Rob started playing the guitar at age 12 and was initially inspired to play by seeing one of his favorite bands, Metallica, live in concert. With that inspiration, Rob started taking lessons at a local music store where he learned the basic building blocks. He attended the National Guitar Workshop where he studied with guitar greats John Petrucci, Frank Gambale, and Scott Henderson. To further his music education, Rob attended Rhode Island College where he immersed himself in jazz and classical guitar studies. In addition to that, he has a B.S. in Digital Recording Arts. Rob has played in numerous bands over the years. He currently performs in several bands around Florida with venues ranging from Disney World to Margaritaville. *** Lesson Details *** I am a guitarist who has been playing/performing for over 20 years.
