Skills and technique for voice and piano are the important foundation, but all students are taught to entertain in addition as part of the lessons. We work on staging and presentation. Getting in front of an audience and feeling comfortable on stage are an integral part of learning to sing or play. We work to build confidence as we practice how to introduce ourselves, talk about our music to an audience, move on stage and more.

I love Roberta. She is so knowledgeable, professional and friendly...a wonderful combination to have in a teacher. She is patient and thorough. I would highly recommend her.
Beverly
Roberta is everything you would want in a teacher. She is exceptionally talented herself and knows how to share her knowledge with others. She is especially very kind and nurturing in an environment which could be quite intimidating for a beginner like me. You can tell she truly enjoys teaching and gets excited to see her pupil learn. I have learned so much in a short time.

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.

The piano is the ultimate first instrument for those who want to learn how to make and understand music! It provides a satisfying goal on its own, while also providing you with knowledge you can transfer to any other musical instrument. As a professional musician with a bachelors degree in music education, and a masters and doctorate in performance, I have the educational background and performance chops to make learning a new instrument both fun and engaging. With over a decade of experience teaching elementary, middle, and high school students, as well as college and adult students; for every lesson you will walk away with clear and achievable goals and the know-how needed to practice these skills for your own musical development.

Dan is a wonderful teacher for my kid. My son is now very into music after studying with him. Each lesson he would learn so much and he always look forward to the next one. We are very lucky to have to teacher like him.

Dan is a great musician, who helped me grasp all of the musical concepts I struggled with. He is an encouraging teacher who sets realistic expectations and wants to see you succeed. I had taken piano lessons with other teachers who didn't seem to enjoy teaching, but that is not the case with Dan! Our lessons are so much fun and I learn so much every time!

I teach students of all levels. Whatever experience you have, we will work with. I believe that it is important to learn how to play by ear as well as read written music. Understanding both approaches, you will be able to play almost any kind of music in a solo as well as a group setting. Depending on your experience, I can find suitable projects that will help you to develop your skills.

"Angela helped me to expand my range, and also taught me "how to breathe," which helped me get the support I needed to make clear sounding notes. I sang alto in chorus for years and she taught me how to successfully hit high notes and have them sound good too. She also worked with me at the tail-end of High School, when my anxiety ran rampant. But somehow she managed to make me a more confident singer and person overall. Thank you Angela! :)"

"I took cello lessons from Mr. Anderson for eight years, and he was an absolutely fantastic instructor. I began playing cello because I watched him teach my brother and thought as a ten-year-old that it would be fun to take lessons with Mr. Anderson. He is a great communicator, super personable, provides suggestions and critique in a constructive manner, and is encouraging and supportive. He taught me all of the basics of cello playing and beyond, helping me work through all sorts of pieces, including etudes, solo pieces, all-region and all-state audition material, youth orchestra material (e.g., GDYO), etc. (and helped me succeed in all of these aspects). Would highly recommend taking lessons with Mr. Anderson—he is an absolute pleasure to learn from!"

How Do You Sing with Vibrato? Tips for Beginners

How do you sing with vibrato? Find out how to develop your technique in this guest post by Hayward, CA teacher Molly R...   One of the main things beginning singers tend to worry about is lack of vibrato. “How do I make it happen?” they ask... sometimes at the first lesson. I usually make it very clear right away that you cannot force vibrato! If you do, you can easily damage your voice or create a very ugly “wobble." Vibrato is something you have to LET happen.
