I have been teaching in the SE Massachusetts and Rhode Island area since 1996 and continue to serve as adjunct faculty percussion ensemble director and drum-line instructor for local school systems in Seekonk and East Providence.

I also play bass for


New England's Premiere Chicago Tribute Band.

“My son, John, started percussion lessons with Rob in 5th grade. Rob is an outstanding teacher and gave my son the fundamentals to be successful in school music classes. John has gone on to be the youngest Drumline Captain in DRRHS history, and he has been accepted to and performed with various state-level concert bands and symphonies. Both of my children have also participated with Rob’s Mallet Maniacs Community Percussion Ensemble and have loved that experience. John will be starting college in the fall with a musician scholarship. We are very grateful to Rob’s professionalism, dedication to teaching music and guidance along the way. He makes learning fun and I highly recommend his classes."

"My son Landyn has been a student of Robert Martin’s for over 6 years.  He has always been patient and kind to my son.  Robert has always pushed my son do to better.  He is very talented, he is not only my son’s drum teacher but also has my son learning how to play the piano.  I appreciate that he makes my son’s weekly lessons fun and exciting.  My son never complains about going to his lesson.  I would highly recommend Robert Martin, you will not only be learning a lot but you will enjoy your lessons."

-Tina S.

"We could not ask for a more engaging and professional piano teacher for our daughter. She looks forward to her piano lesson every week! We are very thankful we found Rob to be her instructor."
-Simon T.

“My favorite part of my lesson is getting to learn new songs that I haven’t heard before and Mr. Rob makes it fun.”  -Andrew R., 8 yrs old

 -Carolyn R.

"Rob Martin is a gifted musician who understands how to teach to kids so they grow into talented musicians too."

-Hilary F.

"We started drum lessons with Rob almost a year ago, and he was super flexible to do virtual lessons at first.  Simon was engaged the entire lesson with new techniques that he found interesting.  Rob really has a great way with his students, letting them make choices about their learning while constantly moving them forward!  We are so happy that Simon is learning and enjoying this great life skill of music."

-Susan L.

"I have seen my son’s musical ability grow tremendously since starting his drum lessons with Rob two years ago. Rob is professional and is always willing to work with our busy family schedule."

-Stacey M.

"Drum lessons with Rob have been great for my son.  I think the beat and rhythm are great for him with his anxiety, but the way Rob works with him, even on an off day is incredible."

-Megan D.

"I know Shawn loved going to Thursday lessons and group on Sundays.  We would get dinner before lessons every week.  It’s something we miss very much now that he’s in college!"
