At core of Doug Beavers' musical concept lies the belief that
one's teachings and experiences in the "real world" of music
must be propagated so that advancement in the art itself is
possible. Based on this belief, Doug Beavers has gained a
reputation as being a music educator with a direct, concise,
and intuitive delivery that excites all within attendance and
encourages listening ears of all levels to focus in on the
material at hand.
To this end, the following innovative programs have been
developed to introduce students to musical concepts that
were introduced to Doug by way of real-world musical
situations, in a multitude of genres. These ideas have been
translated into the common language that is used in today's
musical education and will be conveyed to the student by way
of masterclasses or more interactive clinics.
