Philip L.

Tallahassee, FL

About Philip

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. While there, he was able to refine his skills and learn a great deal about the interpretation of music on the guitar.
After receiving a Bachelor’s of Music, Philip became an instructor at University High School in Orang
e City, Florida. There he directed the guitar program, which he created from the ground up, 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, he was awarded a full scholarship to the University of Akron as a Teaching Assistant and later received his Master’s under the tutelage of Stephen Aron. Philip is currently working towards his Doctorate at FSU. Philip has played a number of feature concerts and 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 will be evaluating 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 - Songwriting - Digital Arts - Recording - Music Production - Theory - General Music

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.

Brandi L.

Tallahassee, FL

About Brandi

I am willing to teach any and every one with a love for music and who is eager to learn!! Music is a universal language..a healer..a teacher..peace..love..joy..Music is everything!! It has been my sanctuary; my place where I may release and lay down my burdens. I find solace in knowing that each time I share or teach, a life has been blessed. I graduated from Florida A&M University with a bachelor's in Vocal Performance (classical concentration). I am extremely excited about teaching and encouraging more souls to flourish and share their gifts. My students will be consistently challenged and p
ushed towards their full potential!! I will give my students several opportunities to bless others with their gifts. They will also be able to look forward to a recital at the end of the year in which they will showcase their repertoire. Whether you are looking for beginner guitar or piano lessons, or contemporary/classical vocal training, I'll be sure that each student receives special care and attention. You will learn, grow, gain confidence, have ample fun, and you will fall deeper in love with the mere sound of music.
