Named to the prestigious Steinway Artist Roster, Robin Spielberg is one of America’s most popular contemporary pianists/composers, with millions of listeners worldwide. With an impressive tour schedule and hundreds of thousands of recordings sold, this Steinway Artist has been winning the hearts of listeners around the world with her compelling melodies and sensitive piano technique since debuting her first recording of original solos for piano, Heal of the Hand.

A prolific composer, Spielberg has sixteen recordings to her credit and appears on over 40 compilations around the world. Her discography includes albums of original piano solos, arrangements of American standards, original pieces for piano/ensemble, recordings for the holidays, a CD of Americana melodies, and a CD of lullabies.

Her playMountain Music debut, Dreaming of Summer, earned a “Finalist Award” from New Age Voice Magazine in June 2001 in the ‘Best Acoustic Instrumental’ category and was released later in the year in Thailand, China, Hong-Kong, Korea and Malaysia, with one of the tracks also gaining popularity with audiences from its use as a soundtrack in the Korean award-winning television drama Winter Love Song.

Spielberg began her concert career in 1996. She made her Carnegie Hall debut in a sold-out performance at the Weill Recital Hall in 1997 and has performed there twice since. Other memorable performances include a guest spot on the PBS television special, The Soul of Christmas: A Celtic Music Celebration with Thomas Moore; live performances on CBS Saturday Morning, Good Morning Arizona, Life Time Live, CBS New Orleans, a private concert for the factory workers at the Steinway & Sons historic piano factory in New York, and a month-long concert tour through rural Montana with Steinway in tow.

Popular with Asian audiences, Speilberg has released two CDs in Korea and is on several compilations on Asian labels. She has toured in South Korea making concert appearances at the renowned Seoul Arts Center , LG Arts Center and KBS Hall. She recorded a special concert for Airiang TV which aired throughout Asia.

In the field of dance, The West Florida Youth Ballet choreographed a program of dance works based on her music, ballroom waltzes were choreographed to her pieces, Walk with Me and A Song for Jennie on both PBS’ Great American Ballroom Challenge and BYU Ballroom Dance Team presentations.

Spielberg is a Celebrity Spokesperson for the American Music Therapy Association. Robin Spielberg’s interest in music and healing grew when she witnessed first-hand, the positive effect music had on her own baby daughter (born prematurely) during her four-month stay in the neo-natal intensive care unit. A CD entitled Beautiful Dreamer was the musical result of this experience, a recording of lullabies and songs for the parent & child on solo piano. Spielberg’s work with music and wellness has been documented in The New York Times and in segments on LifeTime Live and ABC News. Beautiful Dreamer was hailed by Child Magazine as one of “The Best of 2000”, and also earned accolades in Parenting and The Washington Post. Speilberg donates $1 from the sale of each Beautiful Dreamer CD to music therapy research. As spokesperson, she conducts workshops and seminars on the topic of music and healing throughout the U.S. in hospitals, schools, community centers, nursing care facilities and performing arts centers. Spielberg was the featured performer at two of AMTA’s national conferences performing for over 1300 music therapists from around the world. She has conducted workshops and seminars for AMTA throughout the US. She served as panelist on “The Transformative Power of Music” during the Pennsylvania Presenters Conference and at the American Music Therapy national conference.

Spielberg graduated with high honors and a BFA from New York University. She is a founding member of the Tony-award winning Atlantic Theater Company. She currently resides in rural Pennsylvania with her husband/business partner, their thirteen year old daughter and four cats.
