Reviews of Guitar Lessons Coogee

  • I've had about 4-1/2 months of lessons with Rob and he's taken me from absolute beginner to being able to play some cool songs. He's given me lots of different techniques to progress and has made learning really enjoyable. I've studied piano and flute in the past, but gave up because the teachers made it boring. I'm really enjoying the lessons and have found Rob inspiring.
  • If you want to improve your guitar playing, Rob is the guy to see. I had been mucking around strumming for 5 years, and hadn't made an improvement for at least two before i saw Rob. Straight away I saw results, and it wasn't even that hard work! Rob knew pretty much every style of guitar i put to him, and he knew the right way to play it. His communication is great, and he is very generous with his time. I have gone from being an average guitar player to one somebody people want to see play within a short time. I'm sure Rob would be a great teacher to beginners, given his patience and simplified approach to guitar playing, but from my experience, if you've hit a plateau with your guitar playing, see Rob and you will improve your skills after only a few lessons.
  • Rob is a fantastic teacher. I've been wishing I could play guitar for 40 years. Finally did something about it. Rob was recommended by my local guitar shop. Awesome. Now my 9 year old is taking lessons as well. Highly recommended!
  • Learning to play with Rob has been a great experience. He's a great teacher and has alot of experience and I've learnt more in the 2 months with him than I have my whole 5 years of playing guitar.
  • This is Saul here - been a student of Rob for a little while. I am always surprised at the level of diversity that this bloke has with his playing and teaching; from delicate blues to Jazz, country to shred. Nothing is out of bounds to learn. He is easily able to depart knowledge and help me learn stuff that I would have never thought possible... I came in a 'camp fire' guitar player with the basic chords and one or two scales and have progressed to another level completely. I actually enjoy the lessons! There is no sign of rigidity in his teaching style or pressure, just a willingness to meet me where I am at and help me to extend from that point. All I can say is that it started as some casual lessons and it has ended up as a guitar journey.
  • I have been able to play half a dozen chords badly for over 40 years. Finally I decided to bite the bullet and get some structure into learning to play the guitar. I'm so glad I did. Rob knew exactly where to start and has been wonderful in encouraging me. I'm getting a huge amount of enjoyment from the rapid progress being made and I'd love to write more but I'd rather practice!
  • Rob is an awesome teacher. I come from a classical guitar background and have always found it difficult to compose my own music but Rob has really helped me become more of my own player with a unique style. Thanks!
  • I have known Rob since I was a kid. I've always been into guitar but I didn't really get better until Rob gave me the training and encouragement I needed. I'm really happy with the patience he showed, because I was not an easy student. The sad part is that I've now moved to Melbourne and only see him when he comes and visits.

    Miss ya mate and hope to get some more lessons when you come visit!
  • My son and daughter have been having learning to play guitar with Rob for the past four years, and they are still loving their weekly lessons. They started with Rob as complete novices, but through his knowledge, patience, enthusiasm and encouragement they have developed into two very proficient young guitar players. Rob has a vast range of songs and styles to suit all musical tastes and levels of ability. He has a wonderful way with children of all ages, and I would definitely encourage any parent who is considering music lessons for their child to give Rob a call - I'm certainly glad I did!!
  • I've been getting guitar lessons from Rob for many years now and with his teaching ability,he really does make you feel like you've achieved something.
    I highly recommend him to anyone who truly wants to learn the basics or become more professional.
  • I have only been getting lessons from Rob for a few months now and yet very happy with the progress I am making. I started as someone who had a rudimentary grasp of the basics but very few of the skills. Rob has astutely picked up where I was at and where I wanted to get to with my guitar playing. He has patiently set about helping me acquire these basic skills whilst engendering in me a real sense of achievement as I slowly grow in confidence. From the novice guitar player's perspective I have no hesitation in recommending Rob as a patient, supportive and genuinely passionate guitar teacher.
  • My son started studying the guitar with Rob five years ago. In that time he has become a confident and skillful player and has covered a wide range of music and playing styles. Rob is a very patient and encouraging teacher who pitches his teaching perfectly at the student's level. He is a talented musician and a professional in his work. I attend the lessons with my son and we have both thoroughly enjoyed every lesson since we started. I am extremely pleased with my son's progress and highly recommend Rob as a teacher.
  • This guy is a great teacher. He gets where you are at with your playing and then helps you expand.

    I have learned heaps more than I would have expected.
  • I have been taking guitar lessons with Rob for over 2 years now and have thoroughly enjoyed every minute that I have spent with him learning to play guitar.

    The things that I really admire about Rob, that make him such a great guitar teacher, are his absolute passion for music, his awesome talent and the patience that he demonstrates with his students. I have really appreciated the way in which he has allowed me to learn at my own pace but at the same time has always encouraged me to challenge myself and to strive to improve.

    What you appreciate very early on when learning to play the guitar with Rob is that he has been teaching people to play for many years and he applies this knowledge and experience to everything that he does with his students.

    I have no hesitation in recommending Rob to anyone seeking to learn to play the guitar. I am having a great time whilst learning to play a musical instrument. I am very fortunate to have Rob as my teacher.
  • After a hiatus of at least 20 years, I decided to pick up guitar again. Having forgotten most of what I knew, I thought I would seek out a local guitar teacher to help me get back up to speed. Fortunately, I was put in touch with Rob who had many years experience. Even though I knew a lot about guitar playing, Rob helped me with my fingering and showed me many things that I had forgotten over the years. If you are a novice or experienced, I cannot recommend Rob more highly enough and I'm starting to think about joining a band again.
  • My son is extremely lucky to have Rob as his guitar teacher for the past five years. His generosity in teaching and his patience and passion for music makes him the perfect teacher. i would highly recommend Rob....
