He began his teaching career at a Christian school in Aurora, Colorado where he taught general music, speech and drama, instrumental music, and directed musicals such as Annie, Fiddler on the Roof and Sound of Music, just to name a few.

After serving as the Children's Pastor for 6 years, he helped to pioneer a new church plant from Lakeview and began teaching private instrumental lessons in the public schools as well.
In 2006 Pastor Bob and his wife , Debbie, felt a call to plant a family integrated church in franklin, TN. Coming along with him and his lovely wife, came his gift for teaching music to children. He presently teaches in Spring Hill, Nashville, Mufreessboro and Smyrna.
