Our Story

Brett Deubner

As one of the most celebrated

viola soloists of his generation

with over 50 concertos written

for him, Brett has performed with

over 90 symphony orchestras on

5 continents and has more than

23 recording albums to his credit including a Latin-Grammy nomination.

In 2017 Brett received a U.S. Congressional Letter of Recognition for his commitment to Education in the Arts.

As an orchestral performer for over 30 years in such world acclaimed orchestras as the London Symphony, New Jersey Symphony and the Rochester Philharmonic, Brett brings unparalleled knowledge of orchestra auditions, preparation for Regionals and All-State and Youth Orchestras.

As an educator and master class clinician, Brett has served on the faculties of music schools at major American Universities, is a regular guest artist at international music festivals worldwide, and is highly sought after as one of this generation's most successful motivational  lecturers in  Arts Advocacy and Career Growth.


As a private teacher of viola and violin, his students have achieved top seats in  NJ All-State and Regionals as well as won seats in the New Jersey Youth Symphony, New York Youth Symphony, the Tanglewood Festival to name a few.  Brett's private students have gone on to attend leading music conservatories in the U.S and Europe as well as become major orchestra players and successful music educators in our public schools.

Danielle Deubner

Danielle is a native of São Paulo

and earned her degree in Music Education from the 

Carlos Gomes Music School at the University of Brazil

and was a violin section leader of the

Carlos Gomes Chamber Orchestra and the

Orquesta Filharmonica Adnipo before moving

to the United States.


Danielle also enjoyed a career in the Brazilian Airforce where she received numerous commendations. She combines her natural musical abilities and her military background to create a very efficient and nurturing musical atmosphere for children of all ages.

Brett and Danielle understand that music is for everyone and after working with Brett his student's passion for violin and viola provided crucial "supplemental" admission material for acceptance into top Universities in America such as Brown, Cornell and NYU where they continued their love of music as an extra curricular activity while attaining advanced degrees in the humanities and the sciences.

Now the Deubners are accepting new students in violin and viola of any age and level into their Family Music Studio.  It is crucial to build a solid foundation and that starts with a clear understanding of correct posture, proven practice techniques and a genuine love of music that will translate into everything from enjoyable chamber music experiences with friends and especially noticeably improved overall scholastic achievement in all areas of study.

It takes commitment from all three of us! The parent, the teacher AND the student must be fully engaged in this process so regular consistent practice and weekly lessons can take root.
