As a teacher, Doug personalizes his approach to each student - from beginners as young as five to aspiring professionals - in order to most successfully develop their skills and musicianship. He has an unusual ability to gain the trust of, inspire, and motivate students of varied musical interests and backgrounds. Their achievements include awards such as "Artist of the Month" (Episcopal Academy) and "Best Overall Orchestra and Chorus member" (Unionville-Chadds Ford SD); membership in the Chester County Youth Orchestra, selection for the PMEA Annual String Fest and numerous selective school ensembles; and they have been chosen to perform solos with many school classical and jazz ensembles.

Doug is certified in Early Childhood Music Education by both the Gordon Institute and Music Together. He began violin studies in New York with Margaret Rosenak Berend, a student of legendary Jeno Hubay at the Budapest Academy (where pioneering music educator Zoltan Kodaly taught). Since coming to the Delaware Valley on scholarship to attend Swarthmore College, Doug has studied violin with Davyd Booth, Paul Windt, David Arben, and Jeffrey Michaels. He has also undertaken graduate studies in Music Therapy.

A brilliant and versatile soloist, Doug Jasik has also appeared with Tony Bennett, Peter Nero and the Philly Pops, Diana Ross, Filarmonica de Caracas (Venezuela), Pennsylvania Pro Musica, Orchestra 2001, Viennese Orchestra of America, and the AVA Opera Company. As a jazz violinist and a composer, Doug is committed to exploring music of different cultures and studied composition and jazz with Dennis Sandole and Vic Juris.
