I was Sir Robert's student for around 4 years in Davao City, Philippines. During that time, I learned a lot about various violin techniques and improved my artistry in playing the violin. Sir Robert would teach me the proper techniques and interpretation of classical pieces as well as skill of improvisation. He pays great attention to detail on the fundamentals, posture, intonation and articulation. I was also able to join the UIC Orchestra led by Sir Robert as a conductor. He taught me how to play in an orchestra and listen to other instruments. This opportunity helped me build my confidence and I gained a lot of exposure by performing in an orchestra at concerts and wedding events. Sir Robert is a great and inspiring violin teacher that will help you reach greater heights.
