At the tender age of 1 1/2 years Robert Neumair already got in touch with his father's accordion. One year later the picture with his own instrument and the hat was taken. When Robert was 3 years old, his father taught him how to play a Styrian harmonica. And the yound musician did it so well that he was soon able to play in public.
No wonder that Robert needed a new musical challenge when he was 6 years old. He found it - it was the piano and his teacher Bruno Elzenbaumer. Later he called him "the best teacher I ever had". But this was still not enough, because one year later he started learning trumpet with Kurt Haller.
At the age of 13 he went to professor Erich Rinner at Innsbruck music academy and entered the symphonic orchestra of Bavarian Radio as a trainee to get useful practical experience for his music career.
