Biography

Robert Sanders was a composer, music teacher, conductor and organist. As a young boy he was trained as a pianist, as he had extremely acute hearing. At the age of nine he started composing for the Methodist Church in Chicago. In 1917-25 Sanders studied piano, first at the Bush Conservatory in Chicago, and then at the American Academy in Roma, where he married Austrian Marie Hiebl. He then studied further in Paris and returned to Chicago in 1933, where he became a lecturer and later a professor at the Conservatory. During this time Sanders became known for teaching in composition, counterpoint, orchestral and opera music.
