Service Description

Even accomplished guitarists often miss key elements in the learning process. Phil Circle developed his method from decades of examining his own shortcomings as a guitarist, what other teachers missed along the way, and most of all; what students came to him with or without. Every guitar teacher at Phil Circle Music is given this foundational method to work from and share with every student. Many guitarists don't have everything they need to become a great guitarist. We're here to make sure this doesn't happen to you. Building a solid foundation is the key to understanding and mastery of the guitar. Whatever your style of choice, this highly challenging and wonderfully diverse instrument requires that you not shy away from the middle of the fretboard or the ever-challenging theory. There's no real mystery in it. The mystery is in the human that plays the instrument. So, let's remove the mystery from the fretboard. Most of what I've seen (like 90%) in the way of guitar method books, is an unfortunate waste of trees. Most guitar lessons focus on getting you to imitate this and just do that like this other musician. We're not parrots. Imitating is not the same as emulating. These issues aren't anybody's fault. It's just that teaching kids was never properly evolved to the teaching of adults. But if you're an adult, you ought to be treated and taught like one. Let's work together to build your skills. A big thing I do is go through your existing knowledge and look for holes. Then we fill them. If you're just getting started (yep, I teach beginners), we build you a solid foundation from the start. -Phil Circle
