My voice as The Reductionist emerged from certain sonic interested which influence my current work.

Listening to the indicator in the car, waiting to drive home from Primary School. I became curious about emphasis.

Measuring Success

Lessons teach two things 1) The Subject itself 2) How to learn. There are philosophies which my Students know. I share some of these as Posts.

Measurement is the distance between two points. All to often, Students believe that the only measurement of success is being "Perfe...

I am an adult guitar beginner and have been working with Robin since September 2019. I have found Robin to be very patient and a great teacher of not just how to play the guitar but he has introduced me to the fascinating wider world of music. Robin answers my endless questions and always makes my lesson time with him very interesting. I always feel that Robin strikes the right balance between the lesson time being constructive/challenging/supportive/positive experience and fun. Thanks to Robin I will now have a lifelong interest in classical guitar.

My 6 year old has been going to Robin for drumming lessons for some time now and it has been great seeing him develop his eagerness to bang on drums into learning beats. He has come on so well under Robin’s tuition! Now that he is learning rhythms, Robin sets the level just high enough to make him work but not so hard that he gets bored and loses interest. Highly recommended! 5 Stars!

Singing|Piano|Guitar|Drumming Lessons

My name is Robin Thornton. I am a Music Teacher in Banchory serving 65 Students and an International cohort of Students via Online Tuition. I have been teaching Singing, Piano, Guitar, Bass, Drums and Composition - Theory and Musicology since 1993.

I teach Classically, although not necessarily Classical. If you would like to learn "Classical Music" that's not a problem: I hold a Masters Degree and Teaching Diploma, so have a solid Classical background, but also spent the early part of my career playing in Bands ranging from Rock, Pop and Jazz, through to Ceilidh. I performed in 144 Concerts in 2007. Whatever style of music you like, I will teach you to understand it and apply your learning to different styles. This is what I mean by, "Classically although not necessarily Classical".

At the beginning of my Teaching Career, I opened my first Studio and established a Student cohort of 65, with 32 on the waiting list. In order to cope with the increasing business, I employed a staff, to help with Teaching and running a small shop. I handled all aspects of Teacher Training and still enjoy developing Teachers, to this day.
As my family grew, I decided to reduce my Teaching to a Private Practice. I now Teach from my home Studio in Banchory and Online. The Online lessons are very rewarding as they feel like traditional lessons, however include many Music Technology aspects, which Students find fun. I teach music Production and Composition, as well as the instruments, which are always popular.

Since my Masters, I have spent time researching the Student/Teacher Rapport.  I provide bespoke lessons; working with the Student's learning preferences and interests.
