Phil Johnson

Certified Private Instructor

I'm Phil Johnson, a professional music artist, songwriter, and music teacher. I have a BA in music from San Jose State University and 20+ years of both teaching and performing experience. Over 300 students have come to me for lessons over the years and I’ve been able to help each one. Professionally, I’ve released multiple albums and DVDs and tour nationally.


I give my students the musical tools that they'll use in real world musical situations while minimizing the fluff and mistakes that I had to deal with. I want them to be well-rounded and self sufficient so they don't have to be stuck with a teacher forever.
