About Rob

A performer for over 40 years, Rob plays jazz, blues, rock, classical, and Brazilian and other ethnic music — including klezmer and Chassidic rock. Currently he plays big band jazz with EnerJazz and blues and rock with The Handymen and The Silverbacks. Past bands include original jazz with Chuck Miller’s Seven Project, rock with The Keating Five, blues with Left Eye Jump, free jazz with John Fischer’s Interface, and he frequently plays drums and percussion in musicals.  Here’s his setup for the 2011 production of Miss Saigon at the Paramount Theater, Rutland, Vermont.

Rob is equally passionate about teaching and his commitment to music education takes many forms. He teaches drum and percussion lessons to people of all ages, works with groups in area schools, conducts residencies and facilitates community rhythm (drum) circles, writes books, articles and blogs, and gives Sally’s Music Circle classes for very young children.
