My Musical Education Background

The State University of N.Y. BS: Education and Music

Genres and Subjects Taught

I teach all styles of music. Naturally students are more motivated when they start to learn songs they like. Gradually we include learning to read music, ear training and understanding music. I teach guitar as a real musical instrument.

I make the student a more musical person that can let them play all kinds of music.

I worked my way playing mostly shows in the Pits in the New York Area. I've played many pop, rock, country rock and other music. I worked backing up a singer as a duo which was a lot of fun.

I play and teach classical, jazz, rock, country, folk, standards, or whatever you want. I hope to expand your musical horizons.

Student Reviews

As a long-time musician myself (bass and guitar), and having known Bob for many years, I selected him to teach my daughter cello and piano. Bob helped my daughter with some cello basics and then found an excellent teacher to help her continue where his expertise with the cello ended. He also taught her the piano. His style of teaching instilled a love for the instrument and making music in my daughter. His style integrates the basics of different techniques into usable pieces of music to encourage the student to play, especially for others - a significant factor in a performance art. I am happy to say that Bob's tutelage helped to instill a life-long love for the piano in my daughter and I can often find her sitting at the piano making music. I highly recommend Bob as a teacher and also to help in the selection of an appropriate musical instrument. His understanding of the real-world requirements that must be found in a musical instrument are also key to ensuring that the student will be successful. There are many "instruments" for sale that will NOT help a student to progress and learn - Bob will clearly steer you away from those and help you find a suitable instrument within your price range.

Peter Uttal Bob Comarow was my guitar teacher for many years. He's the greatest teacher ever. I was so sad when he moved to California. He's a fantastic guitarist himself; he can play ANY kind of music. He's an expert in both music theory and playing technique. As a teacher, he's kind, patient, understanding, and very persistent. Although he makes the lessons fun, I always walked away knowing much more, and playing much better than when I walked in. Bob takes his direction from his student. By that, I mean that he taught me exactly what I wanted to know, and how to play exactly what I wanted to play, and how to play it well. He also repaired my guitars so they would play better for me! In addition to guitar, he also taught me some bass guitar, string bass and keyboards. He's a total expert in all of those things, too. I highly recommend Bob. If you want to learn music, you can't go wrong with him.
