Dr. Robert Nasta received his formal musical training at the Berklee College of Music, Boston, MA; Wesleyan University, Middletown, CT.-M.A., Ethnomusicology/Composition, and the Hartt School of Music, West Hartford, CT.-D.M.A., Composition/Music Theory.
He has performed in a variety of musical settings, and has been featured as a multi-instrumentalist performing on a wide range of instruments—from guitar, to various “world” instruments; including the Japanese Koto, Turkish Oud, Greek Bouzouki, as well as other percussion and string instruments. As an educator, Robert has taught at the middle school, high school, and college levels, and he has been an adjunct lecturer in music at Middlesex Community College since 1999. Since 2003, he has been the Musical Director for the international non-profit organization, Artists for World Peace. In this capacity his position has allowed him to support the education of students majoring in music in college, here in the United States, as well as in Nepal.
Robert is thrilled to share his passion for teaching music at the Community Music School.
