Biography

Born in 1984 and hailing from West Yorkshire, UK, Robert studied organ at the Royal Northern College of Music with Darius Battiwalla, where he graduated in 2006.

Excelling on both classical and theatre organ, Robert has performed extensively throughout the UK on both instruments, including London, Manchester, County Durham and Wales. He has also performed in Indianapolis and San Francisco in the USA.

Through his active involvement with the theatre organ, Robert has won numerous competitions on the instrument. These include the British Young Theatre Organist of the Year Competition (1996) and the Junior and Intermediate sections of the Young Theatre Organist competition (1998 and 2001 respectively), an event held annually by the American Theatre Organ Society (ATOS).

Robert has also been very fortunate to receive scholarships from the ATOS in order to assist with his musical studies, as well as having been awarded the Ian Sutherland Award in 2003. This is presented by the Cinema Organ Society and recognises achievement and promise exhibited by young theatre organists.

Robert has been fortunate to perform in Masterclasses given by such distinguished organists as David Briggs, Dame Gillian Weir and Olivier Latry and has also had lessons from Jacques van Oortmerssen in Amsterdam, where he studied the organ music of J.S. Bach.

Since completing his degree, Robert has been working extensively as a freelance musician, regularly performing gigs and concerts across the UK. Leading his own jazz trio, in which he plays piano, Robert uses this group as a vehicle for experimenting with new styles and sounds, whilst also performing more traditional jazz standards. Fascinated and inspired by the music of the Middle East particularly Sufi music Robert tries to incorporate these elements with jazz to form the basis of his own compositions.

Most recently, Robert has been commissioned to compose the scores for various short international films, which has given him opportunity to further develop his passion for orchestration.
