^Alex is 14 years old in this video and had only been playing guitar for about 4 years. Within his 1 year of study at RMI, he had shown remarkable growth and ability to focus on the task at hand. Here he is performing the classic Van Halen track Eruption.

^Here is Alex four years after the famous “Eruption” video, performing a Guthrie Govan inspired solo.

Here’s what Alex has to say about Roberts Music Institute…

…”My name is Alex Douthitt. I am 18 years old and have been playing guitar since I was 10. At age 14, I started taking private lessons with Jay who dramatically helped improve my playing. I also took one of Don Mock’s theory classes and did a rock ensemble at RMI. With the help of Jay, I mastered “Eruption” at age 14. Shortly after, I stopped RMI. In the following years, I began playing and singing in various rock bands around the seattle area. I also began teaching my own private guitar lessons. I started taking lessons with Jay again during my senior year to prepare me for my audition with Berklee college of music. I also took voice lessons with Kelly during this time. I was recently accepted to Berklee and start this fall. I don’t think I would have made it without the help of RMI. The instructors at RMI are some of the best musicians there are. I recommend RMI to anybody serious about music. ESPECIALLY FOR THE GUITAR! I can’t think of anywhere else in the area that offers the experience you get at RMI.” – Alex Douthitt
