Bed-Stuy’s oldest piano studio is still creating young maestros after almost a century – Our Time Press

The Patricia F. Robinson Music Studio on Monroe Street – a mainstay in Brooklyn’s music community – celebrates nearly a century of evolving musicians and music leaders with performances by a group of talented students ages 13 and under in the prestigious Carnegie Hall’s Weill Hall, on Saturday, June 8, 2024 at 1:00 PM.

These talented young music artists, all students of the Patricia F. Robinson Music Studio, will demonstrate their musical skills including playing piano with an orchestra, while performing a variety of musical genres during the concert. Ms. Robinson cordially invites the audience to support these young musicians “as they take center stage to embark on an exciting musical journey.”

That journey began in 1930 in Bedford Stuyvesant, when Mrs. Robinson’s late mother opened her music practice. Since then, thousands of students of all ages have played Ms. Robinson’s pianos in her brownstone, “a beacon of musical education and hope,” located at 590 Madison Street in Brooklyn.

The Studio’s programs are aimed at fostering children’s love of music and providing opportunities to explore their talents, according to the school’s press release: “This upcoming performance at Carnegie Hall is a testament to the success of the Studio in achieving its mission of enriching the community and the lives of our youth.”

The event also highlights the Patricia F. Robinson Music Studio’s continued commitment to providing high-quality music education to children in the Bed-Stuy community and beyond. The Studio is also committed to providing enriching cultural experiences that, according to Ms. Robinson, “inspire students to develop their musical skills, stimulate their creativity and cultivate a lifelong love of music and art that will last a lifetime.”
