Meet Your Coach
Simply Music Teacher since 2003
I'm Robin and I've been teaching Simply Music to children, teens, and adults since 2003. The Simply Music (Music and Creativity) program opens musical doors for students who have always dreamed of playing.
I've operated a successful private practice, my own full-scale performing arts center, and I've trained hundreds of Simply Music Teachers around the world. I have a deep and thorough understanding of both the method and the psychology of what it takes to make music a lifelong companion.
Infused with joy and absolute delight, Simply Music brings your innate musicality into the spotlight. You really do deserve to experience playing this way.
I'm looking forward to helping you reach your goals in an atmosphere of positivity, encouragement, and accountability (the 'feel good' kind).
Frequently Asked Questions
How is a Piano Pod different than a piano lesson?
Typically in a piano lesson, you're expected to demonstrate your progress to your teacher and then receive instruction & your next assignment. In your Simply Music Piano Pod, we acknowledge your commitment to learning independently and will not require you to demonstrate or perform. Your coach will celebrate your progress, encourage your momentum, and support your commitment to playing the piano.
What will I be learning in my Piano Pod?
We'll initially be working through the Foundation Program of Music and Creativity. Each week we'll quickly review the relevant content, I'll answer your questions and suggest next steps for the week ahead. As you progress, you'll have the option of continuing through the program (Foundation Enhancement and beyond).
What's the benefit of being in a Piano Pod?
Self-study is a wonderful option but studies have shown that most people (97%!) who enroll in a course never complete it. The Piano Pod gives you a community of piano players who will encourage you to achieve your goals. Being in this accountable environment increases your chances of achieving your goal by 95%!
Who else will be in my Piano Pod?
Anyone learning to play with the Music & Creativity Program is welcome to join a Piano Pod. We have brand new players learning alongside experienced players who are returning to the piano. Because these Piano Pods are designed to support your self-study, it is not necessary to group students by skill level.
I need time to practice but how will a Practice Pod help me?
Our Practice Pods give you an opportunity to practice with accountability. Jump into any or all Practice Pod sessions on Zoom. We'll say hello and then you'll mute yourself and get to work. 27 minutes of practice done, just like that! All methods & instruments are welcome!
What if I want an occasional private lesson?
If you find yourself needing some special attention, we can do that. You always have the option of scheduling a private lesson with me using my link, here.
What does this cost?
Simply Music Piano Pods are just $47 per month - less than the cost of ONE private lesson! The Simply Music Practice Pod is $37 month and gives you 36 possible times to practice each month! Combine them both for just $67 per month.
