Hello,

I was born with three great passions: for music, for children, and for teaching. This gives me the opportunity to put them all together and make the music experience a win-win-win situation for all who want to become more artistic and... smarter :)
I graduated in 1999 from the Art and Music High school with a concentration in Piano and voice. I started teaching even while in school, which gives me a 20+ years of experience and love-growth for children of all ages. Since I moved to Georgia in 2005, I have worked in the Buford/Swannee area offering group and private lessons for companies such as: Tickled Ivories, Musika, and Harmony Road Music School.
With the beginning of this new school year, I am relocating to Athens, GA. and I look forward to spreading the joy of music to this new and very unique city! Viva la Musica!

Cumming, GA

View Full Profile

In addition to guitar, I also offer beginner lessons for piano.

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.

"We highly recommend Phil to anyone looking for an excellent guitar teacher. Both our daughters are flourishing under his instruction. We love that he tailors his lessons to the individual student. He teaches everything from classical to contemporary including some of the girls favorite songs, which keeps them interested and practicing. He is extremely talented yet very humble and kind.

About Vanessa
Bachelor's in musical theater performance from Columbia College Chicago. Audition prep (acting/singing) and vocal technique for clients since 2007.

My critique during your lesson is always honest, so you know when I give you a compliment it is well deserved. I especially love working with non-singers and helping them find their voice. I always start with an assessment to see where your work is currently at and where we can go from there. I keep notes during your lesson, send you an email afterwards with your homework for the week, then I use those notes to think of personalized ways to improve your technique before your next lesson.

If honesty and results are what you're looking for in a teacher, I promise to be that teacher for you.

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether you're studying vocal technique or prepping for an audition wit
h me, each lesson starts with an assessment. Then, we start with where you are at that moment and push your technique to the next level. Afterwards, I will send you an email with notes from the lesson and your homework.

My goal is cultivate your technique and discipline to take you to the next level of your performance.

*** Studio Equipment ***
-Digital piano
-Large mirror (to see your technique)
-Sound-proof practice room
-Parking

*** Travel Equipment ***
Digital piano for in-home voice lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Beginner voice for non-singers, new singers, or singers that have been out of the game for a while.

Audition prep for both film/stage acting and singing auditions. (Great results!)

Justice was the perfect piano instructor for me. I wanted to learn one specific song to play and sing as a proposal to my girlfriend. Justice helped me learn it in only 5 lessons, even though I had never played piano previously! He was skillful, encouraging, and fun! Justice made the most of each lesson to ensure that we met my goal. The engagement turned out beautifully; 'she said yes'! And my fiancé was quite surprised that I could play piano. Thanks Justice!!

My specialty is beginners, and I'm great with kids of all ages! I usually start with the Bastian Piano Basics series, which are great for teaching young children the basics and helping them progress at their own pace. I am very good at customizing teaching methods to meet students' individual needs, and I have a lot of experience being able to motivate students and get them to care about what they're learning.

About Camille
Hi, I'm Camille! I have a passion for music, and have been playing piano since I was 6 years old. I have picked up a few other instruments along the way, and I firmly believe that once you learn the piano, you can learn to play anything!

One of my talents in teaching is getting students to care. Not everyone is as passionate about music as I am, but I believe that through setting goals, tracking progress, and earning incentives, I can get anyone excited about learning the piano!

Focused, dedicated, respectful, but also always warm and fun. I'm proud and thrilled that she went on to teach as well, but not surprised. I always knew she would go on to an inspiring career as a performer, educator, or both. If you or your child have the opportunity to take lessons from Camille, don't miss it!!
