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.
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!
