     Born in the summer of 1941, of Italian parents, Samuel and Ida Moffa, Robert, along with two brothers and a sister were reared on a farm in Southern New Jersey.

     In college he met his wife (to be) Mercedes Ann Sheets. She was also a musician and understood Roberts needs to perform and create music. They married in August of 1964, and were parents to three lovely daughters, Lana, Nicole and Mary, all of which have musical ability.  Presently (2008)  the Moffa's are blessed with six Grandchildren.

      Robert Moffa is an accomplished Composer, Pianist, Conductor and  a "natural" Improvisationalist on the piano.  (He has the unusual ability of creating music at the piano, hours on end, creating themes and developing them as he performs,  as did many great composers and pianist of past history.) Moffa also has the knowledge and ability to write his improvised music in "musical notation" by hand, along with all of the orchestra or concert band arranged parts and the complete orchestral score.  The score alone of the "American Farmers' Orchestral Suite", took him over forty hours to copy by hand.

        Robert Moffa's piano and orchestral works are considered to be of  

         ROMANTIC / CONTEMPORARY STYLE, and have always been well received by enthusiastic audiences. Not only does Moffa receive "STANDING" ovations, he has also received "CRYING" ovations ! This is due to the emotions he is able to portray to his audiences through his music.
