Robert (pictured here with his son, Adam) has been teaching individual and group music lessons for over fourteen years, with students from 7 to 70 years old with varying levels of experience. From piano and organ to composition and arranging, his guiding principle is to expose students to the full range of styles and techniques by channeling their own musical interests, such as popular (particularly film/TV or videogame) music. This synthesis of styles is an important component of a well-rounded musician in the 21st century. He encourages a balance of intensive learning with fun, believing that getting to know an instrument in a relaxed environment can help to identify ones abilities and true passion.
His students have access to a wide variety of local instruments, including the 1928 Skinner pipe organ (III/68) at Christ Church in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, where he serves as Organist & Choirmaster. He is also able to give lessons in his student’s homes or at the G. Paul Music studio in Worcester, MA.
