Robin enjoyed meeting his new students and seeing what level they are at. One pupil chose to play Gavotte in E major - J.S.Bach and then Capricho Arabe - Tarrega. Robin was amazed to see that the student was using the exact fingering that Robin had devised over years of studying the piece. After some discussion they discovered that the student had previously had lessons from an old pupil of Robins! It's good to know that they are still using the advice they were given some time ago!
Robin also decided that modern technology could help him demonstrate a poor left hand technique to another student. Robin had his new camera with him so took a short piece of video and played it back to the unsuspecting pupil. It worked, he could see immediately the mistakes he was making. A useful tool which I'm sure Robin will use again.
'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
