Play Piano Now
Robin Thomson has been a musician since he first picked up a nylon string guitar at the age of fifteen so as he could learn to play Led Zeppelin riffs.
In 1977, at the age of 24, Robin decided he really need to get a bit serious about his music and that he needed to learn to read the dots. Although, not his original intention, he ended up studying the classical guitar to achieve this end. In 1980, Robin successfully auditioned to study at the Conservatorium of Music within the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts culminating in a Diploma of Music Teaching in 1985. Following his graduation, Robin commenced a private teaching practice and for the next 10 years performed both as a soloist and in a variety of ensemble combinations including bands in tandem with his teaching.
In 2009, after 40 years of playing the guitar, Robin cut off his carefully manicured right hand fingernails eschewing the guitar in favour of mastering a new instrument, the piano. The piano has provided Robin with a wonderful tool to broaden his musical horizons and elevate his compositional activities.
