Internationally known jazz guitarist, instructor
and EmArcy Records recording artist
“As my introduction to formal training, Robert Jones was always sensitive to my musical needs and inspired me to have the confidence to move forward in my music”
Robert has been integral in inspiring me to play my guitar again. I put the instrument down for over 15 years and I’m playing more now than I did before. Robert always keeps the lessons interesting and I learn something new every lesson.
I took lesson’s from Robert when I was just 7 years old, and continued until I was 14. I couldn’t have asked for a better teacher. I know that I was not the easiest to deal with, yet his patience was enormous. His teaching style and methods helped me to become a musician that has toured the world in 3 different bands. To this day I am still learning from him even without taking any lessons. Robert himself is an awesome guy, and an amazing guitar player.
I’ve been a self taught acoustic guitar player for 6 years, but I’ve been wanting some formal training to get a better understanding of the guitar and to take my playing to the next level. I found Robert Jones Guitar and decided to give him a shot. Robert is an amazing guitarist and an even better teacher. He tailors his teaching style to the wants and needs of his students. As the saying goes…He doesn’t just give you a fish, he teaches you how to fish. His patient teaching has given me a much greater understanding of the guitar and has taken my playing to a whole new level. I highly recommend Robert for any level guitarist!
Excellent understanding of all types of music. Great patience, thoughtful insight, and keeps you on track and allows you to follow your own musical path. Have been a student for three years.

My son and a friend have learned so much with Robert. He keeps them engaged and interactive. They look forward to the classes. You will get your money’s worth and more.
KIM OLNEY (parent of Rachel)
If you have a teen experiencing an interest in guitar Robert is your go to instructor. Our now 23 year old daughter still picks up one of her guitars especially when she needs to de-stress. Robert not only guided her in advancing her skills, but shared with her the very joy of making music.
HENRY DeGROOT (parent of William)
Robert has been a perfect fit for our son’s guitar lessons. Professional, encouraging and comfortable style of teaching. Our son has definitely advanced under his teaching as compared to previous instructors. Double thumbs up!
“I have taken lessons from Robert for a while now and I must say that my skill, knowledge, and passion for music have greatly increased; Robert is a great teacher and a talented musician who has made each lesson informative and enjoyable, no matter if I was learning technique, theory, or experimenting with different styles.”
” . . . my musical education was restricted to simply reading music without teaching me what was occurring or how to write my own. Taking lessons with Robert opened up music and how it works, allowing me to be far more creative and be able to compose my own pieces.”
“Robert’s method made it easy for me to learn things that I’d always found too complicated to understand.
. . . I wanted to be able to participate in impromptu jams. …What I learned from Robert helped me to do that.”
“Robert is a great teacher . . . I still remember all the songs he taught me, and all of the music theory as well. He taught me a variety of styles too; rock, blues, funk, and anything else I wanted to learn.”

“… We asked Robert to perform at several Chamber Events this past year, and we found him to be very adaptable to each event. You can really depend on Robert to take the time to make sure that you get what you want and he takes care to please the crowd. If you desire a special and unique sound or familiar tunes, his professionalism shines through.”
KERRY KIEFERBoard Director
Kenwood Community Club
…I would highly recommend Robert Jones to anyone who is looking for a high-quality, highly-professional musician. He can please a crowd that wants to listen to good music and also enjoy a dinner, drinks, and conversation with friends.
