Robin is a versatile violinist performing Klezmer, folk fiddle and improvised music as well as classical.
The communication between myself and Robin was very good. And was very happy with the music he played. Everyone had a really good night. My only slight negative is that is was a bit too quiet. But I would recommend Robin for your party for sure.
As a performer, I play regularly across the UK in bands and as a soloist ranging styles from Irish, Scottish and English fiddle, folk-jazz fusion, Klezmer, country and bluegrass, as well as continuing my lifelong interest in classical music. I offer a very high standard of performance along with a professional and reliable attitude. I perform regularly at birthday party's, weddings and corporate events as well as being involved in community music projects. I started studying the violin at the age of 5 and was taught according to the Suzuki method. As my classical studies progressed, I went on to achieve ABRSM Grade 8 whilst in high school. I continued my musical studies at the University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), achieving a 2:1 BA (Hons). Throughout my time at SOAS, I primarily focussed on North Indian classical and Klezmer music. I studied Klezmer violin with the London Klezmer Quartet violinist, Ilana Cravitz. For my final year recital, I achieved a high 1st class grade. Following graduation, I continued to pursue my love of Indian classical music, spending 6 months in India studying Raga with the Varanasi based musician, Sanjay Mishra. This period of study has equipped me with a deep understanding of the performance of Indian classical Raga. Outside of these particular genres, I enjoy playing English and Celtic folk music. As a teacher I am thorough, patient, creative and open-minded. I have the ability to teach students of all levels, age groups and backgrounds. My strengths as a teacher lie in my versatility in approaching a diverse range of styles, whilst catering to students’ individual interests. Before working for Leeds Violin School, I worked at a music workshop for teenagers with disabilities. This has helped me develop innovative and accommodating approaches when engaging students with special needs, ensuring that all students will be fully catered for.
