    Phil is one of the best bass/guitar teachers around! I was really nervous to start lessons, but he is extremely patient and motivating as a teacher! He curates lesson plans for each visit that focus on specific learning points based on your experience level. He is super accommodating with my scheduling, pricing and even travels to my location. I HIGHLY recommend him for guitar and bass lessons!

    Phil is so great to work with. He meets you where you’re at and makes lessons fun by helping you learn songs you love. He also has given me great drills to do at home to improve my hand strength and strumming patterns. Would highly recommend lessons with Phil! He is wonderful!

    I really like working with Phil! he teaches at a great pace and does a great job of explaining how i can sound better while playing. After 2 lessons so far with Phil i can see myself already improving. He also is letting me learn a song that I am interested in which makes me feel a lot more motivated. I would recommend phil to anyone but especially those that are just starting to learn!

    Frequently asked questions

    I like to have a conversation get to know the student and their goals and depending on their goals and priorities, put together a path for them to succeed. 

    I like giving weekly exercises so they can practice at home and improve and I use google classroom to organize all the material.

    Every two weeks I check with the student to make sure that they are still happy and motivated and if for any reason they are not feeling that they are progressing or they are not happy with the rhythm of the class and want to advance faster I can always change the path so we can be both be motivated and entusiastic. 

    Well I Studied computer science and I taught coding at the university, so I have experience teaching, and while I was getting my degree I kept playing live music and recording albums with my bands and projects, so I feel that I have experience in both worlds. 

    Guitar for me is everything I used to practice between 4 to 6 hours daily that's what helped me to get to the level that I have today and in that process of learning I was also teaching my friends and doing workshops about guitar that was when I was 14 years old after that, I took guitar even more seriously and I had private classes with a teacher until I was 19 years old those classes and time help me a lot to undertand music and apply it to my projects, I'm fortunate enough that I discover my passion when I was young and now I can motivate and transmit that knowledge to other people. 

    Guitar instruction Rates:

    60 min class: $55

    45 min class: $40

    30 min class: $35

    When I was 15 years old I went to a few free guitar lessons, and at that point, I was good enough at guitar, that the teacher made me his helper because there were too many students, since then I kept teaching friends and people that were interested in getting playing guitar, in the meantime I was taking private classes and improving myself to be a better teaching and also guitar player. 

    teaching for me it's been always a joy, I love sharing knowledge and learning new topics too and my parents told me that when I was in fourth grade I told them that I wanted to be a music teacher, and here I am doing what I love the most. 

    I worked with students that have some base and knowledge on guitar or other instruments and the learning curve is a lot smoother we progress fast and steady. 

    I also worked with students that was their first time grabbing a musical instrument and it's my favorite because their excitement and energy to learn new stuff bring me joy and reminds me of myself when I was just starting. 

    I would tell them to make sure that the teacher listens to you and that he is passionate about what he does because I had teachers that they would be looking at the clock the whole class because they had another student coming after me, I am not one of those guys I give you 100% of my time and if we need to stay a few minutes later that totally fine!
