I am very happy with my decision to choose Phil as my guitar teacher. Through the virtual platform we are able to have productive and organized lessons each week. The lessons are not identical to other students, but rather tailored to improve my weaknesses and ensure I'm having fun along the process. Highly recommend!

I had my first lesson today and it was wonderful! Seeing as I have years in piano and violin experience, Phil met me where I was at as a musician. He is full of enthusiasm as a teacher, and focuses on mastering the basics first. I can already tell that he will help me build a strong foundation for learning guitar. Stoked for my next lesson with him!
