His work has been commissioned by the London Festival of Contemporary Church Music, the choir of St Bride Fleet Street, and the choir of St John of Jerusalem South Hackney. When not playing the organ or writing music, Robert teaches piano, voice, and organ at the New London Performing Arts Centre and plays poker.
