My Story and Skills


Where music and dreams come a live! Hello out there in the virtual world! This is Bob K coming to you from my Cellar Dweller Recording Studio. I’ve always had these sound waves, melodies, tunes, cascading soundscapes ringing in my ears. My musical influences are very wide indeed. Furthermore I grew up with Jimi, Page and Beck. Bach, Mozart, Chopin, and the great Debussy are also so dear to my ears. Certainly the great flamenco guitar players and classical guitar soloists play a great inherent influence when needed. There are so many more great musicians that I draw from. Above all I love music of all varieties shapes and forms. Finally this helps me create all of the different types of music that I compose and record. Please feel free to comment or drop me a line. All are welcome! Don’t worry I have thick lizard skin………..

I have taken lessons with Bob for four years now and he is one of the best teachers I have ever had and one of my favorites. He has taught me both guitar and piano and has helped me with my songwriting. I definitely recommend Bob if you want to learn how to play some good music!


Our daughter loved taking piano lessons from Mr. Bob! He is a wonderful instructor, he makes them feel comfortable and relaxed. She looked forward to going to lessons every week & Bob Kuehnling is a wonderful instructor.
