Born to a large musical family, Rob gave his first solo recital at 10 years old, performed in the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on the Disney Channel with the Disney Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra, and founded a piano trio that performed actively throughout his teenage years. Rob has won first prize at numerous music competitions and has soloed with orchestras throughout the West including the Utah Symphony and San Diego Chamber Orchestra. As a first violinist of the BYU Chamber Orchestra, Rob performed in more than twenty cities throughout central and southern Europe, and as concertmaster of the orchestra, gave a concert to a sold-out audience in New York’s Carnegie Hall. Rob was awarded full scholarships to attend Brigham Young University and Rice University where he earned a Bachelor’s in Music and Master’s in Music, respectively.
While studying at Rice, Rob began covering rock and pop music, and upon returning to Salt Lake City after graduation, began playing with a loop pedal which he uses to create intricate and stunning arrangements of popular music. Since then, he has won numerous awards for his arrangements, performed at New York Fashion Week, the Sundance Film Festival, toured internationally, and has garnered nearly 10 million views on his YouTube channel.
