Where are you on your musical journey?

Hi there

I’m Robert, and I’m lucky to have been a professional musician since the age of 16.  But if my name is Robert, why is my website called Ted’s List?!?

In 2015 I became a Dad. Teddy entered the world and has since gone on to love music as much as I do.  Music is my life and passion, touring the world as a conductor and pianist, performing with the most amazing talents on this planet. But how could I help Teddy’s friends and parents with their musical education?  Ted’s List is the answer.

I have a thriving career as a musician, so I don’t need to ‘sell you’ music lessons or expensive courses to make money.  My friends and I can simply give real advice as pro-musicians, and that’s what makes us different.

Get the 4 Things I’ve Been Loving, Using and Reviewing

Instruments, Gadgets, Books and More…

Every Friday, I send out an exclusive email with the four most amazing things I’ve reviewed or used that week.

It could include exclusive giveaways or chances to interact with me, instruments, books, gadgets, music, new techniques/tricks, and — of course — all sorts of fun musical stuff I dig up from around the world.

These 4-Feature Friday’ emails are only available if you subscribe to my e-mail newsletter.

Robert D.C. Emery (sometimes known as RDCE) is a conductor, pianist and serial entrepreneur.

He is lucky enough to travel the world; ranging from performances in London’s Royal Albert Hall, through to the Sydney Opera House, he has seen them all. 

Besides being a professional musician, he is the Founder & Director of The Arts Group; one of the most diverse entertainment companies in the UK.  Within the portfolio is a national music tuition agency, symphony orchestra, choir, artist agency, record label and production company. 

Aside from that, he lives in London and Berkshire, has a wife (Mrs E), a toddler (Master Teddy), a baby (Master Atticus) and 4 cats.
