Adventures in Pianoland with Robin Spielberg
The Opening Session Thursday, November 21, 2013
Robin Spielberg has been an active artist advocate for AMTA since 2001, serving in the position of "Celebrity Artist Spokesperson." Over the years, she has met with dozens of music therapists in nursing care facilities, community centers, hospitals, universities and performing arts centers to help educate both professional medical personnel and the general public about the benefits of music therapy. Robin will perform a delightful program of enchanting pieces for solo piano from her vast repertoire of popular American melodies and original favorites. Known for her expressive style and tales from the bench, she will treat the conference audience to select excerpts from her brand new memoir, "Naked on the Bench: My Adventures in Pianoland" during this performance. Robin will also be presenting a special "For Students Only" Session entitled: "Musical Intention: Conveying Emotion through Song."
