What Teachers Say about the Improv Workshop:

I have experienced an absolute breakthrough in my playing and teaching as a result of Robin's composition and improvisation workshop. Before working with her, I felt anxious and intimidated each time I would try to compose a song or improvise on the piano. Thanks to the depth and quality of her experience as a teacher and coach, I now think of comp and improv as puzzles and adventures waiting to be put together and explored anew each time I sit down to play. Best of all, I have a new command over the language and skills needed to effectively teach composition and improvisation to my students... and it's made playing more meaningful and joyful for all of us! -

I had the chance to take a Comp & Improv workshop with Robin, and it opened up a new world for me and my students. I come from a traditional background, so I have always felt a bit intimidated and overwhelmed by the composition and improvisation streams. Robin helped me see how easy and accessible and fun it could be for me and my students. She gave me lots of practical tips, tricks and assignments. She helped me transform something daunting into something do-able. Since the workshop, my students and I have all made such huge strides, and I am thankful to Robin for her encouragement and inspiration.

Testimonial...
Robin is an amazing teacher. When I came to her, I was new to teaching Simply Music and fearful of doing it wrong. I was having no problems learning and teaching the Foundations, but the composition, improvisation and taking my students into Reading Rhythm and Reading Notes made me very nervous. Through our sessions, Robin addressed each area of my concern by approaching each lesson with me as student and her as teacher. Thereby, not just telling me what to do with my students, but allowing me to experience what it felt and sounded like on the other side of the bench. She offered a wonderful balance of addressing my hesitations and assigning projects that I felt were out of my reach. Through it all, she coached, encouraged, and allowed me to make mistakes and discover solutions on my own with her guidance. Through our short term of lessons, I learned everything I initially asked, and more. I discovered that I am very much more capable and creative than I thought. I have continued the skills learned with Robin through composing some new arrangements of pieces, joining a rock band and playing from lead sheets, and confidently instructing my students into the broader world of music than just the Foundation Levels. Robin is a master teacher with a supportive and encouraging personality and energy that feeds her student’s confidence and skills.
