Performances for Children and Families

"Music for the Young At Heart"

Playing guitar and banjo, Robin's soothing voice, engaging personality and playful spirit create a get-involved show for her young audiences. Drawing from traditional folk and pop music, classic children's material and her own songs, her show is a rousing, funny, crowd-pleasing experience which features improvised lyrics, and lots of participation including sharing rhythm instruments. Robin has had experience working with all kinds of young audiences; from libraries to minority schools to physically and emotionally handicapped groups. What enables her to relate to these diverse groups is her ability to find common themes and music that all people respond to. She has been especially effective with very young children. Robin toured many public schools and libraries as half of Children's duo Guitar People performing an Americana-theme show. Robin spent 3 months of 1991 performing at a theme park in Japan for family audiences. She has released a tape of music for children, "Art Is A Language." Robin holds a B.A. in Music from SUNY-Stony Brook. You can hear sound clips here.
