About Dale
Dale R. B. is a certified teacher, musician, conductor, clinician, and composer from Stratford, Connecticut. He is currently accepting new students and teaching private lessons in piano, guitar, percussion, and composition for students of all ages in both Hartford and New Haven counties.

Dale received his Master of Science in Music Education degree from the University of Bridgeport in May of 2017 and his Bachelor of Arts in Percussion degree from the University of Connecticut in May of 2012. In his studies, he has taken advanced courses in music pedagogy, composition, orchestration, conduc
ting, educational psychology, and methods in wind, brass, and percussion. He has 15 years experience in percussion, 17 years experience in guitar, and 24 years experience in piano. Dale's teachers include Grammy award-winning percussionist Haruka Fujii (Silk Road Ensemble), American Symphony Orchestra percussionist Javier Diaz, and twice Grammy-nominated orchestral composer Kenneth Fuchs.

Dale once held a freelance instrumental composer for Ear Goo Inc. in New York City, Here Dale wrote multi-genre works for film, television, promotional trailers, and advertisements. His vast clientele included household names such as Universal Studios, Paramount Pictures, MTV, VH1, Nickelodeon, Sony, Revlon, and Coca-Cola. Dale is currently represented by Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI), a world-renowned performing rights organization that also represents artists such as Eminem, Shakira, and Maroon 5. His original music for marching band was performed on a weekly basis during the 2012 competitive season in USSBA Class III competitions around Connecticut by the Trojan Marching Band at Lyman Hall High School, where he once held a position as their percussion instructor.

As a clinician, Dale has been asked on an annual basis to judge timpani, mallet percussion, and snare drum at several Regional and All-State Music Festivals around the state since 2009. He has also given presentations on the importance of installing/maintaining a music and arts curriculum in the Connecticut public school system as well as the history and proper care of mallet percussion instruments.

As a performing musician, Dale has appeared in several venues across the state, most recently at the storied Shubert Theater in New Haven, which hosted the world premiere of Dale's "Les Reves de Jeunesse Oubliée," an original piano solo that was well-received. He hosted his first Composition Recital on April 3, 2012 at the Von Der Mehden Recital Hall, where Dale showcased six live, original works, including a piano solo, a euphonium solo, a woodwind sextet, and a percussion quartet. Dale has played in live productions and musicals with both the Connecticut Repertory Theater and the Church of the Resurrection Youth Group, while winning numerous awards for his musicianship, including Lyman Hall’s “Outstanding Musician Award” for three consecutive years. Among numerous charitable events he has partaken in, Dale performed selected works by marimbist Daniel Berg on the piano as part of the Hamden Academy’s annual canned food drive, where together they raised over 500 cans of food for those without homes. Outside of music, Dale’s interests include baseball, video games, creative writing, jogging, and the ocean.

As a private teacher, Dale strives to ignite a passion for classical and instrumental music regardless of the instrument, and firmly believes that the art of making music is both satisfying and rewarding for both the short and the long-term. Because there are so many different types and genres out there, he knows that music is something every person can enjoy regardless of their differences, and so his ultimate goal for each and every pupil is to inspire and cultivate a newfound appreciation for the musical world.

For the price, you or your child will receive a top-ranking, master music teacher who has dedicated his entire professional life to studying his craft.

Dale has been very patient with our son. He went from not being able to play at all to playing full rhythms. Jack has learned a lot from Dale and really enjoys working with him.

About William
Hello everyone. I have a bachelor's degree in Vocal Performance from Valley Forge Christian College and I have been performing since I was three years old. I play several instruments and have learned the key skills needed to be a successful musician in any genre. With five years teaching experience and a willingness to learn, I have discovered new ways to help my students become better musicians. I can show you the ways to hone your skills through different drills and practice strategies. Also, I can teach you ways to keep your instrument working at top shape by keeping your physical health in
good condition. I want to teach you what you want to know with a little push to expand your abilities. I can also give you great tips ln running, and help you with your biblical studies. I hope to hear from you soon.

I had the opportunity to work with Douglas a number of times during my tenure as a part-time instructor at SCORE Educational Center. What I noticed about him was that he related very well to the children he worked with - he was a very enthusiastic tutor of English and math! He was most generous with the "high fives" and praise, and he also knew how to get students back on track if their focus strayed. Also, I saw him work very well with the parents; he always took the time to patiently explain lesson plans and students' progress between sessions. I have known Douglas personally for many years. He was the one who encouraged me to work at SCORE Educational Center given my background in Education - I thank him for that because I enjoyed my time there very much while I was able to stay (unfortunately, I had to leave that position for a full-time job elsewhere). SCORE Educational Center is no longer in existence. Douglas currently works as an independent tutor, and given how long I've seen clients stick with him, I have no doubt that they are enjoying the same level of attention and enthusiasm he provided at SCORE. When he speaks about the progress of independent clients and how they respond to him, it is with enthusiasm and a glowing smile. If you are looking for a tutor that is intelligent, dedicated, enthusiastic, and simply great with kids and parents, then Douglas is your man.

About Tamari
Hi, there! My name is Tamar; I'm called Tamari, informally, and Tamara for the stage, and I can't wait to meet you!

I've been teaching private lessons for many, many years and have loved helping my students acquire new skills, master new pieces, and prepare for concerts and performances. Over the years, my younger students have earned Blue and Gold ratings at the Young Musicians' Festival in Fairfield U., some of them earning gold cups: This is a statewide event to encourage long-term commitment to the art, discipline and joy of music making.
I went to Indiana University's Jacob School
of Music and earned a Masters in Piano Performance, and Composition in the '90's. I sang all types of vocal music as well as prepared singers with vocal coaching and voice development techniques 20+ years.
I'm fun loving, patient, and optimistic-- these traits carry through in my teaching style,
One Size does NOT fit all--I approach the lesson plans for each student tailored to your learning style.
Over the past 23 years, my life experiences have encompassed other disciplines and compelled me to learn and acquire many other skills: my liberal arts as well as fine arts education lent itself to helping me work administrative jobs and even expanded into sales and public speaking. I have coached after school and SAT preparation to High School and College age students, helped with the preparation of legal and analytical documents, creative writing and editing assignments; and even tutored computer, social media and Microsoft Office & iWork Suite of applications to older adults.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals
