Letter of RecomMendatioN


"...Simply stated, Rob helps students succeed both onstage and offstage by building their self-confidence through creating in them an awareness of new, and sometimes untapped, forms of expression.  His positive attitude and willingness to work with all kinds of personalities and degrees of talent, coupled with his own amazing talent and professional expertise, allow him to draw the most from each student’s potential, motivating that student to perform at levels they likely never dreamed possible.  Watching Rob work with our students, seeing the respect and admiration they have for him, and observing their personal transformations through art is truly magical."
