Online Specialist Learning


Sinc 2007 I have been teaching people the specialist skill of guitar, bass, and drumming in person in my office and in person on line.

Distance from a specialist teacher is not an issue any more. Specialist Online Learning is available wherever you may be.


So why should I be your choice as a teacher?


Just look at what my students are saying. You can also read my FAQs and Articles;


You can also see what an online guitar, bass or drumming lesson looks like.


Online Specialist Learning might be new to you but it is not to me or my students.

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!!!
