I am available to teach or mentor on the dobro, guitar, songwriting, and production at Music Camps and am currently offering lessons via Zoom. 

I am currently charging 50.00 for one hour lessons and ask students to pay in advance via PayPal or email transfer to dougcox@shaw.ca 

I generally teach on Tuesdays and Thursday’s from 11 to 4:00 Pacific Time. 

Let me know if you want to book a time and we will zone in on what’s available and what works for you? 

If you are going to book a time please also take a minute to tell me more about what you are hoping to learn both short term and long term on your instrument.



If you are interested in having Doug teach or mentor at your camp, festival, or conference, please get in touch.
