Songwriting is a unique and individual art. I can show you my process for writing and give you feedback on how your songs might be improved.

About Phil J.

Have you been trying to self-teach with YouTube videos and scattered internet resources? Feeling like you're stuck and just don't know how to put it all together? WHAT you learn is important. But HOW you learn it is the real magic to become a better guitarist.

I'll show you how to develop your guitar skills so that each new skill builds on your previous ones in a logical way to create a full system for understanding the guitar and music in general.

*** Specialties ***
On piano and flute, I specialize in classical, but can also teach pop and jazz.
On guitar, I specialize in rock,blues,funk, and jazz.
I've only done a bit of songwriting coaching, but have been a songwriter for 20 years and study it regularly.
