For the last two years, Robin Wilson has been based in Dublin as a member of RTE National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland (2nd Violin). Now living in SE London, he is currently on trial with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (2nds), RTE Concert Orchestra (Princ No. 3) and the Welsh National Opera (1st Violin).

Alongside his orchestral career, Robin is also in demand as a soloist and chamber musician. Recent highlights include performances of both the Brahms and Bruch Concerti in the UK, and a recital with the Ficino Trio at Royal Irish Academy of Music in EIRE.

Robin studied at the Birmingham Conservatoire under Philippe Graffin, graduating in 2003 with honours. During his course, he spent a year studying in the USA at the Crane School of Music in New York, under the great Romanian violinist Ioan Harea. It was during this time that Robin was heavily influenced by the worlds of folk music and jazz, and upon returning to the UK these skills were put to use during his time as fiddle player for Canterbury based folk/rock band, Waterhorse. A passion for traditional music remains with him today.

Robin continued his post-graduate studies at the Royal Academy of Music in 2007-2009, with Mateja Marinkovic. After this he joined the Southbank Sinfonia, which gave him the opportunity to perform as both an orchestral and chamber musician at some of the country's most prestigious concert venues including the Royal Opera House, Wigmore Hall and the Queen Elizabeth Hall.

Robin also has a passion for teaching, and has over ten years experience teaching violin at all levels. Previous teaching positions include Dublin School of Music, King's School Rochester and Canterbury Christ Church University.
