Meet Instructor Douglas Seth

I believe everyone can enjoy learning the guitar. This has been my steadfast belief throughout my teaching career. With dedicated practice, I have seen students with even the most modest natural ability fulfill their potential. It is truly a pleasure watching a student accomplish goals they never thought possible! I have created customized lesson plans for both amateurs and aspiring professionals. Everyone, regardless of their age or ability, is capable of making music! Whether you play electric or acoustic guitar, I can help you. Get in touch today so we can start working together.

It can be difficult to find a reliable teacher who is able to teach advanced technique and interpretation along with advanced theory and composition. As an experienced and passionate guitar instructor, I believe in an approach that gives students positive, constructive ways to learn. I design my lessons according to my students’ needs, with an emphasis on confidence-boosting activities.


... As a "forty-something" beginner who previously only dreamed of playing guitar, I appreciate Doug's expert advice and calm yet uncompromising instruction that have kept me motivated and progressing...    ~ Debbie
