Rob Satori conducts his life like a sheet of music.

While the score shows passages of presto and of adagio, Satori’s passion for music remains his reprise.

“When I was a young kid, about 7 years old, I had just started playing piano,” Satori says. “I said to my mom, ‘I want to be a great composer like Bach, Beethoven or Mozart.’ But, I added: I want to be a living one, not a dead one. That cracked my parents up.”

At 55, Satori’s aspirations haven’t changed, but most of his other musical endeavors — leading the music program at Unity of Sarasota church and disc jockeying, for example — pay the bills.

But Satori’s compositional skills, in particular, have seen success in recent weeks. His classical piece, “Requiem for the Cherubim,” has landed at the top of the classical/romantic category chart on, a music publishing opportunity-site from which publishers seek material from musicians for radio, film and television.

Satori wrote the piece nearly 20 years ago, after learning about the Oklahoma City bombing in April 1995.

“It was like my hands rose on their own and went to the keyboard,” Satori recalls, adding he wrote the song in memory of the victims. “I went with it.”

He put the disc away but after finding it a few months ago he reworked the song using symphonic sounds on new equipment.

He hopes to have the piece scored for a full orchestra soon, in time for the 20th anniversary of the bombing that inspired it.

In the meantime, Satori, owner of Rob Satori Entertainment, continues along a musical path. He explains his work as a tree of music, with his passion for music as the tree’s trunk and his musical ventures as its branches: piano lessons, songwriting, leading a church music program and even playing piano at assisted-living facilities — a business he developed after visiting his father, who had Alzheimer’s disease, in one and playing piano for him as a way to communicate.

“I get to do what I love to do; it’s nice,” Satori says. “It’s a lot of work.”

But writing music remains Satori’s utmost passion.

“I made a commitment to myself this year to write daily,” he says. “If I had my druthers, I’d write music all day.”

“I write whatever I feel led to write, which is quite diverse,” he adds.

His song list spans genres, from classical/romantic to pop to patriotic to country. The pieces published on Broadjam, for example, can be selected for soundtracks, commercials, movies or purchased just for listening.

Satori says he’ll keep writing until his lifelong goal is fulfilled.

“When you represent the God idea — the creative idea to its finest — you have to carve it, cut it and scrape it and build it,” Satori says. “Once it’s just right, you have to cook it again. That prods me to make the music better.”

“I still have yet to reach my millions of people,” he says. “But I’m not dead yet.”

Local composer records students from the Sarasota Orchestra Music Festival for top - ranking original classical work.

Bradenton, Florida - June 18, 2014 – Rob Satori’s brooding classical piece, “Requiem for the Cherubim” now ranking #1 on the Classical/Romantic Top 10 Chart. is a music publishing opportunity site where publishers seek material from songwriters and composers for Artists, Radio, Film and Television.  In addition to making the number one spot, Satori’s Requiem has been selected by several publishing firms in Los Angeles, CA.

Rob originally wrote the piece almost 20 years ago when he learned of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995.  Rob tells of that night, “I remember feeling such sadness for the children and the families that were directly affected by that senseless event.  I put my hands on the electronic keyboard I was recording on at the time and this is the music that came out.  It was sad and brooding, yet shifted in the middle to become very uplifting and inspirational.” 

Rob saved the disk on which he recorded the piece and found it a few months ago.  He re-recorded the piece using hi-tech and hi-touch symphonic library sounds of today, along with a few Sarasota Orchestra Music Festival students, Chung Yoo on clarinet and Thomas Stuart on Violin.

Satori, who directs the music program at Unity Church of Sarasota, heard the students when they performed there last Sunday.  “I thoroughly enjoyed their performance of Brahms, it was seamless!”  Rob commented, “I asked them if they would be interested in recording some parts to the Requiem and to my delight, they agreed.”  Rob hopes to have the piece scored for full orchestra soon, in time for the 20th anniversary of the OK City bombing.
