Bob Coulon has been passionate about teaching piano and giving students the tools they need to excel in music since 1990. That’s 26 years of experience teaching young and old, at all levels! He attended Temple University for Music Education and expanded his studies under renowned jazz musician and educator Jimmie Amadie. Bob has worked professionally as a keyboardist with various bands around the country since the 70’s and is currently a member of the Dane Anthony Band. Mr.C, as his students like to call him, has also been the Music Director of the praise band at the United Methodist Church of Absecon since 1999.
His lessons focus on note reading, rhythm, harmony and music theory. Students at the beginner level are methodically guided using the Alfred’s and Bastein series. At the intermediate and advanced levels, students have the opportunity to study famous classical pieces, giving them the technique necessary to perform the rhythmically challenging popular music of today. Over the years Bob has created a large catalogue of personalized piano arrangements that are only available to his students. He believes that teaching in a positive and friendly environment allows students to enjoy piano while learning the skills they need to become successful and dynamic students of music.
