My Creative Keyboardist teacher has patiently guided me on my journey to recapture skills I learned decades ago and take me beyond them. He is intuitive, creative, and seems to know what I want to work on before I do. He stresses positive practice routines and takes his time explaining and demonstrating. My experience has been positive and uplifting.

As a 20-something with a love of piano and creativity and the desire to take my skills to the next level, I knew it was time to find a teacher. I’m so grateful I found Creative Keyboardist! My teacher brings his full presence into each lesson and adapts as needed to provide the most productive, fulfilling and helpful plan of action for reaching my creative goals.

I’ve had numerous music teachers over the years, but my Creative Keyboardist teacher, Doug, is the best teacher I have ever had, bar none. He was the first to ask “What do you want to accomplish? What are your interests? What are your goals?” That threw me at first. I had things in the back of my mind but the goals seemed unattainable, at least for the foreseeable future. Now, I am learning and making changes on multiple fronts. Those “unattainable” goals seem within my reach because Doug possesses a unique blend of traits: patience, broad and deep musicianship and technical knowledge, and superb teaching skills. He has an instinct for breaking challenges into small steps, and the superb ability to communicate and demonstrate ways to do things. I have found my pedagogical “home.”
