    I have been working with Phil for close to ten years, and I can tell you the experience is always a positive one! He is a master musician who has the ability to explain things that a novice like me can understand. He is patient and always has his students best interests at the forefront of anything he does. I highly recommend working with Phil if you ever have the opportunity to do so.

    Phil is the best teacher I've had, and I've had quite a few. He guides me on the path of music, showing me the way, chiding me when I stray, encouraging me and my strengths, helping me with my weaknesses, and encouraging my love of playing.
