About Philip L.

Guitarist Philip L. was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, where he began his musical studies at a young age. He was accepted to Douglas Anderson School of the Arts, named by the Grammy Foundation as the top performing arts high school in the nation, and after graduating, received a scholarship to attend Stetson University. Under the direction of Dr. Stephen Robinson, the head of the guitar department at Stetson University, he was able to refine his skills and learn a great deal about the interpretation of music on the guitar. After receiving a B.M. in Music, Philip became an instructor at University High School in Orange City, Florida. There he directed the guitar program, and outside of teaching, Philip performed professionally (guitar and voice) around Central Florida in various groups and styles of music, including Rock, Pop, and Jazz. Since then, Philip has received an Master of Music from The University of Akron and a Doctor of Music from Florida State University. Philip has played a great number of featured concerts, and he has studied in masterclasses with great guitarists of our time, such as David Russell, Andrew York, Dusan Bogdanovic, Roland Dyens, Michael Chapdelaine, and many other artists. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *** Lesson Details *** The first step is an evaluation of the student's musical and technical skill level, then I build a curriculum from that point. As an example, a beginning student would learn how to read music, play basic rhythms, use proper left and right hand technique, and the notes in the first position on individual strings. After I have evaluated the current level of the student and their musical interest, I will begin to move my curriculum around their various needs. *** Studio Equipment *** I will have a music stand for you to use at your lesson. I require the student to have their own instrument so that they may practice outside of their lesson. *** Travel Equipment *** Music Stand *** Specialties *** Classical - Pop - Jazz - Composition - Songwriting - Digital Arts - Recording - Music Production - Theory - General Music

He is a great instructor, with a lot of patient. His classes are very easy to understand. I would highly recommend him.

I recommend Phillip as a guitar teacher. Besides being a very skilled guitarist, Phillip is very professional and reliable. He has a very laid back personality which really worked well for my shy 7-year-old daughter. He was patient and encouraging.
