In his own words… ‘its up to them but I prefer them to learn some theory along with the physical side of playing’.
His strongest interests are in improvisation, harmony, timing and feel, because he feels it’s so important to learn how to play with other musicians . Rob lives in Mannamead Plymouth and often recommends fortnightly lessons.
