Bob Rose– piano teacher and performance coach
Despite being quite a lazy student at a young age, I got my grade 8 piano when I was 11 years old.
In recent years, I have developed a system of teaching anybody how to learn an instrument in this ‘natural’, quick and relaxed way.
I now work much more diligently(!)- this journey has given me the tools to encourage and coach people towards achieving their highest potential. Unlocking your brain to learn music in this way has benefits for every single other area of your life.
When I was around 15, the electric guitar changed my life- passionately learning in the style of Steve Vai and Joe Satriani. This motivated me to learn improvising and jazz, which inspired me to study classical composition at university.
When I was there, I had an incredible piano teacher who had won international piano competitions and was one of the world’s leading pianists. His CDs were always recommended by guides as being the best versions to own. Over 5 years, he raised my playing to a very high level.
I also played the violin/viola semi-professionally in my 20s.
