Rob McPherson – Guitar / Bass
Ad. Dip. Mus., B.Teach
I have been playing guitar for 25 years (and teaching for 18 years!) and through a passion for all styles of music, have performed (among other things) blues, rock, jazz, funk, roots, electro and pop with innumerous bands…
Recent bandwork includes ‘TellTale’ (alt/ pop, on bass), ‘Wren’ (roots based, on ruan and banjo), ‘The Med School’ (synth pop, on guitar), ‘Hot Wings’ (surf rock, on guitar) and my solo project, ‘Garagee’ (instrumental electro-acoustic/ DJ, on all instruments, programming and production) and also a number of corporate bands (covers, on guitar).
I completed an Advanced Diploma of Music (Contemporary) at the Box Hill Institute College of Music and went on further to complete a Bachelor of Teaching at Melbourne Uni. , majoring in secondary level classroom music and instrumental guitar teaching. Ensuing teaching rounds and positions at Fairhills Secondary College, Blackburn Secondary College, Box Hill Tafe, Ron Leigh’s Music Factory, Billy Hydes and Mannys Music School have assisted me in developing a very focussed approach to teaching. Through these appointments I have taught students of all ages (4 – 72!) and skill levels. This has included coaching dozens of VCE students through their coursework, many of whom have been accepted to and/or continued on to tertiary studies and subsequent employment in the areas of music performance, sound production and music education.
