Rumplestiltz learned to play the cello from a very young age and by junior-high had developed an ear for Hip-Hop. He soon realized that by using his classical training and theory/composition background, he was able to compose unique Hip-Hop instrumentals. Rumplestiltz later attended U of T and Canada’s Royal Conservatory for Music Performance on cello. Rumplestiltz now plays in orchestras, teaches cello, composes movie scores, works as a studio musician, performs live shows and is a member of Babylon Warchild.
