Robyn Staveley

Robyn is a teacher, lecturer, presenter and researcher. She has been involved in Orff Schulwerk organisations, committees and training for over 30 years. From her many years teaching music to children from pre-school to upper secondary, and then teaching in universities, she became fascinated in cognitive neuroscience and how humans learn, and especially, the implications for teaching. Robyn’s sessions and workshops are designed to lead participants through experiences that embody musical learning, then reflect on the neuroscience that underpins the practice.
