Doug Emery grew up in Kennebunk, Maine. His first instrument was guitar, which he studied under the tutelage of his uncle. After high school, he attended the Berklee College of Music. He graduated in 1991 with a performance degree, summa cum laude. From 1993 to present, Doug has taught private piano and guitar lessons, as well as performed an enormous variety of music with jazz duos and trios, blues groups, country bands, and original rock bands. Doug has recorded seven records to date and released two on CD Baby, which can be reached on itunes, Amazon, and other record stores.
Doug recently moved to Littleton with his wife, Melissa, and their 7 year old daughter, Magnolia. Doug is a very patient teacher, with the philosophy of having fun while learning (music is supposed to be fun and enjoyable)! Doug has led rock camps for many years, and he has also taught classes in music theory and jazz and blues improv.
