My name is Bob Porri and I have been playing guitar, teaching, writing and recording for many years. Some of my favorite Rock and Blues guitarists that I grew up studying were Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, John McLaughlin, Larry Coryell, Eddie Van Halen, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani and Eric Johnson. There were many others through my years of playing guitar as well. I studied Classical Guitar while getting my Bachelor's degree of Music Education from The Hartt School at the University of Hartford. I have always been invovled with songwriting and recording original music. Along with teaching all ages and all styles privately for many years, I currently have many online students I teach via webcam in one on one and in groups. I enjoy teaching what a student wants to learn. When possible, I like incorporating Music Theory and encourage learning to read music, however, you can be a great player even if you choose to play by ear. As well as teaching songs students wants to learn, I enjoy teaching Rock, Blues, and other styles of lead guitar and improvisation.
