Dongbin S.

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.

I have been a student of Tim’s for a little over a year now. I started playing guitar at age 52 and when I started with Tim I was very close to giving up or settling on just being able to strum a few chords. I have had many hand injuries in the past that have resulted in arthritis and lack of dexterity in my wrists and some of my fingers and I started doubting I would ever be able to progress in my ability to play. From the very first lesson where I told Tim about my hand issues and my frustrations, he told me he was sure we could work around any physical limitations I had, and he was right. Tim has been able to work with me on alternative ways to play the chords I was having trouble with and has shown me that these alternate techniques along with the bit of music theory he sprinkles into lessons can really expand my ability to play.

In the time I have been studying with Tim, I have done more than I thought I ever could. I went from a frustrated beginner guitar player to having enough confidence to play on stage with some of Tim’s other students and I am now looking forward to what I will be able to do on the guitar instead of being frustrated with what I can’t do.

Tim is a talented and passionate musician as well as a knowledgeable and very relatable instructor which is a rare combination and he's also a really great guy and any student of any age or ability will benefit from studying with him.
Sam
Tim is an excellent guitar teacher and an overall great guy. He provided me with structure and support, enabling me to make the most out of my practice and ultimately progress as a player. His warm personality and contagious enthusiasm for music kept me looking forward to our time together each week. He was also very flexible when it came to scheduling to accommodate for my dynamic schedule.

Tim is an excellent teacher, providing excellent advice, practice techniques, and insights. He makes learning and improving easy and enjoyable.

I have been playing guitar for 12 or so years, with an emphasis on playing rock, metal, and progressive styles of music. Within lessons I like to tailor the curriculum to the student based on their past experience and ultimate goals. This can be anything from theory, to learning solos and licks, to learning full songs. I want students to have fun learning guitar, and I want to help find what that means to you.

Kinisha
My daughter Kimona is 13 years old and before being introduced to the piano by Martina has never truly found something to be passionate about. I have seen my amazing young daughter flourish through notes of music and express her creativity through learning to play the piano. Initially as a mom I did not think at this age that my daughter would grasp the concepts and enjoy learning music however, through working with Martina weekly Kimona has flourished. I thank you Martina for opening our eyes that we all have the ability to learn and enjoy such a beautiful art.
Jasmine
My daughter and I have both experienced so much growth while beginning Piano lessons with Martina. My daughter is 5 and she leaves class with a song in mind. While driving in the car she is using her fingers and identifying keys as if she is on the piano. I can’t thank you enough Martina for this wonderful learning journey. Your patience and willingness to go above and beyond for both of us has been astounding. I have to say we both look forward to the challenges and fun you have ahead for us weekly.

My daughter has done very well, she has learned so much in just 2 lessons. Martina you're an awesome instructor. Thank you

I firmly believe that everyone can learn to play an instrument, no matter the age! After studying piano for almost 10 years I decided to learn a new instrument and began taking violin lessons when I was 16 years old. In spite of being told that I was “too old” to learn to play the violin, I con

Isaac
We literally knew nothing about playing the violin. My son (11yrs old) got one for Christmas and we couldn't even figure out how to get a sound out of it. Hannah was very helpful and simply started from the beginning. She showed him how to prepare the bow and tune the instrument and by the end of the first lesson my son was playing beautifully sounding notes. He is very happy with his teacher and looks forward to the next lesson.
