I have been playing the guitar for 40 years and teaching for 20. I am very keen on teaching correct technique so that you can get your hands and fingers in the right place at the right time!
We can be creative right from the first lesson so you learn to make your own music.
I am open to teaching and learning any genre – it’s all music to me !
I teach lots of people who have played for a while, but have missed out on learning essential techniques and knowledge of the instrument, so we go back to the beginning so they can get a complete picture of the guitar and music in general.
After the first couple of sessions I knew he was a good teacher – he gave me hints and tips which improved my technical skills very quickly. We spent 10 hours of lessons learning about jazz guitar and applying this to other songs. Phil always likes to keep things fresh and the best thing about him is his commitment to the musical side of things. He’s not afraid to take you over to the piano if needs be in order to demonstrate why, for example, it’s called a minor 3rd.
I noticed a huge improvement. I now feel more confident with strumming, fingerpicking, jazz chords and progressions; we even fine tuned some songs which I already had learnt. Phil’s versatile, easy to get along with and he tells it as it is. I’d recommend him for any beginner or intermediate who wish to improve their guitar skills.
