Rob Costlow

About Rob Costlow: By the time he was twelve, Rob Costlow was trying his piano instructor’s patience by adding his own endings to songs during lessons and recitals. "I literally despised taking lessons and especially practicing other people's music. It just wasn’t for me. I had so many notes running through my head, I wanted to create my own music," admits Rob. This soon brought an end to the lessons that began at age five. Rob realized that his musical future was going to take a different path than the one set by his teachers.

Rob is a true Hoosier born and raised in Indiana. Growing up in a large family helped Rob become focused and tenacious. As the youngest of six boys, Rob got used to seizing every opportunity that came his way. In fact, it was one of Rob’s brothers that introduced him to the music of platinum selling artist George Winston. "It was so different than typical piano music," says Costlow. "It helped give me the courage to try my own hand at composition. I said to myself 'I can do this!' It was an immediate outlet to express myself.”

And times weren’t always easy for Rob growing up. Rob lost his mother to ovarian cancer when he was eleven. Even as a young boy, seeing his mother’s constant courage in the face of such adversity really affected Rob and had a huge impact on his life and music.

While Rob has come a long way since his childhood lessons, his love for creating original compositions is still at the heart of his contemporary piano music.
