I teach the basics of learning acoustic guitar technique including: Selecting an appropriate guitar for the student, correct holding of the guitar, finger and hand placement, guitar notes and scales, guitar tablature, reading and playing guitar chords, strumming and picking, playing guitar songs from most genres and music theory. I also teach electric bass guitar and ukulele, beginner through intermediate. I teach guitar in most genres of music (except hip-hop and rap). I have been playing acoustic guitar since I was 10 years old, and have a great deal of experience in playing most genres and techniques, I am used to accompanying groups of people in different settings on the guitar. I learned to play ukulele as one of my first instruments. I learned to play electric bass guitar in stage band and in a rock group in high school. I love the guitar and it is one of my favorite instruments because of its versatility.

Guitar 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?"

A beginning student will practice all

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, blu

Phil is a consummate musician and is extremely knowledgeable and patient. He helped me to arrange several songs and encouraged me to write my own arrangements, as that really helps one better understand the instrument. I loved our lessons on learning all the scales and modes, too.
Orlando R.
Phillips teaching is very low key and suttle but very effective. I am astounded at how much he has taught me in a few weeks.
Max
Kind, super knowledgeable, and a clear communicator. Looking forward to the second one.

We're gonna HAVE FUN! Your lessons will be customized to your needs and what you want to do with your ability to play guitar. I can teach you either electric or acoustic guitar. I can prepare you for any genre as I include fundamentals (for example, scales and arpeggios) in your practice. I use Mel Bay's Modern Guitar Method books for reference and/or lesson work. I can help you learn how to play with a pick, how to finger-pick, how to sing and play simultaneously, and even how to sightread.

I'd never had any experience aside from singing in my car. Rob helped me learn many different exercises and helped me identify and unlearn bad habits I had picked up. He helped me learn to sing a lot of different songs that I enjoyed and is quick to map out the vocal notes on the piano to help me more easily understand and hit the notes I need to. Definitely recommend him as an instructor!
Jordan W.
Great exercises and feedback for singing. I felt much more comfortable singing with Rob than I expected.

Lessons with me are like playing a video game that trains you to be good at music. Every exercise we do will generate a score, and you can practice between lessons in order to “beat your high score” during the next one. I've had tons of young students achieve college level proficiency across multiple domains, and can promise you that you will see a huge increase in your technique, music theory, and fretboard knowledge in a very short period of time using my simple and fun program.

Beyond that, one of my favorite things to do with my students is to teach them the concepts and techniques at the core of their favorite music and use that knowledge to help them write their own original songs.

Morgan has tremendously helped my guitar skills through weekly progress tracking. He is very easy to learn from and is a fun guy to jam with! Overall great instructor.
Amanda
I have always wanted to learn to play the piano but just never took the time to find a teacher. I tried self study and watching videos but it just wasn’t doing the trick. I’ve been getting lessons from Morgan for a while now and it has been AWESOME! He’s super passionate about music so any questions you ask gets him even more excited to teach! I went from not knowing ANYTHING about playing piano to being able to play a song that I have always wanted to learn to play! Morgan is able to integrate learning foundational piano playing with playing your favorite songs. I would HIGHLY recommend Morgan if you want to learn to play piano!
Ryan R.
Great guy, fantastic instructor. Highly recommend.
