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 two government schools whilst maintaining a busy home studio.


Over the past few years, Anna has self-published three books of original piano compositions. “Notes on a Neighbourhood” is a collection of early intermediate pieces inspired by observations of daily life around Northcote. “Cats on the Keys” and “Pooches at the Piano” are companion collections of elementary level pieces. Over 40 pieces from her publications are included in the current piano syllabi for St Cecilia Examinations International and ANZCA Music Examinations. 

Further highlights include a commission from Vibrant Music Teaching in Ireland to write two pedagogical pieces with the theme “The Other Pedals” for the Concept Collection series for piano, and “The Scooter’s Waltz” receiving the runner-up award in the 2024 Australasian Piano Pedagogy Conference’s composing competition.

Anna is a Pedagogical Associate Artist with the Australian Music Centre.

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.
