-veteran teacher and performer Rob Grant brings to his teaching a unique, eclectic, acoustic playing style and a patient, tailored- to-your-needs teaching approach that have been appreciated for more than 30 years by students of all ages.
Fun and highly-individualized lessons... Patient teacher who wants you to love music...
Flexible schedule and rates... Specializing in acoustic-style playing ... Lessons in my studio or at your home/office
While the majority of my students come to my studio in San Francisco, I can do in-home lessons as well, in which case we can have a conversation regarding an added fee for travel....
Versatile performer, recording artist and veteran teacher in school, university and private studio settings, San Francisco Bay Area guitarist Rob Grant translates his passion for sharing the joy of music into fun and highly-individualized lessons.
The guitar is an amazingly verstile instrument, with it’s capacity to produce melody, harmony and percussion, all at the same time. As my student, you’ll be taught to maximize the power of this ever ancient, ever new instrument by learning:
Rhythm (strumming and finger picking)
Melody (playing the “tune” of your favorite songs):
Harmony (the chords and multi-note patterns that build off the melodic leads)
A good player is more than a mechanic who knows positions and technique: A good player knows MUSIC, the theory and patterns that shape the actions of their hands.
Learning an instrument is not just about theory and discipline, its about the joy of expanding and sharing one’s world with other people.
Rob is a top-notch teacher. He is also kind, patient and super-talented. He knows a variety of musical styles and can teach both nylon and steel string guitar. His students range in age from 6 to 60+. I have been studying with him since 2012 and I continue to progress each week. I recommend him wholeheartedly!
Rob is the best musician I know, both technically and artistically. He knows everything about music and can play anything. He can also improvise and transpose on the spot. Rob is also cheerful, kind and very patient with kids and adults alike. And you will never find a more reliable person who loves what he does.
I would not hesitate to recommend Rob as a guitar and ukulele instructor for anyone of any age.
