When he isn’t practicing or teaching, Robert enjoys fishing, reading, films, and being outdoors. Along with his lifelong devotion to music, Robert also strongly believes life is about “health, love, happiness, and refined passion.” He lives in Toronto with his wife, Andrea, and their three young children.

“Robert Horvath is a musician who’s superb technical skills allow him to explore music with exceptional insight while making it appear effortless…. His interpretations are quite personal … clearly seeking the heart of the music … a truly gifted pianist.”
Glenn Morley, multi award-winning composer/music producer
