About

About

Hi, my name is Robert! I am a conductor, singer, composer and teacher based in London. I started learning piano when I was about 3 years old and studied at Junior Guildhall until the age of 8. I then sang as a chorister in the choir of New College, Oxford, where I also began to play the cello. During my teens, I continued to sing and compose, and also played in many ensembles including the Thames Vale Youth Orchestra.

At the University of Manchester, I began to study conducting, eventually directing the University chamber choir, Ad Solem, as well as working with other choral ensembles, and the University’s baroque and symphony orchestras. During this time I also sang in the Genesis Sixteen choral program, which offered intensive training for elite young choral singers led by The Sixteen.

I have been teaching singing, piano, cello and conducting privately ever since graduating, as well as directing several choirs and ensembles. I have also completed a conducting scholarship with the Leeds Festival Chorus, and a fellowship program with the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain, for whom I am regularly employed as a singer, conductor and coach.

I can offer singing and conducting tuition at all standards, and piano and cello up to about grade 5.

I’ve been having piano tuition from Robert as an adult learner for the last 2 years. Robert is gifted and talented musician and teacher. His lessons are a wonderful mix of encouragement, support and challenge. I’d highly recommend him.
