About Rob Salzer

Rob Salzer
Rob Salzer
Music Teacher, Expert
Location: Rocky Point, NY
Speaks: English
Instructs: Cello, Guitar, Music Theory, String Bass, Viola, Violin
Education: Bachelor and Master's Degree in Music Education
Performance Experience: I have over 20 years of professional performance experience. I have played my own compositions in over 40 states, and nearly 1000 performances (guitar). Some of my songs can still be heard on Sirius/XM and college radio internationally. I have also performed with local organizations such as the North Shore Symphony Orchestra (violin).
Teaching Experience: I have taught for over 15 years, both privately and as an orchestra director in public school districts. I have instructed kindergarten age children through adults who are budding professionals. I have also instructed some of the best string players on Long Island at SCMEA and NMEA festivals.
Teaching Philosophy: My philosophy of music education is that learning music should be fun, challenging, and improve socio-emotional development by teaching how to express what cannot be said verbally. Music is a great way to learn collaborative skills, dexterity, and perseverance, and provides a cathartic experience for beginner and expert level musicians alike.

Get to know Rob Salzer

I have over 15 years of teaching experience, having taught guitar, violin, viola, cello, and string bass privately, and also having been an orchestra director and music theory instructor in the Mineola and Bellmore-Merrick School Districts. I have also been a co-chairperson for All-County orchestras in both Suffolk (SCMEA) and Nassau (NMEA) Counties. I specialize in NYSSMA coaching, having several students being accepted into All-State, and dozens being accepted into LISFA and All-County orchestras.  Having a master's degree in music education from Teacher's College, Columbia Univesity, I firmly believe that music is one of the healthiest forms of expression, and is important for socio-emotional development. Most of all, music is FUN!
