Robyn began playing violin at age 6, and has been teaching private lessons since 2012. When she is not playing classical violin, she also performs around Indianapolis with a few traditional Irish bands, including the award-winning Indianapolis Ceili Band. In addition to live performances, Robyn can be heard on the Indianapolis Ceili Band’s latest CD, Emotional Velocity.
Robyn has a bachelor’s degree in education from Butler University, and taught 7th grade science for a few years in addition to violin. Her teaching style focuses on emphasizing her students’ existing strengths and building their confidence, and she believes that everyone, regardless of age or experience, can have fun making music.
Robyn lives with two turtles, named Lemon and Avocado, a bearded dragon named Archimedes, and an absurd number of houseplants. She enjoys traveling with and without her instruments, and trying new or interesting foods.
