Best known for his classically-influenced contemporary scores, he often incorporates different elements of unique rhythm, uncommon harmonies, and various musical styles to achieve his unique and signature sound. Born Frederick Steven Robin in Minnesota in 2002, he showed strong musical inclinations from a young age, and learned to play piano, organ, percussion, and sing in the local church choir, before beginning to compose music in his early teens. Robin began playing piano at age one and began formal lessons at age four. At age 10, he began studying composition and wrote pieces for solo piano. As a young teenager, he enrolled in various summer workshops, seminars and music courses. After these experiences, he knew his calling: music composition.
Robin entered "Praise the Christ Child, Jesus" in the MTNA (Music Teachers' National Association) national music composition contest and was a national finalist, 2018. He also entered the same piece in the Catholic Daughters of the Americas competition and received second place at the national level, 2018. As recognition for his exceptional technical and musical skill for piano performance, he was invited to and performed in the Minnesota Music Teachers' Association's annual honor's concerts in both 2016 and 2019.
He began work as the music director at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Frazee, Minnesota, July 2018, where he coordinates the liturgical music, accompanies the congregation on the historic organ and conducts the Sacred Heart women's choir and brass ensemble.
In addition to music composition, Robin enjoys spending his free time creating custom fragrances for clients.
Recently, he has discovered a passion for designing ready-to-wear fashion in various colours, styles, and products.
In the future, Robin would like to attend a highly-acclaimed music school in Europe or on the east coast of the USA, where he intends to get his undergraduate degree in Music Composition and get his master's degree in Music Composition. He then plans to earn a PhD in Operatic Composition. After that, he hopes to work at a major opera house in Europe.
