About Phil
I've been playing guitar for over 20 years and teaching since 2008. Along with teaching, I've also been pursuing music recording, an endeavor which has produced two full-length albums and one that is still in progress that should be released sometime in 2018.

*** Lesson Details ***
When teaching guitar or any other instrument, I typically use a method book to guide the lessons. In addition to the lesson book, which will cover music-reading, we'll learn scales, chords and strum patterns, among other things. I try to tailor each lesson according to the student's skill level and individual musical interests.

After learning the basics, we can learn different styles of music, including rock, blues, jazz, classical, etc. I look forward to exploring these genres with you!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my own instrument. I would ex
pect my student to have or to rent his/her own instrument.

Phil Hodges is a phenomenal and inspiring guitar teacher. Over the past year of guitar lessons with Phil, my daughter's playing ability has rapidly advanced and she is so enthusiastic about practicing. Guitar lessons with Phil is a highlight of her week!

"Not only does Phil teach techniques and theory, but he nurtures a passion for music within his students. Thanks to Phil, I see my 10-year-old son growing in confidence and competence. He looks forward to his lesson each week and is motivated to practice regularly.”

My daughter has taken from Lucy for a couple of months on the recommendation of her middle and high school band directors. Her confidence and sound quality have greatly improved. Lucy is a patient and kind teacher, but pushes my daughter to do her bast.

While our daughter has been taking private flute lessons for 5 years, she just started private lessons with Lucy this year. Her progress has been tremendous. Lucy has helped her improve her technique, sight reading, and overall playing quality. We highly recommend her.

About Daniel
I am a experienced bagpiper with many years as a solo competitior and band competitor. I started when I was 12 after seeing Braveheart i was hooked. Students can expect to progress every week! The process is very slow going to start but very rewarding. I'm a very carefree, easy going, and fun individual to work with we will make the experience as fun as possible. I'm a grade 3 solo piper have won the coveted piper of the day award in stone mountain in 2014 beating everyone in my grade. I do enjoy playing alot of solo gigs and with my pipe band North Georgia Pipes and Drums. I have studied under Ed Neigh, Sandy Jones, Colin Maclellan, Jacob Craig, and Gabriel Nierman. These individuals have shaped my piping into what it is today. This instrument is unique and if you take time to learn you will be a center of attention whenever or wherever
you play!

Even though I wrote to him about it when I signed up, he was surprised to learn that I am not a beginner. Therefore, he was not prepared for my lesson.

Daniel is a great teacher. At first I thought he might be a little too "by the book" and didn't know how much he would be willing to adapt to my particular needs, but after just a couple weeks it's clear he's both in tune to what I need and what I'm ready for, and flexible enough to adapt the lesson in realtime to address my questions. Great experience.

Daniel has patience and is willing to spend extra time with me to figure out what I need to do to make the right sounds. He is accommodating and thoughtful and always gives his feedback in kind ways. He is able to hone in on the right areas for me to focus, and gives me that advice without making me feel foolish or inept! I enjoy working with him.

About Andrew
Hello, my name is Andrew! I am 19 years old and a music student at Kennesaw State University. I currently am a Music Performance major with a concentration in Tuba and Euphonium, euphonium being my primary instrument. I have been playing euphonium since I was 11 and tuba since I was 12, starting in middle school band. As a performer, I found a great deal of success in being selected as a member of honor ensembles in Georgia all throughout middle school and high school, and performing in many gigs since I started attending college in the Fall of 2016. As a young musician myself, I find it very easy to connect and understand with my younger students, mainly because I remember what it is like to be in their shoes very recently in my life. I think you will find me to be a fun and lovable teacher/friend if you decide to start taking lessons wi
th me. The most important thing to me is not only that my students are progressing and become successful musicians, but also that they enjoy making music more, driving them to be better themselves.
