I have an MM in voice and a BM in music education from Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY. While living in Rochester, I helped over 100 students of all ages explore their musical potential and develop their skill sets.

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. After high school, Philip 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 O
range 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.

Rachel Hall is one of the most thoughtful and detail minded musicians that I've worked with in my 25 years as a professional performer and teacher. She is intelligent, patient, knowledgable, and responsible. In addition to having a thorough knowledge of the viola as a teacher, she is a very fine performer as a soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral player. I can give her my highest recommendation!!

Rachel Hall is a fantastic musician and dedicated teacher. I have worked with her as a performer and have also witnessed her teach high school viola students. Her sense of organization, her passion, and her joy make her a special human being and very caring teacher. She is enthusiastic to share her knowledge with children and will go out of her way to make each student feel important and special. One time, I watched her perform side by side with one of her students in a prestigious venue, and he became so nervous, he got sick on the stage. She proceeded to take him backstage and take care of him until his parents could help him, even though she missed a significant performance. Her heart and skills make her an excellent teacher.

*Lesson Details*

The first lesson will consist of evaluating the student's musical ability so I can proceed and create a lesson plan that is personalized to every student's unique needs. Beginners with no prior musical knowledge can expect to receive insight on basic positioning for the instrument, technique, music reading , topography of the instrument and most importantly, learning music. Lessons will be geared to the student's musical goals that will go on par with the proper technique and knowledge to make it frustration free.

Players with previous knowledge will have lessons adjusted to their needs.
