Bob is an active JazzPianoSkills Member, Jazz Pianist, and lifelong lover of music. Although encouraged as a child by his mother to study classical and jazz guitar, Bob was lured away from music by his love of literature. He studied poetry at the University of California, Berkeley, and creative writing at U. C. Irvine.
For 35 years Bob taught literature and film studies at Whatcom Community College in Washington State. In mid-career, Bob rediscovered his passion for music and began taking classical piano lessons, and later turned to jazz.
Now retired, Bob devotes several hours a day to studying and playing jazz on his beloved 1923 Steinway baby grand.
