I studied with Bob in 1975 !! while playing there in a band Haywire with local Ted Mortimer, who also studied with Bob.
Hope you read these reviews, Bob! I played for a while, then went back to computer software, for the money and security. Ted M went on to become a great guitarist. We both went to Dartmouth, Ted lives back there.
See drburma.com for Ted Ms band, R&B and jazz.
My son Ethan K just graduated from Berklee, plays jazz guitar. We play duos monthly at Rumpys in Lenox MA as K2. I mostly play 5-string electric bass now, everybody plays guitar :-)
See youtube channel Ethan KMusic for son, and I on one vocal at Ryles jazz club in Boston.
Hey Bob THANKS for the lessons. I was a mix of self-taught, but could read from choir and accordion of all things. Polish, you know :-) But I'm a math whiz, it all made sense when Bob taught me numbers. I STILL have trouble telling people what letters I'm playing.

Bob, re ignited a passion for music and patiently taught jazz, blues modern rock and transribed music written for other instruments. He taught my son as well.

Bob Brown is a special musician. I took lessons from him for years and everything I know I learned from him. He has a fantastic ear, he is a great sight reader, he knows theory and he can really play. He can explain to you rather than just show you. I moved out of Albuquerque and wish I was there because I'd still be taking lessons from him. He's the only guitar teacher I ever had who helped me. I would not hesitate to recommend him. Fantastic musican and a very cool guy.

I had the privelage of studying guitar with him for a couple of years back in the early 90's. Had a special connection with him because he knows my wive's uncles very well whom also played in bands, Bob is a fantastic teacher and made guitar fun. I'd take in Judas Priest, AC/DC, Cinderella etc and he'd listen and then show me what was going on. loved taking lessons from him.

I had the pleasure of guitar lessons with Bob from 1963 until around 1983.
I was 9 yrs old when my lessons started. What a fantastic time I had learning from him.
I miss him and if I could I'd still be enjoy playing and learning with him again.
If you get the special oppertunity to study with him...don't pass it by.

Doesn't get much better than Bob Brown when it comes to guitar lesson. The man has been playing for decades and he really knows his stuff. He can teach you ANYTHING. ANYTHING!
