Teachers at the Old Town School

Rob Newhouse

Wiggleworms Program

In addition to teaching Wiggleworms, Rob plays guitar, piano and drums and has been writing, recording and performing music since 1975. Formerly with the Elvis Brothers, Rob has recorded three albums and toured worldwide. He appears on the Old Town School's CD, Song for Wiggleworms. and Laura Doherty’s In A Heartbeat.

In the fall of '98 Rob was looking for a music job that didn't involve playing in bars. His pal Ralph Covert sez, "You should do Wiggleworms!"..."Wiggle wut?", said Rob...After observing a few classes he jumped in; it was his entry to kids music...and it's still fun and rewarding in so many ways.

Rob says, “Kids, they keep it real, and as y'all know, a great class with fun grownups and sweet kids is like a balm for the soul...It's easy to be cynical in this increasingly savage world; a dose of WWorms tends to melt that away...”

Started at the Old Town School in September of 1998
