"I'm a relatively new guitarist, so I really appreciate Phil's patience. He will teach you at your own, individual pace and is happy to recap whatever you need him to. Highly recommended."

Anna - Teacher

“I started guitar lessons with Phil after figuring out that learning from a book just wasn’t practical or fun. After just a couple of lessons, I found myself wanting to pick up the guitar every day for practice – previously, it had just gathered dust! Lessons are always interesting, with a nice mixture of theory and practice, and always closely related to the types of music I enjoy listening to and playing. Rather than enforcing a curriculum based on what he’d like to teach, Phil always plans his lessons around songs and techniques that I’m interested in learning. Fantastic guitar teacher – highly recommended!”

" Finding Phil's number in my local music shop ensured that my banjo (Christmas present) became more than just another dust gatherer. Thanks to Phil's patience and skill as a teacher, I was able to learn the basics of playing very quickly and am now well on my way to being able to claim I can play the banjo!"

I've learnt more bass guitar from Phil than I did in the previous seven years with other teachers. I used to hate turning up for bass lessons with teachers who couldnt remember waht we'd done the previous sessions. Phil's lessons are always prepared. The lessons are always prepared. Phil has even got me using a pick ( something I've always resisted and altough I still prefer fingerstyle it's a technique I now understand and can use.

I have been taking lessons with Phil now for around 2 years. During that time we have covered a vast array of subjects and musical styles. Starting with the basics of playing the guitar the journey has took us from Rock n Roll to Country and moving into Punk rock and other Rock genres. Which ever style I was interested in Phil was able to help and teach me in an easy accessible way. Phil’s passion for music is infectious his ability to teach music on an individual plain is brilliant. I have recently started writing my own music and lyrics, composing my own songs using Phil’s knowledge and experience to guide me through. I would certainly recommend Phil to anyone whether they are beginning their musical journey or a seasoned player Phil’s lesson and enthusiasm for helping others caters for all.
