I love seeing students challenge themselves then overcome. That can be the first time they've played in front of an audience or a capstone senior recital.
I've been teaching for over 30 years now and I still love teaching. I enjoy seeing a student progress. Helping in that process is very gratifying for me.
Philip is a great teacher! He doesn't just teach and help me learn the notes, he teaches the music.
His expertise of classical music is above and beyond. My son just graduated high school and has been playing violin since he was 5. The guidance and influence from Dr. Ficsor is tremendous.
Phil is a very encouraging and wonderful instructor. My daughter has learned so much and really likes him as well.
My daughter has taken lessons with Phil for several years. He is a great teacher. He is extremely knowledgeable and is dedicated to the students and to expanding his own knowledge and talent. I appreciate that he tailors his lessons based on age and is understanding of my daughter’s other school and sports commitments but also holds her accountable for her violin study commitments as well. We would definitely recommend Phil to others without reservation.
