"I had piano lessons with Mr. Gilman. Apart from being an excellent and (very) patient teacher, he understand to motivate and inspire you for the music you play!"


"in:takt music institute", Germany


"Mr. Gilman tought violin, viola and piano forte at our institute. Due to his outstanding qualifications, his uncomplicated manner and his flexibility, Mr. Gilman enjoyed an excelent reputation among students, colleagues and the school management. He perfectly integrated into the team and contributed his own ideas. What deserves particular mentioning is his friendly chracter and his high level of professional expertise, which he always applied at the best."




"Ros helped me to find and go my own way as a composer, rather than impose his own (or someone else's) style on me. He knows how to motivate and be (constructively) critical at the same time."


Kate (27)


I had composition classes with Ros in Munich. I am a professional musician myself (pianist) and it was therefor very important to me to find a highly qualified teacher. I was really lucky to find Ros - he is a highly committed and reliable teacher with a profound knowledge in the areas of classical AND modern music. He finds an individual approach to his studens and (at least in my case).




I am a beginner violinist and had a lot of fun learning the instrument with Mr. Gilman! Although Mr. Gilman is a classically trained violinist, we mostly played the kind of music that I prefered (which is non-classical).




"What´s special about Ros, is that he manages to reveal to you the little (as well as big) tricks in composition&music production, that you will not find in any book out there. Made my music so much better!"
