Robert is a violist with the London Symphony Orchestra. He is also a passionate believer in music education and has taught at both Junior and Senior departments of the Royal College of Music as well as at Guildhall School of Music & Drama. He has given masterclasses and coached at the Dartingon summer festival, and for chamber music projects at schools in Hackney and Camden. Last year he very much enjoyed being a guest teacher at the Arpeggione viola course.

Creative music making in schools, both mainstream and special needs, is important to him and he has been involved with many schools across London through the LSO’s education department, LSO Discovery, which has recently taken him as far afield as Japan. He has been a viola tutor on orchestral courses in the UK, Aix-en-Provence and Florida.
