Bob Milne is an American ragtime musician and concert pianist. Considered as a "very good specialist of ragtime boogie",[1] he was referred to as a "national treasure" after he was interviewed and documented for future generations by the U.S. Library of Congress in 2004.[2][3]

Experiments conducted by Penn State neuroscientist Kerstin Bettermann established that Milne has the unusual ability to mentally "play" up to 4 symphonies in his head simultaneously.[2][4][5]
