Welcome! I am the owner/operator of Motif Music Recording Studio in Amherst Massachusetts, and professional guitar, voice and bass teacher. I also have my own bands: The Doug Hewitt Group and Dolphin Street with whom I perform my original music as as well as a blend of jazz and rock classics.

Music is my passion and I have dedicated my life to sharing my experience to empower people to achieve their musical goals. I am a professional guitarist, vocalist, bassist, composer, studio engineer, arranger, producer and teacher with decades of stage, studio and teaching experience. My services include professional quality instruction in guitar, voice and bass guitar, as well as studio recording. Check out the links above for details on each of these services. My goal is to help you make the music you love, whether it's learning that song you've always liked, to immerse yourself in a deeper understanding of music or to make your own CD.

I'm also available for hire as a vocalist, guitarist  or bassist for your musical project.

Please check out my site and contact me so we can get started making music!
