Phillip Z. Chandler, AZ

Ukulele students start with five subjects.

1) Technique is concerned with the development of the physical mechanics involved in playing the instrument.

2) Scales are a part of basic music vocabulary and building blocks of the musical language.

3) Chords are also basic vocabulary of the musical language.

4) Note reading is not required for every student. It really depends on the students' goals. However, I strongly encourage everyone learn to read musical notation, (more than tablature). Literacy in reading music is analogous to literacy in reading in our English language. Can you imagine how much smaller our world would be if we couldn't read?

5) Songs utilize the skills and concepts of all the previously mentioned subjects and are the goal of studying music. The student chooses what songs they want to play, guided by my suggestions; Jazz, rock, blues, country, bluegrass, R &B - "How deep is the ocean, how high is the sky?"

About Phillip

I teach music. The guitar, bass guitar, and ukulele just happen to be the particular instruments I choose. Music as a language, discipline, and art, is the goal. I've been teaching, performing, studying, composing, for some thirty years. I've studied and gigged in the classical, jazz, rock, blues, R & B, and country idioms. I've taught composition and improvisation to instruments other than guitar, (vocalists, fiddle, sax, piano, trumpet) I've taught all ages and levels. I currently pursue a doctorate of music in guitar at university. Students learn many things when studying with me. They learn physically how to play a particular instrument while learning music as its own language. Students learn how to learn, learn self-discipline, and access their ...

Really encouraging teacher

It has been a real pleasure to have Phillip as a teacher. He is so positive and so encouraging. Although we've only just begun, Phillip has provided a good foundation (and the encouragement) to continue to experiment and improve my skills. Thank you, Phillip. I've really had fun working with you! (The next comment has nothing to do with Phillip, but I do find Skype lessons a bit awkward. But that's just me!)

Great teacher

I wasn't sure how taking lessons via Skype would work, not having that in person interaction, but it's been really great. Phil is a really good teacher and has an immense amount of patience and encouragement. Even when I haven't had any time to practice and I'm struggling with the lesson, he insists that I'm doing great and boosts my confidence. This is the first instrument I've ever played and I've appreciated the bits of music history he's thrown in to help me connect things and the lessons are always so much fun too.

About Richard

I started taking piano lessons at the ripe age of 4, but I quickly found my calling on the guitar. At the age of 20, and with 13 years of playing experience, I graduated from the Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery (guitar building), after building both an acoustic and an electric guitar and receiving repair certification from Fender.
I later completed my Bachelor’s Degree of Music in the field of classical guitar performance, at ASU in 2007.
During this time I expanded to other instruments such as the Ukulele, Banjo, Mandolin, Dulcimer and Bass Guitar.

I am involved with a number of extra musical activities that are available for you. First, I am part of a weekly jam session where my students meet and jam on a rotation with other music students in the phoenix area (drummers, ...

Excellent teacher!

As a beginning guitar player, I could not have been more pleased to have had Richard as my teacher! His knowledge, experience, and passion for guitar (and music in general) is outstanding.
I really found my learning experience with Richard worth while due to the fact that I wasn't simply learning how to play the guitar - I learned about music theory and why guitar is played the way it is.
I could easily take what I learned in Richard's class and apply it to other instruments (aside from the physical aspect).
Once I'm in a position to take lessons again, I will not hesitate to be Richard's student again!

From a True Beginner

After taking lessons from Glen West for a little over a year, I am able to make serious contributions to my church praise and worship team. Through Glen I have been able to develop my own style of playing that is different than other guitar players I meet. Glen’s instruction is more than learning basic chords, the pentatonic minor scale, and Smoke on the Water. Along with the guitar, Glen West teaches music theory. Now when I look at the guitar I see chords up and down the fret board with many musical possibilities. If you are serious about learning the guitar I highly recommend taking lessons from Glen West.

Great Guitar Teacher

I have taken guitar lessons before and it was focused mainly on learning to play songs on the guitar. Like many others, I was a guitar player but not really a musician. If you want to learn music theory, Glen has a method that is fun and interesting that will transform the guitar player into a musician. In addition to this, he reserves time in each session for the student to learn new tunes or guitar techniques of choice. Glen is extremely effective, organized and patient. He will guide you to your goal no matter what level of player you are.

About Benson

I have been tutoring math for years to kids ranging from 5 to 19 in areas ranging from elementary maths to College math courses like Algebra 1010/1050 and Pre-Calculus.

Bluegrass banjo and Ukulele skills are my strengths and I can teach your children to play any Disney or Pop song that they wish to learn, which makes learning basic skills FUN.

Laura P. Phoenix, AZ

I have been teaching ukulele for 5 years. I teach in a therapeutic style, using my music therapy training to be as observant, adaptive and flexible as I need to be for the student's benefit. I teach at the student's pace and to their interests, while building their musicality, music theory, and performance skills. I often incorporate singing into ukulele lessons as well. 1-2 times a year, we work towards building a repertoire of 1-4 pieces (depending on the student) to play at a local assisted living facility or skilled nursing facility.

About Laura

I have been teaching music lessons for 13 years. I teach piano, flute, guitar and ukulele. I have played piano for most of my life, then started playing the flute in elementary school, then the guitar and ukulele in college.

I attended California State University, Northridge, where I received my bachelor's degree in Music Therapy. My music therapy training has helped me to be more observant, sensitive and flexible in my music lessons. I am better able to tailor music lessons to my student's abilities, interests and needs. While I do not provide music therapy in music lessons, I do use a therapeutic approach when teaching music lessons.
