Robert Aitken, born
in Canada, studied flute with Nicholas Fiore at the Royal Concervatory

Wilkins and Julius Baker, he met the eminent french flutist and
pedagogue Marcel Moyse, whom he considers his major teacher. He
spent four summers at the Marlboro Festival with Moyse and innumerable
other periods af time which Aitken considers as nine intensive years
with a continuing relationship until his death. When Moyse returned
to Europe in 1964 for the first Boswil classes, Aitken received
a Canada Council grant which enabled him to spent further time with
Moyse as well as studying for four month periods with Jean-Pierre
Rampal, Severino Gazzelloni, André Jaunet and Hubert Barwasher.
