Five Minutes With: Vancouver Pianist Robert Koziel

Already at the age of five, Robert Koziel knew that his only passion would be music, piano and orchestra, and at the age of eight, he wrote a letter to himself that he would become a famous composer. As a very young boy, he had new music come to him from time to time and, interestingly, in his late thirties and early forties started recording his music (the same music from his childhood) in a studio in Oakville, Ontario, and at the same time, played as a volunteer at a hospital in Oakville for over 3 years, and it was there that he met people who led him further into music all the way to Vancouver. Currently, Robert is a member of the music agency SIEGEL Entertainment in Vancouver.
