As a choir conductor and church musician, I encountered all kinds vocal challenges from classical style to contemporary one. I'm very happy that Dr. Douglas is able to answer every question I brought to him. His experience and knowledge directly helped me toward my own breakthrough in vocal performance. I highly recommend Dr. Michael Douglas!

Extraordinary, perceptive instruction

Michael is my first and only voice teacher. I came to him because I wanted a more comfortable and confident singing experience. With kind and patient guidance, I am learning to sing like myself and not copy the performance of professional singers on each song. Michael coaxes your personal sound right out of you! I am finally free to sing like me.....

Paul L. West Haven, CT

About Paul

With a Master's in Special Education from SCSU in New Haven and a second Master's in Psychology from University of New Haven, I combine Teaching with Counseling to pay close attention to underlying skills deficits so we can go back to the confusing areas that students need "catching up" in before learning anything more, thus avoiding anxiety, such as Math Anxiety. I build strength and confidence so that Math is easy and do-able. I also have a PhD. in Counseling Psychology and I use psychology as a Licensed Massage Therapist and Bodyworker in my home clinic to increase relaxation, but I do not use any Massage Therapy or Psychology in tutoring and teaching. My clinical laboratory medicine experience as MT(HHS) and H (ASCP) bring my Biology, Chemistry, Anatomy & Physiology academics real ...

"Paul was a competent student garnering high grades in his classes.  Not only did he make every effort to learn the material, he also made every effort to apply the information to the practice of massage.  Paul was always willing to learn different massage techniques and how best to apply a variety of techniques.

Paul is mature, very intelligent, professional and extremely capable.  He has excellent communication skills.  Paul is able to speak with clients about health and massage related issues in a very professional manner.  He is ethical, honest and considerate of his client's feelings and needs.

Paul readily combines the knowledgeable he has gained and is able to tailor the massage techniques to the benefit of his clients with ease.  [Paul's Massage Instructor]" Janis DrakeMS LMT

Guitar · In studio
I am in my 60's and all my life I've wanted to play guitar. Lou has made that dream come true for me. It's been only a year of taking lessons with Lou and I am already playing many of my favorite songs. I remember at the beginning when I doubted if I would ever really play a song and Lou kept telling me "you will be playing sooner that you think". Then it all started coming together and I now play with my friends and I can't express how thankful I am for Lou's teaching style which has allowed me to learn chords, rhythm patterns, songs and even finger picking. It don't get any better than this.

Guitar · In studio
My son and I have been taking guitar lessons from Lou for two years now and at the beginning we didn't know anything about playing guitar. Now, we know over two dozen of our favorite songs, chords, rhythm patterns and he's presently teaching us about finger picking. He has not only made my son and I learn how to play guitar but has given me another opportunity to enjoy doing something with my son and all of this adds up to an outstanding teaching job by Lou.

Guitar · In studio
I started taking guitar lessons at the age of 13 from Lou. When I first began my lessons I never imagined I'd be able to play like I can now. Now I am 16 and completed three years of lessons and I enjoyed all 3 years. Each year I found I progressed more and more and that's all thanks to Lou's teaching style. He is an amazing instructor. My favorite artist is Taylor Swift. He taught me how to play so many of her songs I lost count. I feel I am ready to advance in music theory and playing if I want to continue my guitar studies in college. I highly recommend him.

The Anatomy of a Hit Pop Song [Infographic]
