Saturday Sessions



Good news, if cost is the one barrier preventing enrolling your child for lessons with the most comprehensive modern music teaching for guitar, bass, and drums, then talk to me.

Available on Saturdays: 10 weeks of lessons for juniors. Each Saturday for 10 consecutive weeks your child will learn how to: 

  • read music on the instrument;

  • learn how to practise and feel good about doing it;

  • learn the importance of beat;

  • play to songs as soon as possible;

  • jam with others as soon as;

  • potentially be rewarded for awesome playing. 


If you would like  your child to be involved  in the Saturday Sessions please contact me.





Introducing Philip Hartshorn's D.S.M.

The Big Picture: Learning Guitar, Bass or Drums

Daniel Thompson

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.

Phil is a patient and proficient teacher and his methods provide challenge and reward as you master your chosen instrument.
