Musical Background

Anna Robinson started learning the piano at age 6 and flute at age 12. After graduating in Mathematics from University College London, she worked in administrative roles in classical music in London for several years before moving to Melbourne, where she became an artist manager and later associate director at Jenifer Eddy Artists’ Management, a leading agency for Australian and international opera singers and opera conductors.

Piano Teaching

After gaining performing and teaching diplomas in piano whilst working full-time as an artist manager, Anna left the opera world to focus on teaching. Her student roster quickly grew, and she currently teaches at three government schools whilst maintaining a busy home studio.

Composition

Over 20 years teaching, Anna has frequently written arrangements and adapted students’ favourite songs for their individual skill level. It was a natural development to compose original educational works, which focus on combining enjoyable and engaging repertoire with technical and interpretative skill acquisition. This led to the creation and publication of her first two collections of educational piano works, Notes on a Neighbourhood and Cats on the Keys. 

Piano Accompaniment

An experienced accompanist, Anna enjoys collaborating with fellow musicians of all ages and welcomes further opportunities to perform in this special supportive role. She regularly accompanies AMEB and VCE exam candidates; at eisteddfods and auditions; for choirs, musicals, school ensembles and instrumental teachers’ studio concerts.
