Rob began his musical career in the Salvation Army, learning to play cornet and then trombone at Southall Citadel in London. He played in the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain before entering the Royal College of Music. On completion of his studies, he joined the Royal Air Force Music Services and became the Principal Trombone of the Central Band. After seven years as a player, he decided to concentrate his energies on conducting and became a Director of Music for the RAF.

He has directed the Band of the RAF Regiment, the Western Band of the RAF and the Central Band of the RAF. His promotion to Principal Director of Music, Royal Air Force, in January 1998, made him the twelfth in a line of distinguished musicians who have held this prestigious post and, on appointment, the youngest since Sir George Dyson in 1919. He was awarded the OBE for services to Royal Air Force Music in 2002.

Rob is presently Professor of Conducting at the Royal Military School of Music, Kneller Hall and also teaches postgraduate conducting, composition and arranging.
