Verified profile

I started playing the violin at the age of 5. I have a huge amount of experience in playing classical, folk and pop music. I teach as well, and do my best to pass on my love and enthusiasm for music to my students. I've had great feedback and complements from all of the events I have performed at, highlighting my professionalism, choice of repertoire, and comments left by their guests.

Rob was very professional. He took time to learn a particular piece of music that our bride had written and performed and she was absolutely delighted to hear it played on the violin. We can't rate him highly enough, we'd certainly book him again.

I've seen Rob play on many occasions. His versatility is outstanding. He plays classical music, folk music, bluegrass & Americana all with equal verve & great ability. He always conducts himself professionally & has a way of endearing himself to an audience both with his musicianship & his personality. Whatever you need a violinist for, Rob will fit the bill.

Rob was amazing! I could spend all day listening to him. He befriended my 6 year old, kept in contact with regard to choice of music. Rob was polite and friendly throughout. I would recommend him for anyone thinking of music for their event. (10 / 10) Sam Towning
