I teach every student the technical skills and applied theory necessary to work in any contemporary style on guitar. I use the "Be better than you have to be" approach. Want to be the best on a bad day? Be better than your chosen style requires. I studied classical and jazz in order to excel at rock, folk and blues.
You will learn to read music and charts for guitar, as well as movable scale patterns, movable chord forms, and how to apply it all to master the fretboard.
Have you hit a road block? I can help. Are you brand new and want to be sure you understand the instrument completely? I can help.
For those who wish to combine subjects, I also have a 90 minute lesson option. The more time you spend, the less you pay per minute. I have adult students who spend as much as two hours at a time with me.

About Phil
I've taught both privately and in the classroom (in schools from Pre-K to college, and through workshops), and have been a working musician and teacher for more than 25 years. I have a degree in music from Columbia College Chicago (Summa Cum Laude). My students have included everyone from absolute beginners to working professionals like myself. Many of my students have gone on to careers in music as performers, songwriters and/or teachers.

My approach in private instruction involves tailoring the lessons to the specific needs of each student, while making sure that he/she has the knowledge and technique to succeed in their creative endeavors. Whether it's a hobby or a potential career, I leave nothing out. You will learn the entire instrument. In cases where a student works in more than one subject, one session can typically be applied
to all/both of them. I strive to help every student find their own creative voice, while building the skill sets required to work in any style of music.

I also offer group lessons for 3 or more students. For friends at similar skill levels, this can offer a fun and more affordable way to learn a subject. It also serves as an additional motivator as the students in the group feed off of each other for ideas and inspiration.

Please feel free to contact me with the "Ask Phil a Question" button on my profile here. This can include questions about my method, or regarding days and times for lessons. What you see in my availability here is based on my schedule away from TakeLessons. I have students elsewhere and perform shows regularly. I may have additional times available and tend to have some flexibility. I teach worldwide online. Just ask.

As soon as you're ready to book lessons, you can use the Green Button after selecting your area of study, day and time. I will receive a notification that you've signed up. I will then confirm with you and send a questionnaire regarding your lesson needs within 48 hours.

Thanks for your interest.

I look forward to working with you!

He has a wide variety of styles and was very patient during the learning process of a song or riff. Definitely gonna keep going to him so I can shred and kick like Yngwie!

Dan is an amazing teacher. When I came to him first, I barely knew how to hold a guitar. He took me under his wings, and almost ten months later, he transformed my playing where I now actually sound like I'm playing a real song.

He is extremely talented, very gifted, and really really good at teaching. He excels in breaking down a concept, or helping me figure out the right way to play a chord, or a lick. He has also proved that he has an amazing ear, helping me learn a song (that he's never heard before), by breaking it down, and de-constructing it.

I am very happy with him being my teacher, and I look forward to learning a lot from him.

I highly recommend his services to anyone looking to improve in guitar.

I truly believe everyone has the potential to learn guitar. It is my personal challenge to be the guide that shows you the way to do so. It is simple, you are passionate about guitar, all you need is the guidance of an experienced teacher that cares.
My instruction is specific, sequential, demanding, and engaging.

Specific:
Being specific helps us breakdown skills, that seem impossible, into manageable exercises. I call it chunking. Once we master the chunks we put it together to easily play something that, in the beginning, seems so challenging.

Sequential:
That old saying, "Walk before you run", also applies to guitar! With your playing goals in mind, I am always guiding us down a sequential path, building skills that ultimately lead you to your musical goals. I have guided students from their first lesson through to preparing for their shows in some of NYC's top music venues.

have taught students from their first lesson through to preparing for their shows in some of NYC's top music venues.

Demanding:
The sweet spot is so important in learning guitar just like any other skill. Play with less than 50% accuracy and you are developing bad habits. Play with over 80% accuracy and you are not pushing your skills. I strive to keep my students learning at the edge of their abilities, thats where all the cool stuff happens!!!

Engaging:
It all comes down to what excites you about guitar, what makes you want to wake up at 6am and practice! There are so many things to learn with guitar; it is very important that whatever you chose to learn fully engages you. Nothing is worse than learning something that you do not have a curiosity about!

Abut me:
It is my ambition as a guitar educator to radiate enthusiasm and inspire my students to obtain their musical goals. In my years as a professional musician I have gained insight on how to bring the best out of my students. In addition to performing, my teaching career has given me many wonderful experiences. I have spent many years in one of the largest guitar schools in NYC, where in addition to being a mentor to guitar teachers, I have prepared for and taught private lessons, classes, and rock bands to well over fifty students per week.

Bio:
As a freelance musician bouncing between Europe and NYC, I am extremely grateful to experience the joy of playing with many wonderful talents from around the city, country, and world.

Born in a small town in the Midwest, I grew up listening to a diverse range of music. Through my parents I was exposed primarily to Celtic, Country, Folk, and Rock music. Listening to artist from these genres of music aided in developing a musical sensibility that is continually reflected in my playing. In my teens, I was immersed in a scene that was defined by heavy guitar riffs and shredding guitar solos. Rock and metal music ruled over the local scene and would also overtake my musical interest for several years. Later, in my early twenties, I was exposed to jazz music. The new textures, sounds, and rhythms that Jazz offered, changed my playing forever. Later, I spent my mid twenties traveling the globe performing as a guitarist with recording artist from both the UK and USA. Traveling and performing helped to give me a better understanding of music and art. Now in my early thirties I enjoy teaching, recording, and making music with friends!

I should also mention I am grateful to have had opportunities to study music with many incredible mentors. These mentors have inspired and given me direction that has not only influenced his playing but also my views of art and life. In Michigan I studied with the talented classical guitarist Carlos De La Barrera of Argentina, as well as Jason Werkema, a wonderful talent and mentor to many. While performing nationally and internationally I was given the chance to study with some great innovators. Through their lessons, and music, they remain highly influential in my playing. I am grateful to have studied with Adam Rogers, Gilad Heksleman, Jack Wilkins, Julian Lage, Zvonimir Tot, and Aki Ishiguro.

If you’re like looking for an instructor for any level of guitar study, you won’t find one better than Kyle! I had the good fortune of studying guitar with Kyle in a 5-course beginner series at New York City Guitar School; then continued onto a fingerstyle class, and a 3-level Lead guitar series led by him. At every point in study, Kyle was an excellent instructor. Not only is he a consummate musician and a versatile guitar player, he also has all the qualities one would want in an effective teacher: Empathy for the beginner, patience, and a sense when it’s the time to nudge or challenge students to the next level or technique. Kyle is agile in his command of the class, in group sessions he can address each students’ needs or stumbling block in the moment, answer questions, but keep the class moving and on topic. Individual sessions are not self-conscious or daunting, as Kyle fosters a encouraging and focused look at new techniques; breaking material down into student's level of comprehension. Corrections are always edifying and done with respect. Kyle shows great examples of where a basic lesson can go in the bigger picture, often accompanying and providing progressions to practice that day’s material; so a class might feel like a little jam session rather than just repetition. All of this, and he’s also a very nice guy with a great sense of humor; class is always informative and fun. Five stars!
