Robert Walsh is an award-winning singer-songwriter, producer, guitarist, musical director, composer/arranger, author and educator. He has released five albums as a solo artist, three as part of a group (including Allez Ouest), and co-written four musicals, the latest of which, “Rubaboo” (with Andrea Menard), will be performed in London ON and Vancouver in 2023. He has also written two books, and taught Songwriting and other subjects in the music department at MacEwan University for thirteen years. He also pioneered an after-school music program in Alberta's Francophobe schools. Robert grew up in Montréal, where he got his BMUS from McGill, put ten years into Toronto, and settled in Edmonton in 1996. He performs regularly in English and French.
I am interested in working in Yukon schools as a result of previous positive experiences teaching as the Yukon Summer Music Camp, and as a result of discussions with the Director of French school CSSC Mercier to teach his students. I also really love the Yukon!
