Dr Robin Wilson most recently held the position of Resident Faculty of Violin at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) in Melbourne, and will take on his new role at the Academy alongside a position as professor of violin at the prestigious Yehudi Menuhin School in Surrey.
Previously, Robin held appointments as Lecturer in Violin and Pedagogy at the University of Sydney and the Australian Institute of Music, and String Pedagogy Fellow at the University of Queensland. His students are regular prizewinners of all of the major national competitions and many international competitions, including first prize in the 2018 Yehudi Menuhin International Violin Competition.
As a performer, Robin regularly tours nationally and internationally, performing at major venues and festivals throughout Australia, the USA and the UK with the acclaimed historical performance ensemble Ironwood. His solo discography includes two discs of violin encores released by Universal Music on Decca and the complete Schubert Sonatas for violin and piano with pianist Kemp English.
The Academy’s Head of Strings, Graham Mitchell, said:
‘We’re delighted that Robin has chosen the Academy as the next step in his illustrious pedagogical career. He is hugely respected as a collaborative teacher and mentor, and I am excited that he will be sharing his considerable expertise with our students.’
