James B.

Book Now

I normally use the Standard of Excellence method books for many of my students; however, I am open minded to adjusting to each individual student's musical needs, whether it be Jazz, Classical, or whatever style music the student is focusing on. Other excellent methods are the Ed Sueta Book, Rubank Method, Breeze Easy, Achievement in Excellence, and perhaps the First Division Method Book. For Drummers, I prefer the Haskell Harr Method, or the Buddy Rich Method Book, as well as the Breeze Easy Method. I always play my instrument along with the student so that he/she can hear how the music is supposed to be played in regards to the notes as well as the rhythm! This way, we all have fun learning!

When my son was 11, he decided to take piano lessons. Mr Montavo, asked him why he chose that instrument and proceeded to have a conversation about the importance of practicing and not giving up. He is an amazing pianist and has a good knowledge of how to help kids succeed and grow as a musician. He helps with educating the parents on what kind of keyboard, piano, and music is best for your child

I have been teaching children of all age groups to acquire a solid foundation in violin playing. Whether it be pre-K beginners, or high school students getting ready for college auditions, I will communicate with the students and parents to set a number of goals to achieve.
I also welcome adult students, beginners and amateur enthusiasts alike.

In addition to gaining expertise in the techniques in violin playing, students in my studio will be given opportunities to gain comprehensive music knowledge including theory, sight singing, ear training, and any relevant music history, as the above-mentioned knowledge are indispensable elements in violin playing. Singing and clapping are essential parts of the lesson. When students are equipped with the basics, they can play anything and make the music they want.

About Dongbin

I am a concert soloist, and have given concerts home and abroad. I have previously served as the concertmaster at the Hartt Symphony Orchestra and the Waterbury Chorale. I am also an avid chamber musician with chamber music experience from age of 15 as a member of the Shin Trio. I was appointed as

My son has been taking violin lessons with Dongbin for almost 3 years since he started playing at age 5. Dongbin has been a great teacher, and my son enjoys learning from him. His lessons include not only violin playing, but also clapping rhythms, singing notes, and other exercises that have been effective ways of learning for my son, while keeping him engaged throughout the lesson. Dongbin recognizes my son’s strengths in playing violin, but also identifies the skills and techniques that he should focus on to become a better player and to build a strong foundation as he progresses. He also gives suggestions to help sharpen those skills while practicing at home. We have been very pleased with our experience with Dongbin as our son’s violin teacher.

This is my first time using an online platform. It's also first time having a vocal instructor. I can honestly state that Anna has been a wonderful instructor who is perfect for my 5-year-old daughter. She makes the online experience work and utilizes the technology well. I was concerned about doing online sessions over those at local centers but Anna has given me reasons to stick with the online format. She caters to my daughter's level (which is no experience). She provides the materials one will need to practice so you really just need headphones, mic, a computer (or any device that can open takelessons), and Wi-Fi speed of at least 50 Mbps. She's accessible, responsive, and very positive. I highly recommend her.

While Anna does provide the materials and will even organize it for you, I am doing some research of my own and reading a few books on how to teach young vocalist. Where Anna is indispensable is twofold. First is her voice. For a child between 3-6, listening and singing to a human voice is much superior to instruments. Having someone with a great voice to emulate is even better. Second is that Anna is great with kids. My daughter loves Anna and that's all I could really ask at this stage -- just for her to love singing.

If you are looking for an instructor for your child at the beginning stages, look no further. I am happy with the experience thus far.

"I've been with Karney for a few years now, and I have learned so much from him! I remember thinking about how I would probably never be able to learn to play an instrument, but after working with Karney for only a short time, that changed. Karney is such a nice guy, and a wonderful guitar player! He is able to teach a variety of genres as well. I would highly recommend him as a teacher! :)"

How to Fix Fret Buzz (Guitar Buzzing) Once and For All

You've got the fingerings memorized and the transitions smooth as ever - but then, without fail, that dreaded fret buzz comes out. Extra noises - we're talking humming, buzzing, scratchy amps, and the like - are often the bane of guitar players, and it's something that beginners all the way up to advanced players deal with. There are several factors that contribute to guitar buzzing sounds. Taking good care of your instrument can help, but natural wear and tear may affect the sound quality …
