I will make every lesson personalised to your tastes and musical preferences to make sure we really get the most out of every lesson.

I teach a wide range of ages however, I would recommend starting no younger than 8 years old.

I am a music lover and this reflects in my teaching style. I will always teach you a wide range of genres and styles.

I offer both acoustic and electric guitar lessons. I feel it is important for players to learn both.

1/2 Hour Lessons


I offer half hour lessons for all of my students. I feel that short but often is one of the best ways to learn the guitar. In a half hour lesson, we can cover all of the necessary aspects of your playing and improve them.

What my students say

& why they love my guitar lessons

Kim G

'Phil is an amazing teacher, my daughter was 6 when she started guitar lessons and terrified! Phil is amazing with children, he put her at ease and encouraged her. Whenever she was frustrated, he would guide her back on track; helping her work through her shortage of confidence.'

About Your New
Guitar Teacher

Friendly, helpful and focused on helping you to rapidly learn how to play the guitar.

I am an experienced teacher who has been teaching for years. As well as teaching I have performed all over the US as well as having extensive recording experience. I will use these experiences to make sure your lessons are of the highest quality.

I feel it is important that we incorporate the artists and bands that you love into our lessons. This will ensure that the lessons are always enjoyable & will make sure we really get the most out of your playing..

I like to make sure my students learn to the highest level. as well as this I like to make sure all of my students develop their own unique playing style over time.

The last and most important point is that I will always make sure every lesson is fun and enjoyable. Students who have fun whilst learning will always see better results than those who don't.

Location of Lessons

I currently take the majority of my lessons from my home teaching studio on Landess Ave & Piedmont Rd, San Jose, CA 95035, USA.

This is a great place to learn how to play because I have created a comfortable and homely environment where you can really feel comfortable whilst learning the guitar.

My full teaching address will be provided upon your first lesson booking.

Local Guitar Teacher Tips:

Guitar Shops in Milpitas:

There are some great options when it comes to music stores in the Milpitas & San Jose area. Here are some of my favourite picks.

Music Village is the most obvious option available and they currently have two stores in the area. If you are looking to buy a starter guitar or any kind of musical equipment then they are the best option in town. You can find them at 2971 Union Ave, San Jose, CA 95124.

The other option for a general all-round music store would be The Park Avenue Music store on 1717 Park Ave, San Jose, CA 95126. They have lots of options from guitars to pianos and everything in between.

Music Courses in Milpitas:

There are some great further education options in the area as well where you can really take your music education to the next level.

The first option I would recommend would be San Jose College. Here there are some amazing further education options including a music degree. Visit their website for more course information.

The other option I would recommend would be the San Jose Academy of music. Here you can learn about live performance and work towards taking part in one of their many live performances all year round.
