Bob Elliott - Workshop/Jam Coordinator & President of Music Makers
Bob Elliott is the founder and President of Music Makers NY. Bob is an accomplished guitar player and vocalist. He created the Music Makers Method of ensemble instruction which has helped thousands of recreational musicians experience the love and joy of playing with others. Bob also developed a system whereby anyone with basic chord knowledge can easily play songs with others. He has produced Performance Shows debuting the talents of thousands of Music Makers students at The Bitter End for the last 20 years. Music Makes is home to the largest and most diverse music community in New York City, with students ranging in age from 8 to 80.
Bob's love of music was the driving force in creating a music complex where kids and adults could not only take lessons but learn how to play with others in a band setting. He was drawn to the enthusiasm of non-professional musicians of all skill levels. “Since 1997 I’ve lost count as to how many musicians I’ve taken to the stage with our live shows.”
Bob is also the inventor of GuitarDocks, a small portable guitar stand exclusively distributed by D’Addario.
