I'm an established guitar / bass / voice / keyboard & music teacher. Most of my students are beginners. I teach advanced students too. I have 35 years experience teaching guitar and I am professionally trained, with lots of references available upon request. I specialize in all styles of music, from mellow accoustic to shredding electric. Many students tell me they learn more in one month than they have with other teachers they have tried.

I teach students of all ages and I will meet or beat any advertised price. I have a great studio too, with lots of cool tools for recording and writing notation or tab. All materials and services are included. Gift certificates are available.

I also specialize in teaching songwriting and music theory for all levels of guitar, keyboard and voice. I have placed students in advanced local magnet school programs for classical guitar. I have written hundreds of songs, in every style that you can imagine and then some! If you like, I can teach you how.

Every student is totally different. Whether you are on the fast-track or prefer to take your time. Whether you're younger, older or somewhere in between. My experience makes it so easy to work with you to create an individual program that will help you reach your goals as quickly and inexpensively as possible. I routinely draw students from as far away as the Beaches, St. Augustine, Marietta, and South Georgia.

Customer Testimonials

Bob is giving my 14 year old voice lesson's and after only two lessons my son says he can tell a differce in his voice and so can i. My son also took guitar lessons with Bob for about 3 years and last year at LaVilla School of the Arts he recieved the honor of excellence in classical guitar. Mr.Mann is great teacher.


Great Teacher! I have been playing guitar since I was 15, never took lessons and never got very good. Had a couple of referals to try Bob out and I've not been disappointed. We've gone back to the begining so that I can get the theory and it's really starting to fall into place, he has some simple tools to help it all make sense. He knows about every facet of music that I've mentioned and has the ability to explain it in a way I can get. If you want to get better at playing, or learn the theory, Bob's your guy.


Bob is a master teacher! I spent a couple hours weeding through people that advertised they provide guitar lessons. I was searching for someone that I could relate to and learn quickly from while working in Florida. By some stroke of luck…or Divine intervention…I found Bob’s entry. This guy was different than the others. I told him my situation, he understood completely. I can’t recommend Bob enough to anyone who is interested in taking lessons in guitar, keyboard or voice. He has a knack of making you want to practice, want to be successful and feel confident that one day, in time….you will! Thanks Bob!
