Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Are you interested in being able to confidently play lead and rhythm parts in a band? Want to learn to write songs? Want to learn to just strum along to your favorite records by yourself?

I will teach you or your child all of the knowledge and tools needed to do whatever your dream is on your instrument. My aim is to help every student achieve their personal goals on their instrument within the context of a relaxed and patient environment that promotes a love of music!

I achieve this by:

1) Individualizing lesson plans so that each student stays engaged and learns in the style that is best for them as learners.

2) Ensuring that students learn BOTH how to play their instrument as well as the theory behind what they are playing. This creates a more well-rounded musician that is capable of problem solving on their instrument and being able to play in a variety of settings.

I have been playing music for over 10 years and teaching private lessons since 2014. I ...

Chris is very very knowledgeable on the guitar and bass instruments. He is fun and very patient teacher. Highly recommend him!
Caitlin
Chris is great to work with. He's patient and very knowledgeable. I like that he focuses on music theory as well as playing. His approach to teaching makes for a well-rounded learning experience. I feel more confident learning songs on my own and understanding the structure behind them.
Jonas
Chris is an excellent guitar instructor. After picking up the guitar after a 40 year hiatus, he has quickly got me going again. Chris has been really good at customizing instruction to meet individual needs. For me, I wanted to get beyond just strumming chords. After just a few lessons, I feel we are well on our way to meeting that objective.

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Interested in learning guitar for the first time, or have been playing for a while and want to develop your skills? When I teach guitar, I try to focus as much as possible on the student's goals as a musician, so we can get you playing songs you enjoy in only a few lessons. I also encourage students to try learning by ear as much as possible to improve their skills and be able to apply it to their own music. If you're interested in taking lessons with me, be sure to reach out and don't be afraid to ask questions!

Phil is a consummate musician and is extremely knowledgeable and patient. He helped me to arrange several songs and encouraged me to write my own arrangements, as that really helps one better understand the instrument. I loved our lessons on learning all the scales and modes, too.
Orlando R.
Phillips teaching is very low key and suttle but very effective. I am astounded at how much he has taught me in a few weeks.

"Rich is top notch! My daughter has taken banjo and guitar (acoustic and electric) with him for about 6 years. She has also had several excellent teachers over the years, in piano, violin, and voice and great theory instruction in general. But when it came time for college auditions, she attributed a large part of her success in the theory portion to Rich's preparation. What's most special about Rich is that, even while he's teaching the theory, he ALWAYS keeps it fun. He's has a great formula - scales/theory, a little music history, songs/technique, fun. We'd give him 10 stars if we could."

"I observed my 6yr old daughter's first guitar lesson with Rina. She is patient while providing proper technique, posture, reading music and teaching new notes (remember, this is a 6yr old!). My daughter left the lesson with an ear to ear smile and immediately told me how nice Rina is and how she loved it. I am very pleased with our experience so far and my daughter and I are both excited to continue.

As far as logistics, Rina is quick to respond via phone and email. Although she is in Westfield, her location has plenty on-street parking."

How to Simplify Your Live Guitar Rig for Performances

Playing the guitar is such a fantastic experience. It’s so relieving to be on stage or in your designated practice space and just wail on your instrument. However, one of the difficulties of being a guitar player is deciding what gear is needed for live performances. We often get trapped in thinking that we must have the biggest and loudest guitar rig for shows, accompanied by a pedalboard equipped with 30+ pedals.
