Conductor of Bravura Strings
Robyn Watts will join SEMYO this fall as conductor of the new Bravura Strings ensemble. Mrs. Watts has a passion for teaching beginner string students and derives great pleasure from starting out students with a strong solid foundation in technique while encouraging a love of music.
Mrs. Watts has taught private music lessons in Rochester for over 20 years and has recently taught orchestra at John Adams Middle School and Century High School. Robyn earned a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Bethel College as well as a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from Winona State. As a young violinist she grew up under the baton of many great conductors of the Greater Twin Cities Youth Symphonies. In addition to SEMYO, Mrs. Watts plays violin in local ensembles, in her church band and teaches private lessons. In her spare time, she enjoys making cards, running and spending time with her family.
