Taylor began playing guitar at age 10 with help from a family barber. By age 16 he was premiering in local Dallas garage bands. Throughout high school, he continued to hone his skills as a singer, songwriter, and guitar player by forming and touring with the rock band, “Fallen From the Nest”. It was then that Taylor began developing his craft as an engineer and producer by apprenticing under the renowned Hollywood producer Harvey Guerst (Bob Dylan, The Byrds, The Doors, Kenny Rogers, Peter, Paul, and Mary, Frank Zappa, Jimi Hendrix, The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin).
Through his college years at North Texas University, he worked an engineer at Indian Trails Recording Studio in Denton, TX and Steven Arnold Studios in Allen, TX. It was during this time that he began to tour internationally with the rock band “Fallen From the Nest” (Sony) where he co-wrote and released 3 albums. In 2003, between tours, Taylor began giving lessons with the hands on, working knowledge, approach he had acquired from his time on the road. His students appreciated this “From the Heart” teaching perspective and, as his student base grew, Taylor began to take on other pro musician instructors.
Today, the Taylor Robinson Music Company employs over 3,000 contract instructors and has served over 70,000 lessons in all 52 states. In August 2012, Taylor will graduate from Texas A&M Commerce with an Masters in Business Administration. In the mean time, Taylor Robinson Music continues to be a leader in it's industry by offering quality, unique, and diverse music instruction guided by a true concern for every student.
