Limelight Music School

Instructor Spotlight: Doug Yeager - Guitar, Bass, Ukulele

Guitar instructor Doug has been with Limelight for nearly four years, and offers virtual lessons in guitar, bass, ukulele, and even beginner mandolin. He has a sophisticated online lesson setup that allows his students to see the correct finger positions for chords up close, with clear sound that makes virtual lessons feel no different than in person - a valuable skill in these uncertain times!

Doug has been playing music since he was 8 years old. His first instrument was piano. In 1997, he joined the middle school orchestra, where he learned how to play violin. Unfortunately, the following year the music program was cut from the school funding. Two years later, he received his first guitar for Christmas. He is a self taught guitarist, learning chords and strumming patterns from books and by watching other musician’s techniques. He started taking bass lessons, from a local music store in Southwest Florida, when the church he attended was in need of a bass player.

Doug has played for many different types of events, but most of his experience comes from playing in church - and his experiences on stage led him to encourage his own students to perform at our Limelight Live! events, recitals, and our recent Limelight Makes Music performance for International Make Music Day. He gives his students the confidence to share their talents with their family, friends, and the world.

There's truly never been a better time to explore a new music hobby - if you are interested in pursuing guitar, bass, ukulele, or mandolin lessons with Doug Yeager, reach out to us at 410-549-1617 or via email at [email protected] and we'll find the right day and time for lessons for you or your child.

Stuck at home with little to do? Learn music through Limelight Music School. Offering a FREE half-hour music lesson by Facetime or Skype, no obligation, any age or level. No need to struggle to learn from a recorded video or book. Get real-time feedback, focus on your unique style, make rapid progress and get instant confirmation. Check out this clip of Doug Yeager teaching guitar to one of his students via Skype.

The most talented local teachers offer lessons for all instruments, including voice. All ages, all levels welcome. Lessons are weekly, billed monthly, and no long term contracts. Call 410-549-1617 or message us for more more info! Limelight Music School now offers remote virtual lessons for most instruments. Here, one our top guitar teachers gives a lesson using video conferencing technology.

Our Story

Music enthusiasts with musicians and teachers in our family, having a music school was a natural transition for us. Originally located in Eldersburg, the business began as JAMs music in the Carrolltown Mall.

On August 31, 2013, Carrolltown Mall was demolished to make room for the new Walmart shopping center. On September 1, 2013, JAMs was reborn in our new location, and Limelight Music School was born. Located on the border of Sykesville/Woodbine/Winfield, we chose our new space to better serve all our emerging stars from the Baltimore/Carroll/Hoard/Frederick region.

Our school offers 3 private and one semi-private studios. Our low ceilings create the sound that musicians are always seeking. Our highly trained staff is helpful and courteous; and teachers have music education backgrounds or are accomplished musicians.

Our contracts are month to month as opposed to by semester or term. We do this so that our students have the flexibility to explore different instruments or aspects of music. Throughout the year we hold mini-jam sessions for our music students of all ages - this increases their confidence in performing and gives them the empowerment that comes with being in the limelight!
