Dr. Robison currently maintains his own teaching abilities by working with preschool children at the Early Care and Education Center (ECEC) at UW twice weekly.  He is a frequent collaborator with community stakeholders to continually expand musical and educational opportunities for children and families in Wyoming.  Informally, Tiger maintains his own musicianship by playing double seconds steel pans and he enjoys playing with the UW Pan Band each semester.
