Information About Robyn - Hampstead teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Robyn:
Robyn is a Scottish Horn player from Edinburgh and is currently a freelance musician based in London. She is an active member of the Connaught Brass quintet, which formed in 2017 during her first year as a student at the Royal Academy of Music. In 2018, the quintet won the Worshipful company of Musicians Brass Ensemble Prize, as well as playing in concerts in and around London, and touring in Dordogne in France. This year Connaught Brass will return to France in August for another series of concerts.
Since 2017 she has been highly involved with the charity Street Orchestra Live and raised sponsors for their summer tour by completing a month’s long spoken silence in June 2017. As well as playing with the orchestra, she has been a representative on the player’s committee, a fixer for the orchestra and is currently on the repertoire committee for their summer tour.
As soon as she graduates, Robyn will enrol in Alexander Teacher Training under Anthony Kingsley. Her aim is to be a fully qualified practitioner of the technique, as she is eager to be able to offer therapy to fellow musicians, actors, and dancers. Alongside Alexander Technique work, Robyn aims to become an accomplished chamber and solo artist. She has an interest in performance art and would like to incorporate acting into her performances. She is currently collaborating with a fellow musician and composer over a new work which will be written for solo horn – incorporating vocal and physicality into the composition.
In her free time, Robyn enjoys Bouldering, and runs a student bouldering group called RAM Monkeys.
Previously, Robyn worked as an assistant Dalcroze teacher for classes of children aged 5-10, but her primary speciality is private horn lessons. She is currently studying the LRAM music teaching qualification, and would like to take on more pupils this year, as she has more time for teaching.
(speaking in first person now… !)
My approach to teaching is a democratic one. I want to encourage musical passion, and make my lessons as collaborative as possible. Every student is different, and my way of teaching will change to suit the pupil. Whether doing music for fun, for coordination practice, concentration, or social skills, it is my aim as a teacher to help my students feel good about learning something new!
