Hello! My name is Rachel Erin Robinson. I’m a fun, patient, and experienced music instructor. I’m passionate about teaching piano, violin, and fiddle lessons to children and adults. Music is my life, and I love teaching and sharing the experience with my students!
I believe that learning music should be fun, and I tailor lessons to meet the individual needs and goals of my students. I encourage and assist my students in finding music that interests them and inspires them to practice and improve. All students are invited to participate in peer performance classes and recitals. I communicate clearly with students and parents, and help students set and achieve their musical goals.
My Musical Education Background
I have 15 years of experience teaching private music lessons, as well as preschool and elementary school classroom music. I studied music at the University of Minnesota and Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle. In addition to being a teacher, I’m also a performing musician, composer, and studio musician. I play regularly in a variety of musical groups, including the Summer Januaries and Golden Tree Story.
Genres and Subjects Taught
I teach piano, violin, and fiddle lessons to children and adults.
Lessons are offered at my studio in San Diego, near La Mesa, CA.
Monthly tuition for studio lessons is:
$120/month - weekly 30 minute lessons
$180/month - weekly 45 minute lessons
$220/month - weekly hour lessons
During the summer months I offer flexible scheduling and payment.
I also travel to my students’ homes for lessons. Depending on your location, a travel fee will apply for in home lessons.
Ages / Skill Levels Taught
I accept students age 5 and up.
My daughter was able to take lessons from Rachel for 4 years. She plays piano beautifully with expression and with her heart. Rachel is so positive and encouraging and nurturing. My daughter has learned so much from her. Both my husband and I are music teachers and are so pleased with our daughter’s piano playing, thanks to Rachel.
Rachel harnessed our daughter’s enthusiasm as a new piano player. Eva looked forward to her lesson each week and sat down to the piano several times each day, because Rachel created a lovely balance between expectations and fun. In addition to launching Eva into music, Rachel ran an organized studio and communicated effectively about lesson times, makeups, and tuition. We only wish she were staying in Washington!
Rachel makes you feel comfortable and encourages you when you play.
She was teaching so well that we got through two whole books and I started the next book in a short time. I liked my teacher because she gave me lots of encouragement, and I felt like I knew what to do
On a scale of 1 to 10, she’s infinity! Rachel is wonderful, creative and has awesome energy! I loved her lessons- they were sooooo fun
