I have been an orchestral tubist and university teacher for the past 10 years. My students regularly have been featured in the region band, all-state band, scholarship recipients, graduate assistantships, regional and international competitions, and regional and international tuba euphonium conferences. I have a strong focus on developing the fundamental of brass playing, so the instrument acts as an extension of their artistry.

About Douglas

Dr. Douglas B, Jr is the Tuba and Euphonium Faculty at Winthrop University, where he teaches applied tuba and euphonium, directs the Winthrop University Tuba-Euphonium Choir, coaches brass chamber music, teaches brass methods, introduction to music technology, and serves as coordinator of recording

Dr. Douglas Black is not only an accomplished and extremely knowledgeable tuba player, but he's also a clear and thorough instructor. Tuba and euphonium players looking for their Master Yoda need look no further. Plus, he's a fun guy to work with and is flexible when unexpected life events come up. His rates are a bargain when you consider his level of experience and the quality of his instruction. 5 stars.

This is a high-quality studio. I strive to help students achieve goals small and large. I believe establishing proper technique and efficient practicing habits early and quickly opens doors.

My goals are:
-Provide a comfortable, encouraging atmosphere that inspires growth in and outside of music.
-Inspire a life-long love of music.
-Provide optional performance and competition opportunities in the community.
-Develop a work ethic that crosses over to other areas in life.
-Most importantly, we have fun at this studio.

I have been teaching singing for several years in a variety of styles. I have experience performing in a variety of genres. My students have gone on to perform in community and school productions, perform in church, and sing professionally. Within the first few lessons, you will be able to sing a song from memory, and soon you will have a full repertoire of pieces ready to go! I love working with students of all ages and skills, and I look forward to meeting you!

I have a simple, no-nonsense approach to vocal training, helping students build the vocal strength and coordination necessary to sing efficiently, using principles and exercises learned through over a decade of intensive vocal study in NYC.

Please be advised that I expect students to learn their music on their own (although I'll certainly give you some learning strategies, help with tricky passages, etc.). If you are looking for someone to "teach you the notes," I'm probably not who you're looking for. But, if you want to learn how to sing well and are willing to put in the work, I'd love to help you achieve your goals!

About Ted

My name is Ted D. and I have been teaching private lessons in both guitar and voice for over a decade. I began playing guitar at age eleven and continued into college, where I majored in guitar performance. While in college I began studying voice seriously, adding a vocal performance major to my de

"I started taking lessons from Dustin Newbold my Sophomore year of high school. I took his guitar class and learned the basics then moved on to bass guitar. He went at a pace that was not only easy to learn and memorize, but also seemed more exciting than what I would have thought learning an instrument would be. After the first year of guitar lessons, Mr. Newbold recommended that I move up from guitar class to actually being in the school band. The fact that he took me from knowing nothing about music, to me to joining the school band was an amazing feeling. This opened many doors for me, including a full ride scholarship to college for band and choir. I would highly recommended Mr. Newbold as a Music Instructor."
