James’ story

James is a great musician and a gifted baseball player...

James started viola lessons when he was four years old, being taught initially by his sister Annabelle.  He started performing on stage with the Taubl Family band when he was only three.  James was accepted into the prep program at the Mannes School of Music in New York City when he was eleven years old and studied viola performance there with Adria Benjamin.   During his high school years, James began to realize that viola performance was taking a backseat to his passion for baseball, and so he stopped formal studies but continues to play often for various events as well as family concerts.         James has a rich baritone voice and has been selected for Connecticut Allstate choir for several years.  He has also done extensive work in Haiti with his family, performing and teaching viola and voice.  James has signed with Sacred Heart University to play Division 1 baseball in the fall of 2014.    Along with music and baseball, James also enjoys theater.  He has the lead role in many musicals and performs each summer as part of Long Wharf Theatre’s Shake It Up Shakespeare.  Highlights include Charlie in Willie Wonka, Barnaby in Hello Dolly and Benvolio in Romeo and Juliet. James plays an integral part in the music of The Asberry Boys band,  comprised of the four Taubl brothers.  His viola playing and rich harmonies add depth to the sound.   The Asberry Boys have performed extensively in Haiti, and enjoy using their music to help those less fortunate.      The Asberry Boys are working on recording a new album.  Their song, Tender, is a crowd favorite and can be purchased on Itunes.
