welcome! i'm rob knopper. i play percussion in the met orchestra, and i was once hailed by the new york times and james levine as needing 'louder triangle notes.'

i also write things for keen and motivated musicians like yourself. i failed my way through years of unsuccessful auditions and rejected applications before i got my job at the met, so my goal is to help you get where you're going quicker and smarter than i did. i truly think that any one of you could achieve a job like mine.
