My teen-age son has been taking guitar lessons from Ryan for 5-6 months. He loves it. He thinks Ryan is "really cool". My son wanted to learn songs from a genre of music that Ryan wasn't very familiar with but they researched it together and found the exact music that my son wanted to play. We recently attended a recital and it was so fun to see all of Ryan's students and how well he knew each student personally.

Hello! As an adult beginner seeking to learn the guitar, I can tell you several things I've discovered through experience. Things I can state with complete confidence. 1) Learning to play guitar can become overwhelming rather quickly! With all the information available on line, through books and from friends who say they can show you, it's quite easy to waste a lot of time learning stuff that really isn't productive over the long haul. Sure, you'll learn quickly at first because you're starting from zero, but once you learn the fundamentals, now what? This is where the majority of guitarists languish for years rehashing the same old stuff and never really improving. You need competent guidance! 2) Speaking of competent guidance, I've had numerous teachers who were really good guitar players but after a couple of months watching them play, you begin to wonder why YOU aren't getting much better. They're good, you're not and you're not getting much better. You're wasting precious learning time. Playing and teaching are 2 separate issues. Being able to relay information is probably more important than the ability to play when looking for a teacher. Phil can not only play but excels at explaining music concepts so they are readily accessible to students seeking knowledge. He was the first instructor I was exposed to who had a prepared, written game plan. A step by step road map to mastering the instrument that he explains patiently and intelligently. He loves both playing and teaching the guitar and it is abundantly clear when you talk to him about the subject. I have yet to have a session with him where I didn't feel that I was better after our lesson than I was before it, and that is the main reason one seeks out an instructor. So they can get better! 3) Phil treats lessons like a professional. He's never been late or surprised by my visits. He is always prepared and that's one of the things I like best. He makes me feel like I'm his only student and that MY progress is what's most important. I'm not just a time slot to fill or a check to grab and cash. No ego or showing off his skills for large chunks of the lesson. My skills and my improvement is what matters most and my entire lesson, from start to finish, is devoted to that. 4) Music theory is a bit spooky, especially for the beginning student. The problem isn't the complexity of the subject but how it's explained and mapped out. Yes it can be complex but in order to truly understand the instrument, you must understand the underlying concepts of music theory. What I liked most about my initial interview with Phil was his interest in what I was looking to accomplish. I was questioned about my goals. What did I want to accomplish. Learn music theory? Learn to read notation? Learn to just sit on the couch and play the blues or rock or pop music? A combination of some of it or all of it? He had a path for any/all of it tailored to my wants and needs. I'm thrilled with the path I chose and my progress on that path but I'm reminded by Phil that the plan can change as I grow and learn which is as it should be. Flexibility in learning means more options which also means constant learning without stagnation or hitting a wall that equates to more wasted time. If you seek professional, intelligent and skillful instruction as it relates to the guitar, I urge you to seek out Phil and discuss your musical goals with him. He has helped me both understand music as well as the instrument. It's quite a thrill to honestly believe you are improving quickly at playing the guitar. I look forward to continuing to improve with Phil's guidance and honestly feel my goals are well within reach. Both my playing as well as my understanding of music is growing daily and I eagerly anticipate what the future holds for me and my guitar journey with Phil's assistance!

School of Rock

    This is best music opportunity for children interested in rock and roll. Our kids have been at the School of Rock for over 4 years and the rewards to them have been many. They have received excellent instruction in guitar, drums, bass, vocals, and on-stage performance and as well as attended many of the free workshops and fun get-togethers the school organizes. Most valuable however, is the weekly experience collaborating with the other students in band rehearsals. They truly feel like they're part of a rock band and need no other incentive than this to practice each day. The instructors and show directors have high expectations of all students. Students who work hard are offered additional opportunities to participate and improve. As for Stacey herself, we truly believe that it is her open, positive attitude that has created such a supportive, successful environment for the students, parents and staff.

      I took long-distance lessons with Unca T in the winter of 2016 and I got so much out of them! I've been playing guitar for years, but had reached a certain level and hadn't progressed in a long time. So, I had some specific skills that I wanted to work on. T. prepared lessons that were exactly what I was looking for and kept me accountable to practice. It was an excellent experience. The next time I have room in my budget, I'd love to take more lessons with him.
