Armed with grade 5 theory, Rob spent his early years not only rushing through ABRSM piano grades but playing electric guitar and bass. Presently studying for his performance diploma on the instrument, Rob teaches his own curriculum for electric guitar giving students a broad but deep understanding in technique, music theory and improvisation.

Gaining music industry experience and recognition through his work with Sanzen and The Legion of Doom, Rob specialises in modern styles of hardcore punk and metal, Rob’s curriculum draws upon works from the acoustic-based folk, 1950s rock ‘n roll, blues, pop, rock and punk genres.

Whether a student wishes to push themselves with exam-based qualifications (Rockschool, Trinity, ABRSM) or just wishes to pursue the instrument as a hobby, the emphasis is on teaching rather than demonstrating how to play the electric guitar; Rob’s students are encouraged to study all genres of music through playing, reading and listening.
