Robert has played with Clackmannan District Brass Band, the Clackmannan Brass Ensemble, Hillfoots Music for Youth and the Rosyth Concert Band and currently instructs at the 1st Tulliallan Boys' Brigade Band, and is the Staff Arranger and Principal Conductor of the Central Band of the Boys' Brigade in Scotland.

Robert has also been involved in military music, forming a Band with the Army Cadet Force, the first in Scotland for over two decades. He had the privilege of passing the Army Cadet Force Bandmasters' Course as top student in April 2008, and was appointed Bandmaster of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Battalion Army Cadet Force. He then moved from this position to form a Band with 383 (Alloa) Squadron, Air Training Corps.
