About Me

"What separates the piano from other instruments?" "How does one control the sound of a piano?"
"How do great composers for piano proceed so that their work are able to touch us so deep?"
Those are some of the questions I ask myself regularly, for the possibilities that offer this beautiful instrument fascinate me, and my passion for it grows more day by day.

Au top!
Robinson has been working with my 13 yr old daughter since the summer and I cannot recommend him enough. He is an amazing pianist, and so patient and kind and super professional. We are so grateful to have met him. Just a few weeks ago we needed a recording and at the last minute we informed Robinson and he made the time to fit my daughter in, and we just received the news today that she got first prize in America without Robinson this would not have been possible. Don’t hesitate to contact him you will not regret it. Fantastic Musician. Linda

Louana
Private lessons of Piano and Solfeggio for Beginners / Intermediates
Hello, My name is Louana, I am 28 years old and am currently a piano teacher for students ranging from 4 to 65 years old. Indeed, I started very young music with first 2 years of rhythm then 5 years of Solfege Jacques-Dalcroze and finally 12 years of piano including 10 at the Conservatory of Music in Geneva. (each year of study being validated by exams & diplomas) Today I continue to play for fun and give some of my time to teach a few students once a week. Class sessions are generally 45 minutes to 1 hour as proposed by the Conservatory. I teach with my old scores which allows a gradual evolution step by step. Obviously, I remain attentive to everyone's wishes, but I particularly teach classical music because in my opinion, these are the best bases allowing you to play what you want. I am obviously at your disposal for any further information or to arrange an interview at your convenience. Best regards, Louana
