Robbie began studying percussion at 14, and started his journey playing in concert bands. Currently he attends the RCS Junior Conservatoire studying orchestral percussion, and has played with the National Youth Orchestras of Scotland Senior Orchestra, West of Scotland Schools’ Symphony Orchestra and Amicus Orchestra. His brass banding journey started in 2018 in the Second Section of the Scottish Championships with Croy Silver Band, and a year later joined the cooperation band for the 2019 Scottish Championships. Joining the band in 2019 has been an excellent experience for Robbie. Since joining he has had the opportunity to play some of the finest brass band repertoire alongside some of the country’s most talented musicians, and has enjoyed being able to play a role in the band’s success.
