Doug is great with kids. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in taking music lessons.
Doug is great. He makes my child feel comfortable and really know his music.
I'm a huge believer in method books. YouTube although an excellent tool for many things, is not great for learning a musical instrument instead of lessons. Why? Because the student will find the coolest thing and trys to learn it. They give up! It's too hard. It's like learning how to swim by jumping in the deep end! Method books start you from the beginning and mark your progress. The student can look back and see what was difficult a couple of months ago is now not so hard and feel good about that progress.
I have a degree in music from Valdosta State University. I have been teaching private lessons for over 25 years.
