Hi! I'm a warm and positive educator with years of experience helping students in music, math, and social studies. I have six years of public school teaching and private lesson experience in New Jersey, and I have recently relocated to the Austin metropolitan area. I am excited to help people further their knowledge and skills in areas they have a unique interest or area where they feel the need to improve.

It would be my pleasure to meet with you at your home, host you at my place, or work over the internet.

Doug is awesome! Doug is very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. I would recommend him to anyone desiring to pursue their musical interests. I feel totally comfortable with him teaching me the Flugelhorn.
