Lessons are custom tailored to each student's specific strengths, needs, and goals.
Robert strives to make every lesson not only educational and enlightening, but fun and
exciting. Hands on and stimulating learning combined with a relaxed and comfortable
atmosphere make for the most productive sessions. Students will learn to read music,
work on fundamental technique, discover ear training and aural skills, understand theory,
master rhythm, compose and improvise, and much more.
Robert uses a combination of lesson books,technology, repertoire, and games to help
teach most effectively. His strategy of combining Traditional methods (e.g. reading notes,
scales, technique) with more Contemporary learning styles (incorporating Pop, Jazz, and
Commercial Music) allows students to be the most well rounded pianists and musicians.

Message from Robert
"I grew up with a classical background. I learned Beethoven, Mozart, Chopin, and
Tchaikovsky. But as I continued to study classical music in college, I started to diversify
and play with other pianists, singers, bands, and orchestras. The fundamental technique I
learned growing up and the strong roots I had developed allowed for a seamless
transition into more contemporary and commercial music and playing. I’ve worked now in
the Entertainment Industry for companies like Walt Disney World, Busch Gardens, and
Norwegian Cruise Line; In Theatre for Broadway National Tours, Local Theatres, and
Colleges; and in my roots as a classical pianist for Weddings, Private Events, and
Orchestras around Florida. None of this is out of reach for anybody learning to play the
piano. I strive to give each and every student this same education that I’ve learned
throughout the years. This will allow them to grasp and understand all of the essentials
that will support them in any direction they choose to go. Hard work and a little passion
can take you anywhere!”
