Robert has also competed in numerous Cogen Concerto, Misbin Chamber Music, and Marlin-Engel competitions, earning numerous honorable mentions and second place in 2021 and 2022 in the Senior Division of the Marlin-Engel piano competition. Robert’s consistent piano performance and preparation have earned him a Distinction level rating for every jury from level 2-10.
