My name is Rob Blythe

As an organist and accompanist, I founded Musical Contexts in 2008 where my passion and drive for creating quality music resources was realised.  I have taught music in schools in Surrey, Hampshire, London and Northumberland and along with my Cert Ed. gained a First Class Honours in Music and Classical Studies with the Open University in 2013. 

I continue to perform as a freelance organist in and around London.
