Portland native Robert Bomstad is a passionate musician who is dedicated towards making new music and teaching future generations to play the piano. While Robert began playing piano at age ten, he’s now in his final term at Portland State University and is about to receive his bachelor's degree in music. Robert hopes to make people just as excited about music and the piano as he was when he began his studies.
Robert plans to continue developing his compositional voice and performance style while teaching in Portland. His performances elicit positive responses from organizations such as Oregon Arts Watch who stated “Bomstad’s pyrotechnics... brought down the house.” While other local organizations such as Piano Push Play have labeled him as an “amazing pianist”.
To hear Robert play around town you can try to catch him at local music events such as Classical Revolution’s chamber jams, the Portland Piano Players meetups, or the masterclass series at Classic Pianos; “Wednesday’s with Westcott”.
