"Art isn't easy."

Robert's journey in the music world has taught him that to reach people, it's necessary to speak their language, and contribute something meaningful to the conversation.  Since returning to Portland, Maine in July of 2016, Robert has resumed teaching at the Portland Conservatory of Music where he previously worked from 2005 - 2010.  He recently finished writing an exciting new musical drama, and is actively promoting his latest composition, A DISTANT SHORE: a Musical Narrative for Piano in Five Episodes.  Prior to returning to Portland,  he spent 2010 - 2016 in the San Francisco Bay area teaching piano, music theory and composition privately and at local music schools while continuing to compose, perform, write, and produce recordings of his work.

Robert received a Bachelor's degree in music from the State University of New York at Oswego where he studied piano with Anthony Crain.  After exploring post baccalaureate study he returned home to New York City for seven years where he studied piano with concert pianist John Contiguglia, and composer Roland Trogan, and worked in the music industry.  Further details on Robert's background and examples of his work are available on the News page, Soundcloud and elsewhere on this website.

Robert's music is available online through iTunes, Amazon and other outlets and can be heard worldwide on Jango Internet Radio.
