'As always, it was sheer pleasure to observe Robin Hill's remarkable fluent technique: everything looks easy when he plays it.' Colin Cooper- Classical Guitar Magazine ----- 'Wonderful for their (Hill & Wiltschinsky) precision, touch and clarity of sound... refined virtuosity, the achievement of a long interpretive process.' Il Giornale D'Italia (Rome) ----- 'I loved your CD and thought your technique and performance were fabulous...' Rick Wakeman

Monday, must be Leeds

Today Robin has been over in Leeds at the university. He sees each student individually, and they are impressed that each time he goes he alternates the side of the room that he sits on, in order to view them from a different angle. When playing the guitar it's all about economy of movement and by changing position he feels he can focus on different areas.
Whilst trying to explain this to one of his students he said, 'It's minimum effort, for maximum effect, you're a student so that should be easy enough!'
They were very amused, and got the point.
