Dave Young and Robin Pease came to my class and taught my classmates and me about the fundamentals about writing music and composing music.

Robin is celebrated in the community for her teaching, her direction, her performances, her entrepreneurial skills, and her overall expertise. I highly recommend her.
Ray Gargano, Victoria Theatre
Thanks! We need more PD like this in order to motivate our students to actively participate and learn concepts in various ways. Bring Robin back!
Renaissance Theater, Professional Development Participant
The kids watching and participating in her performance didn’t need to be told twice to listen; they
were riveted by Pease’s performance.
Kara Friend, Charleston, WVA
I especially enjoyed how the whole class got to create!
Matt, a student
The performance was superb! The children were engrossed from start to finish and wanted more.

When I had to go up and say my part, I thought I would be nervous. When I get nervous, my voice gets deep and it didn’t get deep. I wasn’t nervous and I was surprised they didn’t make me nervous. I was comfortable. They probably made me conquer my fear on getting nervous in front of people.
Jordan, a student
You all did an amazing job this summer. The performance showed real and substantive accomplishment by the children – a testament to your team’s work. Congratulations and THANK YOU!

THE LAST FUGITIVE SLAVE performance showed the emotional distress and physical consequences of the slavery institution; Robin incorporated students into her performance, directly having them see the importance of the teaching of history and culture by means of the theatrical arts.
Robin is a unique and creative artist whose leadership has helped countless students and teachers. Her experience has been invaluable and her high expectations have helped our staff in attaining not only our artistic goals but also our academic goals.
Andrew Koonce, Principal Cleveland School of the Arts
I loved how you were interactive with everyone.
Shaylin, a student
In addition to teaching in the schools, she is one of our best presenters of teacher professional development and is called upon regularly by other arts organizations for professional development.
