Robin's story



Robin Thornton began teaching in 1993 in Banchory (Scotland). He went on to own a

three floor Teaching Studio with Shop and Staff helping with Teaching duties. 

He now Teaches from home, to be closer to his family. Lessons - in Singing, Guitar, 

Bass, Piano, Drums, Theory and Composition - are available at Robin’s home (in 

Banchory), or online. 


Lessons are available online. The catchment area where Robin works as a tutor, covers 

Banchory, Aboyne, Aberdeen and Stonehaven. With advancements in technology, Robin is 

now a teacher in Saudi Arabia, Russia, France, Australia, England and a variety of 

lessons throughout Scotland. Online lessons are taught person-to-person, in real time.






Online Lessons work via video call. At your lesson time, simply sit at your computer

with your instrument. Robin will video call you and you will be empowered through music 

in the comfort of your own home. Due to international time lines, lessons may be

scheduled at a time which suits you best.
