SSG Robin Felt hails from the small, mid-western city of Chamberlain, South Dakota- a town she admits has no stop lights and more cows than people. She is grateful to come from a family of public music educators, with both parents now retired and her brother still active in the field.
Felt received a Bachelor of Music Education degree in both vocal and instrument music and a Bachelor of Arts degree in history from Northern State University in Aberdeen, South Dakota. She went on to pursue her Master of Music in horn performance at the Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music where she graduated in 2009, just a month before joining the Army.
Felt attended Advanced Individual Training (AIT) at The United States Army School of Music in Norfolk, Virginia and began her career in the military at the United States Army Training and Doctrine Command Band at Fort Monroe, Virginia, serving as Horn Section Leader, Load Crew NCOIC, and Human Resources NCO. She returned to The United States Army School of Music where she served as the Army Librarian in 2014 and soon after, was hired for the position of Music Librarian and Licensing NCOIC at The United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own."
Felt lives in Virginia with her husband, Zered Felt, a member of the Army Signal Corps, and their pup, Arlo Guthrie.
