Have you always wanted to play acoustic or electric guitar?
Are you looking to take your playing up a notch?
Whether you're just starting out, or you've been playing for a while, I'd love to teach you guitar!
Song based learning
Learning is most enjoyable when you're playing songs that you know and love. We'll build your lessons up around the songs that you want to learn, supplementing them with exercises to build your technique.
In home lessons
Your time is valuable! I teach lessons either in your home or online, allowing you to learn in a comfortable, familiar and relaxed environment.
Tailored to you
We'll make sure that your lessons are geared towards achieving your personal guitar goals, whether that's strumming around a campfire, jamming with your friends or getting up on stage!
Learn at your own pace
We'll build up your skills at a pace that you feel comfortable with, reinforcing each step as we go.
My name is Rob, and I’ve been teaching guitar in Gibsons, the Sunshine Coast and North Vancouver for the last 8 years.
I specialize in helping beginners of all ages get started with the guitar.
I started my guitar journey over 20 years ago, playing both acoustic and electric guitar, and have since studied with Berklee College of Music.
I'm passionate about sharing my love of the guitar and all the benefits that playing music brings.
I enjoy playing and listening to a wide variety of music, including John Mayer, Tom Petty, U2, The Gaslight Anthem and Brand New. And of course my guilty pleasures – Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and The 1975!
I live in Gibsons with my wife, 2 kids and 2 crazy cats, and when I'm not playing guitar, I enjoy cycling, fishing, drinking coffee and relaxing on our beautiful beaches!

I can't thank you enough for starting me on the road to playing guitar and being such a wonderful, patient and thoughtful instructor. As I'm sure you know, picking up any new hobby as an adult can be very challenging and your support, understanding and sense of humour makes it all very enjoyable. Thank you. Cathy J
I can't tell you thankful I am to have had you as a teacher over the last few years – I would never have learned half of what I know if it wasn't for you. Mark R
Thank you so much for bringing the joy of music to our home. M is pumped and feels so successful after his lesson. Kristin H
