    Douglas is one of the most open-minded people I know. Over the course of working with him we became good friends and he has been my mentor and voice of reason when it comes to music. He is currently teaching me piano, drums and the guitar and he is an expert in all three. He is an unbelievably talented musician and couldn't be more happy we matched up. Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to your students Doug!

    My 7-year old grandson had a trial lesson with Douglas and here is our experience: 1. He arrived 5-minutes before the start of the lesson 2. He began teaching him how to read music almost immediately 3. Throughout the lesson he provided praise and correction was done gently 4. He also asked questions of my grandson intended to engage him and get to know him better 5. At the end of the lesson, he provided the adults feedback. 6. Also at the end, my grandson asked Douglas when he would return! We are very satisfied with Douglas and anticipate a great learning experience for our grandson.
