I'm John Patrick Douglas, and I teach Saxophone, Clarinet, and Flute.

I'm a professional musician, and I perform on all three instruments in various Jazz, Classical, Rock/Pop, and World Music contexts. If you'd like to learn more about my performance background or check out my upcoming gigs, please visit my site at www.johnpatrickdouglas.com

As your private teacher, I will provide you with the direction, coaching, and feedback to help you quickly learn and improve your performance.

"Hi John,
I wanted to thank you for the wonderful instruction you provided to my daughter and I with the recorder and flute. You are a creative and talented instructor who can relate to both adult and young learners. As beginning music students we really appreciated your patience and ability to make students feel confident and secure with the instrument and musical language. We look forward to more instruction with you in the near future. Thank you."

"Thanks, John, for all the help these past several months.  (My son) was moved to advanced band the day he met with the teacher, so THANK YOU AGAIN!"
