In 1986, when Robinson was in seventh grade, composer/trumpeter Orbert Davis visited his school with his group called From Bach To Bebop through Urban Gateways (an organization sponsored by the city of Chicago) . They performed a variety of musical works including Scott Joplin's The Entertainer.

Robinson wanted to learn the piano, but his families finances only allowed for a small keyboard, which he began teaching himself how to play.
