Testimonials about Providence Guitar Academy
Phil’s classes have helped to increase my guitar skills tenfold. He adapts to your knowledge and understanding of guitar, provides a customized curriculum, and is never short on answers when asked about music theory or its application to the guitar.
I came to the Providence Guitar Academy after mostly self-teaching myself for six years. Phil helped to correct many of my bad habits while helping me to better understand my instrument.

Phillip was a true professional. He showed up on time, very prepared and excited to work. Made me feel really comfortable very quickly. He really took the time to check in with me and see where I was in my process, and identified problem areas. In just our first session, he formatted quite a few varies exercises specifically for me that would help strengthen my fingers as well as improve my accuracy with hitting the basic and more complicated chords. Really gave me a lot to work on in just our initial session. It was exactly what needed.
-Jimmy B., Providence, RI
Providence Guitar Academy has great instructors with very reasonable rates. They're very friendly, patient, organized, and explains and demonstrates things in a way that is easy to understand. After taking lessons here, I understand the value of in person lessons rather than trying to teach myself through online videos etc. Highly recommended!"

We are so happy with Providence Guitar Academy! Our daughter Adeline is learning and progressing so much since beginning guitar lessons there. Phil is a patient and wonderful teacher, and we couldn't be more pleased to have decided to sign Adeline up for guitar lessons with him. Thanks Providence Guitar Academy!!

Phil is simply a great guitar teacher. He is as patient as he is gifted, and designs his guitar lessons to whatever your goals are. I've had many guitar teachers in the past, all very good guitar players, but Phil is the best and I am now learning to play songs that actually interest me, not just the standard guitar lesson method book material.
-Kyle V., Providence, RI
I've only attended a few classes here so far, but in that short time Phil has been able to show me things that have escaped other instructors. He is enthusiastic, patient and extremely adept at explaining what he is teaching. After many attempts to learn guitar I am feeling engaged and hopeful that I will stick with it this time. I have Phil to thank for that.

-Madeleine O., New York, NY
I've been taking guitar lessons from Phil at the Providence Guitar Academy for over a year. I used to take guitar lessons as a kid and hadn't really been close to the guitar in the last 20 years. Starting lessons with Phil was like picking up from where you left. He's very knowledgeable about various styles - from rock to classical to everything in between. He's a fantastic and very personable teacher and will help you with all aspects of music -- technique to theory. Phil is also very adaptable in that he'll teach you things you want to know/play. My playing, knowledge of guitars / equipment and interest in exploring new music has increased manifold since I started with Phil and I can't recommend him enough.
