MULLINS STUDENT TESTAMONIALS
Brighton Gray Student2artist
proud to say that I've worked with such a wonderful musician
and teacher as Rob Mullins.
This experience has been extremely educational as well as amazing.
While working with Rob on these songs,
I've been musically challenged but very rewarded. I'd like to thank Rob
for giving me the opporunity to perform
his arrangements and songs with him. Through his incredible connections
he was able to include some
extremely talented artists to perform on the tracks. It has truly been
an honor to record and perform with Rob especially to be
given the opportunity to record a Rob Mullins original song 'Cool
the Summertime.' I'm looking forward to even more great
with such a wonderful mentor and teacher!"-Brighton Gray MORE

with Rob has stretched my musical abilities and raised the bar of my
composition and performance goals. Iíve entered the place where I am
finally understanding the musical language Iíve hungered to speak for
As a composer, Rob helps his student improve their songwriting
skills. As a pianist, Rob shapes the techniques that create an
emotionally powerful instrumental performance. As a drummer, Rob
instills a sense of rhythm and timing that no metronome can compete
with! Robís LA studio is a safe place for rock musicians to develop and
hone their technique, ultimately creating a much stronger live
Robís coaching has given me the confidence to create and tour with a
solo piano rock show as well as strengthening my abilities to be a
better, stronger and more self-assured front woman and bandmate.Ē MORE INFO

referrals, we found Rob as Michael entered high school and he has been
taking private lessons on a weekly basis ever since. Rob is a fantastic
teacher with a deep understanding of the fundamentals and theory of
jazz and an unusual ability to teach it clearly and make it fun. As a
result of Robís teaching, Michael has been the lead keyboard player for
his schoolís ďA bandĒ for the past two years and has been asked to help
teach the other keyboard players in the schoolís ďBĒ band. We
consistently get positive feedback from teachers and judges at
competitions about Michaelís knowledge of the fundamentals of jazz and
his performing. continued...

Jazz Studies Program
As a teacher,
Rob is very professional but very "down to earth." His method of
teaching is tailored to meet each student's needs. Just having the
chord voicing book is not enough (it's like trying to teach yourself
piano). Rob knows how to present the material in a way you can easily
understand. He not only teaches the voicings, but also shows you how to
be creative rhythmically and how to integrate the voicings in the jazz
standards. He's very patient, and his knowledge of jazz is endless. continued...
Melon, Singer/Songwriter Curriculum Student
wanted to drop you a line and thank you for all the good work you have
been doing with our daughter Sophia through your private lesson program.
Especially valuable to us has been the recent coaching you have done
for Sophia's Disney auditions. When we first heard about the Disney
project, we were pretty worried about how Sophia would prepare for the
difficult audition elements that she was going to face, as well as how
we were going to organize her submission requirements as well as send
them via the Internet to Disney. continued...
Blake, Recording Artist, Student2Artist Program
The day I met
Rob Mullins my whole life began to change. When I came to Rob, I
considered myself a guitar player who sang a little and wrote songs
here and there. Now I consider myself not only a songwriter, but a
musician. Rob Mullins gave me every tool I need to be successful in
this extremely competitive music industry. continued...
Ingraham, Recording Artist, Composer-Student2Artist Program
training with Rob Mullins has been an honor and a privilege. Not only
is he a world class master composer and pianist but he is also a
superior producer,arranger and band leader. His extensive knowledge of
the inside workings of the music business, reflects decades of
experience and success playing with and producing some of the greatest
artists of our time. continued...
Bisutti, Television Star, Movie Star, Recording Artist,
came into my musical life and I've been a transformed woman. Since
studying piano with Rob, my musical vocabulary and live performance
skills have expanded and taken on a whole new dimension. Rob's coaching
of my live band for the LA Music Awards Showcase (9/25/03) was a
turning point in helping me take my live show to the next level. continued...
Olson (as said by her father), Movie Star, Piano Lessons,
I wanted you
to know that the techniques you have been using to teach my daughter
piano and music theory have been, quite simply, amazing. Her learning
curve has been, to say the least, dramatic.
After her first lesson, she showed me how she could construct a scale
starting on any note. It was like a puzzle to her to figure out each
key, and she was eager to show us how she could do it. continued...
Barba, Jazz Studies, Teacher Training
I am a
private and small group piano teacher of over 35yrs. I am an active
member of MTAC and NGPT. My main focus in teaching is literacy and
making music a vital part of a students life, therefore; I teach many
styles of piano music. I really never found a Jazz book that could help
students actually learn to think about making Jazz sounds themselves
until I discovered these books. Most beginning books can teach you to
play songs, but that's it. continued...
Burnett, Recording Artist, Composer-Singer/Songwriter Program,
is easily the best piano teacher in Los Angeles. He is the best teacher
I have ever had. After just a few lessons my singer songwriter style
was greatly improved. I played songs I had tried to play for years in a
professional way. continued...
Shurman, Recording Artist, Composer-Singer/Songwriter,
I am grateful
for all the musical help you have given me in the last three
years. When I began working with you, I could barely realize, in
musical form, the songs floating around in my head. If I was able
to sit at the piano and figure out a song, it was often by luck.
Now, there is a method to my madness and I rarely feel "stuck" when
writing music these days. continued...
Cendejas, Recording Artist, Trumpet Virtuoso-Jazz
I asked Greg
Vail one day if he could help me learn how to navigate chord changes
better without having to rely on my ear and he recommended I study with
Rob Mullins. I wanted to study for the summer figuring that would be
enough to get me in the right direction. Little did I know Rob was
going to take me in a much DEEPER direction and has shown me a new
appreciation for Jazz that I never had before. continued...
Mario Tse, Recording
studying with Rob Mullins to improve my jazz piano playing. After a
year of study, he suggested that I sign up for the Student2Artist
Program to make my own CD. We spent lesson time working on the song
arrangements from fake book charts and Rob created arrangements and
showed me how to do the same for my own recording and live band
