About Biography

I am a performer, songwriter  and guitar instructor living in Northeast Minneapolis. Along with performing as a soloist, I am a member of two different groups; Step Rockets and Soul Tree.  Step Rockets is an original indie rock band and Soul Tree is a variety band, both based in Minneapolis.  I play around 150+ shows a year in bars, clubs, weddings and private events.

My musical interests brought me to Perpich Center for the Arts music program, McPhail music program, McNally Smith Music College and later studying under Paul Esch.  After College I became the resident guitar instructor at St. Barnabas Center for the Arts in Plymouth, Minnesota and continue to teach private lessons in Minneapolis, St. Paul and the surrounding areas.

Lessons What We Do



    • Philosophy 

I love playing the guitar!  I find great joy in passing on this passion to anyone who has an interest in playing.  I enjoy being able to shape the lesson to suit whatever goals the student has in mind. Learning how to play your favorite songs (all the way through!), develop your song writing skills,  learning how to read music, or understanding how music theory works on your guitar. I would love to show you how much fun it is to play!

Seasons Changing

As the seasons are changing and the smell of the siberian air mixed with the falling leaves I have been enjoying some classical guitar.  Terrega, Carcassi, and a little Bach on classical guitar.  I’ve studied a few pieces and relate it to climbing a mountain.  Each new phrase is difficult and a feeling of great accomplishment when performed correctly.  The view from the top of a great climb is that much more sweet because of the struggle to get there.


Make a cup of tea and check out these tunes:

Robert Westaway – Prelude in E major – J.S. Bach

Robert Westaway – Romanza

Robert Westaway – Capricho Arabe – Francisco Tarrega
