About Robin Carrington

Robin studied classical guitar performance at the University of North Texas and also has a B.A. in Environmental Resource Management from the University of Texas at Austin.  

He has over twenty years of playing experience and more than ten years of experience as a performer (having played at venues including Trees, the Granada Theater and the Nx35 music festival in Denton, TX).  

Robin has been teaching private and group guitar lessons in the DFW area for over seven years.  His educational philosophy revolves around integrating the precision of classical technique with the songs and stylistic elements of more contemporary genres such as rock, blues, and country.  His goal is for every student to build and expand a solid and well-rounded musical framework via the pursuit of the music that they love and desire to play.
