Teaching Philosophy: My goals as a teacher are inexorably tied to your goals as a student. If you are looking to join your school's jazz band, you will need a very different set of skills than if you are wanting to become a singer/songwriter. I embrace teaching music, as Victor Wooten might explain, as teaching a language. We begin our education by listening and building our vocabulary. Listening comes first, then speaking, followed by reading and writing.

Get to know Robert Crisler

Born in Riverside, CA, Rob has been studying music since he was a young child. By the time he was in 3rd
grade, he had taken piano, drum set, steel drum, and guitar lessons. He would form and join many bands 
throughout his school years (which often involved teaching his friends how to play their parts). This helped
Rob become a versatile multi-instrumentalist, and a strong composer/arranger. 

In 2007, Rob began studying at Berklee College of Music, where he continued to increase his knowledge of 
different instruments and different styles of music. It was during this time that Rob became fascinated by 
Harmony, so he took many ear training courses to learn to analyze music by ear in real time. 

Currently, Rob is teaching in Las Vegas, and as the Covid-19 pandemic eases, he will return to performing.
