Guitar Lessons Milpitas

Hello! I'm Phil Johnson, a professional guitar teacher based in Milpitas. I offer students of all ages the chance to unlock their guitar playing potential. I've worked with guitar players of all levels and continue to do so to this day. My lessons are very student focussed and I like to make sure our lessons are built around what you want to learn. Rather than me tell you what to learn, I prefer to hear what your musical preferences are, what your goals are & create a lesson plan that best suits you as a learner and player.

My Mission

Personalized Lessons

I will make every lesson personalized to your tastes and musical preferences to make sure we really get the most out of every lesson. I can teach a wide range of styles including Rock, Pop, Jazz, Metal, Acoustic and more. I like to make sure my students let me know what styles they feel comfortable learning and I will always try my best to accomodate. Our lessons can go in any directiont hat you feel comfortable learning in. Please remember to let me know your preferences when getting in touch.

I offer both acoustic and electric guitar lessons. I feel it is important for players to learn both. It's usually good to start on acoustic because this helps you build your finger strength however, if you're only interested in electric then I would be more than happy to teach you to play electric. I will take you through everything from understanding, chords, songs, song writing, technique, scales and more. During our lessons I will do the best possible job i can to prepare you for life as a guitar player.
