About the lesson
This 35-year veteran teacher, performer and recording artist can get you started as a beginner, or bring you to the next level as an intermediate or advanced singer...
I have a Masters Degree, and have been performing and teaching for over 35 years. While performing is a delightful experience, I feel equally as enthused when teaching others and helping them grow in their own artistry. Helping my students reclaim their passion for music is a particular joy for me as a teacher!
- Music Reading
A musical fixture in the San Francisco Bay Area, 35 year-veteran teacher and performer Rob Grant brings to his teaching a unique, eclectic style and a patient, tailored- to-your-needs teaching approach that have been appreciated for more than 35 years by students of all ages.
Fun and highly-individualized lessons... Patient teacher who wants you to love music...Flexible schedule and rates... Specializing in combining PHYSICAL aspects of vocal technique AND the INTELLECTUAL skills of basic musicianship like sight reading and music theory. ... Lessons in my studio or at your home/office.
Rob is a top-notch teacher. He is also kind, patient and super-talented. He knows a variety of musical styles and can teach both nylon and steel string guitar. His students range in age from 6 to 60+. I have been studying with him since 2012 and I continue to progress each week. I recommend him wholeheartedly!
Rob is the best musician I know, both technically and artistically. He knows everything about music and can play anything. He can also improvise and transpose on the spot. Rob is also cheerful, kind and very patient with kids and adults alike. And you will never find a more reliable person who loves what he does.
I would not hesitate to recommend Rob as a guitar and ukulele instructor for anyone of any age.

When did your passion for music begin?
I have been involved in music since early childhood, starting with school and church choirs, then learning guitar in college, and then becoming a teacher.
Do agree that some instruments are harder to master and, if so, which ones?
Most certainly! Violin, with its dependence on PERFECT finger positioning and an intimate connection between ear and fingers, makes this instrument among the most difficult to master. Having a perfect sense of pitch is absolutely critical! French horn follows as a close second.
In your opinion, what does it take to be a successful musician?
Of course, a LOVE of music is essential, but a commitment to constantly advance in skills, even when progress may not be instant, must follow that passion.
It is 2 am in your local bar; which famous musician would you most like to have a conversation with?
Earl Klugh, Kemmy Ramkin or Eric Clapton would be a good start!
What is your most inspiring experience as a musician?
Seeing the tangible effect that my performance and teaching has on the lives of people.
In your own opinion, what does it take to be a Superprof?
Teaching takes the commitment to see EACH student as an individual, with specific and unique needs, unique potential and unique personality.
Describe your best Superprof lesson and explain why it was so great.
Whether it be through SuperProf or any other teaching experience, the best lessons are those where it is clear that the student not only "does" the task assigned, but understands the subtleties and purpose of the exercise. Our task as teachers is to awaken in the student THEIR OWN passion for the subject, and when that happens, it is the most satisfying WIN/WIN ever!
Finally, if you had to choose a piece of music or album to play on loop for a day, what would it be?
Earl Klugh or Natalie Cole, but let's not forget Bach and Schubert.
