James W. Robinson Secondary School is one of three secondary schools (grade 7-12) in Fairfax County and part of a school system serving 165,000 students in 180 schools. With a student population of 4000, over 1200 Robinson students are enrolled in one or more music classes. Instrumental music instruction begins in the fourth grade for strings and the fifth grade for band at the six feeder elementary schools in the Robinson pyramid. The Robinson Secondary School music department has been designated a Blue Ribbon School five times by the Virginia Music Educators Association.

The music curriculum at Robinson includes twelve concert bands, four jazz bands, marching band, six orchestras, six choirs, music theory and IB music classes, eight guitar classes, and numerous small ensembles. Nine faculty members instruct these classes and performing organizations in Robinson's Lunsford Hall.

A "Sudler Silver Cup" band, the highest honor bestowed on middle school bands, the Robinson Middle School Symphonic Band consistently receives superior ratings at district festivals. The group has appeared at the Virginia Music Educators Association Conference three times and has the distinction of performing twice at the Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic in Chicago, Illinois.

As one of the only bands in the United States to hold two Sudler Flags of Honor, the Robinson High School Symphonic Band consistently receives superior ratings in grade VI literature at district festivals and is a twenty year recipient of the Virginia Honor Band award.  Robinson is one of four bands in the VBODA “Hall of Fame” for this accomplishment.  In the last ten years, they have hosted or appeared with the University of Tennessee Wind Ensemble, the University of Illinois Trombone Choir, the Tennessee Tech Tuba Ensemble, faculty brass quintets from the University of Kansas and Illinois, the United States Marine Corps Chamber Ensemble, “Boston Brass”, musical humorist, Peter Schickele, and National Symphony Orchestra Maestro Leonard Slatkin. They have performed at the Virginia Music Educators Association (VMEA) Conference four times as well as at the ASBDA convention and the Midwest International Band and Orchestra Clinic. The symphonic band is a part of the 180 member "Marching Rams" which performs and competes successfully during the fall season.
