Trevor Charles Rabin (born 13 January 1954) is a South African-born musician, best known as a guitarist, vocalist and songwriter for the British progressive rock band Yes from 1983–1994, and since then, as a film composer.
Rabin comes from a family of classical musicians in Johannesburg, South Africa, where his father Godfrey was lead violinist for the Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra and also a lawyer. Educated at a public school in Johannesburg, he took formal piano training before discovering the guitar at age 12. He joined one of his first bands The Other when he was 13. His parents encouraged his talents toward rock music, although Rabin would maintain his interest in classical music throughout his career.
