Bob Moore is a creative guitarist with nearly 30 years of playing experience. He is influenced by amazing players like Jimmy Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Joe Satriani, Robben Ford, Frank Gambale, and Tom Quayle, to name only a few. He has studied guitar privately with a number of fine rock and jazz guitarists, and has taken relevant music theory and guitar practice courses at both Towson University and Berklee Online College of Music. Notably, as a Berklee Online student, Bob earned a coveted course tuition scholarship for his solid classroom and performance efforts.
Bob has teaching strengths in music theory (e.g., key signatures, scales, arpeggios, triads, "jazz" chords, chord inversions), improvisation (i.e., answering the question: "What would sound good over that chord?"), and playing technique (i.e., playing clean and fast! using legato, staccato, or two-handed techniques). Bob can teach guitar, bass, and ukulele, and focuses on playing Blues, Jazz, Folk and Rock music.
Bob began teaching at Island Music in September 2018. Previously, Bob taught guitar in the early 90's while a college student. As Bob holds advanced degrees in other professional disciplines, he has been an Adjunct Professor at the College of Southern Maryland since 2001, teaching both Humanities and Information Technology courses.
Currently, Bob teaches at Island Music Co. on Saturday's, from 10-6. He teaches musicians of all ages and all skill levels.
