When I change from D to A I get a little string buzz from my fingers moving to the next chord.Is this normal to happen in some instances when you are changing chord positions?Thanks for your time and effort. 8)

I've been having the same issue. I've looked around and everything I've seen says this is normal until we get better at changing chords smoothly.

In terms of changing from D to A, what I've noticed is that when I move my fingers, I slightly let up on ring finger on the D string, the anchor finger. I've made an effort to keep that finger down and it's helped a bit. However when changing to another chord without an anchor finger, like D to G, I still get the buzz and that will probably be the case until I transition better.

Yes, it's normal. That said, if you haven't already, have a guitar tech check the action and setup on your guitar to make sure it is ideal. If the action is high, it could be contributing.
