I want to help
Doug McMillan is a guitarist based in Birmingham. He performs at venues big and small around the country in many diverse contexts. Doug has been extremely fortunate to have been taught by Dave Cliff, Mike Walker, Jez Franks, Percy Pursglove, Zsolt Bende, Mike Williams, Simon King, John Taylor, and Fred T. Baker.
As well as performing, he enjoys helping people discover the many great things about music and the guitar through teaching. Doug will graduate from Birmingham Conservatoire in 2013 with many exciting musical projects in the works – he is currently writing new material for a recording coming soon.
I teach electric and acoustic guitar to all abilities privately at students’ homes in the Birmingham area, lessons can also be arranged over Skype. Tuition is planned around your goals and tastes, ensuring that what we work on is meaningful to you.
Specific areas I can help you with include: learning songs, band skills, effective practice, listening/ear training, technique, improvisation, sight-reading, and theory.
Through studying at Birmingham Conservatoire I have had lessons from many great teachers and I gig up and down the country at venues big and small
