Rob's resume

Versatile performer, recording artist and veteran teacher in school, university and private studio settings, San Francisco Bay Area vocalist Rob Grant translates his passion for sharing the joy of music into fun and highly-individualized lessons.

The human voice is an amazingly versatile instrument, with it’s capacity to produce melody, harmony and even percussion. As my student, you’ll be taught to maximize the power and versatility of the human voice by learning:
Essential Vocal Physiology
Healthy Vocal Technique
The Language of Music--Demystifying Sheet Music and Notation Reading

A good singer is more than a mechanic who knows repertoire and technique: A good singer knows MUSIC, the theory and patterns that shape the sounds that are produced by their vocal cords.
Mastering an instrument like the human voice is not just about theory and discipline, its about the joy of expanding and sharing one’s world with other people.

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!

Robin

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.

Interview with Rob

QUESTION 01 | 08
When did your passion for music begin?
Rob — I have been involved in music since early childhood, starting with school and church choirs, then learning guitar in college, and then becoming a teacher.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Do agree that some instruments are harder to master and, if so, which ones?
Rob — Most certainly! Violin, with its dependence on PERFECT finger positioning and an intimate connection between ear and fingers, makes this instrument among the most difficult to master. Having a perfect sense of pitch is absolutely critical! French horn follows as a close second.
QUESTION 03 | 08
In your opinion, what does it take to be a successful musician?
Rob — Of course, a LOVE of music is essential, but a commitment to constantly advance in skills, even when progress may not be instant, must follow that passion.
QUESTION 04 | 08
It is 2 am in your local bar; which famous musician would you most like to have a conversation with?
Rob — Earl Klugh, Kemmy Ramkin or Eric Clapton would be a good start!
QUESTION 05 | 08
What is your most inspiring experience as a musician?
Rob — Seeing the tangible effect that my performance and teaching has on the lives of people.
QUESTION 06 | 08
In your own opinion, what does it take to be a Superprof?
Rob — Teaching takes the commitment to see EACH student as an individual, with specific and unique needs, unique potential and unique personality.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Describe your best Superprof lesson and explain why it was so great.
Rob — Whether it be through SuperProf or any other teaching experience, the best lessons are those where it is clear that the student not only "does" the task assigned, but understands the subtleties and purpose of the exercise. Our task as teachers is to awaken in the student THEIR OWN passion for the subject, and when that happens, it is the most satisfying WIN/WIN ever!
QUESTION 08 | 08
Finally, if you had to choose a piece of music or album to play on loop for a day, what would it be?
Rob — Earl Klugh or Natalie Cole, but let's not forget Bach and Schubert.
