Best prices in town!

Our lesson prices are the best in town! While everywhere else continues to raise their prices, we realize that for most people learning to play an instrument is a luxury that not everyone can easily afford.

Rob Wilkinson

 Piano, Keys, Ukulele

 
Rob Wilkinson has been in one band or another starting from around the time he was in middle school. Since then he has done years of study with the Royal Conservatory of Music, and completed his diploma of Jazz studies at VIU, where he studied under acclaimed pianists Bill Costin and Bob Wilson, and won the George and Daisy Fraser Music award.

Rob has played for years in jazz, pop, rock, and metal bands, and his musical influences span from Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles, to jazz contemporaries like Kurt Elling, The Bad Plus, and Tigran Hamasyan. He currently performs regularly with the Rudiment Trio and the The Body Politic, and has performed and collaborated with many more groups including Vancouver’s Lovecoast and Victoria’s Band of Rascals. In addition to the hours of practice and performance time on the piano, Rob also plays the guitar, sings, and teaches lessons and group courses on the ukulele.

Whether it's following the Royal Conservatory methods of instruction, improvising over chord progressions, or even just learning your favourite song; Rob's wide variety of playing experience allows him the means to help you become a better player, using whatever genre or method is most enjoyable for you, and incorporating all-around musicianship in the process.
