Rob West Biography
Rob West is a Canadian composer of dark sound-scapes, lilting melodies, and works that often have a distinctly Canadian connection, as well as introspective compositions that often borrow sounds and ideas from the local surroundings and culture from Vancouver Canada.

Rob West trained as a classical guitarist under Michale Strutt (a former student of Julian Bream) and Hanh Nguyen (who studied with Leo Brouwer and Pepe Romero, among others), and studied composition with Douglas Gwynn Smith, John Korsrud, and Giorgio Magnanensi.

In 2013 Rob obtained his associates degree in classical guitar performance from Douglas College after completing the University Transfer diploma, and music certificate program. Rob teaches music lessons privately and is currently continuing his composition studies at Vancouver Community college with Giorgio Magnanensi and taking classical guitar lessons with Adrian Verdejo.

Rob has been an active musician in Vancouver for over 10 years: composing, performing, recording, and volunteering his time with local musicians, bands, and music students. Rob has some experience playing the: trumpet, trombone, f-horn, as well as the flute and has a firm understanding of classical and modern music theory, rhythm, and harmony.

Rob has a background in computer and internet programing which he utilizes to build custom software, apps, and websites to help his students, and colleagues, to accelerate their music growth, fluency, and music careers. Rob also built a not for profit social network and career self-management website for musicians, music students, and music teachers called Network4Musicians.com, and helps to manage it with four other local Vancouver musicians.

Rob has also performed locally with many different ensembles and has played in guitar ensembles for over 5 years straight. Rob continues to write, play, and teach music on a daily basis and continues to try to challenge himself to grow as a musician, a teacher, and as a composer.
