Rob Loar

Trumpet and Guitar 

Rob began his professional career serving with the United States 3rd Infantry Division Band in Wurzburg, Germany.  He performed as both trumpet player and vocalist.  After his tour of Europe was over, he studied music theory and education as well as trumpet performance at the University of Illinois.

For the past 20+ years, Rob has been a performing professional musician in and around the Chicago area, sometimes playing as many as 125 dates a year.  He currently manages and leads the band Soda, which performs at weddings, festivals, private events and clubs in the metro area.

For trumpet instruction, Rob stresses the fundamentals of breathing, articulation and technique and works to help the student develop the proper interpretation of the stylistic elements of the jazz and classical repertoire.  For guitar instruction, Rob presents a populist approach that looks to have the student learn and play current and classic songs within a very short time.
