Hello! I'm Rob Hall and I write music alongside freelance performing, teaching and examining. I'm raising funds for a new piano.
Lately i've had some piano music published with Spartan Press and in the ABRSM piano syallabus, and I'm busy writing new music for a variety of instruments on a rather old and worn out piano I inherited from a friend.
My goal is to raise enough funds to part fund a quality instrument as it's my central tool for composition. I can't afford to buy a good piano outright so I am looking for donations to raise around half the cost. The rest I will fund myself.
When I have access to good pianos such as the one in the video, housed at the Society of Musicians Edinburgh, I can achieve a much wider spectrum of sound which helps me to realise musical ideas.
It will also be a major benefit to the musical development of my three children, two of which play piano at Grade5/6 level and another who is taking National 5 music.
If you feel able to make a donation - of any amount - to help an up and coming composer in his work I will be incredibly grateful.
You'll find me on YouTube (not the mountaineer!) or you can go to my site www.robhall.co.uk and listen to a wide variety of tracks on the audio player by clicking on the arrow button in the menu.
Donors of £30 or more can sponsor a piano key of their choice (e.g. Bb in 3rd octave)
Donors of £50 or more can claim a free CD and sponsor a piano key
Donors of £100 or more can claim a free CD, sponsor up to 3 piano keys, and receive a special dedication in a future publication.
Thank you and enjoy the music !
