Waldorf School of Rock  
Doug Fraser, the part-time guitar instructor at the Portland Waldorf School rivals Jack Black with his own Waldorf version of School of Rock. Teaching a repertoir from Pachelbel's Cannon to Joe Satriani, he is throwing his heart into brining music to the souls of Waldorf students. "I'm showing them that playing the guitar is not a destination but a journey during which you get to play this amazing thing, the guitar,' Fraser said, 'and you can't enjoy that journey if you're frustrated. I want kids to fall in love with the sound of this instrument and to make others follow them."

"It's utterly awesome working with Doug," said 17-year old Waldorf student Julian Munske, "because I want to be a professional player, too, and he's got so much to teach me."
