Live Personal Online Music Lessons

Since 2007 I have been teaching people online. They are the same as having them in my studio. You will have your regular time with me just like a physical one. These are professional lessons.

There are heaps of advantages to having lessons online. They could be in combination with physical lessons, or totally online. Either way is fine. Distance from a specialist teacher is not an issue any more. Online lessons are available wherever you may be. 

So why should I be your choice as your online teacher?

  • Just look at what my students are saying.

  • You can read their comments about the benefits on online learning.

  • You can also read my articles.

  • You can also see what a online lesson looks like.

Online Lessons might be new to you but they are not to me or my students. 

Just contact me.


For the ever growing option of having lessons solely online I am happy to tell you about two highly skilled musicians. Introducing guitar player George Hartshorn and drummer Damon Spijkerbosch. Together we can help you no matter where you and the internet are.  







Phil is my first drumming teacher. “I couldn’t play before, but now I can, thanks to his great teaching! I have improved 100%. I really like the way Phil encourages me with my drumming. I love playing his electronic kits. I look forward to every lesson. I love playing and learning new songs. I like how kind and encouraging he is when I make a mistake.”

Phil Hartshorn is a great guitar teacher. He's friendly, funny and encouraging!!!

He is also very good at making people understand the situation. So don't worry about thinking that your kid comes home and tells you "I don't know what Phil was talking about". Because that won't happen.

If you are considering taking lessons with Phil but are not sure yet, can I say give it a go, no matter which method you use. After starting with face to face lessons, I was surprised how efficient the internet based lessons are and the ability to log in from anywhere you have a connection and device is great. Phil is a patient and proficient teacher and his methods provide challenge and reward as you master your chosen instrument.

Phil helps me learn how to practise and shows me how to measure my own skill. I would say to people who wish to learn that with Phil you will learn the proper way to play as opposed to endless strumming with little technique. I also really enjoy the jams.

The single thing in Phils lessons which has helped the most is his thoroughness and patience. I would say to someone who is considering taking lessons with Phil to just give it a go. If you need to use Skype for lessons don't worry they are great, and more fun than you would think!
