Information About Robyn - Petersfield teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Robyn:
I am a music tutor and vocal teacher based in the Petersfield area and can travel within West Sussex, Surrey, and Hampshire as well as Central London.Whether you are studying for GCSEs or A-Levels, just starting out and wish to improve your singing, or need some extra help with aural skills, I am here to help. Offering one-to-one tutoring I am an adaptable, organised and enthusiastic tutor who’s friendly and approachable and happy to tailor my teaching to your needs and pace.
In 2015 I graduated with a first-class honours degree in music from Kings College, London, and in 2017 gained my MSc in the neuropsychology of music from Goldsmiths, University of London. My studies included psychology, neuroanatomy, musicology, music theory, aural skills, composition techniques, analysis, and essay writing, as well as performance.
Prior to my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees I studied classical voice at the Royal Northern College of Music and have continued my performance training at Royal Academy of Music under the tutelage of Vocal Professor Glenville Hargreaves. My principal study is singing and I have a wide experience from classical solo to close-harmony ensemble and jazz.
Working as a section leader in the National Youth Choir of Great Britain has given me experience in delivering vocal tuition, musicianship and theory training to aspiring young musicians. I enjoy developing and nurturing young talent, and helping students understand concepts and achieve their goals. I have also had experience as a director and chorus master, leading warmups and vocal workshops.
Throughout my education, I have enjoyed both the performance and academic aspects of music and believe the two are inextricably linked. Being a good musician means not only playing well and practising but endeavouring to understand the theoretical basis of music too. This informs your performance choices and can enrich musical experiences.
Music is a subject that encourages interaction and creativity, transferable skills that are tools for life, and it is my belief that music is a core subject that can aid other studies. For more information on how other academic studies can benefit from engaging in musical activity please see a recent research project by Opera North.
