Hi! I'm Adam Douglass and I want to teach you the guitar!

I am currently accepting students of all ages and all skill levels, from total beginners to advanced players.

Brooklyn Guitar Teacher

Have you ever wanted to learn:

How to read music/notes? Scales and chords? Songwriting techniques?
How to play your favorite songs? Music theory? Improvisation? Jazz standards? Chord melodies and chord solos? Playing to chord changes? Reharmonization?

You can learn all of this, and more!

I teach electric, acoustic, slide, and left-handed methods, 6 string or 12 string.
Whether you want to learn jazz, rock, funk, blues, or country, I can teach it to you in a fun and focused learning environment.

Studio and Student 18.jpg

Take  lessons in my private Bushwick studio.

You don't need to bring a guitar when you come to my studio, as I have guitars and amps you can use for your lesson (but you do need to own or rent one for practicing at home!). My studio is conveniently located off of the  G, M, J, and Z trains on the border of Bushwick and Bed-Stuy (G: Myrtle/Willoughby, J/M/Z: Myrtle/Broadway).

Still Not Sure?

I understand!

Taking lessons with someone who you have not yet met can sometimes be intimidating, so before committing to a lesson or a package, I'd love to discuss your goals, concerns, playing style, abilities, or other questions that you may have about your musical journey.

Let's get to know each other!
