Robert Rogers Remembered

I was very saddened to hear about the recent passing of one of my most influential teachers and mentors, pianist Robert Rogers. Professor Rogers was one of the most encouraging voices in my undergraduate years at UBC, and it was his guidance and energy that eventually steered me in the direction of both collaborative piano and contemporary music. Many of Bob's students have successful careers in the fields of piano performance and pedagogy, and he will be remembered fondly.
